The first, very welcome, addition of theirs to my make up collection is the new Cheek Creme in Playful, a gorgeous pink-with-a-hint-of-coral cream blush packed with antioxidants and infused with Lily bulb and Peach extracts to protect the skin from environmental damage.
As Chantecaille now only sell their cheek and eye products as refillables in an effort to be more environmentally friendly, you have to purchase the palette too. The Pebble Palette (pictured) fits it perfectly and has a mirrored lid, perfect for topping up on the go. The two together cost £29 which is a little pricey compared to other cream blushes, on the market, but you have to remember that Chantecaille is very much a luxury brand, and for the price, you get a luxury product.
Firstly, the texture of the blush is delicious - as you put it on your skin, it's like velvet, and seems to blend perfectly where you need it. It transforms from cream to powder, leaving a hint of luminosity to the cheeks. The colour is buildable, but I find you don't need much, one gentle application is all I used in the photograph above, so it's going to be knocking around for a while. Lastly, staying powder. It just stays... all day.
Chantecaille Cheek Creme is available at Chantecaille counters now priced at £29.
