Chanel Rose Initial #72 and Rose Pétale #99 Joues Contraste Blush

Chanel Rose Initial Rose Petale Joues Contraste Blush

Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in Rose Initial #72 is a bright, warm, medium pink with yellow undertones. On me the shade looks similar to MAC Dainty Mineralize Blush, but the finish of Rose Initial is more subtle. It has Chanel’s signature micro glitter, just about the right amount not to be over the top but to lift the shade so it doesn’t look flat on the skin.

Illamasqua Nail Polish in Throb

Illamasqua nail polish Throb

Illamasqua Throb is my all time favourite red cream. It’s described as a “blood red” by Illamasqua, and although it’s a slightly darker red I wouldn’t say it’s a “blood red” dark. Under natural light it’s a bright, slightly muted cool toned red.
