I’ve managed to get YSL Kiss & Blush swatched – I only have a couple of shades here but I particularly requested No.5 (behind) because I know it’s bang on for that perfect healthy flush thing I’m always so envious of when I see it on others.
So, here’s No.5, Rouge Effrontee, and it’s perfect for cherry cheeks and rosebud lips. I much prefer this formula as a liquid blush and have to warn you that it isn’t the easiest to work with – I used the YSL Kiss & Blush applicator to daub the palm of my hand and then used a kabuki to quickly pick up the colour from there and brush in speedy, circular motions on my cheeks. I did feel under pressure to be quick because the texture is quite thick. I think this would be a great choice for darker skin tones, including black skin.
No. 8, Pink Hedonite YSL Kiss & Blush, is a little more neutral although erring to pink and you still get that real-skin flush. I would suggest though that you practice on your arm a couple of times before committing to the cheeks because it is a little stain-y. Despite the formula being a little bit more tricky to work with, it’s definitely worth it – fabulous flush like this doesn’t come along every day.
YSL Kiss & Blush launches at the end of April for £27.

The colours look so pretty! I’d probably work too slowly for it though.
I must have No 5!
Can’t wait to have them! The applicator is a brush or a doe foot?
Doe foot 🙂
These look really interesting. Can’t wait to try them! Did they have a good staying power?
