Chanel Cream Blush in Inspiration

I may have said before that blushes are my favourite item of makeup. I've been after a cream blush for a while and Chanel's offering have been on my radar since being launched.. Plus this is my first Chanel buy - I would love a chanel handbag but it aint gonna happen so I will stick to makeup! At £27 they're by no means cheap, though the extra boots points I got cushioned the blow a little - not sure if it still works but try code XMAS2013 on a £50 spend to get 1000 extra points!There's also a few codes here that might work?

I picked up shade #64 inspiration, a blue toned pink.

At first glance in the pan, inspiration looks like a powder. Texture wise its not as creamy as other cream blushes I've used yet it still has a soft, almost satin feel to it. You can apply with a brush or fingers and it blends seamlessly. Generally, I like build it up on my cheeks as its fairly sheer. Chanel cream blushes dry to a powder finish so they're perfect for oily skin. Inspiration lasts around 10 hours on my cheeks until I notice fading. On my skintone it looks really natural and its not one of those blushes where you need to be careful with application. 
This has become a nice addition to my blush collection but I'm not sure I'd purchase anymore shades just because they're really expensive and I normally reach for powder blushes. 

Have you tried any Chanel makeup?

  5. I've always been a bit shy when it comes to cream blushes because of my oily skin but the texture and finish sounds as though it would be perf for me too try. Can't resist a little bit of luxe ;)
