Chanel Rouge is a slightly cool-toned, very dark red with a luminous finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $45.00 and contains 0.17 oz.
Chanel Rouge Joues Contraste / Blush ($43.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a darkened scarlet red with a satin sheen. It's very, very intense. You'll need a light hand with this particular blush, because it is easy to go overboard. When you use a light hand, though, it does tone down to more of a medium-dark pink--it doesn't look red--which looks like a soft flush.
