YSL Orange Fougueux (04) Baby Doll Kiss and Blush
YSL Orange Fougueux (04) Baby Doll Kiss and Blush

YSL Orange Fougueux (04) Baby Doll Kiss and Blush ($40.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is a softly brightened, medium tangerine orange with warm, yellow undertones, and very fine golden shimmer-sheen. The shimmer is almost imperceptible when swatched or applied. Maybelline Coral Burst (LE, $5.99) is brighter. NARS Rotonde (LE, $41.00) is more matte. MAC Fiery Impact (LE, $25.00) is slightly more muted but sheered out, they are similar. MAC Optimistic Orange (LE, $21.00) is brighter. Benefit Cha Cha (P, $30.00) is more red-toned. See comparison swatches. (Look here for similar shades for it as a lip color.)

The new formula is supposed to work on cheeks and lips, and the texture is described as an “air whipped mousse” and has a “soft matte finish.”  The color is supposed to be buildable.  For a more in-depth overview of the packaging and applicator, read my original review of the formula.  Orange Fougueux had good color coverage, which felt buildable, blendable, and easy to use at varying intensities.  It’s pigmented enough where you feel like the product stretches–a little goes a long way–but a little dab gives a soft, sheer tint to cheeks or lips.  The consistency is thin, almost velvety and silky at the same time, but as it is blended and worked into the skin, it melts and becomes more powder-like.  The final result is a satin finish–not truly dewy but not matte.  On lips, it stays glossy for a couple hours, and then the shine starts fading and by the end of wear, it’s satin-like.  As a blush, it wore well for eight hours, and as a lip color, it wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.  This shade didn’t leave a stain behind.  The formula has a sweet, mango-and-grape scent to me, kind of like Glossy Stains but less intense.

  1. Was hoping for an orange that packed more of a punch, tbh.

  2. Beautiful! Turns out it will cost almost $10 to send/return..and it looks less orange on you then I expected (I had gotten this and fuchsia as I wrote on your fuchsia review). So I might actually try this….I’ve only looked at it in bottle and haven’t opened it. Hm…I can definitely use it as a blush and add a pink gloss over it on lips.
    I will likely keep mine in this color after your review. Thanks!
    Any chance you’ll review any other colors?

    Gah! This is pretty! I really love it on the cheeks! is it hard to blend?

  4. Hey, I was looking at your CoverGirl Lip Perfection posts and you mentioned testing out all 44 shades but I can only see reviews for a few. Where are the others?

  5. Wow It looks gorgeous! I really like it but I’m not totally sold on this just because the quantity vs the price it’s a little… unfair :C But if I’m going to buy one of this, this is going to be the color :) Thanks Christine for your reviews n.n

    • The quantity is pretty high for a blush or lipstick/lipgloss, actually!

      • Oh Good to know! I just want to try some “multitasker” products and I assumed that the quantity would not be enough, but now I’m ready to pull the trigger on this product :) thanks again!

        • No problem! :)

          Most gloss is around 0.20 fl. oz. and a lot of blushes are around 0.15 oz. or so – some are larger, some are smaller. Cream blushes are usually less (like the newer Chanel and MUFE blushes are 0.09 oz. each!).

    Very pretty on you, Christine! Your complexion looks really lovely with warm tones like this and makes me want to buy everything. :)

  7. I absolutely love this! I will most likely be picking this up soon!!

  8. Raven

    omg these are gorgeous, I love the packaging too

  9. This shade is gorgeous on you, Christine! I’m not entirely sure that my skin tone can handle oranges like that (then again, I have bright orange lipsticks that I LOVE), but I’m willing to try it out. I’d probably play with this in a store before putting money down on this shade.

  10. AmyD

    PRETTY. Can’t wait to play with these if/when they make it to Sephora!

  11. Very cute! I really really really want to try one of these. It’s so rare to find a lip and cheek product that actually does well on both the lips and cheeks.

  12. Wow, I really like this one! This one and the fuschia might be too far out of my comfort zone, but I’m excited to see the others.

  13. I actually really like this orange because its so soft..

  14. This looks sooo amazing on your cheek! I wish I could wear orange!

  15. This is much more in my alley what a gorgeous warm shade!

    Hi, do you know when it will be available at Sephora.

  17. Oh look, a shade I love from the line already. I think my wallet is doomed. :P

  18. This is a beautiful color! I thought it would be more orange too but I like it

    I cannot choose between this orange and the fuchsia color. They are both lovely. Which one would you prefer for someone with my skin tone, medium yellow undertone, nc30? Thanks for the review!

  20. This colour looks *awesome* on you, Christine! I love the finish, too – so soft and luminous.

    The color is a nice orangey-peachy tone. Normally products with multiple purposes don’t work so well but this seems pretty good!

  22. Avatar of Luiza Luiza

    Wow! This is THE color for your cheeks! You look so gorgeous, really suited your skin tone!

    I was like: “nah, won’t look good on anyone” – and then I saw your swatch. Looks gorgeous on you, Christine! Makes me want to try it and I wouldn’t normally.
