With my first pay check EVER, I purchased myself a Chanel Blush...well, actually my mom paid for $20 of it, but I paid for the rest. (Her $20 was kind of a "good job" gift for getting 100% on each of my college midterms.) Anyway, I knew I wanted to try a Chanel Blush, and I finally wouldn't feel so guilty about coughing out a ridiculous $43 for a single blush, so I hopped in my car and drove myself to the Valley River Center. I had my eyebrows threaded while I was there, too. I have to say, I wasn't a huge fan. It was painful. That's the only thing I've ever done to my eyebrows. Ever. No waxing. No tweezing. Nothing.
I have to say, for being the most "tame" or "every day" blush at the counter, this still packs quite a bit of punch. I removed the flimsy little brush from the container so it wouldn't fall out all of the time. Just a warning...this blush has a very heavy rose scent so if perfumes bother you or those that you frequently come into contact with, I'd stray away.
Some close-ish dupes that you may have (close enough to save you $43 for something else, anyway!) are:
- NARS "Deep Throat"
- MAC "Dainty" mineralized blush
- Benefit "Bella Bamba"
As much as I like this blush, I detest the packaging. I imagined that for $43 that it wouldn't be so cheap and plasticy. I think that this product would be very prone to shattering if it were to ever be dropped, so cherish it and be careful!
