Week 2, Day 6. DC'd and LE Blush--Chanel Evening Red JC

Today's blush is an oldie, but goodie.  It is Evening Red (or Rouge Noir for all you Francophiles) from Chanel.  I don't really know anything about this blush, except that I think it has been DC'd for quite some time (like maybe 10 years or more?).  It is a gorgeous red blush, the only one I have. 

It goes on smoothly, with just a hint of the famed Chanel fragrance.  Evening Red is a pretty neutral red, maybe leaning a little to the blue side.  These old JCs are so nice--really pigmented and beautiful. 

Even though I think that reds aren't really my thing, this blush can be applied lightly for a lovely flush.  Maybe someday I'll have the guts to try it. LOL!
Tomorrow, is the last day of DC'd and LE Blush Week and I'm finishing with Shu P Purple 05b, a unique blush that is one of my faves.


  1. Lady, are you telling me you've never worn this one ON YOUR FACE?!

  2. lol, is that what it's for? If you only new how many I've never worn =(

  3. It's been discontinued so long! I wish it was still around, I adore red blushes! They're so few and far between these days, but when used correctly, they are the most natural-looking and stunning of all!

  4. I love this shade! However, it should be noted that the French title on the label is actually "Rouge de Nuit," not "Rouge Noir." ("Rouge Noir" is the alternate shade name for the "Vamp" JC.)

  5. PS: I love your blog! Any idea on how old the gold label series is, or when they switched to the black labels? I was thinking maybe late-80s through the mid to late 90s, but I'm sure you'd have a better idea! (I have a few in the rectangular compacts, which I'm thinking are early 80s? Any insight would be very much appreciated!!)
