I was gone for around 10 days and it was an unexpected break from the beauty world. It feels good to be back and I sorely missed all you guys.
So getting back to this post I shall be reviewing the YSL BLUSH RADIANCE IN NO.1.
YSL is such a luxury and so definitely all its products also make you feel that way. I chose to review this blush from their range called BLUSH RADIANCE.
PRICE: $USD 45. INR 3127.
PACKAGING: I am a sucker for packaging I cant even begin to describe, so many times I have loved a product but left it because I didnt like the packaging. But no such thing here. YSL in an experience. Its gold packaging is so regal feeling.
Put the product out of the gold colored packaging and VOILA you have a cute velvet pouch, encased within which is your RADIANCE along with a small blush brush, which although is not very useful but is indeed the softest brush I have come across. The gold metal feeling like compact case is quiet sturdy and locks up tight so it is indeed travel friendly.
COLOR, TEXTURE AND EVERYTHING ELSE:
On first look its pure bliss, there are two colors in four squares which all go pretty well together.One look at the product and you know its soft and smooth. Its a light coral color with brown toned nude. The blush has visible shimmer but they are so soft and finely milled they impart a subtle glow on the cheeks after application. Its a pretty comapct quad with the two diagonal shades being matte and two being shimmery.
TEXTURE: Its so smooth and almost feels creamy, well its not cream but powder. But ever so smooth and blends like a dream. The finish it leaves on the skin is very natural looking, and this particular shade just warms up the face so perfectly. This shade is best suited for fair to medium skinned beauties.
The blush is so light weight and blends into the skin so well, it doesnt budge from its place for hours and hours. It easily lasts up to 7-8 hours. It might well stay beyond that, but I havent worn it above that time frame.
APPLICATION: I just swirl the blush brush into all the colors and pat off the excess product, you really dont need a lot product as it is densely pigmented and a little goes a long way.
OVERALL VERDICT: TWO THUMBS UP to this beauty. Definitely recommend it and gonna pick up other colors.
UNTIL NEXT TIME…
