Today I have something really exciting to show you – it is the Les Tendres De Chanel in Les Roses. As far as I know, it is limited edition and is only exclusive to Hong Kong for now. It really has got my pulse racing when I first saw it at the counter – a highlighter and a beautiful pink blush combined into one product by Chanel is just a dream product for me!
A close-up shot, it has the same 4 band design as the Soleil Tan de Chanel 4 Facettes Bronzers (from Chanel Spring 2011 collection). The only difference is the brush is made of soft white goat hair instead of black.
- the top 2 shades being the face highlighters
- the bottom 2 shades being the blushes
- all colors mixed together is swatched on the far right
This is how it looks on me – I applied with all the colors mixed together on my cheeks, and then applied the white shade across my cheekbones as highlighter. The texture is soft and pigmented enough to show up as a visible highlighter or blush with one swipe with the brush.
When applied swirled together, it delivers a beautiful soft pink glow to my face with luminosity and dimension. I was a little wary of the white shade to be mixed in or used as a highlighter at the start, as it looked quite frosty when swatched on my arm. I was wrong, the effect is soft and glowy against my skin tone when applied light handed, without making my face look shiny or frosty.
I have quite an extensive collection of blushes, this one definitely tops my favorite. I can’t remember how much exactly it was in Hong Kong Dollars, think it was roughly around AUD$55, almost half the price of how much it would be in Australia!
