Les Tissages De CHANEL 17 Tweed Fuchsia is my second blusher from the label, but the first one I bought myself. Blusher fiends, be prepared to be enabled. muahahaha >:))
Ok rants first: like any other CHANEL compact, the case can only open up to 90 degrees, which is annoying especially when you're trying to maximize the use of both hands. Also, the brush is useless to me, it's rough, it pokes my cheeks and irritates my skin. Oh and the price will make you cringe too, I got mine at Rustan's for Php2,650 (approx. USD60).
Dear CHANEL, with the price tag for your cosmetics, you NEED to make better compact brushes! (This is why I love Japanese cosmetics - everything is just top notch, you get what you pay for.)
~ if you don't want to be have a major lemming, you can stop reading here. don't tell me I didn't warn you. ;)
macro shot of the tweed pattern:
Gorgeous POP of color for the holidays!
The texture is amazing, powder is finely milled and really pigmented, I had to buff my cheeks a little when I first applied this because I got overly excited, applied way too much and looked like an exaggerated doll -> not good! :P
The shade will make you look HAPPY! It may not be the most unique color out there, but its a very nice blusher to have in my collection especially because its LE (limited edition) and the tweed pattern is very chic which will please you for a while until it disappears with wear. Surprisingly, I don't own any dupes for this, and I currently have a LOT of blushers.
Its perfect paired with pinkish-nude lips!
If you're a fan of CHANEL, tweed, and bright colored blushers, RUN to your nearest counter NOW.
Have a lovely week ahead!
ps. I will update this entry when the shimmers come off and the "blush duo" shows up.
