Yves Saint Laurent Creme de Blush
I purchased this in both Temptation and Rouge Passion. The colors look way too bright in the pot (hot pink and bright red) but on they are so lovely. The pink is a very subtle soft pink (which you can layer to make brighter) that makes you look like you stepped in from the cold. The red has the same effect- a natural looking flush to the cheeks. I think they look best applied to the apples of your cheeks. One thing to note is that if you wear foundation, the blush removes a lot of the make up underneath wherever you apply it. For this reason I'd only wear them without foundation/powder.
Worth the Price
I love the cream to powder formula. I bought the Powdery Rose and it is a beautiful color. I love the way it looks ...looks like a lovely powder blush. I find it easier to apply than powder blush. You can put it on as light or heavy as you want. It is pricey. That is why I gave it 4 stars. However, it is a keeper.
Fuchsia temptation is tempting!
I have been looking for the perfect cream blush for the past few weeks after finding that some of my powder blushes were not as pigmented or bright as I wanted for summer. After reading the positive reviews online, I couldn't resist going into my local Nordstrom and giving this blush a try. I wanted a bright poppy pink so I went for the color called fuchsia temptation. In the pot, it looks bright- almost neon- pink, but on the skin it gives a nice rosey glow. I still love the color because it's perfect for everyday, but would have preferred it to be truer to the color in the pot. I think if I added more blush, I could definitely have a brighter pop of color. The cream blush pots are very small which is why I gave the blush four stars. For the price, I would have liked more product. Overall, the blush has great consistency and great coverage- can be applied easily using your fingertips. I might try another color next time I need a blush!
YSL Audacious Orange
It comes in a really beautiful packaging and the quality is just superb! I'm medium tan (Asian) and I use it with my Armani foundation (5.5) and Laura Mercier finishing powder, I get a lot of compliments. YSL beauty products are so beautiful and exquisite on my skin.
