YSL Creme de Blush in 4 Audacious Orange Review, Photos and Swatches. Rave

Finally I am going to review the gorgeous cream blush which is called Audacious Orange and which is a pure orange colour! It is a part of the YSL summer 2011 makeup collection.

I’ve already reviewed the brown eye shadow duo and the Volupte Sheer Candy Lip Balms.

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that that I am a huge fan of cream blushes and I can never have too many of them.

So if I say that now this blush in my top five, trust me, it means a lot. A lot of people are fans of YSL Creme de Blush and I completely understand them.

I love the package, it is very chic and luxurious and is does look like a high end product.

The blush itself has a lovely light consistency which is not greasy or sticky at all. It is easy to apply and blend it into the skin.This product also smells nice, something floral if you ask me.

I know that some of you are probably scared of the blush which is called Audacious Orange and which looks so bright but there is no reason for that. It gives the most beautiful shade for summer, out of all my coral/orange/peach blushes I like this one the best right now.

So here is the swatch and the comparison with other blushes. The first one is ChaCha by Benefit and the other one is YSL.

Ok, I know that it looks a bit scary but only because I’ve packed the blush so that you can see the colour. As you can see, ChaCha has some red undertones compared to Audacious Orange.

Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation Review, Photos and Swatches

I’ve already posted a preview of the Illamsqua Sin Base Foundation. So today, after trying it out, I can  share my opinion.

I was very curious to try this foundation as both Illamasqua team and fans of the brand were raving about it.

I was sent the samples of three shades to try.  So I have #3 (yellow undertone), #4 (yellow/pink undertone) and #5 (pink undertone).

Although I felt in love with this foundation from the very first time I’ve tried it, I’ve decided to wait and use each shade for at least one day to give my opinion.

As you probably remember, I haven’t tried the original BB Creams so I can’t really compare the effects but I can give my opinion on the Skin Base.

This foundation is a pleasure to use, it glides on the skin and it’s easy to blend. I also liked that the product lasted for the whole day on me and did not make my dry skin look cakey at all; it did not enhance the dry patches which often happens.

If you don’t have any major problems – this foundation will be enough as it gives a beautiful natural finish with a nice coverage which is buildable.  Plus it won’t look as if you are

YSL Eye Shadow Duo in 35 Caramel Tan/Burnt Brown Review, Photos, Swatches

So I’ve promised to review some products from the YSL summer 2011 makeup collection that I’ve mentioned here.

I’ve already reviewed the new Volupte Sheer Candy lip balms which I adore  so now it’s time to write about the eye shadow palette and the blush.

Today I will tell you about the eye shadow duo in  35 Caramel Tan/Burnt Brown (Terre Halee/ Brun Embrase).These eye shadows come in a signature gold YSL packaging with two sponges.

And I actually use the sponges when I apply the eye shadows as they pick just the right amount of the product.  I  don’t like brushes like MAC 217 with these eye shadows because they don’t pick up the right amount of  the product which leads to a very sheer application. This is why some people may think that YSL eye shadows are not pigmented. They are, you just have to find the best way to use them. You can also try using them with a slightly dampened brush.

Here is the palette in different light

As I already said, I apply with the sponges from the palette and then blend with a blending brush.

As for the texture, these eye shadows are
