I love Malice. It's a highly pigmented pinky-coral shade. I have to apply it carefully because of its high pigmentation, but I like that quality because a little goes a long way. By contrast, I sometimes have to build up layers of other blushes to get the color deposit that I want---and risk looking overly made up.
I think it's a color that straddles the cool / warm divide. It's a neutral, that I think can work for many complexion types. I often pair it with Revlon's Crystal Cut Coral lipstick, which is a corally-pink. For make up mixers---I think this would work so well mixed with other blushes---just a swipe of this to make other blushes pop.
Would definitely repurchase despite the price.

Malice Joues Contraste #71 is an excellent blush, and one of the more "bold" shades that Chanel makes. It's a shimmery warm coral blush that leans pink. It does contain glitter bits. The fact that this blush has both warm and cool tones in it makes it very versatile. Because of the pigment in this blush, you can build the color to your satisfaction. I like to use this with the Chanel Presage cream blush underneath to intensify the color and make it last longer. As always, this comes in the signatures black Chanel case embossed with the CC logo and a velvet pouch is included. Supposedly, the tiny blush brush included is the same quality as Chanel's regular brush line, but it's too small to be of good use, so I took off one lippie for that. The blush is also scented with roses and lasts quite a long time, as I've had this blush for over a year now. At $45, the Chanel JC blushes are pricey, but well worth it if you love luxury items. A great bright corally summer color. I'd buy it again if I ever lost it or ran out.

A warm, flattering peachy coral color. I have tons of blushes near this shade, but this one stands out, due to the great pigmentation. I reach for it all the time. It also lasts longer than most blushes do on me. A bit expensive, but lasts and is worth the cost in my opinion.

ahh, expensive it REALLY worth it? Does anyone come up to me on the days I am wearing this as opposed to my Mary Kay blush and tell me that they can see that my coloring is worth $45??? No. Never happened....

But there is something about picking up and fondling that gorgeous glossy compact, it opens so nicely, and closes with a beautiful little click. The soft, warm rosiness of this blush, the way it just melds into your skin - it's a treat, no doubt, to pamper yourself with products like this. Yes, there are cheaper alternatives, I have plenty of them - but spending more, buying into the glamour, it just FEELS GOOD. It's the luxury of using Chanel that I think people find the most appealing - well, I know that is it for me. And to think, there are lines that are even MORE pricey than Chanel....

I don't want to blow all my money on "brand" - and I choose carefully..just because something is pricey does not mean it is good - I have thrown away Chanel mascaras, given away foundation and skin care.. But there are a few gems in every line, and every now and then, it's fun to splurge. This blush is one of them, it really is a pleasure to use and leaves your cheeks glowing...staying power for me is the same as with most blushes, I need a touch up mid day. I would definitely buy it again, though more than likely, I will never use this up. Maybe some day when I feel like being good to myself, I will try another color.

I can only agree with all the other reviews. malice is gorgeous!!!! beautiful peachy coral that looks flattering on all skintones. I made sure to bring my fiance to Bloomingdales so he could pay for it. only con is the price but i probably will buy more. all the colors were stunning. I also love rose petale and tumulte.

The minute I looked at Malice at the Chanel counter I knew I had to own this gorgeus shade.............a mix of coral/peach with very fine gold sparkles which give Malice that perfect hint of shimmer.
Im very fair with cool tones and Malice looks amazing on me especially during the warm months where I have a tan.
I think that this became my most reached for blush this summer, I just couldn't get enough of it and I own about 25 other blushes (Nars,Mac)
Malice looks good on all skin tones, due to the color combo it's neither warm or cool in my opinion its both. Quality is supberb as with all Chanel products. This blush is what I wanted Nars Orgasm to be, Orgasm is ok in my book, but I feel like it's not as flattering on fair skin tones due to the stronger red undertones and those fat chunks of glitter kind of throw me off. Malice is a stunning blush which is a timeless color and a staple for me especially during the summer months. Chanel never disappoints me, they always in my opinion create the most flattering shades of pink, whether it's a gloss,blush or a lipstick........Chanel creates the most classic pink shades that will always be timeless and worn with confidence for the confident sophisticated Chanel girls!

A great summery color with a vivid brightness that seems to wake up my skin a bit. It's a deeper, more intense version of coral than I'm used to wearing but I like splashy colors like this in spring and summer. It looks great paired with bronzer too. It shows up as more of a pink-coral than an orange-coral on me. Whereas some of the more orange corals clash with my pale, cool toned skin, this strawberry pink undertone looks more natural. No ruddy cast or reddish tones. There's so many different versions of coral out there but what stands out for me is the texture and formula. The powder is so silky and pigmented with such a fine grain that I don't need to blend much at all for it to look beautiful. It has a faint golden shimmer that's doesn't look glittery or brassy.

Even though it's lightly fragranced I don't have any problems with irritation or sensitivity. It wears well without fading for hours and doesn't appear powdery or dry. Easily buildable for more intensity. Nice classic packaging. A tiny amount goes a long way for me so I probably wouldn't repurchase anytime that I can see, but I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a pink-coral with some sheen and brightness.

Amazing product, only problem.... pretty expensive at 46.00+USD w/taxes. However a Chanel product seems to last me forever, and the quality is on point! Malice is a beautifully pigmented peachy/coral/salmon shade with a subtle gold micro shimmer. The pigmentation is so rich, a few light brush dips on the powder dome and your cheeks will be popping with vibrant color. The brush that comes with it actually did the job nicely, after spending the time to buff it in properly. Malice is a fabulous Spring/ Summer shade. Looks very healthy and vibrant! My Chanel counter said this is LE, however I think she gave me false info as I thought I read this is perm.
