Chanel Spring 2012 Harmonie de Printemps Horizon de Chanel Blush – Swatches and Review

The Horizon de Chanel Glowing Blush Harmony from Chanel’s Harmonie de Printemps collection is every bit as gorgeous as I’d anticipated. The strips of softly luminous colour paired with the chic raised Chanel logo make this a worthy blush to add to your collection regardless of how many pick blushes you may currently have in your stash. I would really suggest checking this blush out if you are just starting out in your Chanel adventure or in your high end makeup dabblings. Blush Horizon de Chanel is an excellent choice as it offers three shades in one compact. The individual shapes are too small to use individually but the top and bottom sections offer easy to use colours that are distinct from one another as well as the shade obtained by swirling your brush over the entire compact. Due to my recent job loss I am certainly strapped for funds so this was the only item I’ve picked up so far from the Spring Chanel collection. Depressing considering I think I picked up almost the entire Spring 2011 collection. Yes I’m pouting!

The top of the compact offers a truer pink where the bottom section offers a pink with a subtle peach tone.

Slightly warmer natural light.

The left most swatch is the top section, then the bottom section and the final swatch is the entire compact blended. These were applied with my finger tip. The blush is very soft and pigmented. It has a lovely luminosity that gives a nice glow to the skin. It is not shimmery or glittery but if applied very heavily the sheen could emphasize skin imperfection but I don’t see anyone applying this product heavily enough to experience that issue.
Here are the same three swatches as well as the addition of the far right area showing the blush blended on my inner wrist using the enclosed brush which is nice quality. Very soft and usable. 

Here are some comparisons to some other pink blushes in my collection. I’m very happy to see it is not a dupe to anything I have.

    That looks like a gorgeous blush! I like the different strips of colour, It makes me feel like I can create different shades having bought just one product. xxx

    I’m so sorry about your job loss Christa. I’ve cut back on my spending as well because I’m a bit nervous about my husband’s job and this too was the only item I got from Chanel’s spring collection, actually the only spring collection I bought from…but I just couldn’t resist because it’s that pretty! For me it’s a great everyday blush and I have worn it every day since I gave it to myself as a Christmas present, lol. I hope things get better next year. Happy New Year.

    Christa, I’m so sorry to hear about the job loss, although here’s to the future and better things to come your way! Love this blush and I’m dying to get my hands on it; you’d think that Montreal is in a parallel universe, that’s how long it takes for new releases to come here — sheesh! Anyway, lovely swatches…thanks for showing!

    Thanks Eugenia! I actually ordered this from the US because I don’t have the patience to wait for the Canadian release nor do I like paying the Canadian prices on Chanel!
