Today I have for you another two of YSL's Baby Doll Kiss and Blush for review. I'm really lucky to have sweet friends who know me so well and understand my craving for makeup. Thank you M for Rouge Effrontee. Kiss!
In my previous reviews of Fuchsia Desinvolte and Pink Hedoniste, I find the lighter shades to look better on me as blush than lip shades.
Corail Affranchi is a gorgeous peachy orange shade.
Rouge Effronte looks like a coral red to me.
This is how Rouge Effronte layered over my Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Pencil in Orange Red looks like on my lips.
I still prefer using these as blushes instead of lip products because I just can't get past the fact that if I use the applicator on my lips, the applicator is going back into the bottle and perhaps contaminate the rest of the product. I'm also just too lazy to use a separate lip brush to scoop out the product. I might put in the extra effort for Rouge Effronte but not Corail Affranchi, it is just too light as a lip shade on me.
That being said, I think these a lovely textures for a blush. They blend well into a matte veil of colour and it stays on for about 5 hours through sweat.
I don't like them much as lip products because even though they aren't drying but they don't feel balmy or moisturizing enough for me (I'm kinda spoilt that way).
