The new YSL Blush Radiance released this Fall is part of their Jardin de Minuit Makeup Collection. Each blush contains 4g of product, made in France. These half-matte, half satin blushers capture light and transform it into colour to create a radiant veil for the cheeks. Available in 6 shades.
The blush is housed in the signature YSL gold casing which is prone to fingerprints. It comes with a velvet pouch and a very soft brush, feels luxury swiping it across the face.
I picked up shade N°6.
Pictured above, from left to right, top to bottom: YSL Blush Radiance N°1, N°2, N°3, N°4, N°5 and N°6.
I am very glad I had the opportunity to swatch the shades in person. The ones I set my eyes on were either too light on my skin tone. From my memory and impression;-
N°1 is a mid-tone neutral brown which can be doubled up as a contouring shade
N°2 is a light peach with a golden undertone which is too light on my skin tone – merely visible
N°3 is a soft lilac with a blue-pink undertone – quite a unique shade for a blush
N°4 is a pale baby pink which is too light on my skin tone – kind of like a highlighter
N°5 is a deep burgundy brown-red, almost like a red wine
N°6 is a soft rose with a pop of pink which brightens up my skin tone
All the colours are very well pigmented and look distinctively different from one another.
Texture of the YSL Blush Radiance is smooth and silky with a satin finish. Because it doesn’t contains sparkles or much shine, it doesn’t enlarge pores around the cheek area. The finish is slightly more interesting than a matte blush – very natural and sophisticated. I would love to pick up N°3 and N°5 next when they are made available at DFS.
Did you pick up any of the Blush Radiance? If so, which colour did you pick? Are you liking it?
Thank you for reading.
