Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in Frivole

Chanel's Joues Contraste Blush has been available in 2 formulas: US pressed version vs rest of the world baked version. When I head off to USA for my holiday, I was excited thinking that I finally get to purchase the US pressed version. However, I made the classic mistake of being a cheapo. Considering the non tax refund policy in San Francisco, I decided to make my purchase at the airport so that I need not pay the sales tax. BIG MISTAKE....... they only have the baked version at the airport!!!! %##%*()_ Anyways...... I decided to get Frivole nonetheless as I have been thinking about it for the longest time. -_-

Frivole is a nice orangey blush which I find flattering for most ladies. It is a nice switch away from pink blushes.

The blush looks lighter in the pan but colour intensity is buildable from the swatch below.

I made the mistake of going heavy handed the first time I used it as I was 'deceived' by the colour when  I look at the pan. My suggestion is to go light and slowly build the colour intensity till desired. :)


  1. Wah!!!! What a gorgeous colour! My kind of shade my dear, I must borrow from you one day!

  2. Sorry to hear that you couldn't get the pressed version babe. Nevertheless, the color is still gorgeous and I love it!
