The Russian doll cream blush is very pigmented like a corally colour and gives a nice glow so using only a little at a time as it goes a long way!!made me convert to a cream blush loverr...the formula for the cream blush is not too watery or thick and it gives enough time to spread it before it drys..the stain powers great too....however the pump is really hard to control...too much comes out which is why mastering that is a mission...the packaging is quite cute tho :) and it is expensive for the amount you get...

This has become my favourite blush, and I dont think I'll be using any other any time soon. Firstly, the colour is a beautiful, natural corally pink, which is quite vibrant and also goes with most skin tones. It is a cream so it doesnt have that chalky powdery finish, but makes your skin glow and at the same time isnt greasy.
I have very fair skin and I dont apply much, just a bit is enough. So it's great value too. I think for darker skintones you can apply more. It also goes with the rest of the Guerlain Slavic beauty collection, especially the Volga Princess palette.
Also this is the sort of product that has so many uses...you can also use it on your lips, on your browbone, in the crease. It just gives you an all over glow.
I know a lot of people have been complaining about the pump, but I found a way around it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have to press your finger very hard to bit where the blush comes out, and press the pump slowly. You will get just enough.

First thing I thought was "Packaging is exquisite and adorable! I.Must.Hav.It." It's true that a full pump is too much, but if you are really careful, you can get half a pump of product, which is more than enough for both cheeks. You just need to do it slowly and be patient :D I'm in love with the color, a beautiful corally pink (all I want in a blush). The texture is soft and not greasy, like most liquidy blushes. It's a bit expensive, that's for sure, but I have already bought a back up! :-P

I really love this blush, beautifull color which provides fresh look. I really like a long lasting scent. Its very easy to apply. And the packaging is really very cute.

Wonderful blush! I like everything about the Russian Doll, except the pump, which everybody has critisized.
This blush blends ideally and suits me perfectly. Its colour that scared at the beginning applies very smoothly and gently, making me look fresh. Just love it and regret the packing is so tiny and soon I'll have to look for something to replace this blush with, as it's a limited edition and already not available at the counter where I bought it. I hope Guerlain will produce some similar product in their next collections.

I first stepped down the dark path of pricey Guerlain when I discovered their Terracotta Loose Powder Kohl Eyeliners. When the Terracotta spray bronzer came out last spring, I snapped that up, too. When the Russian Doll blush started appearing in all the magazines, I knew what the plan was for my Nordstrom's Fall trend show makeover.
I asked my MA to build a look for me centered around the blush. I knew from the adverts that this blush would suit my fair pinky complexion. The MA was worried that it'd be too much color for me, but even he was shocked at how much color I could take. He applied it with a brush, which gave me a really soft air-brushed look.
I love the way it smells, but I took off one lippy for the amount of product that dispenses from the pump. I can get a quarter-pump, but that's still a lot of product wasted. I know that the product is pricey, but since Nordstrom's was out of stock in the whole company, my MA gave me the tester for free. :)

I generally prefer liquid blushers as I find the result more natural and they tend to have more staying power. My favourites are "Pinch your cheeks" by Origins and Benetint. Russian Doll blush has disappointed me. The texture is fine and blendable and the scent gorgeous but I don`t like the dead peachy color which ensures an unnatural effect. At that previous reviewers are absolutely right in critizising the pump dispenser which renders it impossible to get the amount individually needed.

I'm only giving this a 4, as opposed to 5 as it just didn't 'wow' me enough to warrant that extra lippy. Nothing wrong with it at all in my opinion - just isn't worth that top rating - I could change my mind in a few moths though!
I bought this online and the first thing I thought when I saw it was - "oh - That's small".
I just had no idea that it would be so tiny. The packaging however is very cute, beautiful in fact.
This is a liquid blush and I think the consistency is lovely, not too think or too watery. It applies well and is easy to blend as it doesn't dry too fast. I found staying power was pretty good too.
I can't really compare it to anything else as I only have cream or powder blushes - I do really love it though and would consider buying more if Guerlain released other shades.
On my skin it's a pretty, subtle corally rose and the colour can be built up too. Thankfully no breakouts for my sensitive skin either - Phew!

I love this color, I am used of liquid blush since I have all of the Giogrio Armani ones and one from By Terry. This is a pinky coral similar to one from GA but it is sheerer and smells devine. It imparts a sutble glowy color to the cheeks and yes the pump takes some getting used of but I could not pass since it is a LE for Fall. If they make additional colors in future collections I would be sure to repurchase. I wish GA would come out with some more. Of all 3 brands of liquid blush I would chose GA, maybe because I am so used of it and it lasts forever and there is no scent but this one smells like the meteriotes and I love that smell and the By Terry smells of roses another smell I adore.
When using a blush of this texture lightly dabbing and blending in necessary once you get used of it it is not that difficult and I reach for my liquid blushes far more than I reach for my powders.

I too tried Russian Doll blush, and frankly the color scarred me!
it is bright pink coral and it is true you have to much blush in your hand with one pump. I do not have and use liquide blush in my regular makeup routine so when i tried to put it on my cheeks and blend I did not like the result (too much ... so you keep blending... and then you only have a little glow on your cheeks!) :(
I have everything from Guerlain, fondation (parure extreme), bronzers, blush, lipstick, glosses, eyeshadows and khol... Russian Doll Blush will not be part of my collection.

I did not buy this product. I wanted to after seeing the extensive advertisements for it and the beautiful packaging. So I went through Saks today and I saw this and I instantly thought about trying it. So I confess that the packaging is exquisite. Plastic, clearly, but the designs on the package add interest and it looks expensive (which is why we buy Guerlain, no?!) It's a slim bottle, not too small either (think 1.5 tubes of lipstick stacked) and it operates with a pump. And here is the problem. You cannot control the pump. I pressed down and instantly I understood that I could not do a "half-pump" or a "quarter-pump". So a full-pump issued a very generous puddle of beautiful bright pink-coral blush. The texture was exquisite, the pigmentation was perfect (very highly pigmented) but I stained almost the entire backside of my hand from just one pump so you can imagine what this would do to your face. Even an application to cheeks and lips would leave an abundant quantity leftover. So really the pump ruins a brilliant liquid blusher. I would consider forking over $42 for this, but if I am wasting half of each portion, it isn't worth the money.
