Happy Days Are Here Again!!! My Nordstrom’s order finally arrived today and I only ordered the Chanel Fleur de Lotus JC Blush. I had very high expectations for this blush as it was described so eloquently by other reviewers. Nordstrom.com describes it as:
“A vibrant new shade of the classic Chanel blush enhances the cheekbones with joyful color. The unique formula offers buildable coverage, from natural to dramatic, for a flattering, youthful glow.”
Now I find that it does offer a youthful glow and a sheen but it is just sooo sheer on my dark skin as you will see below in the swatches in various lights. The color is shockingly , stunningly, coral in the compact when you open it, and makes your eyes widen, your heart flutter and a gasp ‘ohhh my god.’ You are saying this because you get the strong rose smell or because the colors stuns you.
I had to build it and build it almost four times. I love the final color that I had to build up to achieve. I would say the same for the Fall 2012 Rose Initale which is powdery. As for Fleur de Lotus it is a very soft powdery soft blush as I am not accustomed to in the baked editions as the US versions are always finely milled powder-I have a Europe Edition of Pink Explosion and I find it to be not as soft as this baked formula.. Perhaps they changed the recipe a bit.
As always with Chanel, they never disappoint in their classically sharp well dressed packaging which always is the best in show! I rate this 3 out of 5 stars. I rated it for the sheerness factor but all other factors were on point.
