I know they say it’s what’s on the inside that counts, but let’s face it, sometimes the packaging just sweeps you off your feet. The Yves Saint Laurent The Street and I Collection for Spring 2017 has a downtown city, graffiti inspired feel and is such a playful, colorful, breath of fresh air. I can’t help but smile when I see the shades and packaging featured in the collection.
The YSL Spring 2017 Face Palette Collector – I Have A Blush On You ($59 CAD) is a vibrant orange toned coral that will bring life to your look.
The brick wall embossment with the YSL logo on the blush is so fun. I hated to disturb it, but I had to get this pretty shade on my cheeks!
The blush formula is lovely. The pigmentation is beautiful. It has a satin matte finish that melds beautifully with the skin. There is no powderyness or heavy feel. It is very light with a beautiful translucent quality. It is a very vibrant bold shade but can easily be applied gently with a brush for a more subtle effect or built up for more impact. Either way you choose to apply it it applies evenly and blends with ease. Often vibrant shades like this can come off patchy when applied lightly on my fair skin but this performed beautifully. I can see reaching for this a lot in the spring and summer months.
There are so many cool new launches in the YSL Spring 2017 Collection including a new Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Kiss & Blush Duo Stick that offers two shades in one stick for use on both lips and cheeks. There’s also a Keep An Eye On Me Collector Eye Palette and new shades of Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick, Gloss Volupté, and nail polish. All with a focus on vibrant shades of orange and fuchsia.
The collection launches in January 2017 so keep an eye out for it! Is this blush calling your name?
