Cheek Shade in Bliss ($38) is housed in a portable and refillable "pebble." Made with micro-particles that contribute to the featherweight texture, Cheek Shades create a subtly convincing blush of color. Enriched with anti-aging vitamins A, C, and E, the color adheres beautifully to the skin and blends so well it leaves no perceptible surface.
Of course, I ordered it - even knowing that it would likely be very light and sheer. Light pink and sheer work on my skin. I was also taken by the embossed rose, knowing it would "fade" (flatten) with use.
Bliss is available now at Chantecaille's Web site, where I purchased mine. You'll find it in August (no later than September) at Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Frédéric Fekkai Salons, Neiman Marcus, Space NK, select Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom locations. Neiman Marcus tells me it has already shipped to them, and they hope to have it this week.
