YSL Fuchsia Desinvolte (01) Baby Doll Kiss and Blush

Earlier this month, YSL offered an early debut of two shades of the YSL Baby Doll Kiss and Blush ($40.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) range, and I bought both shades that were available. They’ve since released twelve shades, though they say online exclusive at the moment. The official release date is later on in April.  I’ll be reviewing both shades I bought, and this is the first one up!

Maybelline Nude Rebellion & Barely Pink Master Glaze Glisten Blush Sticks

For spring, Maybelline released two limited edition shades of Master Glaze in its Dare to Go Nude Collection. The Master Glaze formula is supposed to give cheeks a “dewy and gently glazed” look with “the sheerest color.” They have a slick, very emollient consistency, so they blend out really easily, even over foundation, without disturbing underlying base products. They never fully set or dry down, which leaves the finish looking noticeably luminous and dewy–for some, it might look “oily,” as it is a higher level of sheen. Wear time is short, though, and I don’t get much longer than six hours of wear before it looks faded and patchy.
