NEW from Guerlain: Quick Look at Voilette de Madame Madame Rougit & Two Spicy

Guerlain Madame Rougit 4-Colours Blush, Two Spicy Ecrin 2 Couleurs

I don’t know what it is about Guerlain, but this brand always seems to do magic! I’m having a hard time trying to decide which one of the three Rouge G‘s I want the most from the autumn collection, Voilette de Madame (available in Belgium on September 1st). While I agonize over the issue, let’s take a look at the blush, Madame Rougit and one of the new duos, Two Spicy!

Guerlain Madame Rougit brush

Like the lace detail on the Rouge G‘s from this collection, Guerlain Madame Rougit 4-Couleurs Blush (58,45 euros) has the pattern of a dotted Swiss veil. It has the typical Guerlain violet smell. Just in case you’re curious, the silver overspray disappeared as soon as I dipped my finger in the pan.

I swatched three of the stripes individually (the pinky beige stripe is so thin that I don’t reasonably see it being used on its own). The shimmery peachy pink on the upper right corner is a bit hard and not so pigmented. The coral stripe is soft, finely-milled, and pigmented. The cool-toned pink on the bottom left corner isn’t very pigmented, either.

By now, you’re probably thinking the 4 shades swirled together wouldn’t look so different from the coral stripe, but that would be wrong. I think the other stripes give the overall color more depth, and the light sheen and shimmer give the finish more dimension. With a full-size blush brush, it is impossible to pick any single shade out. I personally think it works the best as a whole!

From left to right: peachy pink, coral, cool-toned pink, and all four shades together:

Guerlain is launching 6 Ecrin 2 Couleurs (duos) with this collection (RRP: 42,50 euros). From what I can see, they are permanent. I have Two Spicy (08) to show you!

Guerlain Two Spicy

What struck me the most when I first saw the promo image is the unusual color combination. They all seem to have an interesting twist, and the textures of the two shades are very different in most cases!

Take Two Spicy for example. The lighter shade is a sparkling orangey-copper. It has the same squishy feeling of some sparkling shades I’ve seen from Dior. Much to my amazement, it’s actually pretty pigmented! The darker shade is a dark brown with a murky olive undertone. You know how Guerlain powders tend to be a bit harder in texture? It’s not the case here! This shade has fabulous texture and color payoff!

The duo comes with a leaflet and three placement suggestions. Some workable (layering) and other not so much (highlighting my brow bone with the lighter shade? I don’t think so!). Again, I promise to do a look soon and keep you posted!

Have you seen Guerlain Voilette de Madame? If so, what did you pick up? If not, what are the pieces that are calling your name?

Mostly Sunny disclosure

  • BeautyLoves

    I love the blush! I filmed a get ready with me yesterday (will not be up for a few weeks, though) and used the darkest blush first, then swirled my brush into the rest. You can pull it off, but you need to use a smaller brush, like a MAC 168, instead of a ‘normal’ blush brush.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Agree! I can do the same thing with my NARS Yachiyo and actually really change the look of it!

      • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

        OOO thanks, ladies! Now I need a new blush brush LOL

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    I love my blush! I love that it’s mostly matte! Most Guerlain special blushes are so shimmery, so that’s why I really wanted this one! I love it!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Tracy, between a very matte blush and a very shimmery one I’d definitely go for the matte as well! I’d love to see this on you!

  • Caise

    oh this blush is amazing:-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Is it calling your name now? LOL

  • Kiss & Make-up

    The texture of Two Spicy looks so interesting. I like the colors! And that blush looks gorgeous, not to mention the cute pink brush.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Melissa, I bet you’ll rock Two Spicy!

  • beauties

    two spicy looks great :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It is! I’d love to see the rest of the duos!

  • Beauty Box

    I love that blush palette – have been seeing in blogs recently. I didn’t think Two Spicy would be something I would like in the pan but your swatches are gorgeous. Those colours are very me…

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Yu Ming! You should swatch them when you get the chance! I wasn’t too impressed when I saw Two Spicy, but after swatching it I got converted!

