The product that I was most excited to play with from the YSL collection was the Creme De Blush. The first three colours have been launched before, three ready to wear shades (Velvet Peach, Powder Rose and Silky Praline) and two catwalk shades called Passion Red and Temptation Fuchsia which are BRIGHT.
Yves Saint Laurent plays with color in a collection of cream blushes that sculpt and highlight the cheekbones in an “ultra-natural” way.
On contact with the skin, the creamy texture turns into a light powdery film.
Velvety soft, light and airy, its exceptionally smooth texture blends perfectly and the color adapts like a “second skin”.
The packaging is like all YSL, in shiny gold and luxurious. I chose two chased, Velvet Peach for every day and Temptation Fuchsia just because it looked like so much fun:
Here are the colours. Both of these are gorgeous colours – I love peaches anyway and this is a warm orange coral brown type shade. Fuchsia Temptation is part of the Spring 2011 ‘look’, Bohemian Chic and looks so much fun.
The texture of these is firm – NOT HARD – just not oily or waxy in anyway. It got more of a siliconey feel to it and has just the right amount of pigmentation.
I absolutely love love love love love Fuchsia Temptation. It is absolutely hot florescent pink it’s so bright:
But on the skin it’s just RIGHT. It’s not horridly bright and scary at on, it’s pretty and brightens the face (it’s not exactly powder pink either, it has the right amount of kick).
Swatches of a small amount of product:
Once it sets, it stays all day, I find cream blushers disappear on me but this lasted all day as a bit of a stain.
These are fab but if you can only grab one, it must be Fuchsia!
These are £28 each.
