Let me begin by stating that I am a self proclaimed blush obsessive... Do not ask me how many I own, I could not tell you. However, I actually only own powders and considering I love to test things... That had to change!
Powder blushers are extremely easy to work with. They typically apply hassle free and blend seamlessly, making them the perfect every-day beauty essential. If like I, you wear foundation on a daily basis, blush is a must have for adding colour to the cheeks. I remember going all through college, only wearing foundation! Now when I look back, I realise how washed out I looked... Oh dear!
The reason I never really venture out of my "powder comfort zone" is largely down to the thought, somewhere planted in my noggin, that cream products will ALWAYS clog the pores. This is obviously incorrect. You may find some that do but the majority work perfectly well. Until now, I had longed to find that holy grail cream blusher...
A month or two ago, I was browsing online, as I always do and came across the Chanel cream blushes. I didn't even give it a second thought, I had to have one!
I am in LOVE with Chanel and have been for such a long time so when it comes to trying new products that I may be slightly afraid of, I always turn to my favourite brand. Although Chanel beauty is priced much higher than the standard, these are luxury products which always surpass my expectations... I highly recommend giving it a go. If you are a first time buyer, the Chanel Stylo Yeux liner is a must have... It's phenomenal and will stay put all day!
I love bright pink blushers for my skin tone. Especially with some slight, and I mean very slight, shimmer which beautifully catches the light. I decided to choose Affinite  and I am so glad I did. The colour is perfect!
Why am I in love you ask?
- The colour is vibrant and swatches true to the shade you see in the pan
- Although cream, the consistency is butter soft and blends like a powder
- The texture is non greasy
- My blush lasts all day
- It leaves me with a nice flush of colour and a healthy glow
Overall, this blush scores top marks with me... I can't wait to get my hands on some more shades and share them with you. Before I forget, I almost didn't mention that you only need a slight dab of a brush (or finger) as this product is highly pigmented, therefore giving you more bang for your buck... As they say!
