YSL Kiss & Blush in Rose Libre

12/09/2014




I adore making reviews such as this one - it's the most enjoyable thing I love to do and the entire purpose of a beauty blog. Whenever a make-up or skin care item gives me butterflies in my belly, I know I've found 'the one' and each and every single time I get reminded why I love make-up so much. It's like toys for grown-ups and I easily get carried away examining all those textures, comparing colors ro such detail most people would find to be ludacris. But I just don't care as make-up is a source of joy and happiness in my eyes (and heart). Very similar experience I have with pasta and chocolate - it's addictive. So the story goes that I had a little extra cash to spend and while browsing many make-up brands offerings - as always, I stopped by the YSL's counter. Sure, you have your Chanel, Cliqniue, Shiseido, Dior etc. - I love them all too, but there's just something about YSL that makes my heart melt. By the way, I insisted on trying their Glossy Stains but, unfortunately, I guess those are the first product from YSL I don't love. They have a foul smell I couldn't get used to, they feel odd and watery on the lips and most shades make my complexion look dull or make my lips too small. Le sigh.

Veliko mi je zadovoljstvo pisati recenzije poput ove - cine samu bit jednog ovakvog bloga a i licno su mi medju najdrazima. Kada god naidjem na komad kozmetike zbog kojeg mi se pojave 'leptirici' u stomaku, odmah znam da sam naisla na pravu stvar a usput se podsjetim zbog cega toliko volim kozmetiku. Ona je nesto poput igracaka za odrasle i tako se lako izgubiti u prijatnoj izmaglici dok preispitujem sve teksture, finise, usporedjujem nijanse koje oko vecine ljudi ne bi ni prepoznalo. Kozmetiku volim otprilike kao tjesteninu i cokoladu - mogu reci da sam pomalo ovisna o njima. Uglavnom, prica ide da sam nedavno imala nesto viska novca u novcaniku i zeljela sam se pocastiti. Dok sam pregledala kozmeticke stalke mnogih brendova, kao i obicno, zaustavila sam se ispred YSL stalka. Naravno, uvijek imate Chanel, Clinique, Shiseido, Dior itd. - jako ih volim kao i vi vjerujte ali...ima nesto posebno kod YSL-a sto mi svaki put otopi srce. Usput receno, isprobavala sam prilicno uporno njihove Glossy Stainse ali, nazalost, nisu mi se dopali sto ce biti prvi YSL komad kozmetike koji mi se nije svidio otkako sam njihova vatrena beauty groupie.  Glossy Stains mi imaju prilicno odbojan miris na koji se nikako nisam mogla navici. cudna im je vodenasta tekstura a vecina nijansi cini da mi ten izgleda iscrpljeno i/ili cine da mi usne izgledaju smanjeno. Steta.



I already own a Kiss&Blush in shade Rouge Effrontee but because I love it so much and I prefer its texture to Glossy Stain any day of the week - I purchased two new shades! First one is YSL Kiss & Blush in Rose Libre (3), the other you'll see next week as a part of my 'bad girl' theme. First of all, packaging is stunning - very luxurious and definitely soothes all my senses. Rose Libre (3) is such a beautiful, soft, feminine, powdery pale pink shade. I rarely find a pink shade that suits my yellow undertone and fair to medium skin but - this one ticks all the boxes! It does look plummy when swatched but on the lips it has a more powdery pale pink vibe which looks stunning paired with the soft matte finish. The thing with Kiss&Blush is that it works perfectly as both - a lip cream and a cream blush. The doe-foot applicator has a tear drop shape and it applies the cream wonderfully following the lip shape while just a dab on the cheeks gives a healthy flush. I adore that it stays put, doesn't fade and it doesn't bleed on the lips. I get 5h of wear on my lips (2h intense wear while during the third hour it begins to fade). Entire day for the cheeks but have in mind that oily skin might reduce longevity while dehydrated and dry skin will get a stain effect, As for the finish, it's very creamy, mousse-like and pleasant. Has even a sheen at first but then turns softly matte without drying the lips. It can be sheer but is also buildable to full opacity. Fab, fab, fab! That's all I have to say. I couldn't recommend these more than I already have.

Vec posjedujem Kiss&Blush u nijansi Rouge Effrontee koji je i razlog zbog kojeg sam nabavila ne jednu, vec dvije nove nijanse. Tekstura i miris mi daleko vise odgovaraju u odnosu na Glossy Stain a sada cete vidjeti njezniju nijansu dok je vamp boja rezervisana za iducu sedmicu u sklopu serijala "zlocesta djevojka". YSL Kiss & Blush u nijansi 3 Rose Libre (75KM) ocarati ce vas pakovanjem koje odise luksuzom i svakako da u njemu uzivaju sva cula. Rose Libre (3) je tako lijepa, mekana, zenstvena, njezna puderasto-ruzicasta nijansa. Rijetko kada mogu pronaci nijasu ruzicaste koja ce odgovarati mom srednje svijetlom tenu zutog podtona. Ipak, ovo rozo zadovoljstvo uspijeva u tom naumu! Nijansa je hladnijeg podtona i cak djeluje sljivasto na swatchu dok na usnama definitivno ima taj puderasto rozi smek. Upravo ta pudrasta boja odlicno izgleda u kombinaciji sa mekanim mat finisom. Kiss&Blush je kao kozmeticki proizvod specifican po tome sto zaista jednako dobro funkcionise na usnama i obrazima. Doslovno u njemu imate kremasti ruz i kremasto rumenilo. Spuzvasti aplikator u obliku suze je prilagodjen obliku usana i nema nespretnog nanosenja dok je samo tackica na svakom obrazu dovoljna za osvjezen ten. Trajnost je odlicna - na usnama traje barem nekih 5h (prva 2h intenzivno, treci sat pocinje blijediti) i ne prelazi okvir usana a na obrazima je prisutan cijeli dan. Ipak, imajte u vidu da su mi obrazi dehidrirani sto znaci da bi vjerovatno na masnoj kozi imao ipak nesto kracu trajnost (na suhoj kozi se ponasa kao stain). Sto se tice teksture, kremasta je i blago pjenasta te jako prijatna. Na pocetku ima i sjaj dok kasnije prelazi u mat finis. Moze biti skroz lagano nanesen ali i nadograditi se do potpune prekrivnosti. Jednostavno je savrsen, savrsen, savrsen! Da li postoji jos nesto cime bih ga mogla 'prodati'?
