The Reason Why I’m Banned from the Chanel Counter: Chanel Rose Temptation Joues Contraste Blush.

It has recently come to my attention that blush is the most frequently featured product here on Glitter Geek, which means that I probably have an unhealthy blush addiction.  What can I say — I love a magical product that instantly brightens the face, and Chanel Joues Contraste in Rose Temptation ($47, LE from the Fall 2010 Collection) is just what the doctor ordered.

Ladies, I have been missing out!  This baked powder blush is kind of amazing.  First of all, my nose has never before sniffed a blush that smells like roses.  Who here loves rosy scents? *raises hand*  Who just totally inhaled took a whiff of this gorgeous blush? *raises hand* :) LOL.

Alright alright.  Enough of that madness.

Chanel Joues Contraste blush just screams luxury to me.  It blends incredibly, goes on smooth and leaves my cheeks perfectly kissed with colour.  It layers easily for a much deeper, bolder colour too.  The powder is baked with a small amount of tiny sparkles that is not at all noticeable once it’s on, so you could totally fool the boys into thinking this is your natural cheek colour.  Surprisingly the brush isn’t bad either; it is soft and blends the blush nicely.

While it is not the most economical choice for a blush, Rose Temptation is a welcome new addition to my ever growing stash.  I really want to see her work together with a smoky eye.  I almost forgot to mention that it also comes in a velvet pouch, so I can erase my greasy finger prints from the shiny packaging! :)

So there you have it: the reason why I’m on a self-imposed ban from the Chanel counter.  Still, it’s fun to indulge sometimes, you know? :)

Speaking of Indulging…

Have you indulged recently?  Whether it is makeup, sweets (cake anyone?), or whatever your guilty pleasure is, I hope you have.  You totally deserve it!

P.S. Oh yeah, I got a haircut. :P
