CHANEL IRRÉELE BLUSH Silky Cheek Color in Mystery

CHANEL IRRÉELE BLUSH Silky Cheek Color in Mystery

I’m very familiar with the CHANEL family of fragrances, but unbelievably, until now, I had never tried any of the cosmetics – I had always admired them from afar – the classy packaging and beautiful counter displays…Well, better late than never! I tried the Irreelle blush in Mystery, and it went on like a perfect sun kissed bronze. Mystery is such a beautiful complex color, it's almost like a custom blend of blush and bronzer- bronze with a tinge of red. This blush is beautiful in the package -- rosy, pinky, bronzy and glittery. This could very well be THE nicest blush I've every used. The texture and feel of the blush on my skin was like the finest silk. Mystery is a rosy bronze color on my skin (I get a bit more brown than pink) and absolutely gorgeous! It goes on light and is easily buildable while the color stays natural looking. Just gorgeous! It is not glittery on the cheek. This will work best up to about a Kerry Washington complexion. If you are darker, it will make a nice highlighter on the top of the cheekbones. I felt this was great for me when I wanted definition without a lot of pink or red color. Plus it's just so beautiful in its container! I have officially succumbed to the world of Chanel Beaute!

Some more worthy of mention than others- and this powder blush, housed in the cap LID of Clinique Quick Blush is one of them. This was so perfect for all the on the go moments on my life. The blush and brush are inside of a chubby silver cylinder. I just twisted the cyliner to allow the brush to reach the powder blush inside the cap on the other end. The color, Pronto Pink, is a medium rose pink (cool) with light shimmer. It gave me a beautiful healthy flush. The staying power was good, and I generally added a little in the evening if I was going out for a little more pop. This is a very pretty, uncomplicated pink that many women can wear, and would work best up to a Kerry Washington shade. The brush itself is very soft but firm, and deposited the perfect amount on color on the brush - amazing! The Quick Blush tube is the perfect size and very lightweight. The pretty shade and wonderful application method make this one of my favorite new items for the spring, and will be perfect for summer get-aways!

Many cosmetic lines are featuring more and more beautiful works of art within the actual makeup palette, and this one is truly a stand out creation. This is part of the Lancôme Maharani Jewels Collection 2008. The image etched into the powder is a beautiful elephant, as an ode to India’s culture. The brilliance is that each of the 3 colors in the actual elephant is a beautiful shade that is part of the bronzer. There’s a light pink, deep shimmery gold and deep reddish/orange. The elephant itself is actually “raised” a bit for a nice 3 dimensional effect. The outer compact is a nice Tortoiseshell-brown which works nicely with the theme for this collection. I used my bronzer brush to swirl all the colors together and just loved the flattering, healthy glow effect it gave me (swatch above gives an idea of what it looks like together). This bronzer had just the right amount of shimmer, the color had very good staying power and best of all, this will work with all skin tones since the three shades work to pick up and enhance all undertones. For those women who have very dark brown complexions, this can serve as a very nice highlighter on brow bones and cheek bones used in conjunction with your blush. This just made me smile every time I wore it. Truly a treasure and will also be a collectors item for sure.

This cute little blue sponge is a jack of all trades. The sponge is firm upon taking it out of the clear plastic case, so the first thing I did was to the sponge and run it under water, getting it completely wet. It doubled in size and then had soft, pillow-like appearance. Next, I squeezed the sponge out very well so that it was slightly damp. Then I swiped it across my cream foundation and dabbed it first in the mid section of my face near my nose, sweeping it outward towards the edges of my face (cheek, forehead, and chin). Within a minute or two the foundation was dry and the coverage was fantastic. With the sponge I was able to get to all the corners of my eyes and nose. The top of the sponge is narrower and perfect for dabbing around the corners of the nose, or on blemishes, while the bottom, wider part is what I used to actually apply my foundation on the majority of my face. With the sponge, my foundation looked natural, yet had a very nice med/sheer coverage with a tad bit of a dewy appearance. For my concealer, I dabbed a bit directly under my eye with my concealer brush and then used the top narrow part of the sponge to tap into my skin until it blended seamlessly. With cream blush, I found the best way to use it was by tapping the bottom half lightly on the blush and then applying in a circular motion on my cheeks. Beautiful! This is a great little makeup tool that I’ll always have in my kit. Note: Here is a rinsing tip. Try rinsing the sponge after use by letting as much of the makeup wash off as possible with plain water. Then apply a small dab of a simple gel cleanser to clean any remaining makeup from the sponge. It doesn’t come with a storage case, per say, but you can try setting it atop the actual clear case that the sponge comes in to dry.

