Guerlain Pink Punk Blush Duo
Guerlain Pink Punk Blush Duo

A Duo Featuring Coral and Plum

Guerlain Pink Punk Blush Duo ($50.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains a vibrant coral-pink with a mostly matte finish and subdued plum with a mostly matte finish.

If you have a cooler complexion with natural pink undertones, I suspect the brighter pink shade will look pinker, not quite as coral-like, on you. It looked pinker in the pan but on my skin, it was less so. Burberry Blossom is more orange. MAC Fleet Fast is similar but more subdued, plus it has gold shimmer. Tom Ford Flush is very comparable in color. Tarte Blissful is also very similar–perhaps a bit pinker (even on my skin tone). This shade was very, very pigmented. It has a dry but finely-milled texture that is best when used with a brush. I used the included brush to apply, and while I can’t say I prefer it to my full-sized brushes (I am partial to both the shapes and the longer handles!), it is soft and works well to apply and blend out the color. When I trialed for wear, it lasted eight hours without fading.

The plum shade seemed sheer when I swatched it, but with a blush brush (the one included), it was more pigmented than it seemed initially. It is not nearly as intense as the brighter coral shade, though. MAC The Perfect Cheek is more subdued, pinker, less warm-toned. Tarte Exposed is more neutral. Burberry Cameo is less pink, more plum. Chanel Rose Temptation is a touch darker and more plum. It had the same finely-milled, dry texture that wore well (eight hours).

Finally, when the two shades are mixed, it becomes a rosy plum with a matte finish. It ended up looking very similar to NARS Amour. NARS Deep Throat is pinker, lighter, and has a golden sheen.  I wore the two shades layered together, and they lasted a full eight hours without any signs of fading.  If you’re a fan of Guerlain’s matte eyeshadows, you’ll like the texture and feel of the blushes, as they’re very similar.  If you prefer a softer, denser, more buttery texture, you may find these too dry/firm for your liking.

    Very pretty blushes and very much my sorts of shades but (understandably) I have so many blushes close to these shades that at 50 bucks (closer to 60 here, I’m guessing), there is no need for me to lash out on this one.

  2. You’re absolutely right- it does look more coral on you. On me, it’s definitely a pink shade. This was the first of the new blushes that I grabbed and I’m thrilled with it. Like you, I thought the plum shade was a little anemic when I swatched it, but it’s lovely on application.

    I think it is called ” Chic Pink ” here, pretty blush not so light as it seems. I have only one Guerlain duo blush and I love it ! The combination of coulours is good ( we have 6 duo blushes here so far I know ). Subtle and the violet perfume is delicate.

    So sorry, it is called Pink Punk here but I have Chic Pink ! Anyway, pretty colours and beautiful blush delicately perfumed !

    Hi Christine. Everything you wear looks great on you, even funky colors!! You are a doll!
    P.S. Love your earrings! Where can I get them????

  6. baby in a corner

    I don’t know why but none of these new Guerlain grabbed me. maybe because they were similar enough to colours i had.

  7. The shade in the first set of photos looks particularly lovely on you!

    I really like the colors but I’m used to Burberry’s soft, buttery texture so I’m not sure I’d like the texture of this. But it is really pretty…

    Christine, how does this matte finish compare to MAC’s Satin (finish/texture) blushes? Also, what foundation do you have on in these photos? Amazing! =D

  10. Hi Christine, just wanted to say the blush is so lovely on you. Its like your literally blushing… Just a quick question, I have combination skin and my cheeks are well, kinda oily, and I am NC45 .Do you think this blush will work for me? Or can you or anyone out there tell me, which colour family I should lean towards for a blush? Sorry for asking such a silly Question, but its my first time buying a blush and I want a great experience.

  11. Oh Goody, you posted another blush duo…waited soooooooooooooo long. I recalled you either bought two or three of these. DO you have another one to review? I bought one of these six.
