Chanel is set to release four new blushes over the next few weeks. Two of these are new shades–Chanel Tumulte and Chanel Malice (reviewed here). Two are reformulations of former shades, reformulated in the powder, U.S. versions–Pink Explosion and a very deep purple/mauve Chanel Plum Attraction. For a description of the differences between U.S. and non-U.S. Chanel Joues Contraste blushes, see this review. Malice looks much peachier than the others in the picture, above. However, in my opinion Malice is not a true peach. Compared with true peach blushes, Malice has a touch of pink/red.
This review is a first look at Chanel Joues Contraste Malice (#71)($43/ Fard a Joues Poudre), a pretty pink-peach that has a touch of soft, subtle sparkle.
As with the other Chanel Joues Contraste blushes, Malice comes in the familiar black square compact with the tiny brown-bristled brush.
Malice is a pretty, soft peach with a touch of pink. Here is a comparison with Chanel Malice, Chanel Rose Petale, Chanel Tweed Corail, and Chanel In Love:
I literally put these pictures up as my first opportunity, based on reader feedback that sooner is better. I’ll play with this during this week, and am hoping to get some more pictures. So far, so good!
