Blush Crush – Guerlain Caresse de L’Aube

June 28, 2012 at 10:57 pm | Posted in Beauty | 2 Comments

With the crazy heat, I’ve been going minimalist on my makeup so that there isn’t too much that can melt and slide off. Guerlain’s Caresse de L’Aube Blush 4 Eclat is a blush that looks very subtle on my skintone, but works wonders to highlight and sculpt at the same time.

I’ve reviewed Guerlain’s Rose Plein Vent and Soleil Couchant which are rosey and peachy/coral respectively.

Caresse de L’Aube is a blush that you can use for highlighting and sculpting which makes it a wonder multi-tasker.

Still loving the sleek mirrored casing, and still hating the inevitable fingerprints.

Two of the four shades have microshimmers which helps with the highlighting, while the the other two matte shades help with the shading.

Swatched in natural light.

Swatched in flash light.

By themselves, the shades look too light for my skintone, barely showing up during swatches. But there’s a certain translucent quality to the blush which makes it very natural and subtle. As with my other Guerlain blushes, I’ve encountered no problems layering and building up the colour. With the tan and peach shades, the overall effect is a natural sun-kissed look, which is quite in line with the current weather.

It goes on extremely smoothly, and the texture remains one of the smoothest I’ve tried. Yet another win for Guerlain!

  1. aaaa Guerlain Blush! Me like it!! It looks smooth and easy to apply. You make me want to try this one :)

    • Guerlain blushes are one of the smoothest I’ve ever tried..
      If you’re fair-skinned, this shade will look gorgeous, if you’re tanner (NC30+) like me, Soleil Couchant might be a better shade for blush =)
