Really I should call this Lipstick Diary "what I wore that day, that day, that day, that day, and that day too. And all those other days." Right now, this fantastic satin-matte lip colour is my very favouritest in the world, and it's a time-saver too. Well, all my lip shades are time savers because I wear them on my cheeks as well as lips. But this is YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush Fuschia Desinvolte (Nº 1), the shade I wanted most out of the whole gorgeous collection. (Thank you, YSL Fairy!)
ysl baby doll kiss & blush: still. geeking. out.
Yep, I geek out about YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush a lot -- like yesterday in my Benefit Majorette post, as a matter of fact. And you can see YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush Rose Frivole (Nº 2) and Rose Epicurien (Nº 9) here along with the shade chart. But this, YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush Fuchsia Desinvolte (Nº 1), is the one I needed most. I die over this fuchsia. It gives my complexion so. much. life.
And here's how it looks on my cheeks. I adore Fuchsia Desinvolte because I need so little other makeup with it. Okay, so there's some concealer and BB, and a touch of bronzer to give my face shape. Then brows, lashes, a little liner. Final touches: a tiny dab of Fuchsia Desinvolte on each cheek, a careful application on the lips. Oh, another reason to love: the modern satin-matte finish looks particularly striking against summer-dewy skin.
Overall, YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush ($45 at thebay.com) lasts quite nicely and comfortably on lips (and cheeks -- zero stickiness). If you sip from a straw, though, or from a glass or cup, you'll need a touch up. And the best way to touch up with YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush is remove it entirely and apply a fresh coat, otherwise you get a dry-ish, cakey finish.
Seriously, why don't you already own YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush Fuchsia Desinvolte? You totes should. Hey, if you get it/have it, let's do a buddy photo!
