Chanel Tweed Blush

In the not-too-distant past, Chanel made a blush with a quilted pattern, called Irreelle. These were much less popular than the circular, domed Joues Contraste (because the Irreelles were less pigmented, and tended to harden over time, I’ve heard). So Chanel discontinued the Irreelles and released a new nod to their sartorial history: the Tweed Blush (Les Tissages de Chanel, or Blush Duo Tweed Effect).

Given how bright these look in the pan, I thought they went on surprisingly demurely. I definitely built up the color to best show the differences between the four shades; one swipe of Tweed Pink is actually quite ladylike (though the cool pink powder does contain some microscopic sparkles). Tweed Rose is the subtlest, and it appeared to be sparkle-free. Tweed Ambre was the most pigmented.

Tweed blushes are $45 (Coco, say it ain’t so), and they are permanent. The tweed pattern and color variation affect the top layer only, though as you work your way down through the powder, you’ll find the two halves of the pan are two different shades (hence Blush DUO Tweed Effect).

    >I forgot how much I want Coral, but I just don’t think I can stomach $45 for blush…yikes.

    >Love Mocha. I wonder if Tweed Rose is very similar. These are worth $45, if you can find your perfect shade.

    >It's so hard for me to resist a blush & these are so beautiful; but I can't justify the $45 price. Yet. :(

    I haven’t bought one (oh, price point), but Tweed Corail would be my choice.
