Review: Guerlain Rose Aux Joues ~ 03 Over Rose

GUERLAIN 
I recently acquired this Guerlain Rose Aux Joues from http://www.sephora.com.  I  have been stalking them for quite some time now and finally shelled out the bucks to get it as a Sephora VIB sale came around.  The site describes it in the following:
“What it is:
A blush duo that allows you to shade, color, and sculpt.

What it does:
Shade, color, and sculpt with Rose Aux Joues, a must-have for all women who are eager to have fun with color. Guerlain’s eye-popping blush duo offers vibrant color pairings that allow you to re-invent your beauty routine every day. One vibrant shade adds a pop of color to the cheekbones while its smaller counterpart can be mixed or used for a striking contrast”

Ingredients:
Talc, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Nylon-12, Magnesium Stearate, Aluminum Hydroxide, Phenyl trimethicone, Polysorbate 60, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, sorbitan Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Pentylene Glycol, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Lauroyllysine, Parfum (Fragrance), Tin Oxide, Caprylyl Glycol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Benzoate, Linalool, Benzyl Alcohol, Limonene, BHT, Amyl Cinnamal, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Ceraniol [+/- MICA, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (Iron Oxides) CI 15850 (Red 6, Red 6 Lake, Red 7, Red 7 Lake), CI 15985 (Yellow 6 Lake), CI 19140 (Yellow 5 Lake), CI 42090 (Blue 1 Lake), CI 73360 (Red 30 Lake), CI 77007 (Ultramarines), CI 77163 (Bismuth Oxychloride), CI 77288 (Chromium Oxide Greens), CI 77289 (Chromium Hydroxide Green), CI 77510 (Ferric Ferrocyanide), CI 77742 (Manganese Violet), CI 45410 (red 27). 
 Now this one for me from my Guerlain haul was the least impressive as I wouldn’t reccommend this to a lady who loves a super pigmented blush. As for my skin tone, I  really had to layer it up to get the color payoff that I seek in a blushI found the rose color to be way more pigmented than the other color in the duo.  It is smooth and silky as the quality is top notch on these as far as texture and feel. The top color does possess a slight sheen which I appreciate 😉 The lower color had absolutely no color payoff for me but as far as the texture of it, it is smooth and silky so I layer it over the top color and it works.