This is Bobbi’s basic black square palette, with two layers of products (Lip colors on top, and the shimmer brick underneath it) and a mirror. There are two each of the Lip Glosses and Lip Sheers. "Pink Mocha" Lip Gloss goes with "Buff" Lip Sheer. They are both beige-y nudes but with different texture and intensity. "Rum" Lip Gloss goes with "Rosy" Lip Sheer. Both areYLLB (Your lips but better) reds. All the colors coordinate, so that you can also layer them as well. The "Tawny" Shimmer Brick has a nice texture. If you blend properly the result is more of a glow than a shimmer. Tawny itself is this unique rose/pink/peach/bronze color that would goes with many eye shadow colors. Its got every color in there! This will work with many skin tones, up to about an Iman complexion, and is especially for those of you with the warmer undertones (yellow/orange/red). I just loved how it brightened up my face and gave me a lovely sun kissed glow! It’s easy to carry around so it’s great for travel/work/purse. This palette is also perfect for those of you who want to try out some of these new Bobby Brown colors. My only wish it that it also came with applicator brushes.

  • My favorite bronzer EVER. No matter how pale you feel this bronzer makes you feel better without looking trashy.

I was as pleased as I thought I would be. This was the perfect product to use in the morning when I needed to get out of the door quickly or on the weekends when I just needed a basic look. I used this on my eyes, cheeks and lips and find it excellent for all three. The texture is a little dry (so if you have very dry skin a moisturizing primer is essential!) but I that's why it's so long-lasting. I applied it with my fingers, blended well and created a nice stain on my lips, and a nice flattering color on my eyes and cheeks. With this and a little liner, mascara and powder and I was ready in five minutes! This shade is a dusty, pinky peach, the perfect shade for me! This shade has enough red to give a me fresh looking cheeks, but also enough orange/pink tones to really warm it up in a sophisticated way. I just looked really healthy and glowy when I wore it. Also it seemed to bring out my eyes dramatically. It’s incredibly flattering and also very versatile. It has a great stay-put texture without being drying or cakey – my color didn’t fade at all during the day. This particular shade will work very well up to a Beyonce complexion.

The Noire Palette is a lovely palette for a “cool face”, featuring periwinkle blue shadow, pearly pink lavender eye shadow and a cool pink blush. The palette itself has a lovely, unusual design of silver and white flowers and vines with a black background. The black felt on the white and silver is a nice touch The magnetized palette opens up to 3 eye shadows and one blush. No mirror included in the palette. The pans can be taken out and exchanged for the individual Stila eye shadow and blush pans. The top left eye shadow in the Noire Palette is a light pearly pink. I found this to be beautiful for highlighting. The top right eye shadow is a periwinkle blue, which I tended to blend with the bottom left eye shadow which is a sparkly black that was excellent for a smoky eye look. The blush in the bottom right spot is a bright pink. When I used the periwinkle I tended to layer this one more heavily as it is not as pigmented as the others. It read a little more blue/grey on my skin and was very pretty. I tended to use the glittery black quite a bit as both an eye shadow and it also made a nice, soft charcoal liner for a daytime appropriate but smoky look. The blush is actually the winner of the palette. It’s a bright but deep pink color. It looks a little bright in the pan but goes on really sheer, natural and flattering. It just looked like pretty flushed pink cheeks which really complimented my skin tone and not bright pink obvious blush. Because the blush is very pigmented I used it with a light hand. The cost is also a great deal as opposed to buying eye shadow and blush pans plus palette or compact costs. This palette will work best up to an Iman complexion.

From the beautiful embellished flowers on a light luminescent pale pink background, to the shimmery gold case, this was a joy to look at and to use. I loved using is as an accent to my peach or coral toned blushes. The “pollen” center of the flower is a glittery hot pink (which actually goes on quite soft and complemented my skin tone nicely). I loved applying it on my cheek bones, and under the brow. When I wanted to use it as more of an actual cheek color, I swirled the pale and hot pink together with the soft brown to get a very flattering medium pink with subtle shimmer. This is very pretty for spring and will work as a shimmer accent for all skin tones, and has enough pigment to work as an actual blush up to about a Nia Long complexion.

I really loved this product (my first time using a liquid blush). This color appears bright pink (almost neon) in the tube, but it blended beautifully on my skin to a subtle rosy pink. This was just perfect for an everyday look, and gave me an incredible glow. The texture is simply divine. It only took a few small pumps of the liquid on each cheek and my fingers (or a small brush) to blend in and achieve a perfect look every time. This blush was very easy to blend onto my skin. The result was really polished and subtle. I also love that it gave me you a true glow, without being shimmery or looking greasy or shiny. The lasting power is also amazing. I was very surprised that this did not wear off quickly, since it is a liquid. This blush lasts as long if not longer than some of my favorite powder blushes! The product is also versatile. I also mixed a few drops with my liquid foundation and even my tinted moisturizer which gave me an incredible look as well. Using it this way gave my complexion a boost and made me look radiant overall (I choose to do this in the evening especially). Since it’s so pigmented and not much is needed to achieve a look, this will also last a very long time, which is another bonus! This is limited edition (spring 2008)…run don’t walk to get this one girls!” Note: If you have very oily skin, this should be used sparingly.

