Le Blush Creme de Chanel - Intonation (69)

Chanel cream blush Intonation launched a while back as part of the Chanel Spring 2014 makeup collection - funny how parts of the country are just starting to see some sun but spring makeup collections are already "a bit old" :P  Back to the blush, though, this is a light coral pink that translates to mostly light pink on my skin.  The packaging is classic black Chanel compact, similar to what the powder blushes come in but smaller size - lesser quantity.

Chanel Intonation is a warm pink with some coral tones to it, and on swatches on my hand it does look like a warm pink, but buffed and blended on my cheeks, the color translates to a light pink.  It is quite a subtle blush, and while the color is easy to build up, applying in excess makes it look an ashy-whitish pink on my darker skin.  The finish is powdery matte with a bit of a sheen to it.  Here's a look at Chanel Intonation on my darker Indian skin.

The blush is a lighter color and I don't think it shows up all that well at all in this photo, but this isn't the sort of color that would show up too well on my skin.  I have found the Tom Ford Cream Foundation brush the best to apply Chanel cream blushes, and once properly blended into the skin, I do find the color lasts almost the entire day.

Overall, Chanel Intonation is a nice blush for when I want a subtle, healthy pink flush, but it's not a shade I would pick for someone my skin tone or darker.  I prefer Chamade - the other blush from Chanel's Spring 2014 collection.
