Chanel Innocence Joues Contraste Powder Blush ($45) is a new Fall 2014 shade of Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush that launched with the Chanel Collection Etats Poetiques.
Let’s take a look!
I actually LOVE Chanel Innocence Joues Contraste Powder Blush but I was hoping for more of a dusky rose on my cheeks than it provides. This comes across very cool pink on me due to the warmth of my skin at the moment (I tan easily even slathered in a ton of SPF) so I’m kinda hoping in the Fall when my skin is a bit paler that it’ll be a bit warmer.
Chanel Innocence Joues Contraste Powder Blush is one of those shades you can’t over do and it has this really beautiful semi-matte finish that adds a nice radiance to my complexion. The texture is smooth and silky but I have to be very light during application as it likes to apply a bit patchy and uneven on my drier skin. Gently buffing ensures color goes on smooth and even!

I do wish the color was more true to pan but as you can see below it comes across a cooler pink. It’s one of those shades that is quite pigmented but for folks like me, those with a heavy hand, you can’t easily over do the color as it applies light and fresh every single time.
Chanel Innocence Joues Contraste Powder Blush is available now at Chanel.com and should be popping up on counter shortly.
