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!

It’s very true to the color described, as it was a very nice light gray/blue on my skin. A pastel color that did not make me look washed out. The formula was fantastic – light and airy on my skin and the shadow lasted all day without creasing or smudging. The pen applicator was so easy to use and quick too! About two swipes on each lid are all I needed. I sometimes finished blending with a brush, but it is certainly possible to still get a very polished look without it. Another bonus is it’s also water resistant, so it wears very well in hot/humid weather. I loved pairing this with a soft rose on the cheeks and lips, which worked well for daytime, and with an extra coat of mascara and a high shine gloss on top of the rose lip for an evening look. This grey will work with all skin tones as it’s not a pale pastel; the blue gives the grayness depth that will show up on very dark skin tones as well e.g. Serena Williams – Alex Wek. I would love to see them expand into even more colors for fall 2008!

This little lip color pen really does have it all -- it's a gorgeous, neutral pink with a hint of peach, milky and pigmented but very wearable. Petit Four is a pink leaning toward rose with a teensy bit of peach--no shimmer, no drama, but lovely. The texture is wonderful, it lasts amazingly long and it's pigmented, which was great when I was looking for a moisturizing lip color that I could actually see, and not just over lip liner. I can actually wear this without lip liner and it's very well defined. For those of you who may not be the biggest fans of the twist and polish lip pens (sometimes getting the exact amount of clicks to dispense the perfect amount of lip color can be a challenge), this CHANEL version the best of I've tried. This lip pen is also a real hybrid of creamy lipstick/gloss formula which was just faintly sticky, and had very comfortable wear (4+ hours) and great balance of subdued shine and full pigment. I've received several compliments since wearing this shade. This is simply a beautiful product to treat yourself to. This color will work best up to a Queen Latifiah shade.

New for fall 2006, Red Dream is a sparkly medium red that is blue based and works well with a yellow or yellow/orange undertone. The shimmer itself comes from what seems to be actual glitter, but not very gritty. What I really love is that it's not an overly bright red and it doesn't scream "here come my lips!"; it can easily be worn in daytime. It has good staying power. Note: Once it has worn off, you will have a faint layer micro glitter on your lips which is not unflattering, but should be pointed out. This is a great, easy-to-wear red that doesn't turn brown, pink or orange. This will be at the top of my makeup bag for a red! Everyday I've worn it I feel like my face just comes "alive". It's simply a beautiful, amazing colour!

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
