Throwing it waaaaay back again today with an oldie but goodie, Chanel Malice Blush. I 1st wrote about it in 2014! This peachy pink blush is even now a vintage, and I don it all the time. Oh, and the superior terrific information? Chanel even now carries it in their permanent assortment. Shockingly, contrary to other makes that have elevated their costs steadily around the previous number of a long time, Malice’s $45 price tag is nonetheless the identical as it was in 2014. If there was a handful of makeup from Chanel that I’d advise as will have to-haves items, Malice would unquestionably be on that list.

For the life of me, I can’t determine out why this blush is identified as Malice because it doesn’t have a destructive bone in its sweet, blushy human body. There is very little destructive, cagey or wicked about it at all…unless you rely how wicked sweet you look with yo’ new cheeks when you dress in it.

Peachy pink Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in Malice ($45) has been not-so-maliciously sweetening my make-up bag for about two months, and in that time I have basically not desired to have on something else. I believe it just could possibly be the most flattering blush in Chanel’s total long lasting line, and it’s all about flexibility.

Vehemently flexible

Malice is like NARS Orgasm…only not. Like, if glittery golden NARS Orgasm was a wild boy or girl sent to finishing school for a 12 months, she’d occur back sporting pearls rather of a leather jacket and be calling herself Malice.

Malice and Orgasm have a similar peachy pink vibe, but Malice’s shimmer, which is a lot more like a scarcely-there, smooth-concentrate sheen, is a lot considerably less outrageous and flamboyant.

And it is that end that makes Malice a single of the greats for me.

I believed it was a matte the 1st time I swatched it, but then I noticed the light reflecting on my pores and skin, almost like the dreamy haze of candlelight, and I realized its greatness.

Easy and flattering, it just usually seems to appear all-natural and fantastic — hardly ever like clown cheeks — whether I wear it sheer, or layered to maximize its intensity.

It really should seriously sing on a extensive variety pores and skin tones, and for the reason that its sheen is so forgiving (unlike many glittery and/or shiny blushes), that consists of the skin of more mature make-up lovers.

On prime of everything, it is just as uncomplicated to dress up as it is to gown down. I wore it to run some errands yesterday with the LORAC Professional Palette 2…

Okay, I went to Anthropologie to seem around, LOL! (Not my fault. There was a sale!)

So anyway, I wore it to run “errands,” also known as “go to the mall.”

Um…does this major make me glance insane?

I wore it since, very well, I believe it appears pretty in natural-wanting, dressed-down makeup appears to be like and helps make me look alive, but also because it carries remarkable eye seems effectively. It doesn’t compete with what ever else you could have going on your lids and lashes.

The very long-functioning Unsung Heroes collection options some of my most loved long term assortment items from a wide variety of bodacious splendor brand names.

Past 7 days I wore it with a thick black liner and a vivid coral lipstick, and I consider it balanced with what I had on my eyes and lips perfectly.

No matter whether as an each day blush, a likely-out blush — what have you — it is really just one of those blushes that goes with almost everything.

And for the reason that it strikes such a outstanding equilibrium among peach and pink, it partners effectively with peach lips, pink, coral and even orange lips, which are super trendy correct now.

But, Coco, it is mad high-priced!

Of course it is. Craaaaaaazy costly, as are the relaxation of the Chanel Joues Contraste Blushes at $45 just about every, but there’s high-quality there, and these are some of the easiest blushes I’ve ever utilized.

There are unquestionably much less high priced blushes out there, but if you’re definitely heading the substantial-conclusion blush route, a la Dior, Givenchy, Guerlain or YSL, I counsel getting a detour towards Malice or a single of the other Joues Contraste Blushes.

They’re just so easy! I hardly have to do any blending to get the edges nice and diffused. As well as, they are so easy to establish up in levels and very last all working day prolonged without touchups.

They’re actually some of the greatest doing products in the Chanel line, and Malice, I assume, is the greatest a single.

If a pal asked me to suggest just one particular of the Joues Contraste Blushes, I’d say Malice without a 2nd imagined.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
