YSL Corail Rive Gauche is a very warm-toned, light coral with a satin finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $42.00 and contains 0.11 oz.
YSL Corail Rive Gauche Couture Blush ($42.00 for 0.11 oz. ) is a soft coral with warm undertones and a golden sheen. The texture was incredibly stiff to the touch, which made it difficult to pick up product on a brush (even with fingertips!) and apply to skin. It was harder to blend and apply the color wet as it seemed not to transfer much from brush to skin. I scraped off layers of product using the end of the brush (the handle part, not the brush head!) to get it to show up on my cheeks. It's a shame as the finish was luminous with faint micro-sparkle and fine pearl, so it looked nice once I managed to get enough pigment onto my cheeks and worked at it to buff out the edges. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
