Review: Chanel Blush Horizon De Chanel.









This is definitely the most expensive blusher I own! I wouldn't have looked twice at this and the price tag except I had something to take back to Boots that I didn't have the receipt for, so I had to choose something then and there and this was the only thing I wanted.

It's made with the horizon in mind, the colours of the sun setting from dawn til dusk. I absolutely adore the varying shades of pink and the soft sheen of the highlighter. It took me a while to pluck up the courage to use this as it's so beautiful and I know I'll never have another one, but it's too beautiful not to use!

As you would expect with a Chanel product, the quality is incredible. The shades really come together to create a wonderful pop of pink with the most brilliant sheen. It applies so well and blends to create such a beautiful flush. I think it looks lovely against my fair skin and dark hair, especially when I pair it with pink lips.

Chanel say  "To create a soft fresh look, gently sweep across all of the blush shades as a harmony and sculpt the face using the beveled brush. For a healthy glow add just a touch of the pink shade to your cheekbones and temples. Create a sun-kissed glowing complexion with the peach shades." 
Personally, I just swirl the shades together but i might try using the different shades as I like the sound of the more peachier colours on their own.

Obviously the price is a slight issue, but this is a gorgeous product that I feel lucky to have. I'm unsure if I would really part with £46 for it as that seems very steep, even for this beauty. 
However, I have spied Horizon De Chanel in the up and coming co-buys on Buyapowa so watch this space!
What do you think of this product? Would you fork out £46 for it?

NOTE: You can also see this blush in this post.

  9. I too have some Boots credit to use up and am seriously contemplating this blush, but worry it is a bit similar to stuff I already have :( It looks absolutely stunning on you though, so maybe I will risk it! xo

  16. I never feel guilty about buying Chanel products, and when I have some extra money it's always what I go for. Quality over quantity in my opinion.

    This looks lovely and adds a really nice natural glow to your cheeks. I hope I can pick it up soon!

  17. Before I started using their foundation, I never thought I'd spend the money for Chanel makeup. However, the foundation is so fantastic I'm now looking into investing in the pressed powder and the primer. I think I would be tempted by this, then, if I were not completely dedicated to Benefit's Sugarbomb!

  19. What's the brush like? I know some brushes that come with blushes can end up being a bit crap, but as it's Chanel I'm hoping that this one was up to par?

  21. You get what you pay for - I bet it lasts for ages! A lot of money, yes indeed but if it lasts longer than other products then you get your money back. It's beautiful on you xx

  27. thanks for the review. this color looks absolutely stunning on you, and you are right, the quality of the product is beautiful. i cannot judge the quality of its application since i do not own it myself, but i trust you. i am just so impressed with the packaging and design - even the way the horizontal lines of the powder sit in the pan. great product :)

  30. Eeeek the thought of £46 for a blusher just made my eyes water! That said, it looks beautiful in the pan and looks perfect on your cheeks...just not sure that near on £50 is something I'd be willing to part with! x
