Chanel Jardin de Chanel - Camelia Rose Blush

Let's pretend I didn't declare any kind of silliness about buying nuthin' because THAT is just ridiculosity.  Eh?  Eh?

You know when you just have one of those weeks when you are sick and tired and tired and sick?  After work I flounced into the Chanel boutique on East 57th Street to see if the Spring 2015 collection was out and yes, yes it was.
I came out with a little black shopping bag, tied with a white grosgrain ribbon and adorned with the white CHANEL camellia flower.  A little retail therapy can feel nice.

I had my eyes set on this beauty.  It doesn't even matter that we are only just approaching winter.  What a beauty.
It is heavily rose scented, which may or may not bother folks.  I loved it, the whole scented and intricately embossed floral pan.

Quick swatch here.  I have Rose Ecrin on the left and Camelia Rose on the right.
It is a very pretty pink.  While is it not exactly the cool lavender tinted pink of the promotional images, it is certainly cooler than the warmer Rose Ecrin.  There are some sparse shimmer visible in the pan, but it applies satin on my skin.  It is very soft and only moderately pigmented.

It killed me a little bit to swatch this thing!  It is very tiny, smaller than a regular US Joues Contraste and even smaller than the baked version.  There is that.

Retail therapy lately, too?

And thank you all so much for abundantly shopping my blog sale!  There are a few more items left (all lovely things) and I'm sure they would be so happy to live in your vanity!
