Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blushes ($43, Joues Contraste Fards à Joues Poudre in French) arrived, despite the late hour, I was able to snap some photos of Tumulte (#70). A new shade for Summer 2012, Tumulte is a pure, cool pink, one that provides a whisp of color perfect for wear now.
Chanel's unique powder blusher, a favorite for many of us, offers buildable coverage, from natural to
dramatic, and imparts a flattering radiance to the cheeks. The remarkably silky
texture ensures easy application and blending. Applied high on the
cheekbone, or near the eyes, it instantly lifts and softens the face
for a youthful look. Tumulte couldn't be more perfect for that highlighting lift.
I can't tell you the shade of Tumulte is unique. It's a gorgeous pink - one you should consider if you need a new pink blush. If you are a Chanel addict, then, of course, you will need it. I did, even though a thorough search would turn up any number of lookalikes at my house. Why look? I wanted it.
Just to prove that Tumulte's not the shade of my dreams - the subject of Please Make This Blush! - I took a photo in front of the redbud tree. Tumulte is a cool pink, but it doesn't have the lavender that make the blossoms unique. Tumulte's pink is pure, without a trace of lavender, peach, or brown.
The formula is fabulous. You can swirl the brush around on the color without flying powder - no mess in the compact and no potential fall-out on your cheeks. I can build the color easily, without any cakey effect on my cheeks. It's a 100% win.
I purchased all of my new Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blushes at Chanel's Web site. They are also available online at Nordstrom. I haven't been to a store in days, but I suspect they are arriving at all the Chanel counters. Perhaps I should go shopping!
