A bit of luxury in today's blog comes in the form of my first product from YSL! I've always adrmired the overly luxurious packaging (and prices) and I have to say, that they really do feel like a little bit of luxury in your collection.
I thought I'd review this YSL Babydoll Kiss and Blush after seeing a lot of hype surrounding them. This stunning orange coral shade is number 7 (Corail Affranchi) and comes packaged in what first looks like a nail polish bottle at first glance with the signature YSL gold packaging. Housed in the lid is this heart like shaped wand that allows you to use this easily as a lip and cheek product.
When it comes to multi use products, I usually find that I prefer it as one or the other - they are generally not brilliant at doing both jobs. This one however really is! For lips I love applying it directly from the bottle using the applicator included, it's a gorgeous matte coral shade that is perfect for summer and long lasting. As it's matte I'd recommend a good lip balm underneath, but generally speaking I don't find the formula to be overly drying. The colour lasts a fair amount of time, probably 3-4 hours. It isn't a staining product, so I'd say that was pretty good.
For a blush, I use the applicator to pop some on my hand and then use a stipple brush to apply it to the cheeks. It gives a glowing flush of coral to the cheeks and looks lovely on. You don't need a huge amount of product, so this will last a decent length of time. In terms of staying power it's pretty darn awesome - I find it still looks great at the end of the day and although a cream formula it blends nicely into the skin without sitting on top of foundation weirdly.
They are a bit pricey at £27 each (here), but for a product that actually works well as both a lipstick and a blush I love it! The shade range is quite extensive with 12 shades on offer, so I would love to get my hands on a pink-toned shade next!
