Hello my dearest readers
Last week I went overseas and hauled in DFS Changi. If you are following me on instagram (@memoiselle), you’ll know that I bought few items including this Guerlain blush duo. The picture below is taken from my instagram account.
Now onto the review of this blush.
I bought this blush at $56. I believe this is sold at $70 at department stores in Singapore. I saw few colors at the counter but I am a pink blush lover so I immediately grabbed this one.
The packaging is made of metal casing which is heavy. I love heavy packaging and this casing looks very elegant and expensive. There’s a Guerlain logo embossed at the bottom of the casing. The casing is very prone to finger prints and therefore it was really difficult for me to get a nice picture of the casing.
This blush comes with two shades of blush that can be worn separately or blended together. The top shade is a very pigmented pink with slight shimmer. The shimmer is minimal so this is very shimmer friendly to those who don’t like shimmer blush. The bottom shade is a pale matte pink. I believe this matte pink is meant to complement the very bright pink shade on the top. However I think this shade can also be used alone when I want a very natural pale looking pink on my cheek.
This blush is VERY pigmented. So I need to be careful when swiping my brush to this blush pan. The two colors were blended together as seen in the last swatch picture. I purposely swatch a heavy amount of blush (3 swipes) so that you can see the color. But in real life, 1 swipe is enough to get a pigmented look.
Sadly, the texture is not something that I would expect from a Guerlain blush. The texture is hard and not as buttery as I want it to be. There’s a slight fallouts which I dislike. Also, it’s hard to blend the color nicely.
The packaging of this blush is very pretty. The texture is somewhat disappointing; it’s not soft and doesn’t blend very well. However since I bought this at the DFS ($56) I guess this is still value for money considering I got two blush color. But if I would have to pay $70 for this, I definitely won’t. The pigmentation does not disappoint but I guess the texture quality needs to be improved.
