Is it a blush, is it a lipstick or is it a gloss? In fact, it is all three – introducing Yves Saint Laurent’s new, multipurpose products in all their pretty, golden packaged glory. YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush Lips and Cheeks stains are the ultimate double player for your lips and cheeks with an incredibly light, air-whipped formula allowing easy application to kiss your cheeks and blush your lips with the prettiest of colours. Available in a range of 12 playful shades, everyone is bound to find a colour to suit them, available on counters and online from YSL Beauty (£27 each).
I have recently been testing out two of the new YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush stains, 01. Fuchsia Desinvolte (left) and 03. Rose Libre (right) which give you a lovely bright fuchsia pink or a softer, rose pink tint to your cheeks and lips. These products have a really clever formula which makes them so perfect as both a lip and cheek stain with a gorgeous velvet texture that dries to a semi-matte finish on your lips yet remains luminous and long-wearing on the cheeks. The consistency on the lips reminds me a little of Bourjois’ Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks. Initially the colour looks a little scary when applied to the cheeks but with just a few dots and some delicate blending you can sheer out or build up the intensity as much as you like. And the patented ‘hidden pearl’ applicator is pretty fab at making the cream formula glide neatly onto your lips with overloading them with too much product. For those of you who love a good 2-in-1, multifunctional product for easy, on the go makeup then these Kiss & Blush lips and cheeks stains are absolutely perfect – I already have my eye on a few other shades for my collection, Coral Affranchi and Pink Hedoniste in particular!