  • peggy timmermans

    We’ve got exactly the same products, i like the combo in the duo palette and for me ot’s not unusual, seen something similar in last winters collection in the quattro. Love it!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Peggy, ooo I know what you mean! Still, the difference in the textures is not something I see all the time 😉

  • Icaria

    Madame Rougit!!! I’m not blushing at the moment, I’m turning green with envy! I can’t wait to see it in person. :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Helene, keep me posted about what you think! I thought it’s already available in North America because everybody seems to get autumn collections faster than us!

      • Icaria

        I haven’t been downtown yet, going tomorrow & yes, I’ll keep you posted! :)

  • Teri

    That blush is so amazingly pretty! I’m very curious about the duo too tho, it sounds great!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It’s definitely not what I was worried it’d be! I was thinking about a sheer, glittery mess. This is everything but!

  • Larie

    They’re both pretty, but they’re not calling to me, haha. *clutches wallet fiercely*

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Yay for you, Larie! I’ll at least get a Rouge G. At least…

  • Liz

    Looking at the blush swatches, I can totally live without it. It’s a beauty though!

    And I like that Guerlain has shadow duos now. I get so overwhelmed by big palettes sometimes, lol.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Liz, it’s great news for your wallet! I know what you mean by getting overwhelmed by big palettes as well. Basically 6 is as far as I can go without feeling frustrated most of the time LOL

  • LifeOfBun

    Oh wauw. Polkadots on make-up… yes please. :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Anouchka, the silver overspray disappears as soon as I laid my finger on it, so don’t count on the dots to stay! I have totally made a mess of the pattern, but it’s such a pretty blush on the cheeks I really can’t say I regret it!

  • Marijke

    oh, that blush!! WAUW! :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I knowwww!!!

  • Sofia

    Highlighting the brown bone with that? hehehe… Even if I wouldn’t use it for that it looks gorgeous anyhow.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sofia, I think it’ll pretty much only work if you’re on the runway LOL

  • Dominique33

    I’ll pick up Madame Rougit^^ ( what a name ! ), it’s classy and very pretty on the whole I think. I’ll pass on all duos though.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Dominique, I hope you’ll like Madame Rougit! The duos are all pretty bold and interesting, but I can see them not being everyone’s cup of tea!

      • Dominique33

        Madame Rougit is so elegant ( even if dupable ), the duos look pretty but I need the Dior quints and possibly other eyeshadow palettes ( I purchased 3 Kiko ones from the Fall collection today, it’s cheap 16,90 € each but very good ) !

  • Fee_DP

    Seems like I’m the only person that doesn’t get the fuss about these Guerlain things, I like their bronzer and highlighter but that sums it all up! Oh well… (: x

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey girl, have you tried Guerlain lipsticks? Rouge Automatique was the first lipstick formula that I truly fell in love with!

      • Fee_DP

        No, I haven’t, might give them a try now!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    I want desperately to pick up the blush but looking at my stash and the 2 Chanel blushes coming my way I’m not sure I should. I definitely want another Guerlain lipstick. I love the look of Two Spicy, such a pretty combo. I’m dying to look at the purple gold duo.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha this season has so many pretty blushes! It’s hard to make a decision!

      I have to swatch the Rouge G’s before I can make up my mind. I’m leaning towards Madame Batifole because it’s a shade that I don’t have a lot of, but Madame Flirte is so gorgeous as well!

  • MyLuciteDreams

    That blush is a stunner and so VERY you, I can’t wait to see it. This shadow duo was the one I have been ogling. It looks gorgeous

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Taylor, I actually didn’t expect to like the duo, but I am so blown away after swatching it! You’ve got to dip your finger in it to know what I’m talking about!

  • Chris El

    Can’t wait to see your FOTD with this!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Chris, I’ll work on it ASAP!

  • rachlovespenguins

    I had a very childish grabby-hands moment when I saw these photos, hahaha. I can pass on the blush (though it is gorgeous!) but I’m not sure I can avoid eyeshadow’s siren song. Must see the purple/gold one as well, before I make any decisions.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha you’re funny! I’m eyeing the purple/gold one as well! It has so much drama!

  • Catherine

    Oh wow I love the shimmery coppery shade. And I like all four shades of the blush together best

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Catherine, same here! The smaller stripes might not be very pigmented on their own, swirled together they give the coral shade so much more dimension!

  • Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    WOW. Seriously, WOW. At first glance in the pan, the eyeshadow duo wasn’t really calling to me but after seeing the swatches, I MUST HAVE IT!!! The color combo really is unique but very flattering and I can see the silkiness of the brown and the pigmentation of that awesome sparkle shadow just from the swatches!! 😀

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Becca, SAME HERE! I pulled it out and sighed because the lighter shade looks like it won’t ever work on me, but once I swatched it I was really amazed!

  • Jenni @ lifeandlensofbeauty

    i found the blush very similar to the rouge g noire and sakura LOL i love the duo e/s though – perhaps the brow highlighting part only applicable to “two parisian” duo XD

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jenni, I don’t own and those (though Sakura looks really really light. I don’t think it’d work on me to be honest), so this is my first special Guerlain blush! I actually think even the lighter shade in Two Parisian would have to stretch REALLY far to be used as a brow bone highlight!

  • ValleyDoll

    Oooh the blush is SO me ! Love the shades !

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Eva, mark your calendar and check it out!

  • Cassandrapamela

    ooooh the blush is lovely!! the duo eyeshadow would be a cheaper alternative to the 5 and 6 ( or 7? ) palette, if we want to try Guerlain eye shadow^^
    I love Guerlain! the lingerie de peau foundation is my Holy grail!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Pamela, I actually think Two Spicy has better texture than most Guerlain eyeshadows I’ve tried! I’d love to swatch the other duos!

      I haven’t tried Lingerie de Peau, but I heard they’re launching a new matte foundation soon. Would definitely love to try that!

  • Fernanda

    Thanks so much for sharing this, I love the eyeshadow duo. I’ll definitely check it out, I love the brown colour. guerlain packaging is so amazing, so pretty! xx

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      You’re welcome, Fernanda! I’m glad you found it helpful! The brown is SO insanely rich and smooth! You’ve got to dip your finger in it to know what I’m talking about!

  • VickyM

    The blush looks lovely, I have seen some not so good reviews for it, but I truly hope it´s not as bad as some say, because it looks lovely both in packaging and color, will love to see this reviewed Sunny :) , although I´m more interested in the Rouge G.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Vicky, if you use the blush as a whole (as it is intended to), there’s nothing I can be picky about it! The look should be up in a couple of days!

  • Ruby Chua

    I am dying to check out Rouge G over the counters but am abit scare off by how red the online swatches show.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Ruby, I’ll have to swatch them before I can make up my mind! I hope I won’t walk away with two (or three lol)!

  • Memoiselle

    Hi Sunny,

    This collection is definitely worth checking out! I love the blush and the new nail polish shade. It’s so beautiful!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Meryl, I know!!! I didn’t expect to like the nail polish that much, but after seeing it swatched I might need it!

  • Lily

    I haven’t seen this collection in person yet, but so far the swatches look promising :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I can’t wait to see the rest of the collection! Need a new Rouge G or two!

  • Kristen / Glambunctious

    THAT BLUSH THOUGH!!!! I cannot stop falling in love with it every time I see it! It’s such a gorgeous piece and the actual product is a color I would totally wear! The duo eyeshadow is GORGEOUS! You know I have a thing for pinky-champagne shadows! Guerlain is a brand that knows how to deliver luxurious, beautiful products. LOVE!!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Kristen, I agree! I like how Guerlain almost always does something different and unexpected!

  • Phil

    That two spicy pallet :O ♥

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It’s surprising, no? From the colors to the textures!

  • Tiffany

    THAT BLUSH. So beautiful! I’m not sure I’d ever be able to bring myself to use it though. It would need it’s own frame 😉

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Tiffany, well I’ve learnt to take photos, take a deep breath, and just dip my fingers in. It always makes me happier to use something than to just look at it LOL

  • Krystle Kouture

    What a stunning blush! Guerlain always has the prettiest patterns, but this was is so unique!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Krystle, I agree! Apparently the idea comes from a Swiss veil (didn’t know what it is till I looked at the promo image). It does wear off very easily though, but the blush is so good I can’t say I regret dipping my brush in!
