Chantecaille Cheek Gelée in the shade ‘Happy’ (a name which could not be more apt) is a staple in my makeup bag, especially in Spring and Summer. With its beautiful colour, luminosity and formula – this one is definitely not to be missed!
The formula is a gel-cream hybrid that is beautifully smooth and easy to apply with the fingers. The product also isn’t too pigmented that you ruin your makeup by being heavy handed, yet layers nicely, allowing you to build up the colour to your desired intensity. The colour ‘Happy’ is a beautiful pale pink with slight shimmers. Don’t let the shimmer put you off, it still manages to look natural – no chunky glitters here! It’s also perfect on my pale natural skin as well as when I have fake tan on.
If you have oily skin and usually run in the opposite direction of liquid or cream products or when you hear the words ‘luminous and glowy’ – fear not! The formula works well on my oily skin, so I don’t have to worry about it sliding off my face or accentuating my pores. It is luminous, but in a non-greasy kinda way. Hurrah.
Although on the pricey side at £36, a little goes a long way. I particularly love this blush when I’m going for an overall more natural look, paired with a light base it looks incredible. I now have my eye on the other shade ‘Lively’ which is more peachy toned in colour. I’m also intrigued by their Radiance Gel Bronzer which looks like it will be similar in formula to the blushes!
