Pink Ribbon (602)
Chanel Rose Ribbon (602) cheek contrast blush ($ 45.00 for 0.17 oz.) Is a medium dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was firmer, slightly stiff in the pan, which was unexpected, and so the product was harder to pick up on my brush and not as evenly applied to bare skin as this formula usually does.
I found it necessary to apply it over a firm primer as it tended to adhere more to areas where I first applied it but didn’t want to easily spread out for an even layer of product. It had a semi-opaque color cover that could be built up with a second layer until it was completely covered. Once arrived, it stayed fine for eight and a half hours before visibly fading.

The Joues Contraste formula is said to have a “buildable cover from natural to dramatic” with a “flattering look” and a “silky texture”. The pigmentation ranges from semi-transparent to completely opaque, depending on the technique and skin tone, but it appeared to be exactly as described – buildable – without having to pile it up or fade it out for too long. The formula has an extremely smooth, silky consistency that blends wonderfully on the skin. I wear most sunglasses for around eight hours.
The formula smells of roses, but the scent was largely undetectable (but recognizable in the compact).
