Chanel Joues Contraste in Candy #13


I picked up Joues Contraste in Candy #13 from the Harrods Chanel pop-up counter.  As far as I'm aware, this shade is not normally available in the UK.  After a quick google search, it appears Candy might be a permanent shade in Asia.

As with all Joues Contrastes that I have used/swatched, the powder is very soft to touch and blends seamlessly.  The shimmer in Candy is understated but brings a radiance to your cheeks immediately.

I've found Candy to be very wearable.  One look I like to do with my peach blushes is to run the colour from cheek to cheek across the nose.  It gives a very natural sunkissed look sans bronzer.

I am not a fan of the name Candy but it is the most lovely colour.  Candy is a soft milky peach with subtle pink shimmer.  Some peach blushes have a tendency to appear orange when applied, and Candy is definitely not one of those.  I have tanned olive skin and the colour shows up wonderfully when layered.
