Hello beauties and Happy August! I am so excited that it’s now August because this means one thing – holiday! Recently I’ve been so exhausted and not really in my best condition, so 10 days of beach walks and drinking cocktails is exactly what I need eeeek! Definitely let me know if you want me to do some sort of travelling posts like my travel essentials or what’s in my travel makeup bag! :)

For today, I really wanted to talk about a blush, which I got for my birthday not too long ago and which I absolutely fell in love with. Yes, I am referring to you YSL Cream Blush in #9 Baby Doll, you beaut! <3 You may know that I haven’t had the best experience with cream blushes and even though I love how most of them make my skin look, I face a real difficulty applying them. However, when I first saw this little pink pot of perfection I knew I wanted it so you can imagine that when I got it I was beyond excited and luckily it didn’t disappoint.

Let’s first talk packaging! I absolutely adore most YSL packaging, they are so feminine and luxurious and always look super pretty on my vanity. This one is no exception for me. Its bottom part is a nice sturdy clear glass and the lid is the signature gold color and has the YSL logo on top. Even though I love the look of the packaging I can’t fail to mention that it’s a bit bulky so have that in mind. My surprise, however, came when I first opened the lid and I saw the amount of product – it looked pretty small considering how much you pay for this blush! Luckily though it just looks like that and you actually get pretty decent amount – 0.19 oz / 5,5g (phew!) Also, since the circle where the blush is placed is tiny, I find it difficult to pick up product with a brush but you don’t need to do that to be honest. Oh, forgot to mention that the YSL cream blush has a nice floral-y scent to it but don’t worry – you can’t really sense it unless you don’t stick your nose in the jar! :)

The thing that stands out the most for me in this blush is the shade! Baby Doll is this gorgeous almost fluorescent bright baby pink shade, which in the way I see it is the prettiest pink blush! It is absolutely stunning and even though it looks a bit scary in the pan I promise you - it won’t make you look like a clown, just don’t use too much of it. What I do is, using my fingers I dab some of the blush on the apples of my cheeks and blend everything together with my Real Techniques Contour brush. This gives me the most beautiful and natural flush of color. I adore how this stuff brightens up my complexion and makes me look healthy and radiant.

The formula of the YSL Cream Blush is lovely too. It is literally SO lightweight and when you apply it it feels as if you’re hardly putting anything on. It has a nice mous-y texture and it is super soft and silky. This product is definitely not your typical cream blush because it doesn’t have that almost ‘greasy’ feel that many other creams tend to have but is still really creamy and smooth. It has an amazing cream-to-powder finish, which somehow still manages to add luminosity and beautiful dewiness to the skin. What I also like about the YSL cream blush is that is actually blends super easily and evenly without messing up your previous makeup layers. This stuff is also very buildable (but be careful with that) and stays on for absolute ages! <3

To sum up, I am really, really happy with this cream blush! It not only has the most stunning pink shade, which makes me look radiant and awake but the formula is also incredible! I know that $38 / £29 is pretty steep for a blush but to be honest I think it’s worth it because this product is amazing and I’ve never tried anything like it before. I can definitely see myself wearing it loads and I can’t recommend it enough!

Have you tried this cream blush before? Which is your favorite cream blush? (:

Lots of love,

  4. I've only ever tried lipsticks from YSL. This blush sounds so lovely and I really like the fact that it has a floral scent. The shade is absolutely gorgeous and definitely one that I would use.
    Have a lovely holiday!

  6. This is so beautiful Andrea, I need a YSL cream blush in my life. The packaging is so pretty but I think I'd buy a more peachy pink shade as that's my go-to blush shade xx

  11. I think the packaging is really beautiful and luxurious! Love how it looks even without using it haha. I think the blush is a little too pink for my skin tone though - I prefer more orange/coral tones. I'm afraid that it would look too fake on my skin, and I always prefer my makeup as natural as possible :) Loved reading this! Your reviews are awesome :D

  21. This looks gorgeous, and the packaging is amazing! I'm glad to hear it stays on ages, nothing worse than cream blushes rubbing off or being really patchy. The colour looks like it would give such a natural looking glow to the skin too.
