The Maison blusher is a limited edition piece that I had been lusting after since I saw the press release for the collection last month. It is a work of art! The powder is smooth to the touch, almost creamy. This, ladies and gentlemen, is luxury at its finest. The deep grooves in the embossment of the powder stunned me and most of you know I'm very particular with packaging so let me admit that this is one of the most beautifully constructed cosmetic products I've had the pleasure of owning. I literally gasped when I opened the compact! The shimmer effect on the street lamp and the Eiffel Tower is just an overspray, which disappears after the first use. I was afraid the three colors - an icy pink, pale peach, and medium pink - would disappear into my tanned Chanel 40 skin but they create the loveliest baby pink that does not turn red once oxidized, and yes - the color is apparent on my cheeks! I can, and will, use the three shades mixed as a blush all year round.

The product is made in Italy, for those curious!
And because I am hopelessly in love with this product, one last photo to capture the details!
Bottom Line: You need it. I'm buying a back-up.
