Collection Byzance de Chanel : Rouge Blush

I've seen swatches of "Rouge", read blogs that rave about it (epecially Kas and Joey) and I never really thought about getting it... cos it just look too RED!

2 days ago, pop by the counter at Takashimaya(Singapore) with Verlyn, even when she swatched it "live" in front of me, I still think it's was too red for my liking................................................. until the BA do a light brushing(using the blush brush provided) of "Rouge" on her arm and ................ "I'm in LOVE"

Trying to be sensible... I didn't buy it on the spot... anyway, I gave in and bought it on the next day(which is yesterday).

Close up... (Cos of my lighting, it appear more reddish.. but the tone is about the same...)

Then the one taken without flash ... look really close to the actual shade in the pan.

Swatches.... (Left: Blended out with a brush / Right: Swatch with my finger)

When I saw the Rouge at the counter, it reminds me of MAC Style demon, so I tweeted Kas asking her whether it's a dupe... nope.... else, I would have saved D$65! (lolx)

Left: MAC style Demon / Right: Chanel Rouge

MAC style demon are less reddish as compare to Chanel Rouge.. it appear to be more peaches and the glitters are also abit more chunky(not that it feel chunky.. style demon was pretty smooth too)..

Chanel Rouge look more like strawberry reddish with gold sheen (with super fine gold glitters)

Swatches...

 

Pics don't do justice on how pretty "Rouge" look when swatched on fair skin... You have to check it out in person to be WOW by it. Just pop by Takashimaya or Isetan Chanel Counters to check it out.(Centerpoint - Chanel Counter don't have this collection)
