Sometimes, you think “Oh, not another limited edition pretty blush!” as yet another limited edition pretty blush hits the counters. I tend to be a little dismissive these days of pretty looking makeup because experience has taught me that sometimes, they’re just a pretty face – pretty to look at, not so pretty to use.
And then you come across one that is not only pretty to look at, but quite quite lovely on skin. And then you go “Oh darn! I’m going to have to rave about this one!”
Enter the pretty blush du jour, the Chanel Sunkiss Ribbon Blush Harmony. A blush so pretty to look at, it comes tied up in its own ribbons.
Forming a part of the Spring 2016 LA Sunrise Chanel makeup collection, I was a little taken aback when I first saw press images. Doesn’t this look like something the brand might put out for Summer? Those corals and beiges sure look summery to me!
The design is that of interlaced ribbons, in 5 different shades. While pretty in pictures, when the blush landed on my desk, I was quite blown away by the intricacy in detail. It really did look like ribbons! All the way down to the texture of a satin ribbon, with the subtle Chanel name embossed, the way they are on actual Chanel ribbons. If you’ve ever had anything gift wrapped at the Chanel counter, or bought anything from the boutiques, you will know what I mean. They’re beautiful ribbons, and now, everyone can have them in this blush!
But is it just another pretty blush?
