YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush Corail Affranchi #7

I am always a little skeptical when I hear that a product can be used for two purposes, the lazy girl in me LOVES the idea, the practical girl really wants to see if it will work well.  YSL recently launched their Kiss and Blush and as the name implies its a lip and a cheek product.

I have the shade Corail Affranchi no 7* to show you today.

The consistency of the product is really interesting its soft and light and reminds me almost of a moouse in consistency.  It is in fact air whipped which explains the feeling.  There are 12 colours in the range and they cost €30.00 each - expensive for a single product, not bad when its a cheek and lip product.  

I think YSL create some of the best lip products, you might pay premium beauty prices for them but you get a premium beauty product.  

I was sure that I would prefer to apply the product one way rather than both, and I was right.  I much prefer to use the Kiss and Blush as a blush rather than on my lips (I feel the same about my beloved Stila Convertible Colors I much prefer to use them on the cheeks).  This might have more to do with the fact that my lips tend to be dry and products that feel a little different (as I mentioned earlier this feels like whipped moouse) my lips get confused.  I definitely think with the Kiss and Blush is a case of "its not you its me" so I would suggest trying it on your lips. 

I am slightly obsessed with the shade Corail Affranchi - while I don't tend to pick up corals - I am right for the hot pink shades this shade is just perfection.  Its a coral colour but veers towards a deeper terracotta shade (without going too terracotta).  In fact its the perfect shade, your cheeks look alive and warmer without bronzer.  Corail Affranchi gives me that "I Feel Pretty" vibe when I wear it (I try and not sing it to myself...promise).  I love how alive and natural it makes you look - if I am being honest I tend to get smug face when I wear it.  I also love how the lips and cheeks compliment each other without looking too matchy matchy.

For me the Kiss and Blush are winners - in the winter I must try a deeper shade.  Have you tried YSL Kiss and Blush?
