Joues Contraste in #85 Evocation & #86 Discretion, Two New Powder Blush from Chanel

Full moon in Capri is beautiful and I am enjoying it while I type these lines. I could enjoy it even more if I wouldn't type at all and watch it set over the sea but this post can't wait anymore. I found these two beauties by chance and quickly swatched and took photos right before I leave. Let me present you two new powder brush from Chanel, Joues Contraste in #85 Evocation and #86 Discretion.

Joues Contraste in #85 Evocation & #86 Discretion
Although I don't have lots of information regarding the release, I believe those will be released together with new Vitalumiere Compact Douceur powder foundation. As release date October is given but I see that those starting popping out here and there, so if you would like them, keep an eye or ask your counter. I am hearing that Evocation will be permanent but Discretion is a limited edition.


Joues Contraste in #85 Evocation & #86 Discretion

Joues Contraste in #86 Evocation has a tone between a bronzer and a blush if this makes sense. This will be perfect to prolong our sun kissed faces during fall. What I like about it is that it is not too brown which sometimes look too orangey or too warm on me. I think Evocation will work across the skin tones. Discretion on the other hand is for the fair ladies out there. As you can see on my tanned arm swatch below, it acts as a matte "highlighter" on my skin. Some of you may think of Stardust which was released for holiday 2012. I don't own it to compare but I have found it on this website, and Stardust seems to be more shimmery. Both of the shades read more matte, with very sparse shimmer, just enough to give a lit from within look. You can check the promo pictures here (text is in German).

Final thoughts: Two new pretty Joues Contraste with buttery and beautiful texture and very sparse shimmer for a lit from within look. I am very excited about #85 Evocation and love its balance between bronze and rose, great addition to the permanent line. #86 Descretion should excite the fair ladies more, and if you have your eyes on that one, remember that it is limited edition. Everyone darker than NC25-30 may find it useful as a highlighter.

What do you think about the release of a new powder foundation of Chanel? Are you a powder foundation kind of gal?

  1. Evocation is promising! Discretion is most probably going to look ashy on me, so I'll skip that!

    1. Ashy, yes, right now it is what it looks on me since I got a super tan. But in winter I may able to wear it, I am hoping at least ;-)

  2. Are these EU baked formula? Are they going to be released worldwide?

    1. Hi LilJeJa,
      Yes those are both baked formulas. I don't know if these will be released in US since in the past there are a few blushes which were not released. But the promo pictures look like they will be released worldwide (since blushes are on the promos too)

  3. Evocation looks like it'll be too dark/ brown for my skin to handle, but Discretion definitely has possibilities. Judging from the picture, I'd say it looks cooler and pinker than Star Dust, which is a very peachy pink, plus Star Dust is quite sparkly.

    1. Hi Kate,
      Yes the one looks good on your light complexion is probably Discretion. Have you checked the link above, someone already swatched Discretion against Stardust.

  5. Both look tempting, Chanel sure seem to be releasing more and more mini collections these days. I'll keep my eye out for these, thanks for the heads up :)

    1. Hi Clare,
      Yes it is weird about the small collections. I suppose those couldn't go to Fall collection because they had enough blushes there (6 to be specific) so they decided to release it with the next collection or something :-)

  6. Evocation! While I really dislike the baked eye quads, I love the blushes. I have to check this out. I don't have this shade in my stash :-P
