Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush (71) Malice Review


Hi everyone! Today I’m reviewing the Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in shade Malice which is a lovely warm peach toned color. I have previously tried the Cream Blush in Revelation and it is one of my favorite blushes of all time (I’ve hit pan on a blush for the first time!). The Joues Contraste powder blush formula is the one of the silkiest I’ve tried and truly feels worth the price tag.

Price : $45.00 (around Rs 2800 in India)

It comes in a black casing with the brand logo on the cover. Inside, it houses the blush in a dome shape and a small brush and mirror for application. I generally toss out the brushes that come with the packaging but this one isn’t too scratchy and has a nice fluffy feel so I’ve kept it for emergencies. The blush is quite soft and meant to be used with a soft brush as a rougher one will definitely end up kicking up excess powder (and wastage of the expensive product!). Its very silky and blends beautifully on the skin. The formula is one of the nicest I’ve ever tried and beats NARS too in my opinion. Even though its quite soft and silky, it never looks chalky or dry on the skin and has a beautiful finish. The color pay off is good and its not overly pigmented, so with a controlled hand, you can wear it quite light or build it up to a more intense color. I’ve found the staying power to be fairly good on my oily skin. I get an easy 6-7 hours after which is fades but doesn’t vanish completely. The blush has a faint floral (rose?) scent which you may not really notice unless you sniff it up close.

Malice is a lovely warm peachy color which is not quite pink, not really coral, but a little bit of everything with a hint of earthiness. The slight gold shimmer is very refined and shows itself as a barely-there sheen on the skin. The overall effect is a beautiful warm flush that looks lovely on the Indian complexion! Just like my first Chanel blush, Revelation Cream Blush, I see this one becoming a favorite!

Rating : 5/5

    Gorgeous shade! It’s suiting you perfectly. 🙂 I am not a blush person because blushes take so much effort, precise blending and all! 😝

      Hi Swagata, Chanel has its own exclusive stores in cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore. I’m sure a little google search will help you find the exact store address in your city.
