i already have another of these 4 Éclats Blusher and am very happy with it (#7 Caresse de l'Aube, review here), but as it was a peach/bronze shade, i still wanted a rosier one of these. so i opted for #4 Rosée du Printemps since some weeks, but it always was sold out at douglas.de. now it came in again and i ordered right away. it contains 9g and costs 44.95€.
it comes in the typical Guerlain compact that looks like a melting gold nugget to me, a organic floating shape, reflective and very prone to get fingermarks. but i try keep the compacts in their velvet pouches, so they don't get too scratchy and filthy.
there is also a nice mini blush brush integrated, the natural hairs are quite soft so that i could imagine using it on the go (but in fact i never take a blush with me when i go out, and if it's for a short trip/travel, i would bring some brushes with me).
the blush smells like Violets, Guerlain's signature scent for all powder products. it's very finely milled and contains 4 colour coordinated shades:
- a light baby pink with fine white shimmers
- a shimmery cream-white
- a warm pink with gold pearl
- a matte rose
the fine white shimmer is rather a pearl glow, so it flatters your skin very much, without emphasizing large pores or looking too matte.
this shade is quite light, so i don't know if it could look chalky or greyish on dark skin tones and if it will show up at all. but for medium and light skins, it is a great subtle shade that really has a sculpting effect.

this is how it looks applied, no contour powder or anything else.
i would have liked to show you comparison swatches, but as i'm fairly new to the "light blushes"-field, i don't have blushes that look alike. or do you wish to see specific comparisons?
with this order, i also got a nail polish by Flormar as GWP (code: FLR266, your order value must be 39€+), it's the shade #412, a milk-chocolate brown with a cream finish. i compared it to Chanel Particulière and OPI Over the Taupe.
it has a thin round brush and a rather difficult consistency which makes it hard to get an even and smooth application.
