YSL Creme de Blush - Velvet Peach

 A peach parade

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well, it's been a while since i last blogged as things have been a bit MENTAL for want of a better word. Work has been crazy busy, i completed my masters degree and also moved house, anyway i am back to my passion which is obsessing about makeup and spending too much money i don't have.

Tonight i am blogging tonight about a blusher i got from YSL a couple of months back - it is shade 1 'velvety peach', i seem to have an obsession at the moment with finding the perfect peach blusher and cream blushers are my hedonism at the moment!

Here we go, as is standard for YSL, feast your eyes on some purdy packaging!

Ahhhh the fresh untouched look of a blusher waiting to be swatched...

This is a gorgeous blusher that applies like a dream using fingertips or a blusher brush but i prefer fingers (just my preference), a little goes a long way and this lasts all day! This blusher applies evenly and has a lightweight feel, the only downside as expected is the price, at £29 i feel there are alternatives out there that meet my same need - that need being for a peachy blusher that is flattering and easy to apply! One example of this is a peach blush Photoready by Revlon in shade 'pinched' retailing at £7.99 and also 'Rude' by Illamasqua at £18 which is also a fave blusher of mine!

Although YSL supersedes other brands in terms of packaging and a luxe feel the price is actually crippling and i feel other brands are able to equal if not better this product in terms of colour payoff and value for money - but hey i paid the price so who am i to moan!

Thanks for reading my blog post i hope you liked my review - lots of love always!
