Guerlain has done it again. This Fall, the brand launched a series of lip glosses, lipsticks, eyeshadow duos, eye pencils, meteorites, nail polishes and this blush. I couldn’t pass on this Guerlain Madame Rougit 4 Colours Blush, it’s beautiful.
This limited edition blush retails at S$83 for 8g of product, made in Italy. It’s available island-wide, grab before the stock vanishes.
In this post, I will show you (many) pictures of this beauty, swatches on both arm and face!! And share some thoughts about it. Hope you enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think.
Guerlain Madame Rougit 4 Colours Blush is housed in a double-decked, black polished compact with a mirror — just like their Blush G, Parure de Nuit, Terracotta la Sélection de L’été, Guerlain la Sélection Couleurs and the like.
Each season, the blush comes with a different coloured brush — this time, in coral.
Like the product name suggests, this blush is made up of 4 colours; on the somewhat perforated surface with Guerlain’s double “G” logo engraved in the center and pearly white dots sprinkled diagonally across. This blush smells good too.
The pearly white dots are over-spray and fades within one to two uses.
The 4 colours; magenta pink, baby pink, coral pink and tan are of varies intensity and finishes — which I find very interesting. The shades are also portioned in such a way that the coral pink takes center stage.
I may never be that good and accurate with describing colours but what appears to be orangy on pan translates coral pink on my arm so coral pink I shall name it.
Swatches above taken under artificial day light, with no flash — on dry arm.
I couldn’t get the baby pink to show up and the tan shade seems barely there in the first photo. If you look at the second picture, you may be able to see the iridescent sheen peeking through and some shimmery reflects.
When all the shades are blended together, this blush is supposed to illuminate and highlight with a velvety finish.
Although two of the lighter shades appears to be very sheer, when swirled together, this blush is actually very pigmented. I believe the two lighter shades are included as accent shades to provide the lovely sheen and illuminating properties.

On my skin tone, the mixture seems a little warm and I love it. I love it as a contouring blush along my cheek bones (pictured above). The finish itself provides a soft sheen — highlighters are not necessary unless you are up for a more dramatic look.
Shade wise, I don’t think it’s as unique as I would like — you can probably mix a few blushers together for a similar result but overall, texture of this blush is smooth, soft and finely milled. Intensity can be adjusted and buildable; this blush is also very easy to blend.
Nothing but love.
Thank you for reading.
