Blush of the Day – Les Tissages De Chanel in Tweed Pink

Chanel Tweed Jacket is one of the most coveted items for me..I hope one day I can cross this item off my ultimate wishlist..one day… For now I am happy with Les Tissages De Chanel in Tweed Pink. It looked so beautiful when it was brand new, a two toned pink in the signature Chanel tweed pattern covered in an overspray of gold shimmers. Sadly the gold shimmer will disappear once it is used.

It contains 2 shades of pink – a light pink and  a bubblegum pink, and it translates into a soft neutral pink with a hint of shimmer onto my skin. The pigmentation is quite sheer, typical of Chanel, but can be built up to full color.  I tend to reach for this blush when I just want a natural flush of pink with a soft glow on my cheeks – one of those fool proof blushes that is office appropriate.

This blush blends in to the skin beautifully. I am normally only half awake in the morning when I do my makeup. With this blush I can apply it with my eyes closed and it would look like I spent a lot time blending it.

That blush looks stunning on you, and in the pan also. I only own a Chanel blush in a travel palette and wasn’t impressed, but this looks gorgeous so I may look into them!

Thanks emma 🙂 Yeh I am not so crazy about travel palettes as I find the quality of the products is not on par with their original products…I regretted buying a set of Mac travel brushes once!

Such a gorgeous blush <3 I've yet to try Chanel blushes, my current fave get up and go blush is Sleek Pixie Pink (it's a really cute bright pink) 🙂

It looked very nice on you!

I have the Tweed Blush in Coral but I don’t really fancy it as it hardly showed up on me. I had to apply and layered a lot!

I was at Chanel another day & SA told me that the tweed blushers are more sheer and could be used as highlighters..

My easy to go blush would be Tokidoki Belina Blush in Skate girl or Nars Super 0rgasm. I can apply without checking out the mirror.. Ha!

Highlighters..good idea. I think they would also look nice if you layer it on top of a dark blush to create some dimension.
I don’t have Nars Super 0rgasm..I thought it’s quite glittery..okay I have to check it out again since it’s your recommendation 🙂

OT but I bought the Chanel Rose Platine eyeliner based off your swatches. And it is just gorgeous! I can only hope that someone comes out with a dupe soon because it’s such a fantastic shade.

Hi Audrey, there are a lot of two toned pink blushes on the market. I’m sure there is a dupe out there. I might do a pink blushes comparison post one day 🙂

Tweed Pink and Espiegle Blush are both my fool proof blush. Thinking of getting Tweed Coral now too.

Reika June 27, 2011 at 1:12 pm

I don’t have Espiegle yet..will keep that in mind 🙂
I have heard Tweed Coral hardly shows up though…

I like what you’re wearing on your eyes. What shades are they?

Reika July 17, 2011 at 7:24 am

Oups sorry Claire. I can’t remember what shades I used as that was such a long time ago..

This blush and MAC Mineralized blush in Dainty are my go-to blushers! I love these two and for some reason I seem to hit the pan on both at the same time!

Great glad to know! We definitely have similar taste in makeup 😉

I just bought Tweed Pink. Is the chunky glitter layer an overspray or does it have more glitters inside?

I think the glitters are making me itch. 🙁

Don’t worry it’s an overspray!
