I love opening the golden boxes of Yves Saint Laurent makeup, knowing what beautiful treasures lay inside. The latest product to join the YSL hall of fame is this beautiful Flower Crush Blush Palette, adorned with intricate golden detail and a delicate pink blush. My heart started fluttering when I first saw this, the palette looking more like a piece of art than a piece of makeup. This limited edition palette holds the perfect colour to achieve that fresh faced flush that looks like you’ve just stepped in from a cold chill. It’s incredibly pale for a blush, looking almost more of a highlighter than a traditional blush colour, but the three complementary hues it’s made up of ensure the powder is incredibly natural and versatile.
Although a dusty pink is the main colour, it also contains a peachy nude
and a slightly darker hue of pink that enables the wearer to perfect
the ‘natural flush’ look. Incredibly versatile, this can be worn above
the cheekbones as a subtle highlighter or buffed in on the apple of the
cheeks for a delicate flush; it’s the perfect every day product to have you looking healthy and glowing during the colder months. The texture is incredibly light and subtle (so much so it was impossible to photograph effectively,) meaning it’s great for makeup novices and professionals alike. Unsurprisingly, this is already a sell-out online, but if you’re quick you may still be able to nab one of the last few on YSL counters nationwide.
The YSL Flower Crush Blush Palette is available from Selfridges and YSL counters priced £42.50, although it’s currently sold out online.
