We interrupt this Rouge Bunny Rouge Marathon to bring you Chanel.......
......pink striped Chanel blush! Horizon Blush de Chanel was my pick from Chanel's Spring collection.
Pink + Chanel + blush = true love. I was never a math whiz, so let me just show you some more pictures.
The compact is the same size as a Chanel Joues Contraste. Here she is next to Pink Explosion:
And here is Horizon next to Guerlain Serie Noire Blush G:
A velvet pouch with a tiny and useless brush comes with Horizon. I am just glad they didn't waste space putting the brush inside the compact.
Horizon is swatched alone on the left. For curiosities sake, I swatched the bottom half in the middle, and top half on the right. I probably won't use it that way, but you could if that makes you happy.
Here is Horizon hanging out with her other pink blush BFFs:
Horizon isn't overly frosty or bright. Becca Gyspy is lighter and has a distinct sheen. Pink Explosion is a deeper pink with a matte finish and silver sparkles. Guerlain Serie Noire is a coral pink in comparison.
I also have a picture of it applied, to give you a better idea of the color. Here it is lightly:
And with a heavier application:
Horizon Blush de Chanel is a nicely done pink blush for spring. It isn't revolutionary or different. It is however, a pretty pink blush with a softly shimmery finish. The texture is smooth, and the color should be widely flattering. It can be subtly swept on, or easily built for more drama. If you love pink blush and can make room in your heart for another, you will need Horizon Blush de Chanel.
