The most beautiful blush - Chanel Holiday 2012 "Star Dust"

Hello Beauties!
Well... I just couldn't keep this one a secret for much longer haha!. I was going to keep it to feature in a haul, but I decided that It was just way too nice not to share with you all right away!. I wasn't sure about the Chanel Holiday collection for a while, as I wasn't really "Wowed" by it. The eye shadow quad is gorgeous, but not something I would wear... The sparkly powder was also lovely, but again I didn't think I would use it. SERIOUSLY? - How did I miss this gorgeous blush "Star dust" it's absolutely stunning, I'm totally in awe of it right now (as you can probably tell). 

I don't think I could have named this blush an better myself as the "Star dust" name really does it justice, because If I was to imagine Star dust... this blush would be it!. It is a really pale yellow-toned Pink with finely  milled warm shimmer. I'm a B30 and it shows up as a blush on me, but for someone with darker skin it may actually be better used as a highlighter. I must admit that was a huge initial draw for me, as I thought in the Winter it would make the most perfect soft blush, and in the Summer it would work as a highlighter on my more tanned complexion. 

I just can't get over how finely milled this blush is and the delicate sparkle really makes me feel like I am wearing Star Dust on my cheeks, the glitter isn't chunky or annoying in the slightest which makes the blush even more amazing.

What I like ?
I love that this blush can work as a blusher and a highlighter, as I feel it makes it more of a multi-use product instead of a standard "Blusher" or standard "Highlighter". The packaging is classic Chanel, which I love, because you really can't go wrong with it's class and quality. I would probably say this is the most delicate and beautiful blush I have ever owned, it's really special. I think that on fair complexions this blush is amazing, as well as working really well as a highlighter on darker skin tones.

What I don't like ?
I think the first factor always has to be the price as this blush is around £30.00 and it doesn't have the same amount of grams in comparison to cheaper high end blushers. Even though I'm obsessed with how beautiful this blush is, I do think that its quite limited to certain skin tones. If your skin tone is much more above a B30 in Chanel, then I would say that this wouldn't work as a blush for you. The brush that it comes with also really doesn't do anything for me, but I suppose its good to have it there.

It was so hard to get a picture even close enough to do this blush the justice it deserves, but hopefully you will get the idea. The lighting has been so terrible the past few days, which made it hard to get a shot of me wearing it as well :( 

I would love to know what you think ?
