Guerlain Madame Rougit 4 Colours Blush from the Guerlain Voilette de Madame Collection for Fall 2013
Guerlain’s newest blush encompasses four luminous colors: raspberry, pale pink, beige, and coral, which work together to illuminate and highlight, leaving a velvety finish. Madame Rougit comes enclosed in a lacquered black box with a magnetic closure and slips into an suedette pouch with coral topstitching. I'm excited that Madame Rougit is mine. If you want her to be yours, I wouldn't waste any time in ordering her. She is a limited edition.
I applied Madame Rougit to my cheeks (sheerly) yesterday with a big, fluffy blush brush and stood in front of my mirror admiring the life in my face after a long day. The finish is glowing, but not shimmering - perfect for wearing every day. I'm smitten.
There is only one aspect of Madame Rougit that might annoy those who avoid fragranced cosmetics. The compact is very "Guerlain fragranced." Don't let that stop you from wearing Madame Rougit. The scent disappears within seconds of application.
Guerlain’s Voilette de Madame collection is available now at the Guerlain Boutique (where I purchased my new treasures) and Neiman Marcus - and perhaps Bergdorf Goodman. Those locations received it early. It will be available at select additional locations at Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, and Sephora, this month. I can't wait to show you the other pieces I purchased from the collection.
