Cheek Crème ($34). Each of the three flattering shades (Shy, Demure, and Coy) contains unique "siliconic elasomers" in emollient oils with luminous results. The compact’s mirror guarantees effortless application on-the-go, making it this summer’s beach bag essential if you're headed out of town. For me, two of these shades will be parked firmly on my bathroom counter.
When I first saw the "portrait" of these beautiful cream blushes, I knew I needed the two pink shades. I wasn't sure about the warm, peachy shade, but my curiosity ruled. I ordered all three.
I swatched them extremely heavily using a sponge-tipped applicator - an application method one would never use "in real life." I wanted to show you the color differences and decided that was the best way to do it. All swatch photos show Demure at the top of my arm, Coy in the middle, and Shy at the bottom.
Coy is rose, but I think it leans coral. Does that make sense? Let's call it a warm rose. Shy is the pink at the bottom of my arm. How good does it get? If I were going to choose a shade - only one - for my fair, cool-toned complexion, Shy would be the it shade. It's a gorgeous pink.
These velvety, soft, and easily blendable colors definitely melt into the skin for a pretty anytime glow - fresh and natural. The white lily bulb and peach extracts in the formula will shield our delicate faces from free radicals. Chantecaille always puts beneficial ingredients into its color, offering "the whole package" with each luxurious new product.
