As you all know from my glowing review of Guerlain’s Holiday Meteorites, I’m a little obsessed with the brand. I won’t go into the extent of my Guerlain makeup collection, but suffice it to say, I have issues.
So, though I tried as hard as I could to the resist its beckon for the last couple of months, I couldn’t pass this lovely blush up when I went to Dillard’s and saw that there was ONE of these left!
Now, another blush has found its forever home on my vanity ☺️. What makes this packaging stand out from all the bronzers and shimmer products I have from this line is that gorgeous red packaging! So shiny and luxe and bold. I can’t stop looking at it! The name is even pretty: Rose Aux Joues Smile Blush Duo.
Once opened, the blush emits that familiar Guerlain sugary violet scent. I could smell that forever, my friends! It’s light, but still sweetly intoxicating, and it smells just like luxury.
The compact includes a small flat brush beside the blush duo. Each shade has a subtle, almost duo-chrome shimmery finish that makes cheeks super glowy. The left is a warm hot pink, and the right is bright and bubble-gummy, but of course they look best swirled together as a cherry blossom pink.
If you know me by now, you already know my favorite feature of this product though: the embossed ‘SMILE’ that graces the powder’s surface. I love how this friendly reminder makes me feel when I see it each time I open the compact. It literally makes me smile! And you know that’s always the best way to apply blush perfectly on the apples of your cheeks (:
