YSL Kiss & Blush in Rouge Effrontée

When something gets featured as a Thing of Beauty here at MB, that means that I'm most likely head over heels with a certain beauty item. This one was coveted for a while before I made the purchase as I've heard contradictory information about it.  YSL can do no wrong in my eyes and guided by the trust and respect I have for my favorite high-end brand, I've gathered my courage and made my purchase. YSL Kiss & Blush goes by the parole ‘Kiss your cheeks, blush your lips!’ and this playful vibe really catches on. For those who don't know, this is supposed to be a lip and cheek tint with a matte finish. I have struggled to choose only one shade (especially when YSL recommends mixing and matching) but I've finally settled for YSL Kiss & Blush in Rouge Effrontée, a gorgeous cherry red hue. I will come back to the color as I'll also most likely purchase another shade for fall but let's look at the fabulous packaging, shall we? It's so retro yet modern and chic at the same time. Reminiscent of mini perfume bottles and fancy nail polishes, I find Kiss & Blush to have one of most beautiful packagings. But then, YSL always does.

Kada nesto bude predstavljeno u sklopu posta ‘Utjelovljenje ljepote’ na MB blogu, to automatski znaci da sam zaljubljena u taj proizvod. Doticnu beauty slasticu sam nakon medijskog predstavljanja zeljela jako dugo vremena prije nego sam se odlucila na kupovinu, ponajvise zato sto sam citala kontradiktorne dojmove. YSL u mojim ocima jednostavno ne moze pogrijesiti te sam vodjena postovanjem i povjerenjem u svoj najdrazi high-end brend, napokon sakupila hrabrost i kupila dugo zeljeni proizvod. YSL Kiss & Blush linija je vodjena parolom ‘Poljubite obraze, zarumenite usne!’ i ova vesela misao je sprovedena u samim proizvodima. Za one koji nisu upuceni, ovaj ljepotan je namijenjen koristenju na usnama ali i obrazima te je mat finisa. Bilo mi je tesko odabrati samo jednu nijansu (narocito kada YSL ohrabruje kombinovanje razlicitih boja) no na kraju sam se odlucila za YSL Kiss & Blush u nijansi Rouge Effrontée, prekrasnu crvenkastu nijansu tresnje. Kasnije cu obratiti posebnu paznju na samu nijansu a vjerovatno cu nabaviti jos jednu boju na jesen no, fokusirajmo se na pakovanje. Tako je retro ali i moderno u isto vrijeme te jako sik. Podsjeca na mini parfemske bocice ali i skupocjene lakove za nokte, Kiss & Blush ima pakovanje koje mi se licno jako dopada. No ipak, kada je bilo drugacije sa YSL-om?

You get 10ml of this lip and blush tint for $40 which might squeeze out a gasp but YSl never was a place to save your pennies. It's about pure decadence and luxury. As far as the packaging goes, its pretty and playful appeal isn't the only thing it offers – all eyes are on the applicator wand which is very interesting. It looks like a classic doe-applicator, except it has a slight oval shape to it with a pointy tip to help line lips better + there is this pearl at the middle that deposits most color. Such a peculiar design yet it works so well as the pearl dabs color at the center of your lips while the tip lines them perfectly. You get the precise application, even distribution and a punchy color all at one go. Kiss & Blush has a specific, floral/fruity scent that lots of YSL lipsticks share (and I love). Now, Kiss & Blush is very versatile in many ways you can wear it. The matte texture feels like a soft, moisturizing mousse and it isn't chalky which is what I usually fear of all matte lip products. It has a matte finish but doesn't feel drying or look cakey. You can play up your lips or your cheeks and you can even achieve different finishes even. If you apply it straight onto center of your lips in dotting motion, you can pat it on the rest of the lips with your fingers and achieve a light, powdery tint. The same goes for the cheeks. That soft look on lips and cheeks is perfect for every day. You can also apply a nice lip balm (such as lip butters from Korres) underneath and get a more sheeny vibe which will add more gloss to the lips. Applying a highlighter to the tops of your cheekbones does have the same impact for the cheeks.

Dobijete 10ml proizvoda za 74KM u Inoma parfumeriji (SCC). Ukoliko ste zastale sa disanjem na pomen cijene, nije neobicno no YSL nikada nije bio mjesto na kojem se stede novcici. Novcem placate cistu dekadenciju i luksuz. Koliko god pakovanje bilo interesantno i zaigrano, atraktivan dizajn nije jedini adut – svi pogledi su uprti na aplikator koji je jako interesantan. Na prvi pogled djeluje kao klasicni spuzvasti aplikator nesto krace drske no ipak je blago ovalnog oblika, uz blago zasiljeni vrh +  u sredini se nalazi kuglica poput malog bisera u kojoj se nalazi najveca kolicina proizvoda po nanosenju. Neobican dizajn, svakako, no iznenadjujuce je funkcionalan posto taj mali biser u sredini sadrzi najvise proizvoda i nanosi ga na sredinu usana (ne mimo), dok blago zasiljeni vrh aplikatora dosta olaksava iscrtavanje usana te nanosenje djeluje dosta uredno bez mnogo truda. Kiss & Bluss ima dosta specifican cvijetno/vocni miris sa kojim ste se mozda susrele i kod prethodnih YSL ruzeva za usne a meni se dopada. Kiss & Blush je dosta zanimljiv proizvod koji mozete koristiti na vise nacina, kreirajuci razlicite makeup look-ove. Mat tekstura samog proizvoda je na dodir poput mekane, hidratantne pjene te nije isusujuce formule sto me oduvijek odbijalo kod proizvoda za usne mat finisa. Ne isusuje usne, niti izgleda kredasto na njima. Sa ovim proizvodom mozete naglasiti obraze ili usne te cak postici razlicit finis uz mali trik. Ako nanesete koju tackicu onim malim biserom na sredinu usana, mozete boju razmazati preko ostatka usana utapkavajuci pigment cistim prsticima. Na taj nacin dobijete lagan, mekan puderast efekat na usnama a isto vrijedi i za obraze. Taj njezni izgled je idealan za svaki dan. Mozete ispod da nanesete balzam za usne (poput Korres butera za usne) i time ce Kiss & Blush imati njezni sjaj. Nanosenjem iluminatora na vrhove jagodica mozete postici isti sjajni efekat na obrazima.

Finally, you can go all out and apply a generous coat on your lips making them into a full-on statement lip. Layering is a good idea for girls scared of color. That way you can assess how much intensity you're comfortable with. Layering is the key when applying Kiss & Blush onto cheeks. I've read that some users complain that it leaves a strong tint on places of cheeks where applied and after you try to massage it from the center outwards – you get a haze whilst the intensity remains at the center. I find that it's hard to mess up with Kiss & Blush in the stated way as it doesn't have a juicy, wet formula so that it clings onto skin momentarily. As it is very airy, light and mousse-like it almost drifts upon skin until you pat it or massage it away with clean fingers. I find that fingers are better than brushes with this texture. I blend my dots with such ease and they create such a believable flush. Rouge Effrontée seems intimidating in the packaging and it really is an intense cherry-red hue but it looks very natural on the cheeks as it mimics the natural flush I get from e.g.running. My lips are naturally dark and pigmented so I needed an intense color and this one fits the bill perfectly. I love it! I find that this color could look flattering on all skin tones. I actually like the monochrome feel you get with Kiss & Blush when wearing it on lips and cheeks at the same time. It makes me look very put together and I always keep it in my handbag. Wearability is quite good as it stays put all day on my cheeks while it scores solid 4h on my lips. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend Kiss & Blush to all ladies wishing to treat themselves – as we all know, YSL is the perfect place for a treat!

I za kraj ostaje nanosenje proizvoda u punom sjaju i intenzitetu. Nanosenje u slojevima je dobra ideja za dame koje nisu hrabre kada su izrazene boje u pitanju, tako da mogu bez gresaka ocijeniti sa kojim intenzitetom na licu su najsretnije. Kiss & Blush je najefektnije nanijeti u slojevima na usne i nadograditi boju do primjetnog intenziteta. Citala sam par primjedbi glede nanosenja na obraze poput rumenila u smislu da, kada se nanese par tackica na obraze koje cete kasnije razmazati tapkanjem po cijelom obrazu – na mjestu gdje smo nanijeli Kiss & Blush ostaju tacke a ostatak proizvoda se razmaze u neprimjetnu izmaglicu. Moje iskustvo je potpuno suprotno. Posto Kiss & Blush nije socne, ‘vlazne’ teksture koja bi mozda ucinila da se pigment ‘uhvati’ za kozu gdje je nanesen – vec naprotiv, pjenaste je teksture koja skoro pa lebdi preko koze dok je ne razmazete prstima, jednostavno mi je nanosenje tako lagano i bez greske. Takodjer, primjetila sam da su cisti prstici bolji za nanosenje od kistova zbog pjenastog kvaliteta proizvoda. Tackice se blendaju sa takvom lakocom ispod toplih prstica i kreiraju se prirodno rumeni obrascici. Rouge Effrontée je nijansa koja djeluje preintenzivno i zaista je dosta pigmentirana tresnje-crvena boja u pitanju no djeluje jako prirodno na obrazima. Usne su mi prirodno tamne i crvene tako da mi odgovara dobro pigmentiran proizvod poput ovog. Ovo mi je tako krasan proizvod i jako sam zadovoljna kupovinom. Mislim da bi ova crvenkasta nijansa mogla pristajati vecini tonova koze. Dopada mi se monokromni efekat kada nosim Kiss & Blush istovremeno na usnama i obrazima te je ovaj malisan u svako doba u mom neseseru. Trajnost je jako dobra, kao rumenilo se zadrzava doslovno cijeli radni dan na obrazima dok na usnama ostaje solidna 4h. Preporucila bih Kiss & Blush svim damama koje zele da se malo pocaste jer, kao sto znamo, YSL je savrseno mjesto za to!
