Lancôme 29, Saint Honoré Maison Lancôme blush

Breathtaking. Stunning. Beautiful. Collectors item. These are the words you will use to describe the blusher I have the pleasure of showing you today. It holds pride of place in my blusher collection and I open it up and just stare at it I kid you not! It took me forever to even swatch it because I didn't want to touch it but alas I must for blogging purposes. I have for you today the Lancôme 29, Saint Honoré Maison Lancôme blush.


A while back I had the pleasure of attending the Lancôme launch event for the Lancôme 29, Saint Honoré collection at an exclusive Sydney mansion. This beautiful collection is created by Lancôme's leading makeup artist Aaron De Mey and is inspired by the late 1940s fatale chic trend. It celebrates the ultimate feminine woman and her willingness to express her femininity through makeup.


What they say:

"The very essence of Paris has been infused into this season’s blush to represent the historical Lancôme institute at 29, Faubourg, Saint Honoré.

Created as a true work of art, this blush has all the allure of a pretty vintage postcard, telling the beautiful tale of Paris at the end of the 1940s. Its case is engraved with a golden plaque, reminiscent of the Capital’s most distinguished addresses. Discover the universal harmony of tender rose, decorated with a delicate sprinkling of gold."



Isn't it absolutely beautiful? The blush consists of a dark pink, a light pink and a beigy peach with some gold overspray on the Eiffel Tower and lampost. To apply, Aaron De Mey recommends "blending the three shades with a brush, then use generous movements to sweep them up towards the temples, sculpting cheekbones and brightening the complexion." It gives a nice soft matte pink colour to my cheeks, like a subtle glow. It is VERY sheer but is somewhat buildable to a certain degree.


It's a very pale colour so it swatches quite light on me:


When applied quite heavily (sorry for the bare minimum makeup look):

You can really see my pigmentation here =(





Overall: Maison Lancôme blush is a simply stunning blush. No doubt about it. It is definitely a collectors item that is a must for blusher fiends like yours truly! However it's not a product that is a must for the everyday makeup collection. I do wish it was more pigmented - even though I apply with a very heavy hand it still only just shows on my cheeks. I guess this is a positive in that you can apply in the dark without a mirror and still achieve the perfect natural flush!

Details: Lancôme 29, Saint Honoré Maison Lancôme blush is available now for a limited time only from Adore Beauty and David Jones and Myer stores nationally for $75.

US ladies can purchase it online from Lancome USA and Sephora for $40US.

Now that I've swatched it for you it's going back in my dresser not to be touched again x) Thanks for looking as always! Aussie ladies don't forget to enter my Vaseline Aloe Fresh Lotion with SPF 15 giveaway here!
