Chanel Poudre Universelle Compacte Pressed Powder in Rose Merveille

Chanel Poudre Universelle Compacte Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Rose Merveille has become my winter bronzer subsitute. I'm too pale for bronzer but want a little color to brighten up( I don't like being pale).

The color in the pan is defintely peach-beige but don't be scared, it just warms up skin. I am pale, although not pasty, and I get just  a hint  of color from this. There is shimmer in there but it's not allover heavy. I  could see a few sparkles here and there but  nothing overdone.

It helps of course that the powder itself is so soft ,smooth and perfecting on your face. It's been a long time since I used a Chanel pressed powder and I had forgotten how nice they are. It's a bit like a soft focus filter.

Part of the Spring  Les Perles Des Chanel collection  on counter in January at $ 44.00 and  LE.

Could you use this as a blush since it seems to give off enough color? thanks! :)

H, I originally thought it could be a blush as well but it applies sheerer than the color on the pouf seems. I really don't get enough color out of it for a blush. I am pale although not uber pale. If you are that, it might work, but I still think not. Hope that helps.
