In early 2020, Hermès launched their first makeup, a lipstick called Rouge Hermès. This April, the range expands to include a silky smooth blush — Rose Hermès — in various shades of pink, and packaged in a sophisticated disc compact designed by French fashion designer, Pierre Hardy who also worked on the packaging of the lipsticks. And similar to the lipstick casing, the blush compact is refillable, and there’s a Pommette blush case launched alongside the makeup to perfectly complement it.

The blush has a subtle fragrance that is created by Christine Nagel, Director of Hermès Parfums, and similar to Rouge Hermès, includes notes of arnica and sandalwood, with hints of green tea. These are the 8 shades of Rose Hermès:
Rose Abricot — Orange pink.
Rose Blush — A pink blended with coral.
Rose Plume — Delicate dew, a misty watercolour refreshed with a hint of blue.
Rose Pommette — Bright, radiant pink.
Rose Ombré — Celestial peony, subtle pink.
Rose Tan — A lightly tanned and golden pink.
Rose Nuit — A deep pink, delicately enhanced with a touch of blue.
Rose Poivré (in Asia only) — The pink of a Persian night enveloped in spices.

There’s also a face brush and travel brush to accompany the new blusher. The design of the brushes follows the block colour style of the lipsticks and are made to provide easy and precise application of the powder blush to the skin. The fibres are goat bristle and are hand-assembled by a French brush-maker.

As part of the Rose Hermès collection, the brand also introduces three sheer and translucent rosy pink lipsticks called Rosy Lip Enhancer. The formula is made to melt over the lips on contact, leaving behind a matte but still luminous finish that is intensely hydrating.
