Émotion Joues Contraste has been released in the US about a year ago. It was released quietly and, as far as I know, it wasn’t a part of any collection. It is still available to purchase from nordstrom.com.
Thanks to a friend of mine who kindly purchased this blush for me while traveling around the States, I got my hands on this beautiful shade. It’s a stunning muted rose pink. Although the shade has a slightly blue undertone, it also has a bit of warmth in it which makes it very wearable. The shade is dark, but blends like a dream. It might look dark and intense in the pan, but it’s easy to apply light and it looks gorgeous on a fair skin.
The formula is great – finely milled matte, but with a subtle sheen to it so it doesn’t look flat or powdery when applied.

I’m in love with Émotion. It’s difficult to find a pink blush with a bit of mauve, the one that doesn’t look like “just another pink blush” when applied on the cheeks. I’ve been after a shade like this one for a long time. It’s an absolute must have!
