Chanel LA Sunrise Spring 2016 Makeup Collection – Sunkiss Ribbon Blush Review, Swatch and FOTD

January 19, 2016

The Limited Edition Chanel Sunkiss Ribbon Blush from the LA Sunrise Spring 2016 collection is definitely the item to look out for this season (available online here in Australia). It looks gorgeous in the pan, and just as equally pretty on the face. As for the other items from the collection, I have only picked up the Le Vernis Sunrise Trip, and passed the rest.

It has an ultra buttery creamy texture and is smooth to apply. In terms of pigmentation, it is one of those ‘rare’ blushes from Chanel that offers extremely intense color payoff, and it even puts a Nars blush to shame when I did a quick comparison. Each of the color strips are equally pigmented (not one color significantly more pigmented than the other), so when they are mixed together, you get an even blend of color. There is a small amount of shimmer in the blush, and once applied it translates to a cream finish with a soft glow on the skin.

What I love about this product is that it contains all sorts of colors for a blush – there is the cool fuchsia, a soft pink, an orange, a rosy pink, and a soft brown color, which makes it very fun and versatile to apply. You can mix all the colors together for a base color, and it translates to a complex peachy pink color with a coral undertone. Since each color is highly pigmented, you can also layer another single color on top just to make the color pop a little.

Tom Ford True coral – I just applied an ultra sheer coat of it and blended it until it looked like a stain. Then I added a bit of clear gloss to the center 🙂

Just checking, did you apply it heavier on purpose for the picture or it is what you normally do? It looks quite heavy on the picture and those selfie cam tend to soften the colours but yours still very obvious. But I do love the colours individually, just wondering how we can apply each colour on its own without getting the neighbouring colours on our brush 🙂

Yes I applied the blush heavier in order to show the color in the picture. Having said that it is a very vibrant blush and I have to go very light hand when applying it.

So pretty! Do you have a tute for your eye makeup? It’s very natural but pretty.
