Review: YSL Yves Saint Laurent Crème de Blush No 9


This is from my last Douglas Haul, I’ve been craving to have a blush like this for a long time! And though for 40 € it is expensive I wanted to try it out! The YSL Crème de Blushcomes in 9 shades, I first wanted to get No 7, a typical cold and mauve-ish pink. This is the color I usually get and I already have way to many blushes like that. But this time I changed my mind and ordered No 9 Baby Doll!
No 9 Baby Doll is a very Barbie-, Bubble Gum-like, fresh and preppy pink shade! I usually never have blushes like that but I’ve seen reviews and decided I should try something new. I am extremely happy with this blush I have to say, even though there are only about 5 g it is really worth the price. It is a mousse/ cream - kind of blush and literally melts on your skin into a soft, slightly dewy finish! Here’s a swatch:


This after just brushing over the blush lightly with my finger. The opacity is very much build-able but still very light in wearability! Here's a pic of me wearing the blush:
 
I like a slightly “over-blushed” look sometimes, but this either way is really pretty! I tried both methods, putting it on before I set my make-up with powder and after, both is the same, easy breezy! Which is another great thing because what I experienced with other crème blushes is that they sometimes are difficult to apply in both stages because they wipe away my foundation or powder beneath! This blush isn’t like that. I probably won’t buy such an expensive blush for a long time, especially since I hope it will last a little bit longer despite its size.

  2. Ich liebe die YSL Verpackungen.Immer sehr edel und hochwertig :)
    Leider kann ich mit der cremigen Textur nicht so viel anfangen,weil es sich bei mir immer schlecht verblenden lässt ^^ Wäre übrigens cool wenn es Pflaster für die Absätze gäbe..nur fraglich ob die nicht schnell ausfransen.

    Liebste Grüße

  3. I think this colour suits you well. Makes me want to own a creme blush- all I've got is powery blushes which can look quite unnatural at times.
