Makeup Wars | My Favourite Spring/Summer Blushes Featuring YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush, shu uemura Tint in Gelato Reviews & More

Makeup Wars Spring Blush1

When spring comes I tend to turn to sheerer foundations and tinted moisturizers with natural dewy finishes. This brings with it the transition to cream blushes and cheek stains. Products that look more natural in the harsh (and so desperately yearned for) rays of the sun and more resistant to hotter, more humid, weather. Bring it on!

Here are some new and old favourites I will be turning to this spring and summer.

The new Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Kiss & Blush ($45 CAD/$40 US) has a light airy mousse texture that blends effortlessly into the cheeks. The finish is a soft satin matte that gives cheeks a natural veil of colour. On lips soft satin matte finish on the lips is comfortable and light without feeling dry and there is no stickiness. I like them best applied lightly for a natural hint of colour. I have the shades No 5 Rouge Effrontee and No 7 Corail Affranchi. A fun thing about these new YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush is the ability to mix and combine any of the 12 available shades for a for a play on colour.

The new shu uemura Tint in Gelato ($28 CAD/US) is another light mousse textured cream product with a bit more of a dewy creamy finish that the YSL Baby Doll but still a soft matte. They offer beautiful blendable pigment that applies and wears beautifully and offer a lovely stain. They wear beautifully on the lips with no stickiness and a moisturizing, yet matte, finish.
