I apologise for going MIA lately. With the bout of sickness, work stress and my dance rehearsals, it is getting really hard to motivate myself to blog. I don't even have the energy to buy makeup! Anyway, I finally have a little free time to compose this and I thought I would share one of my latest buys which I really could not resist.
Out of the whole Chanel Mediterranee collection, I was only interested in the two blushes. I still read makeup blogs and the moment I saw the colours and swatches, I knew I had to get down to my local counters to check them out. On the rare occasion, I managed to drag myself out of my house, I swatched both of them, I love both shades so I had to get both of them.
I love the packaging. They are housed in hefty metal tubes with beige interlocking Cs instead of the usual white. They click shut so no worries of the cap coming off and dirtying your makeup pouch.

N21 is a lovely bright rosy pink shade and N22 is a coral orange shade perfect for summer. They are matte and blend very easily over and under powder. I usually apply to swipes on my cheek bones and use my fingers to blend. Perfect for those no fuss makeup days where you just want to swipe and go. They last about 4 to 5 hours on me before gently fading to just a hint of colour.
