YSL Cream Blush no. 9 Baby Doll*
£29, available online and on counters

In case you hadn’t noticed, there has been a whole lot of cream blusher action on my blog lately, from Benefit’s Fine One One to my most recent obsession, the Stila Convertible Colors, which I have raved about here and here. So it only seemed apt that I carry on in the same vein and introduce you to the latest little blusher that is making me gush with rosy cheeked delight. Compared to the Stila Convertible Colors, Yves Saint Laurent’s offering to the cream blusher market has a more mousse-like consistency and dries to a light, powdery finish. The texture is velvety-soft and easy to apply over your foundation for that just pinched flush of colour but doesn’t leave you with the dewy freshness that you get from the aforementioned products. That said, YSL cream blushers are perfectly pigmented and are so smooth to apply, giving you an even, flawless application and will appeal to those who prefer a more matte finish to their makeup.

This little number in Baby Doll, no.9 is a beauty to behold and almost too pretty to ruin with that first fingerprint in the bright pink cream…almost. The packaging is just as luxe as you would expect from YSL and I love the chunky, angular pot topped with their signature gold lid. It is pricey yes, but perfectly fills the void in my collection that has been patiently waiting for a soft baby-pink cream blusher that lifts and sculpts my cheeks perfectly. That’s my justification and I’m sticking to it!

Have you tried any of the cream blushers from YSL?

    such an amazing colour! I agree with you, the packaging is as perfect as always! x

    It looks so pretty on you but I'm pretty sure it would look to bright on me. I'm very pale at the moment so I'd look like a clown πŸ˜€ I really like it on you though!

    Great post!

    I've never tried any of YSL's cream blushers but this looks gorgeous! The packaging definitely adds to the luxurious feel.

    Absolutely stunning Milly. I may have to ask for this one for my birthday! xx

    Oh wow, this looks amazing! I love the look of the Stila Convertible Colour's especially Lillium.. but they look a bit too glowy/wet for me. This looks perfect, and sooo pretty! xx

    Beautiful packaging, and beautiful product. Gives such a lovely glow.

    This colour looks so gorgeous on you. I absolutely ADORE YSL, mainly because of their fancy yet chic and sophisticated packaging. This blush seems perfect to me!

  14. 7th March 2013 / 5:20 pm

    I think I'd be tempted to buy this for the packaging alone. It's a lovely colour though so a winner all round! x Becky

    this is absolutely beautiful!

    Slightly off topic but I always love your eye makeup too xo

  16. 7th March 2013 / 6:48 pm

    no but I absolutely will now <3

  17. 7th March 2013 / 8:51 pm

    This looks gorgeous!
    Β£29 though…..hmm I MAY just have to treat myself! πŸ˜‰

    I have never tried any of their bushers (or products) before. They've always been a little pricey for me. Saying that I do love the colour of this one and I love mousse-y products. I'm extremely tempted!

    The colour looks gorgeous on you πŸ™‚

    I love this, so pink and girly and perfect for summer!

  22. 14th March 2013 / 3:08 am

    I need this! So beautiful!

  23. 18th March 2013 / 11:42 pm

    Ooo I like the fact that they're not so dewy. But lets be honest, I would buy them just for the packaging and the amazing colour! Its the sort of thing that would make you feel good just by looking at it.

    Such a pretty shade! It looks wonderful on you.. I have this blush in shade 1 which is a peach and i looove the formula heaps! It's so easy to blend and so flattering on the skin.. I think I just might go ahead and pick this shade up too.. Been contemplating which shade to pick next.. Thanks for the post!

    Hi doll πŸ™‚

    I'm seeing YSL everywhere and it's all so attractive! Along with the lipsticks, now with the blushers, I think I can feel a splurge coming on. What a fab colour choice by the way, baby pink – no better colour in my opinion, ha ha ha!

    Thank you for sharing this!
    Lots of love,
