Admiring: Chanel Jardin de Chanel Blush Camelia Rose


This is not going to be a review post! For once I'm allowing myself the luxury of just, you know, oohing and aahing over something for a little while.  Besides I think this blush is pretty well sold out everywhere by now...

I wasn't even seriously planning to buy Chanel's Jardin de Chanel Blush in Camelia Rose until I spotted it as I walked past the Chanel boutique on a random Sunday shopping trip.  Even then I still wasn't going to buy it until my husband said, "Just go into the shop". Oh no...you know where this is going... I went in, swatched it and it was so smooth under my fingertips. Then the SA asked would I like to try it on my cheeks? Of course the two shades melded together to create the perfect spring rose pink on my face and then she tells me this is the last one they have in stock.  Limited Edition...Last one in stock...Beautiful *sigh*...and gone forever if I don't swoop now!

So, here I am $95 poorer but happier...and isn't this damn thing just too pretty to use? I will use it eventually but I've taken a whole lot of pictures first...








Have you been in this situation? Did you buy or walk away?

  1. Your husband is the best! :) I don't know, I think if it makes you so happy, it's definitely worth it sometimes! And the last one! Meant to be!

    1. I knowwwww...it's extremely pretty as is and very soft so that embossing wouldn't last too long after using it!
