This is from where my Joues Contraste journey started....all thanks to Prerna....Prerna gifted me my first Chanel JC blush and this is how the journey just started. I was so smitten by the color and it was just perfect for Spring 2013. This is a color that is all seasons and gives a perfect peaches and cream complexion with a few swishes of the blush brush.
Frivole means 'Vain' in French and yes its true....Seeing from the makeup artist's point of view this blush would create a whisper of color on the cheeks and its all so beautiful. I also got inspired to buy this blush after reading amazing review by Radhika of Weekend Ramblings and just before I could purchase it, Prerna gifted it to me....yipppeeee.....Anyways lets see what is all FRIVOLE about..............
Lets hear it from Chanel................
The touch of colour and radiance. Offers effects from very natural to very sophisticated. Used as a simple touch of colour, it gives your complexion a healthy glow. As a professional tool, it shapes and models your face (cheekbones, browbones, forehead, chin, along the nose). Manufactured by a process exclusive to CHANEL, the compact and silky texture of JOUES CONTRASTE gives easy application and subtle blending. The brush is made of natural hair.Highlighting your cheekbones enhances the youthful appearance of your face. For the eye zone, choose a satiny tone to soften and rejuvenate this area.Use the integrated brush to apply a highlighting touch of JOUES CONTRASTE to cheekbones or accentuate the structure of the face.
Chanel Joues Contraste blushes come in a luxury black glossy packaging with all the added luxuries (velvet sleeve et al) to make it look even more luxurious. LOL. Its a simple classic CHANEL product.
Frivole is a blush with a perfect satin finish. Its completely devoid of shimmer and extremely soft powdery blush that almost mimics a creamy finish on the face. The brush picks up a lot of product though so you have to be careful. Btw this goes with all the other JCs too. It gives a lovely glow on the face and makes the skin appear dewy and soft. The rosy fragrance adds a touch of luxury to the entire process. The formula per se is very very sheer and hence it must be built up to get that perfect flush.
Frivole is a luminous apricot-coral with a nuance of pink in it. It gives that healthy flush which could look good on anyone and everyone. It has a faint gold sheen that translates 'natural' on the face. On my neutral toned medium skin, Frivole looks more coral and has a subtle warmth. Its is definitely not peachy as people have described it. (Peach color is a very blatantly used term for anything and everything that looks like this). The color is very bright and looks simply beautiful. This color would look amazing on all skin colors and is incredibly wearable for any occasion. If you have the money, then get this blush as it suits all for all occasions.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
I bought mine from the Chanel Palladium store. Frivole costs 2550 INR for 4 gms of product. This is not a limited edition and is a part of Chanel's regular line up although it was launched in the Spring collection.
Hope you liked the review. Do let me know your thoughts in the comments. I think this is one blush which everyone should have.
