For fall, Guerlain has revamped their powder blush formula, and the new formula is supposed to create a “veil of ultralight texture that’s buildable and easy to apply for a subtle wash of color.” There are six shades available, and this is other of two shades that I received to test (I reviewed Morning Rose yesterday). It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff, so it seemed true-to-description with some buildable coverage, but it was a “wash of color” in one layer. The texture was soft, smooth, and a little dusty, but it sat well on the skin and didn’t look dry. It’s not overtly shimmery, and I’m unable to detect any particles of shimmer, just a delicate sheen. On me, the color wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably around the edges. The only thing to keep in mind is that this is designed to be sheerer and buildable, so if you prefer one-pass opacity, this may not be the right formula for your preferences.

Love this shade. And I don’t think I have anything quite like it in my collection. Don’t have many corals really. Very tempting…

It’s okay. But, I am not seeing anything to special enough that makes me want to plop down $56 for it! Plus, I’m overflowing in blush at the moment. I’m passing. Thank you for the honest review as always.

My pleasure, Nicole! I feel like Guerlain should knock it out of the park with their blush formula, but I just haven’t loved this and the last iteration.

Hey Christine, sorry for a second comment on this post. I was trying to find your review Tom Ford’s Cocoa Mirage quad. I can’t seem to pull it. Have you reviewed that?

Well, this one shows an improvement in its intensity compared to the one from yesterday! And it has a lovely glow to it, too. But….so dupable that it’s just not funny. So me thinks I’ll be looking into a $20 something, or heck, maybe one $6-8 for this type of shade!

I’m so excited for Fall collections! This blush looks nice. I’m liking the wash of sheer color. I feel like it looks more natural with the skin peeking through. Stacie xo

normally,I love buildable brushes more than pigmented brushes but with this price point somehow I expected them to be more beautiful than just a normal pink coral brush.I really wish them to have a sheen of gold pearl like they said tho!
