Chantecaille Happy Cheek Gelée

Chantecaille Happy Cheek Gelée ($39) was introduced in stores with the Holiday 2015 Collection. Online at Chantecaille, it was available earlier. My product specialist was stunned that I had it before the collection was introduced at Neiman Marcus. I feel sorry for store representatives when their new products aren't so new to online shoppers. However, I have no regrets for purchasing Happy the moment it was offered.

Cheek Gelée is a hydrating gel-cream blush that combines the freshness of an emulsion with the lasting power of a stain. Sheer yet vibrant pigments add instant color and luminosity for a radiant, youthful glow.  Happy is described by Chantecaille as a soft rose petal pink that creates a youthful, windswept glow. That's pretty accurate, but they failed to mention the beautiful sheen that it imparts.


I love this color. It's pink, but not a blue pink that might make you look ghastly in the winter. It is long-wearing, although the sheen fades over time. It will brighten your face, but not compete with your gorgeous eyes wearing winter colors.

You can purchase Happy at Neiman Marcus, where shipping is free. Jeannine Barnes at (202) 966-9700, extension 2289, would be happy to help you. You can also find it at some Nordstrom sites, and, of course, you can purchase it directly from Chantecaille's Web site.

This is stunning, I believe I need it!
CG, have you tried the Chantecaille Liquid Lumieres? You would look amazing in the cheek shade Luster, and the highlight shades Brilliance and Sheen would both be divine on you! If you don't already have them, I highly recommend checking them out...I've fallen completely in love!

Isn't Happy just the prettiest color you've ever seen? I bought it for winter wear because I like a more delicate cheek with the deeper eye shades and berry lips that I favor during winter's blustery months. The softest hint of color with a bit of sheen is all I need or want. It's a lovely option for anyone who wants to avoid powders during the dryer season of the year.

How in the world did I miss that post?? They are absolutely fabulous...I have almost finished a tube of Brilliance, that never happens!
By the way, I meant to tell you, it's so wonderful to see you posting again! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and a fruitful new year full of blessings!
