Chanel Le Blush Creme de Chanel Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Chanel Revelation Le Blush Creme de Chanel

Chanel Le Blush Creme de Chanel ($38) is a newly launched cream blush from the brand that has launched for the Fall season. Available in six shades Chanel Le Blush Creme de Chanel is a cream to powder formula that builds easily and leaves behind a luminosity, healthy dose of coverage with a silky to the touch finish that’s lightweight and long wearing.

I tried the shade Revelation recently and I absolutely adored it. It gains a Muse Approval right out of the box but after using it for a few weeks I must say I’ll be indulging in more of these gorgeous little blushes.

Take a look!

Chanel Le Blush Creme de Chanel comes in a small black compact that features a generously sized mirror. These blushes have an excellent long wear with a silky texture and a soft satin finish. You simply dip a finger into the pan, blend out, and go. It’s really that simple. The blush cannot be overdone in the least and it builds like an absolutely dream but never leaves your cheeks looking less than fresh and natural.

Chanel Le Blush Creme de Chanel Swatches

I typically have a difficult time keeping cream shadows on my face. They fade really fast for me and disappear within a three hour period at best but Chanel Le Blush Cream de Chanel wore for a solid six hours on me with very minor fading at hour seven. The formula has a soft, creamy texture and a satiny soft powder set after application. It truly is the definition of an excellent cream to powder formula. I love the fact that the shade I tried can be used with virtually any skin tone as it builds so easily. I also adore how incredibly light these are. I feel like I have absolutely nothing on my face at all! It’s completely weightless and does not accentuate larger pores or drier areas. I have drier skin and this wore flawlessly for me even on patchier areas of my face.

Chanel Le Blush Creme de Chanel FOTD

Overall, Le Blush Creme de Chanel is a stunning little blush that is well worth picking up! I’ve tried many cream blushes but this is by far the best I’ve tried. You’ll adore these if you’re a strong user of cream blushes.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.
