YSL Creme de Blush in Velvety Peach

YSL Creme de Blush in Velvety Peach ($38) is a cream to powder blush, with a luxuriously soft finish. Velvety Peach is a slightly warm, peachy coral with no hint of shimmer or glitter. The packaging is beautiful, slightly smaller than what I had expected, but no issues with that, as I've never actually finished a blush.

I love the silky smooth texture, the soft finish and the color of Velvety Peach against my skintone. It is quite pigmented as it is, but definitely sheers out to a peachy looking stain. Cream to powder finishes don't look too flattering on my dry skin, but this one has a slight sheen without the flat matte finish, so I quite like it. It also is very long wearing and is perfectly buildable for a stronger pop of color. Color wise, Velvety Peach is a softer, more toned down version of Bobbi Brown's Calypso Coral, sans the dewy finish. There's a slight,  fruity scent, the same one that's present in a lot of other YSL products. Overall, pricey but definitely worth checking out at least a color or two - the finish is beautiful, the formula is super easy to work with on just about any skin type!

What are your thoughts on YSL's Creme de Blush in Velvety Peach?


  1. It looks so good! Really pretty on you :)


  2. This shade looks great on you. I wish YSL blushes were cheaper here in Sydney. Btw what shade of lippy are you wearing?
