Tester: Hispanic (Mexican) about Eva Medes' complexion with combination skin and good skin tone.
"Ah, yet another luxury in life that can only be provided by CHANEL!
This blush has quickly become a "must have" makeup product for me every day. It is truly a makeup lovers dream.
First, it has a fresh rose petal scent which wafted in the air as I swept the finely milled, silky blush across my cheeks. The fragrance was not cloying or too strong, and lasted faintly on my skin for a few minutes (although on more oily skins this scent will last longer, but it's so pleasant you won't mind at all).
The shade itself it also the perfect color to compliment not only many skin tones but fit many different makeup looks. It's a neutral medium pink with slight golden iridescent sheen, which is one of the most unique I've ever seen. It's very pigmented and finely milled, but goes on a lot sheerer than the shade in the compact. On my cheeks, Rose Bronze was slightly more bronzey than rosy pink, and gave me the perfect amount of shimmer that was perfect for day or night. What I really loved about the shade itself it was how it always managed to make me look natural and healthy, even when I applied more for a stronger effect.
The packaging is also lovely -- the blush is housed in a traditional black CHANEL compact and includes a big mirror (and a tiny brush). For daily use I used a much larger, fluffy blush brush to apply, but the tiny one worked for quick touch ups and travel just fine.
Another benefit of treating yourself to this luxury is that it really does last a long time because of the high quality and pigment density. It's an all around winner!" T.A.
Editor's Note: This will work best up to a Kerry Washington shade.
