Have you ever gone from feeling lukewarm about something to realizing that life without it would be pretty tough? Well, that’s my story with Chanel Rose Initiale Joues Contraste Powder Blush ($43). I’d read that it ticked all of the boxes for a good blush when I first got it, but I wasn’t in love. It just seemed so…ordinary.

It turns out, that’s the secret to its versatility!

The long-running Makeup and Beauty Blog Unsung Heroes series features much-loved permanent collection products from a variety of bodacious beauty brands.

Neutral Pink Chanel Rose Initiale is just pigmented enough to show up easily, and the blendability makes sure you never have to fear going too far with it! The tiny shimmer in there looks like a satiny sheen on the cheeks, which gives it a natural finish and keeps it from looking dull.

While Rose Initiale might look like any other pink, it works with absolutely everything! It’s magical! When I can’t decide which blush to wear, I go for Rose Initiale. When I want to take face shots for five different lipsticks in one go, I reach for Rose Initiale. From berry to wine, from nude to red, I have yet to find one single lipstick Rose Initiale doesn’t work well with.

For a blush that works when nothing else will, check out Chanel Rose Initiale Joues Contraste when you have the chance. It might not stand out at first blush, but you’ll be coming back for more!

    You’re right. I’ve definitely looked at this blush without thinking twice about it…but never picked it up! But from your description, this is a magical blush! I adore all products that can be used without thinking (or even a mirror) and it turning out perfectly!

    Oh very nice. I always wanted to try channel blushes, but they are very expensive where I live. I know what to ask on my birthday. Great color for fair skin.

    Sunny, I SO agree with you!! Rose Initiale has become my total go-to blush as well since it came out. I love how neutral it is and I reach for it as well whenever I am undecided! I can never overdo it (I’m pretty pale in the winter). Thanks for singing its praises! :)

    My Chanel lady that I work with raves about this blush.

    If only I didn’t own too many blushes as it is…
