Dallas is having the rainiest fall I can remember, but that does present a good opportunity to catch up on a few essential permanent-collection items before we dive back into the seasonal goodies.
I think powder blush is one of the products Chantecaille does best. I sometimes have to remind myself that Chantecaille is an American brand (with a French name) — because their blushes convey what I think of as a Japanese makeup aesthetic. Namely: flawless skin, luminous, radiant, a glow from within. These blushes are subtle — a different style from NARS or Rock & Republic.
Chantecaille’s powder blushes are $28, the same size as their eyeshadows (so the two can share a palette). I swatched Chantecaille’s Aquablushes (creme blush in stick-form) a while back. I should probably re-swatch those one of these days.
Wind is peach-pink, and is a gorgeous, subtle blush. When I wear it, it just seems to make the rest of my makeup look better. Thrill is reddish; Emotion is pink; Mood is mauvey. If I had to pick just one favorite from Chantecaille’s powder blushes, it would be peachy Winter Bloom. It definitely brightens my face.
