I don't like dark blush, (I just think it look too 80s) So Cherry Blossom was in line with my taste. Light pink-coral and the initial design was to die for! I do not mind the texture of this blush, It could be a little more pigmented as I do not know if I should used it as a highlighter or blush. But then i just purchase Blush G serie noire from Guerlain which is a bright coral, so what I did is I used Blush G (who is really pigmented!) a little under my natural cheeks line and just a little on top of it I blended it with Cherry Blossom!!! It was just awesome!

This blush disappoints me. After the overlay design (w/c is really beautiful) was removed, you get a chalky pink pigment that is very matte and hard to blend. The color is beautiful though, it will look good w/ light medium skin tones.

The packaging is VERY beautiful however I was quite disappointed by the quality of the blush inside. The shimmer that was on top of the blush disappears after one use and what is left is a chalky peachy pink color. Once applied it is very pale and definitely not worth the money. This was my first Guerlain product and was very disappointed. Thank god I was able to get a refund! Do not purchase!!!

So far this is the worst Guerlain product I’ve tried.
At first, it looked gorgeous with the shimmery overspray in various shades of pink and orange. Unfortunately, once the overspray is removed (after several sweeps of brush), you’re left with the product of horrible quality (for a HE product).
Most of the blush is light pink, while the upper right and lower left corners were in the shade of coral orange. This wouldn’t be so bad, but the shade you get is mostly pale pink and it is such an awful chalky colour.
The texture of the blush is not what I consider a typicall blush texture. For me, a blush should offer a decent pigmentation, without covering up the skin – the blush should melt with the skin and look natural, but this doesn’t melts with the skin, it just sits obviously on the skin. This blush, texture-wise, reminds me more on the eyeshadow texture and wearing this blush I’ve felt as if I put some cheap chalky eyeshadow on my cheeks.
I don’t know who did they made this blush for – it looks chalky on any skin colour. I gave it to my friends to try it – I am NC 20, and my friends are NC45, NW30 and NC15 and it looke very artificial on everyone.
The only good thing about it is the brush included. I know that usually the brushes the brands provide with their maek-up products are worthless, but I think that Guerlain’s brushes are worth keeping. The brush is really soft and applies the blush perfectly.
The only reason you should buy this is if you are collecting it, because unused it really looks as a work of art.

This LE blush is part of Guerlain's Cherry Blossom color story. It retailed for $49 US and was released in January 2010.
Once the shimmery overspray disappears, the powder is pale pink with peach accents. On my NC45 DDD/GGG skin, it acts more like a pale pinky-peachy highlighter that sculpts the cheeks beautifully but deposits very little color - which, is the way I like my blush. Other dark girls may be irritated with this.
The packaging is luxe and gorge - but the amount of blush is negligible. You get a tiny strip of blush that takes up, at most, 1/2 of the compact, as well as a brush I will never use.
The price is quite high - I actually bought this, saw how little you got, and returned it, then managed to swap for it. I do love it and it's quickly becoming a go-to product for when I want subtle definition and polish. If I didn't have so many blushes, I might have paid full price for it. It is a nice product.

It is perhaps the best pinky/peach blush that I have owned. On my NC35 skin, it shows up more peach than pink, fairly warm with a golden glow. Did not have to use too much effort to build up the colour. The overspray disappears after first use, but that does not seem to affect the colour of the blush on the skin. I would say that for me, this is bordering on HG territory.
The wear was good over Guerlain extreme foundation, with a dusting of meteriorites to set.
I would actually consider getting a backup of this.
EDIT: I am taking a lippie off for 2 reasons:
1) when the overspray disappears (basically after the first use), the blush is nowhere as pretty;
2) the glow disappears with the overspray, and the finish is quite chalky. Comparatively, the effect is very ordinary, and the "lit from within" glow is gone.
No - I won't be buying a backup after all.

This is really pretty, it come sin a pretty case and the design of the blush is ispiried by Japanese springs and is pink and girly, with a bit of sheer.
Limited edition!! But it's expensive... €41... that the only thing that would stop be from re-purchasing this.
