Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Brun Rose Review

November 1, 2011

 Chanel Les Tissages de Chanel Blush in Tweed Brun Rose ($45 / #70) is a finely-milled, complex blush with subtle shimmer.  The color is a mix of brown, rose, gold and peach.  Here is the pan as it arrives from Chanel, with a light dusting of gold overspray.  A quick sweep removes most of the gold shimmer.

The color virtually melts into the skin, the quality is really excellent.  I’ve worn this over Ko Gen Do Foundation, and thought that the effect was extremely natural.  Although pictured here on Liz wearing a light pink lipstick (Chanel Crystal, which is no longer made), Tweed Brun Rose will look lovely with red, beiges, peaches and nude lip colors as well.

 Chanel Tweed Brun Rose applies as a pink-peach-nude. It has more color than most other nude blushes, here pictured with Nars Madly, Nars Loveljoy, and Chanel Fandango.  Tweed Brun Rose is much more nude/bronze compared with last year’s Chanel Espiegle:

 I didn’t expect to like Chanel Tweed Brun Rose, but after playing with the color for several days it won me over completely. The color is tenacious–it doesn’t fade.  The texture is beautiful in that it does become part of the skin without looking powdery.  The texture is not as “glowy” as blushes from Chanel’s Joues Contraste collection, the overall impression is slightly more matte with a tiniest bit of shimmer.  The color is gorgeous–a beautiful, natural, year-round shade.

    This is so pretty to just look at, and looks gorgeous on you as well.

    I was going to pass this by but I am a fair blonde as well and I think I need to go test this color!
    Also, that has to be one of the blackest mascaras ever, which brand/color is it?

    How does the Tweed Brun Rose blush compare with Chanel’s Coral Tweed blush? Is it different enough from Coral Tweed to justify purchasing in your view? Thank you.

      Yes! They are very different. As the names suggest, Tweed Corail is much brighter and is coral, regathering than nude/ pink/ peach.

      Hi Fleur,

      Sabrina at the Beauty Look Book has comparison swatches of several of the Tweed blushes. Just go to her site and type in Brun Rosé.

      I have both Corail and Brun Rosé and find they look quite different on my fair, warm complexion. Tweed Corail is a light, bright sunny coral. Brun Rosé is a deeper burnished rosewood. Both give a translucent, natural glow.

    I love this blush. Which foundation (and shade) is Liz wearing here? Her skin looks fantastic.

    • Amy November 2, 2011 at 7:42 am

      Perfection Lumiere Beige Rose 32.

    I just cannot get over the range of colors that Liz is able to wear! Her skintone is remarkable and her skin itself is just beautiful- can you do a skincare post?

    Do you know if they are going to sell this in Holland, the holiday collection is out but this is not in the display?

    • Amy November 2, 2011 at 11:05 am

      I’m sorry I do not know. Do you have a Chanel EU website with an email address for the company? They will give you the most accurate response…

    How does the Tweed Brun Rose blush compare with Chanel’s Rose Tweed blush? I am wondering if I already have Rose Tweed if I also need Brun Rose.

      Hi Susan,

      As I advised Fleur, go to The Beauty Look Book and type in Brun Rosé. Sabrina has comparison swatches of several Tweed blushes. I have all three of the Tweed blushes mentioned in these comments: Corail (light, sunny coral), Rose (classic, soft rose), and Brun Rosé (warm, burnished rosewood). They are all quite different on my fair warm complexion. But as I said, check out Sabrina’s site for the swatches.

    does any one know if they will be selling this product in Holland or other Europeaan countries??
