 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.
