Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel swatches and review

When I was in Hong Kong a few months ago, I picked up my very first Chanel blush - Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel from the Spring 2012 collection. I went into the Chanel makeup store determined to only pick up the Rouge Coco Shine in Flirt but somehow walked out with both! x) I am a sucker for Spring collections and just couldn't resist this gorgeous pink peach blush. It is just so darn luxe like all other Chanel products!


What they say:

"The luminous hues of sunset are now captured in one elegant highlighting face powder. Subtle gradations of rose, coral and peach can be applied on their own or blended together to highlight and sculpt the face or achieve an overall warmth and radiance.

To create freshness, use all of the blush shades as a harmony and sculpt your face using the beveled brush. For a healthy look, apply only the pink shade to the upper cheekbones and temples. For a glowing complexion, use the sun-kissed effect of a cloud of peach."


It's packaged in the signature chic Chanel black and white compact and comes with a beveled brush and velvet pouch. Sooooooo luxurious!!


Blush Horizon de Chanel is described as a highlight powder and has strips of dark pink, rose, coral, white and peach which can be swirled together or used individually. My blush brushes are way too big to use the strips individually so I prefer to use them all for a soft glow.

Overall: Blush Horizon de Chanel is a beautiful and very wearable blush - perfect for Spring! The texture is smooth and gives my cheeks a gorgeous subtle pink glow. It's not supposed to be super pigmented and just gives the skin a lovely healthy glow. I like to swirl the colours together and I find it starts to fade after about 8hours.

While I love it, it pains me to say that it's not the most unique blush out there and not really worth the exxy price tag. It's great if you have pale skin (like me) so that you can use it as both a highlighter and blush for a pretty pink glow. For those with darker skin it might now show up as well as a blush but would be great as a highlighter. You can't go past the fact that it's GORGEOUS and that it's Chanel though and I'm happy that it's my first Chanel blush. It's so wearable and I will definitely get my money's worth from it as I'll be wearing it a lot!

Details: Being a limited edition item unfortunately I don't think it's available any more, BUT you may be lucky. It retailed for $90 here in Aus, $58US in the US and $540HK in Hong Kong.


Thanks for looking! =)

    1. It's so unfortunate that all the beautiful items are always limited edition! We need to petition the brands to make everything permanent!

  6. It's so pretty, I almost picked it up at the airport when I went overseas in Feb but decided it wasn't something I really needed. It looks great on you, as does the lippy. x

    1. Thanks lovely Emma! =) I was hesitant to get it at first too but it's much cheaper overseas. You should still get at least one Chanel blush! ;)
