This Coral Fiend Can’t Say No to Guerlain Madame Rougit 4-Colours Blush

Guerlain Madame Rougit brush

One of the most coveted items in the Guerlain Voilette de Madame Collection has to be Madame Rougit 4-Colours Blush. Guerlain has done similar blushes before, and they were major hits (think Blush G). Madame Rougit takes the beautiful pattern to a different level with something that is inspired by a dotted Swiss veil. The pattern wears off fast, but I really can’t say I regret ruining it because the blush is such a delight!

Guerlain Madame Rougit pouch

Madame Rougit (8 grams/0.28 oz. RRP in Belgium: 58,45 euros) comes in a soft velvety pouch with a pink trim.

The compact is a glossy black.

Just so you know, the silver dots do not last. In fact, the overspray disappeared as soon as I laid my finger on them. From the upper right corner, Madame Rougit contains a shimmery peachy pink stripe, a coral, a light pinky beige, and a cool-toned pink. Out of the four, only the matte coral seems pigmented when it is swatched. In my quick overview, I said it’s not very practical to want to even use the blush as two. Some readers told me it is possible in the comments, and I tried: they are right! You can concentrate a smaller brush more to the upper right half to make it more coral, or the bottom left half to make it more pink. Very personally however, I prefer to swirl my brush across all the shades and use it as one. It has way more dimension that way!

Here I swatched the peachy pink, the coral, the cool-toned pink, and everything together (the pinky beige stripe is so thin only an eyeshadow brush can pick it up separately):

I was surprised to find out while some stripes don’t swatch well, a brush can very easily pick the colors up. The cool-toned pink for example, shows up easily and well on the cheeks with a light swipe of the brush. In my experience, this happens sometimes with Guerlain powders. Some of them seem hard and low on pigment when you swatch them, but they mostly perform really well with a brush!

Guerlain Madame Rougit brush compartment

Madame Rougit comes with a pink brush in the bottom compartment. The hair isn’t very soft, so I would only use it for touch-ups. However, the blush wears so exceptionally well that I doubt very much I’ll ever need it!

Madame Rougit is a very pigmented blush. It does blend out easily enough, but you could get overboard if you use a heavy hand. It looks mostly matte on, but definitely not the dry and powdery-looking type of matte. Instead, it looks nice and smooth. Much like my experience with Guerlain Peach Boy, Madame Rougit wears incredibly well. I can hardly spot much fading at the end of the day!

Bottom line: I think the title says it all! This coral fiend can’t say no to Guerlain‘s beautiful Madame Rougit 4-Colours Blush. Just remember: it performs better than it swatches, so don’t let how it swatches scare you off! Madame Rougit has great pigmentation, depth, blendability, and lasting power. You can also somehow customize the shade!

OK, I’m still thinking about the new Rouge G‘s. How about you? Is there anything from Voilette de Madame that you’re eyeing?

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Yay you love it too! It looks wonderful on you and on everybody I’ve seen review it! I’m happy I got it! I didn’t look too hard at the Rouge Gs-I kind of grabbed my blush and RAN AWAY hahaha!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      LOL you did the smart thing! I swatched the Rouge G’s the other day, and walking away afterwards wasn’t easy (though I’m sure I’ll go back haha)!

  • Lily

    Ah, very lovely. I love the whole look you did here :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Lily!

  • Ice Pandora

    Looks good on you c: very subtle!
    Why they add those pointless dots anyway?
    Oh well. Xx

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey girly, well it’s a design thing I suppose 😉 I’m personally glad that the dots wore off fast. Not too sure if I’d be happy to have to try to get rid of the overspray!

  • Isabelle

    Glad to see you love it too. You’re not alone! Love the look you did :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Isabelle! This blush makes me happy!

  • Sara_BeauTime

    As all the other corals, this coral looks stunning on you!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha, thanks, Sara! I’m glad coral is very much there this autumn. I’m definitely not ready to say goodbye to all my corals!

  • Redhotjillypeppers

    It’s sooo prettaaaaay ! :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It really is! It performs better than it swatches!

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Well, it’s coral so I assume you are not surprised when I say I LOVE IT! :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha nope not at all!

  • Christa

    Love it! Looks gorgeous on you. It will be hard for me to miss out on this for sure!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Christa! I love the depth and lasting power. I end up using Guerlain blushes a lot because they hold up superbly well!

  • Liz

    It looks great on you! My need to hoard all blush is finally on the wane, thank goodness. But this is a great pick-up for sure!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha yeah I get why you’re relieved 😉

  • ValleyDoll

    This blush is right up my alley !

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I already saw the collection in store! You should check it out!

  • Larie

    It looks really lovely on you, you coral fiend :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha, thanks Larie!

  • Icaria

    Love it on you! So true about the way it swatches, reminds me a little of Terracotta. With a soft brush you get all the subtlety of it. Can you tell I’m glad I splurged? After all, I needed something smashing to “replace” Coral Glow! :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Helene, yaaay I’m glad you’re so into it! I still use Coral Glow very often! When I think I want a bit of bronzer I just reach for it!

  • Haute Inhabit

    Looks good on! I still have yet to buy a pink blush. I end up using my bronzer.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey girly, I’m not big on pink, but a pink blush goes a LONG way! You should own one!

  • MyLuciteDreams

    Wow,this is such a beauty. The pattern and packaging is just so amazing but I even love it on so much more. I do wish the pattern would last forever, but totally a color worth diving into!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Taylor, I bet this will look very lovely on you!

  • Catherine

    Very, very pretty! I can’t justify another peachy pink blush, but this is lovely

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Catherine, same here really, but Guerlain blushes just last so well and that’s why I reach for them often! I am beginning to dislike having my blush fade on me. I suddenly start looking ill :p

  • Krystle Kouture

    I’ve been seeing this everywhere. The design is so gorgeous. I favor matte blushes because of my skin texture so I might have to cave and get this!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Krystle, I prefer matte or at least matte-looking blushes too! I can deal with shimmer that looks like a sheen on the cheeks, but I’m uncomfortable with anything more than that!

  • VickyM

    Very beautiful, both in packaging as in the actual color :) , gorgeous really, hopefully I will find some leftover makeup budget to buy this lovely blush.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Vicky, good luck with that! I wouldn’t say the shade is impossible to dupe, but it does have this lovely depth that you don’t see every day!

  • Dominique33

    I purchased it ( not too pricey here since I paid 50,50 € only :) it was supposed to be 55-58 € just as in Belgium ) but I haven’t tried it yet ! It’s so beautiful, maybe I should think of a backup ? I don’t know but it’s really pretty and the scent of violet is so delicate. I love it, a must-have for Fall in my opinion.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Wheee I’m glad to hear that! It’s a big blush though. I’m not sure you’ll ever use it up!

  • Cassandrapamela

    OMG the more I see review about this blush, the more I want to run to the nearest Guerlain counter and get it T.T
    you look pretty with the blush, Sunny! the color suits your complexion ^^

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Pamela! If you do swatch/get it, I’d like to know what you think!

  • Whitney

    i really like the pinkness of the brush itself! I would seriously buy a pink makeup brushes if I see them around D:
    The colour of the blush is soo pretty! Also, what eyeshadow are you using?

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Whitney, you’re funny 😉 I think bdellium makes a line of pink brushes if you’re interested :)

      I’m wearing Chanel Mystere over Benefit Birthday Suit in the pic, but really. Any grayish quad would work!
