Orchid Rose was part of the Chanel’s permanent blush line but recently I’ve noticed it is discontinued! OMG Chanel how could you??? This is by far my favorite Chanel blush. Color is so simple but at the same time so flattering and goes with everything. It is medium pink with some mauve and peachy undertones.
In daylight and when applied on skin shimmer is not visible (or barely). But pictures without flash do not do justice to this blush, just do not show how beautiful it is.
You can see the multi colored shimmer in photos with the flash. Chanel has the nicest shimmer on the market, so subtle.
Powder is smooth, finely milled and blends easily. Color is buildable and would work for very light, light and medium skin tones.
Wearing Orchid Rose I got more compliments than with any other blush. I could wear simple makeup (foundation mascara and blush) and this blush would just give a pop of color and make it look special. Also I could wear it with dark and dramatic eye makeup and would still look great.
If I could pick only one Chanel blush it would be Orchid rose. If you have a chance grab it while you can!
I read on Cafemakeup that EU version is different in color, that is more peachy than US version.
