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:

I found that this gave the most beautiful and luxurious effect on the cheeks the coral color, I found it to be great on it’s own. It is super smooth and pigmented and has a silky quality as both colors have. The bottom color reminds me of NARS sin minus the sheen. It is silky smooth when applying and I simply layered it over the coral and it only made it more beautiful, not dull as i find they two combined created a really unique color. If you are of a lighter skin tone the darker color could be used as a contour for sure but for my tone it doesn’t have an impact on its own.
The Rose Aux Joues does have a pleasant fragrance of rose I love the packaging as it is super luxurious and comes inside the felt sleeve all of it branded and it has the heft and the weighted feel of a high quality high dollar cosmetic. I rate this 5 out of 5 stars.
