Chanel Chamade (67) Le Blush Creme de Chanel ($38.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “deep pink.” It looks rather red in the pan, and applied, it’s more like a reddish-pink with subtle cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. It is extremely pigmented; as in, a couple pats of color onto the cheeks is plenty for fair to medium complexions. The consistency is lightweight, creamy initially, but it quickly sets to a soft, powdery texture that is easy to blend out on the skin. It lasted well for nine hours on me before showing signs of fading. Chanel Affinite (65) (P, $38.00) is much lighter. MAC Keep It Casual (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer. Chanel Rouge (LE, $43.00) is powder and more shimmery. Burberry Hydrangea Pink (P, $42.00) is slightly pinker, powder. See comparison swatches.

Intonation (69) Le Blush Creme de Chanel ($38.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “warm rose.” It’s a pink-tinted coral with a satin-matte finish and warm undertones. This was incredibly rich in color payoff, so a little goes a long way, but the lighter color (in general) makes it easier to blend out if you over-apply. When I wore it, the color lasted well for just over nine hours. If Presage was too orange, you might love Intonation. MAC Autoerotique (LE, $25.00) is a powder, lighter. NARS Day Dream (LE, $29.00) is a powder, slightly lighter. Too Faced Melt Into Spring (LE) is also a powder and is pinker. Tom Ford Beauty Flush (P, $55.00) is brighter, powder. Burberry Blossom (P, $42.00) is less pink, powder. See comparison swatches.

Great, this did not disappoint! I am having big hopes for Intonation. I currently own Presage and it’s like you say. I actually love both options and I can not wait to get my hands on these!

This cream blush series from Chanel made up my most favorite blush this year. Purchased Inspiration in October and haven’t touched any other thing I have from MAC or Bobbi Brown. It is so easy to use, wears great, and looks so natural. Also is really blendable. I remember you gave a good grade for that as well. I love it and am sure that it will be my first blush ever that I’ll hit pan on!

What’s the easiest way to apply cream blushes, Christine? I’m scared to use my fingers because I’m afraid the warmth from them will affect my foundation as well. 🙁

Intonation is so pretty! I’ve been eyeing presage for a while but I may have to try this one as well. I’ve also been thinking about picking up Burberry Blossom too. Bah, so many good options to choose from…

You can wear it as sheerly or as intensely as you’d like, so it’s totally possible to wear it on fair skin – you’ll just want to be careful to use less than you think, then build up!

I would love to treat myself to Intonation for Christmas but I recently bought Revelation. It took me a while to find it as it was always out of stock. Seems not too dissimilar although Intonation looks more rosy-pink to me. I agree with you, Christine. This blush formula and the shades that Chanel has released in it have to be right up there with the top product releases of 2013. We had a lot of good stuff come out this year….but my vote for best would certainly be these blushes. Thanks for the review, as always.

If you wear any of them really, really lightly, even if one is more intense than the other, they’ll more alike applied (because you’re not wearing it as in-the-pan intensity!).

May i know how does Chamade compares to Mac franklet scarlet and is Chamade limited edition? Btw both of the colours look amazing on you!!

Frankly Scarlet is redder, not really pink! Chanel’s press release listed Chamade as permanent – you can check for yourself in the future as you will see either P, LE, or DC over the image in the Glossover, which indicates Permanent, Limited Edition, or Discontinued! Hope this helps! 🙂

Okay! Thank you so much! I am so going to get Chamade since Frankly Scarlet is not available in Singapore! I have been reading your blog for quite a long time, i can’t believe i didn’t notice it..

Both are beautiful! I have at least 3 or 4 dupes for Intonation. Chamade seems a little more unique and I’m definitely enthusiastic. It looks like it blends out very nicely even though it is highly pigmented.

I’m definitely getting chamade. I have to return a ysl glossy stain that I think I won’t get much wear out of and I can get this instead

On another note I thought you might like to know that the new MAC collections are up on nordstroms website. I just ordered a skinfinish from the collection

OMG!! These are soooooo gorgeous! I Just picked up a YSL cream blush today and I am already contemplating another shopping spree – even when I don’t generally care for cream blushes. These look gorgeous in the pan Christine! I so want at least one of them!!

Chamade was gorgeous when I swatched it in stores. I like that the blush line has shades that will work for medium-to-dark skin tones as well, since Chanel hasn’t always been on the ball keeping that part of the color spectrum covered. (For those who are curious, I’m fair and cool-toned, and it definitely pulled more hot coral/fuschia on me! I think the warmer you are, the more red will be pulled out!)

Agreed, Veronica! If you have naturally pinker undertones, you’ll definitely see the pinker coloring come out, especially as most of us will apply it with a sheerer application!

I’m sure you could, though Chanel didn’t tout them as a lip & cheek product, so I’m not sure whether the colors are lip-safe!

so natural and gorgeous on your skin! how do these compare in texture/wear to the MAC cream blushes or the NYX cream blushes? i’ve debated getting these but was kinda put off by the price if they are more or less similar to MAC or NYX.

Texture is totally different from both – I can’t remember NYX cream blushes much right now, but definitely not like MAC’s. These are more cream-to-powder, so they don’t stay dewy.

Hi there
I noticed you are wearing La Diva with both crème blushes. Would you recommend La Diva to be worn with Intonation or Chamade? I don’t want to look “clownish” I am medium complexion with golden undertones. I am currently leaning toward Intonation.

Hi Mari!

I would say Chamade, only because the undertones are more similar, but neither are ones I’d gravitate towards pairing with La Diva!

If you’re considering either of these, RUN to your nearest Chanel before they sell out. I’m not kidding when I say they are both amazing shades in an equally amazing formulation. I’m warm toned but could wear both as they BOTH blend out to a beautiful finish & tone. I ended up buying Intonation, along with several other products from this collection, and have been wearing it every chance I get. As Christine said, they’re very pigmented. I’ve been using a medium stiffly packed stippling brush to apply, which gives a totally flawless finish – I rarely utter that word because it’s greatly overused.

I don’t regret buying a single product in this collection, even though our prices here are higher than the US. Well worth every penny. If you’re able, purchase the eyeshadow quad & duo from this collection as well because they’re absolutely STUNNING and apply/blend/wear like a dream.

Happy to hear you’ve had such a lovely experience with these two, Sandra! This is really a memorable formula – very well done to Chanel on it.

I placed my order on Nordstrom for Chamade, Intonation, Affinite and Revelation after I saw how good they look on you, we have almost the same skintone. 🙂 I skipped Presage because it was too orange for my taste. I can’t wait to try them, haven’t seen any bad reviews about them so far.
