Chanel Powder Blush #72 Rose Initiale – Fall 2012

The Rose Initiale powder blush is Chanel’s Fall 2012 addition to their blush collection and this is a permanent shade, not a limited edition. Chanel describes Rose Initiale as a universally flattering blush for all skin tones and I couldn’t agree more! In my opinion it’s a perfect pink, not too cool and not too warm.

Rose Initiale has a gorgeous petal pink base with finely milled shimmers. Unfortunately the shimmer isn’t very visible on my skin, but it does give a beautiful color depth. In my opinion this beautiful blush is suitable on most skin tones. The powder is very fine-milled and soft which makes it really easy to apply.

I really love the bright pink color it gives to my cheeks. Here’s a picture of me wearing the blush;

All in all, I think this blush is a perfect pink and definitely a must-have to my collection. I must admit, it’s been long since I ‘ve used blush on a daily basis, but this one from Chanel has made me want to wear it everyday! Anyone who likes pink-toned blushes is going to love the luscious color.
