Flushed: Chanel Joues de Contraste (Rose Ecrin)

You guys know that the Chanel Autumn 2011 Blush in Rose Ecrin was an initial pass for me. So I never had any intention of it making its way into my home. Well, a good friend decided that I might like it, and bought one extra (she’d purchased one for herself). So, it ended up in my home anyway:

It’s a very light rose color… I was quite convinced that it would not show up on my medium skin tone. But I found that with a heavier hand, it actually shows up quite nicely.

Swatches aside, this is still not a blush I’d rush out to buy for myself. I think it suits fair skin tones much better. But it does add a bit of light to my face, which I like.

FOTD: Summer Greens

I didn’t really have a plan… I just wanted something fresh and green(ish):
