It was love at first sight: Guerlain Blush G

Hi Ladies,

I feel totally guilty here.

Yes, it's yet ANOTHER cheek product!
A blush and a vey expensive one and LE.

It's the one and only Guerlain Blush G

I bought this bad boy back in April and I forgot (not sure how) to post these photos.
It was completely sold out here in the UK but I managed to get it at Madrid Airport when en route to Buenos Aires. Yes, it was expensive around the £30 mark! But it was an airport purchase and they never feel like real purchases although when you look at your bank statement they clearly are!



Forget about the flashy and probably not necessary packaging (more on this below).
I just fell in love with the colours. All of them are right up my street and the colour you get when you mix them all up it's just The perfect peachy/coral colour.



This is the flashy packaging:

You get 
-A box (of course :P)
-A dust pouch with a hot pink inside. Yes, it's pretty but not my type of colour if you ask me.
-A mini super soft blush brush with hot pink bristles. And yes, it's ok. Not wow but ok. Dior's brushes are better in my opinion.

More photos
(can't help it...it's gorgeous)





I'm so happy I picked this one up. I don't regret it at all!
I don't use it that much because it was expensive and LE but I should.

I'm a great believer that people work hard (most of the time) to get make-up treats and we should all use them and enjoy them.  I do have a lot of drugstore products and I like to mix them with the high-end ones.

A lot of people do not use their expensive things for the every day work routine but I wonder why not? 
It's YOUR every day and everyday counts as a one an only day. 
Each day you have less days to live to live it to the maximum. Enjoy everything you have cheap or expensive. It's your life and you should enjoy it.

From now on I'm definitely including this guy into my every day routine.

Where you lucky enough to grab one of these while they lasted?
What's is your make-up treat that you cherish the most?

    Wow this looks beautiful...Guerlain wouldn&#39;t be a brand I&#39;ve used much of. I got my makeup done at a counter before and it looked fab.<br /><br />Is there any products from the brand you&#39;d recommend??...<br /><br />Laura&lt;3

    Ooohhhh.....very pretty! I see why you got it! I would feel bad spending that much, so if I did, I would definitely be using it regularly!

    @sparkley_gem: Thank you!!!! :) X<br /><br />@Rachy: Yes, I can&#39;t stop looking at it. I will post some photos soon. X<br /><br />@ALI75: Si, tuve una suerte terrible. La chica en el aeropuerto me dijo que era el ultimo! Pero era carisimo! X<br /><br />@MakeupTheNight: I do that all the time! Or I spray on some perfume that I want to buy soon. X<br /><br />@LauraMck: I started buying their stuff recently. It&#39;s quite expensive. I would totally recommend their foundation Lingerie de Peau. One of the bests! X<br /><br />@Delyteful Speaks: I experienced the same and the airport was my last chance. X<br /><br />@The Peach: Yes, it was veryyyyy expensive but it was a treat. X<br /><br />@Beauty and Bows: Yep :) X
