The Chanel Week : Joues Contraste in Pink Explosion

There was an explosion of shrieks and shouts in the Chanel boutique that day!! We were all so happy and excited to see this blush!! LOL....Its an Explosion of Pink..they have reserved it for someone but I convinced the lovely SAs to sell me one of the pieces. Its just that perfect bright pink that I wanted and I got it.

Pink Explosion really explodes into a scintillating cloud of glitter and color on the face and you cannot escape it. Looking for that perfect gorgeous medium bright pink blush??? Your search ends here. So lets have a looksie....

CHANEL says..........

The touch of colour and radiance. 
Offers effects from very natural to very sophisticated. Used as a simple touch of colour, it gives your complexion a healthy glow. As a professional tool, it shapes and models your face (cheekbones, browbones, forehead, chin, along the nose). 
Manufactured by a process exclusive to CHANEL, the compact and silky texture of JOUES CONTRASTE gives easy application and subtle blending. The brush is made of natural hair.
Highlighting your cheekbones enhances the youthful appearance of your face. For the eye zone, choose a satiny tone to soften and rejuvenate this area.
Use the integrated brush to apply a highlighting touch of JOUES CONTRASTE to cheekbones or accentuate the structure of the face.


The classic Chanel JC packaging that cannot be missed and resisted.


Pink Explosion is a shimmery but not overtly frosty blush with flecks of silver and opal color shimmer peeking through it to create that angelic glow (and glitter) on the face. Like the other Chanel Joues Contraste blushes, the formula is soft, easily picked up on the brush, supple, spreads evenly and imparts a lovely natural glow with angelic flecks of silver and opal that do not emphasize the pores. To add to its luxury, the blush has a lovely strong rosy fragrance that vanishes upon application and does not interfere or linger. This blush in incredibly pigmented and of course a little goes a long way. The formula is baked in the European version and helps creating that perfect glow with benefits of the blush as well.



Pink Explosion is a fine shimmery bright pink blush with warm nuances of rose and little more warm undertones (golden) with silver and opalescent flecks of shimmer that gives an angelic glow. On me it turns into a warm rosy pink with hither thither silvery specks of glitter which I love. On fairer skins, it would look more of a bright berry pink while on medium, olive or darker skins it would vary in application with the colors looking from a pop of pink to a lovely highlighter.


I got mine from Chanel Boutique in Palladium mall. I got the blush for 2550 INR for 4 gm. The availability is a question as its quite a rare one.

Hope you loved the review and of course the blush. Let me know in the comments.
