I was pinching my pennies to get this new Chanel Tweed blush when I unexpectedly received it as a birthday gift. Thanks Jojoba! 🙂 Needless to say, I was over the moon! I received it in Tweed Corail which is French for Coral and if you wondering, no, it is not scary coral on.
In fact, this blush is my perfect everyday to-go blush and I have been using it every day since I got it! That’s how versatile and wonderful it is to me.
The reason it is called a Tweed Duo blush is because the colours are laid out in a tweed pattern similar to the iconic Chanel tweed material used for their jackets and suits. The Tweed blush is marketed as a blush-highlighter product. Do not ask me what that means. For me, this is a straight blush. I reckon the highlighting part indicates that the blush gives you a bit of a glow.
Tweed Corail is one of the new Tweed Duo blushes by Chanel. It comes in a compact the same size as the Chanel Joues Contraste blushes (the round domed ones) together with the signature velvet pouch, but the blush itself is oblong. It comes with a brush which feels softer than the other packaged brushes I have tested but I don’t usually use the brush unless I have no other blush brush on hand. The only problem I have with the packaging is that it looks identical to the other Chanel blushes so I can’t tell which is which!
The blush itself has an unfinished look to its surface as I first observed. Squint and you might just see some numbers or letters pop up at you from the bumpy surface. Doesn’t it remind you of those 3D poster things that you squint at until a picture pops into place? I’ve had endless moments of fun picking out 4D numbers for the lotto LOL… (I’m kidding about the lotto 😛 )Continue Reading
