I am very pleased with Chanel's Rose Initiale. It is part of their Fall 2012 collection and it is a very lively pink for the fall/autumn season. Nevertheless, I really like the brightness it brings to my face and the light pink color it gives to my cheeks. As I mentioned before, Fleur de Lotus was the other blush I was about to get. Fleur de Lotus is an Asian exclusive and is brought to Nordstrom as a special sale. I decided to pass that up after having both on my face and seeing how nice Rose Initiale looked on me. I would definitely purchase more Chanel Joues Contraste powder blushes in the future after using this one!
Application: It comes with a brush, which I found easy to use. It looks very natural on my cheeks with one application.
Texture: The powder is very fine-milled and soft.
Scent: It has a faint rose fragrance, which I love!
Staying power: It lasted on my cheeks for about 8 hours.
Overall: I really enjoy this blush. It is so soft and natural. It brightens my face and gives it a pop of pink! I also love the rose fragrance as I apply it, though it does fade after a while. I would definitely try more Chanel JC blushes in the future!
