Blushing for the camera with Chanel Le Blush Creme de Chanel Cream Blush in Destiny on my cheeks

KAREN: Oh great, all-seeing Magic 8-Ball, may I ask you a question?

MAGIC 8-BALL: Yes, definitely.


KAREN: Can you see my destiny?

MAGIC 8-BALL: You may rely on it.

KAREN: Do you see a new fantastic everyday cream blush in my future? Something that I can just blend with my fingers or any old brush I have on hand, and it’ll last at least six hours, maybe eight?

MAGIC 8-BALL: As I see it, yes.

KAREN: Is it from the new Chanel Le Brush Creme de Chanel line that launched with the Fall 2013 Superstition collection?

MAGIC 8-BALL: Without a doubt.

KAREN: If I were to wear it, might a stranger confuse me with an applicant for clown college? In other words, would my cheeks look like Bozo’s or Ronald McD’s?

MAGIC 8-BALL: Very doubtful.

KAREN: Will it look flawless and natural on bare skin or atop foundation and power?

MAGIC 8-BALL: It is certain.

KAREN: Do you foresee this blush highlighting my pores or emphasizing their size?

MAGIC 8-BALL: Don’t count on it.

KAREN: Interesting… Would you say that it’s similar to the satiny, silky, long-wearing cream blush I’ve been obsessed with for a year, By Terry’s Ginger Glaze?

MAGIC 8-BALL: Signs point to yes.

KAREN: Is it Chanel’s golden beige blush creme in Destiny?

MAGIC 8-BALL: It is decidedly so.

KAREN: SWEET! So…will I be wearing Destiny when I finally win the lottery?

MAGIC 8-BALL: Better not tell you now.

What should you know about Chanel Le Blush Creme de Chanel in Destiny?

  • It’s a $38 matte golden beige cream blush that dries to a powder finish.
  • It’s one of six cream blushes released for fall in the brand-spankin’ new Le Blush Creme de Chanel Cream Blush Line.
  • Its silky smooth, satiny formula blends easily on bare skin, foundation and/or powder
  • It lasts 6-8 hours on my dry cheeks, but if you’re extremely oily, you may need an additional primer or powder blush to set it and get that kind of wear time.
  • It’s been easy to apply with a variety of brushes (natural and synthetic), and even fingers. It does fine with ’em all.
  • It’s super easy to use, and effortlessly layers and blends, making it a great option for beginners and plain ol’ lazybones makeup lovers like myself.
  • It’s a perfect color for the workplace, casual dates, pretty much any time you want a natural cheek look.

PRICE: $38
AVAILABILITY: New, and part of the Chanel permanent collection available now online and at Chanel counters
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A- (it’s pricey, and you may need extra layers if you have oily skin)

And just like that — POOF! There goes Monday

I hope yours was fab. Tonight I plan to do a ton of laundry (it never ends) and watch more House of Cards on Netflix.

Oh, and I keep meaning to talk to you about Orange Is the New Black. WHAT THE WHAT!? That’s all I have to say about that finale.

I love that show… It’s got so many good lines!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    I Want this ! Love this blush ! I got a Chanel Lipstick in similar shade 🙂

  5. ChicLapin says:

    That shade looks amazing on your golden skin! I would love a deep berry one.
    But yeah, I agree on the high price tag. Maybe it can be used on the lips too?( that would kinda justify the price for me!)

  6. Sunny says:

    I quickly swatched some shades on my last day in Taipei (still 2 weeks to go till they hit the stores here in Belgium) and I honestly can’t make up my mind about which one(s) I want the most! I was initially very attracted to Presage, but it seemed really intense when I swatched it, so I might go for something like Destiny instead!

  7. Yonca says:

    Hi Karen, you look gorgeous! Your eye make up is so brilliant.
    Would you mind telling me which eyeshadows you have used?

  8. Agata says:

    Oh Karen, you are so creative! I love this post, your writing is just excellent. My husband has one of those Magic 8 Balls 🙂 And, as always, you look gorgeous! The blush looks beautiful although if I do pick up one, I will go for one of the pink ones I think.

  9. Kim says:

    That is one great looking nude blush! I need a bit more color (so as not to look like the walking dead) but it looks fab on you!

    I haven’t had a chance to hit Orange yet but watched Top of the Lake over the weekend. You know how you love a character from a movie or TV and then you see the actor in something else, where he is completely different, and you absolutely hate that character because he’s nothing like the one you love? No? That’s just me? Well, then I’ll just say that Al Parker is no Faramir. Though David Wenham’s acting is terrific, as always. 🙂

  10. Charisma says:

    I purchased Presage and I love it! I might give fantastic a chance when I get paid Friday. I’m not usually into cream blushes especially when it’s summer, hot and humid days, but boy, these lil mongrels just flipped my mind. They are definitely worth your $38.

  16. Denise S. says:

    I like these blushes a lot. I would get a deeper toned one like the Fantastic or Presage.But alas I own way too many blushes.

  17. Tara says:

    You are too funny! I love the look of this blush too.

  18. Great shade! Reminds me of MAC Harmony!
