YSL Fall 2009 Collection Sneak Peek – Part 3

YSL for Fall 2009 sees the introduction and limited release of three cream blushes, available in Velvety Peach, Powdery Rose, and Silky Praline ($38.00 each). YSL describes them as…

Velvety soft, airy, as light as a cloud… A delicious texture that melts on the skin and brings a rosy warmth to the cheeks. A sensual cream blush that becomes an irresistible powdery veil on contact with the skin, accentuates the cheekbones and instantly illuminates the face. No layered effect, no mask feeling… just a touch of bare-skin color for a radiant, natural-looking glow.

I would definitely have to agree with the soft, airiness of the product. It feels extremely light to the touch, and it is certainly creamy–without being thick or goopy. I was able to play with Powdery Rose, which is a soft, pale pink when sheered out. It can be layered for more intense color or sheered out for subtle color, depending on your preferences and needs. There’s just the faintest shimmer/sheen in it, but the sheerer you wear it, the less noticeable the shimmer is. I prefer to use a stippling brush like the 188 to apply this to cheeks, because it gives you more control over the application and allows you to build up the intensity to the level you want without any fuss.
