Chanel Notes De Printemps – Cream Blush Intonation 69 Review, Swatches and FOTDs

January 7, 2014

I fell in love with Chanel Cream Blush since my first purchase when they were just released (see my review for Affinite and Revelation), and the Intonation 69 (LE) from Chanel Notes de Printemps Spring 2014 Makeup Collection is the third addition to my collection.  The formulation of the blush is top notch for a cream blush in the market and works great for any skin type.


Intonation is a bright rosy pink with coral undertone. It looks quite bright and red in the pan, and when it is applied on the skin sheer, it shows up more coral pink. I did a comparison against Affinite as they look similar, and as you can see from the swatch below that Intonation is warmer and more coral, which makes it flattering on any skin tone. It is very pigmented so a small dab of the product is suffice to achieve a natural finish. As with all the Chanel cream blush, Intonation applies and sets into the skin beautifully – it adheres to the skin seamlessly without settling into the pores and stays put for a minimum of 5-6 hours.

Eyes: Chanel Raffinement Eyeshadow Quad from Spring 2013

Cheeks: Chanel Cream Blush Intonation

Lips: Chanel Rouge Coco in Triomphe 60 (reviewed here)



Bottom Line: Spring makeup is all about wearing some pretty and natural flush of colors on the cheeks and lips, and this cream blush (available here or here) is a must have if you are shopping for a new blush this season.

Aww.. thank you Jade! I was wearing Tony Moly Aqua Aura Moisturizing BB cream – very cheap and works great!

I’m obsessed with blush in general, especially Chanel blush! You take beautiful photos of products and your face is flawless! Last time I tried these blushes I thought they were super pigmented, which means they’ll last a long time. Both look great on you!
