Chanel Joues Contraste 73 Star Dust review, photos, swatches

Chanel Joues Contraste in Star Dust is part of Chanel Holiday 2012 Collection “Eclats du soir”
Color is described as Shimmering soft pink

I have tried this multiple times and was not sure about it. Color is extremely sheer and I was sure it will not show up on me. The only reason I broke down and bought it is extremely beautiful and never seen shimmer. 
Capturing real beauty in photos was pretty hard but I tried my best.
Lighter skin tones can wear this as a blush while medium might use it as highlighter. Or as a blush over another blush as a base, or over cream base that would help color to show up more.

I am not sure if it’s work or day appropriate blush but I guess it depends on your work environment and your personal preference. 
I can see it working nicely over Rose petale, Orchid rose or Roce ecrin blushes. Or any pink or peachy blush. 
I like how it pulls slightly warmer on my skin than it’s in the pan.
I took gazillion photos trying to capture all the shimmer in it.

Overall – LOVE AND MUST HAVE!!
