Chanel Émotion #87 Powder Blush


There's a new blush from Chanel in the US (separate from the holiday collection) called Émotion #87 ($43 for 6 g/0.21 oz). It's a pigmented satiny rose pink. The color is one of the darkest and most pigmented blushes I've seen from Chanel in quite some time. Émotion has a soft subtle shimmer to it in the pan but it applies with a very soft glow with a healthy flush. It's the perfect pink to add color but doesn't darken or look too bright on the skin.



It applies very smoothly on my skin. The color shows up quite well. It's a bright color with a soft finish.



At first glance I thought it would be similar to Tom Ford Wicked. It's a bit different - Chanel Émotion has a softer and more delicate finish while Tom Ford Wicked is a bit sharper in color. Below: Chanel Turbulent (discontinued), Tumulte, Rose Petale and Tom Ford Wicked (on backorder at Neimans).



I'm a huge fan of Chanel blushes. I love their soft texture and layerable colors. Émotion proves to be one of the darker more pigmented colors. I give it a huge thumbs up. I recommend checking Weekend Ramblings, Jayded Dreaming and Color Me Loud for additional swatches.

I purchased my Émotion #87 blush in store at Nordstrom, online at Nordstrom.com.

  7. I like the chalen better than the tom ford. I agree with you, it has more elegant finish compared to the tom ford, maybe because tom ford is little bit more shimmery. I would love to try the rose petal from chanel.
