Chanel Horizon Blush- To use or not to use?


Hi ladies,

Happy Saturday! 

I hope you are having a lovely day. 

I did a wedding trial today! Love weddings. I get exited and hyped by the joy that a happy couple decides to celebrate their commitment and that it all involves make-up too! :)

I was recommended by another bride I did last summer so as with any other business word of mouth is the best ever marketing. 

I will be sharing photos on that in May when the wedding takes place. I didn't want to scare the bride by flashing my cannon on her face all for the sake of my blog :).

And if you are interested- here's a link to my website for my MUA work. Eventually this blog will migrate there. Link! 

 So on to the post of today!

A few weeks ago I purchased this fabulous blush! I missed out on so many Chanel LE blushes so I was so happy to get my hands on this one!

It's the perfect blush for me- some peach, some pink, some plumb and some highlight. You can't resist it.






But funny enough- I don't use it! I haven't even swatched it yet!

Ever since watching Lisa Eldridge's video on her Viva make-up I grasped the idea of collecting make-up. And in fact I have been doing that for some years now. Some MAC blushes that have gorgeous overlays same with the Estee Lauder Bronzer with the peachy star. I by in pairs! Is that crazy?

Well, with this Chanel blush I got just one. It was expensive so I said-mmm maybe not this time!
But now I'm not sure if I shall use it or not. It looks soooo pretty on the pan.



Sometimes I feel I should enjoy all I have. And trust me I do! I use everything I have and I love using my high-end stuff for everyday. What's the point of spending the money then?
But I do get every now and then this little bug that tells me to have one odd thing just for the sake of collecting.

I'm still debating!

What do you think? Do you collect anything? Any make-up that you bought and never used?

    This is such a pretty blush. I would have to use it if I had it. x

    lovely blush I knew it would be the sort of thing you'd buy when I saw it in the shops! It's coming up on Buyapowa soon so may have to jump on that! x

    It&#39;s a gorgeous blush, I wouldn&#39;t want to ruin it either! <br />If you are serious about collecting though, I think you could leave it and maybe try and find a cheaper colour dupe?<br />It&#39;s totally up to you though, let us know what you decide!<br /><br /><a href="http://makeupforbiochemists.blogspot.com" rel="nofollow">Makeup for Biochemists</a><br /><br />xx

    That blush is amazing! I hear you about collecting makeup for the sake of collecting. I am starting to get to the point of actually wanting to use stuff and get it completely used up! But if I were buying high-end makeup, I may not want to use it! Just have it around to look at too :)

    Do you know of any dupe? It&#39;s a hard one because it has so many colours so you can mix and match. I haven&#39;t decided yet. I&#39;ll defo let you know. Thanks! X

    I know what you think and what you mean. We&#39;ll see- and what kills me is that it could be THE summer blush. X
