Chanel Canaille #89 Joues Contraste Blush

Chanel Canaille 89 Joues Contraste Blush

Over the past few years Chanel had many beautiful blushes added to their permanent range and released some truly outstanding limited edition shades. Somewhere in the process they must have changed their baked formula slightly, as the blushes are much softer and pigmented these days. Still, I often hear how their baked blush formula is not good – I strongly disagree. I own 7 of those, and except for the one that I bought a long time ago, they are all blushes of exceptional quality. Beside great formula, another reason Chanel is the top brand for me when it comes to blushes is that the shades they come up with are always complex and unique.

Canaille is another beautiful shade added to the Chanel’s blush range earlier this year. It’s a warm toned copper bronze. It is packed with a micro-glitter giving it a subtle pinkish luminosity. This makes it quite a complex and unique shade – when viewed from a certain angle it leans towards an orangey bronze (which is its base colour) and in others its shimmer makes it look muted and coppery. This blush would look great on warm complexions, but it is worth trying if you are cool toned as well. If lightly applied it gives a very flattering, sunkissed look to the cheeks.

Formula of Canaille is exceptional, long lasting, finely-milled and buttery soft – it can even be applied with fingers. Its very pigmented but it blends effortlessly and looks smooth and even on the skin. It’s an absolute winner.

  1. I love the fact that it is very unique. This is why I wanted to try but had a hard time pulling it off. I am natural leaning a tad cooler. I didn’t give up though, I go on trying ;-)

    1. I’m the same – neutral to cool! I combine it with warmer shades on my eyes and lips which works for me, but I think it’s going to be perfect over the summer when I get a bit of tan.

      1. Hmmm sad si me zbunila. ja sam ga pipkala i uopste nije ovako izgledalo mnogo je svetlije nije ovoliko crvenkasto vise je narandzasto. ali je bas lepo
