Since we're starting to get information on the collection, I thought it would be a good idea to start a new thread. Here's a couple of links to swatches that have been posted thus far:

Thank you for this, katred!

I swatched Rouges G Gladys, Mercedes-Benz and Lamborghini today.

Gladys and Mercedes-Benz are wonderful. Your typical Rouges G: great formula, intense pigmentation, comfortable. :) I have a slight preference for Mercedes-Benz because it's a bit warmer.
Lamborghini is very sheer with a bit of shimmer, and I guess it's great as a base to bring luminescence to a lipstick. Or also layered over a lipstick to add a bit of very subtle shimmer.

Here's Guerlain Joli Teint in Fonce on me. I'm Mac NW43/NC45. I love this foundation! Stays matte to satin all day without looking dewy. Perfect for travel, the beach and the humid weather to come. No need for a face primer. It's very cost effective compared to the other Guerlain foundation. Love this! Now I can't wait for the Rouge Gs and the Blush Bronzer.

I think the color descriptions are pretty accurate (more than the promo pictures). Mercedes-Benz is "ruby", so red with a cool undertone but it also has some warmth to it, when Gladys is "shocking ruby pink", so it's a similar shade but it definitely pulls cooler, more like a raspberry color.

I'm sorry I didn't take a picture. :( It's hard describing Mercedes-Benz because I swatched it next to cool Gladys, so I might remember seeing it warmer than it is on its own.

Edit: This is a good picture, color-wise. It's about the same color inside. :)

Swatches of Mercedes-Benz (called Rose Grenat in France, and probably elsewhere, if that helps for Google searches :). It definitely looks cooler on her than it did on me.

More promo pics of the collection including a new Rouge Automatique: http://www.chicprofile.com/2014/03/guerlain-sun-celebration-collection-for-summer-2014.html#more-89800. Tonka Imperiale sounds nice, but I'm going to get it for the name alone. This is my new signature perfume!
 
I'm a little disappointed that there is no eyeshadow in the collection. I think I will get the Tonka Imperiale lipstick and nail polish, and the Sun Celebration powder.

Rose Grenat is a must-have in my opinion , I purchased 4 of them with 20% off, well I love them all ( and not a Rouge G fan though ). Gladys, Géraldine and Rose Glacé are very pretty, Rose Glacé being a very very pale pink shade, very nice to wear. But the most impressive of all is Rose Grenat. !

I really really want the Sun celebration powder, but i have this feeling that I wont used it and will have the same fate as the Terra Inca star powder, who is practically unused and look brand new. :(
I wear it today and just find it is more a highlighter- sheer blush then a bronzer.

I think this may end up being my biggest Summer collection purchase. Well, along with the shadows from the Nars collection, all of which are appealing to me. These beautiful red and raspberry shades are right up my alley. And I actually love the Rouge G formula, which means I'm in even more trouble.

I wore the Joli Teint in Fonce a few times now. At first, I didn't know what to think of it. I thought I might return it. There isn't much coverage, but the most concerning thing is I thought it might be a little orange on me. I photographed myself in different lighting and it seemed fine. Today I wore it and for the first time I had a full face of makeup. Now I can say I like it. It does add a glow and a bit of a bronze, but not to the point where it changes the color of my face. This will be light and nice to have for the Summer. I didn't even powder my face and it wore just fine. Now I need one of those Terracotta bronzers I've been looking at forever. Just can't decide which shade.
 
You ladies are lucky to have found a good match in the Joli Teint; Fonce is too light and Ebony looked too red/orange... but it seems as though my first impression was on the same vein as yours Shontay, so perhaps I'll give it another go. Maybe it'll be just right when summer rolls around and I start to tan. I did, however, LOVE the finish.

Definitely give it another go. Maybe stick with Fonce. I think it's easier to go lighter and fix it from there if you have to. Take lots of pictures to make sure, too. I had to take some to confirm that it wasn't doing funky things to my complexion. Well, in my searching for the perfect terracotta bronzer shade I've discovered it contains bismuth oxychloride. That means it's a no-go for me. Glad to find out now than later when my face feels like it's melting off.