I think this may be one of the prettiest shades in the whole Fafi collection as a matter of fact. Hipness gave me a natural, coral/peachy-pink glow (no shimmer) on me. It's very pigmented, so all I needed was a light swipe of the blush (with my mac 129 brush) to give me a beautiful glow. This is truly a beautiful blush with a nice, silky texture, making it very blendable. Although it is listed as a frost, I didn’t see any shimmer on my skin (but it does appear there is a small amount in the pan). What I loved about this shade is that it really brightened up my face without calling attention to the fact that I was wearing blush. This will work best up to an Oprah shade. Since this is limited edition, you may want to double up on this one!

If you are looking for a product to look great with no effort (that’s also great for your skin), then the new Triple Accent pencil is just what you need! This pencil has a side especially for lips & cheeks and another one for the eyes. I found that the lips side was super creamy, moisturizing and easy to blend – more adaptable than most multiples that I’ve tried. The staying power of the color on both my lips and cheeks was phenomenal! I would apply on the weekends in the early morning and late at night the color was still there, looking fresh and vibrant! The Heather side for lips and cheeks is a very flattering reddish-wine shade, great for fall but certainly adaptable year round. The Taupe eye side was also impressive! The pretty silvery based-taupe with shimmer (not sparkle) made a good base for powder shadow when I had a little extra time, or more often than not, by itself, it's a silvery taupe. This side can also be used as a highlighter on the cheekbones, which is how I applied it for evenings out occasionally. I also loved the convenience of throwing this in my purse and having one product for every touch ups if I needed it! This is also a must have for travel to help keep the cosmetic bag light. This is one of the darkest colors in all the pencils, and will work very well up to a Venus Williams shade. Editor’s Note: This product is made with FSC-certified wood and rich plant ingredients. It combines plant emollients and a blend of organically grown berry anti-oxidants.

It has the best of both worlds -- like a cream, it was easy to blend and doesn’t stain your fingertips. Like a gel, it lasted all day without fading. The color on me is a natural flushy color. This is a rosy watermelon pinkish shade (no shimmers) with a runny liquidy texture. It does have a sweet scent, but it's rather nice and not cloying. It blended like a dream on my cheeks so it looked like I had a lovely "flush" that came from within. It’s a luxury purchase but a little is all it takes to get the effect and it is SO long lasting. After a 9+ hour work day (sometimes even with air travel!) my cheek makeup still looked as fresh as if I had just applied it. This is my new little addiction! Note: Please remember to give the tube a little shake first before you squeeze it, as this does have a tendency release clear liquid first if you don’t.

OK girls --for those of you who love cute makeup packaging and also expect a quality product, Hard Candy has created the ultimate kit! I LOVE this kit and by the end of my review period, I could not pry this out of my bag! (Yes, I especially loved the adorable Chinese take out package!!!) This is super small – (1"in x 3.5"in x 2” in) and light weight to carry with me for touch ups. Now on to the actual kit contents… This very cute multi-level (3 levels) makeup palette contains 8 tiny eye shadows in various colors (Note: they are on the sparkly side), 2 concealers, a blush, a bronzer, 6 lip glosses, tiny black eyeliner and black mascara. Most of the eye shadows are very workable and flattering shades and the lip glosses are cute with many browns, reds and pink which are on the sheer/medium finish side. I found that my favorite product in this case was a total surprise -- the concealers...yes, the concealers. The coverage was fantastic and the color match was very good as well. This kit really contains everything you need to create a full face! The products also smell yummy, like sugar, the blush is a nice color, and the bronzer is also very flattering with good wear. The mascara is GREAT as well and I would use it solo. The palette itself has a cute mirror, and while the applicators are fine for on the go application, overall I found better results using my professional brushes applying it at home

The Water powder duo comes in a pot form and upon viewing, it looks like a light pink that is slightly frosted, and a hot pink color with very purple undertones. I am more of a powder bronzer kind of girl so I didn’t think that I would like this combination, but since it's summer, I thought that pink might be a nice change of pace...boy was I right! The pinks mix so nicely together, and instead of a Afrost@ the lighter pink just brings a nice bit of shimmer (perfect for day too!) to the darker pink. The great thing is that because the product is milled so fine, the product can go on very sheer, or you can layer for a much more intense color. It made me look so happy and glowing! The product also had very good staying power. I only reapplied a little before going out at night. This is a great addition to my makeup collection

I am admittedly a sucker for Chanel cosmetics, but I have mostly used the lip products, so when I had the opportunity to try one of their Irreelle blushes I was ecstatic! This is exactly what I would have thought a Chanel blush would be- a pinky-red blush with a bit of shimmer that will actually work with many different skin tones. On my skin it looked like a healthy flush of color -- a lovely “lit from within” effect. This is a pink, but it is amazing. Not a true pink -- almost a purply pink. But don’t worry! It is gorgeous and the shimmer is very subtle and flattering and adds a nice bit of dimension to the product. It looks great with all types of eye looks (dark smoky, grey smoky I even tried it with a dramatic navy smoky eye at night and it was amazing! The staying power is fantastic as well. This is a little gem of a product. This will work best up to about a Gabrielle Union shade. A luxury that is worth every penny! P.S. This also an amazing shower gift for your beauty loving girlfriends! I recently provided several of these for my good friend’s wedding shower and you should have seen how they swooned
