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

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!

Makeup Wars Spring Blush1

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.

shu uemura Rouge Unlimited Satin Matte in Beige Topaz | Spring 2014 | Photos, Swatches, Review

shu uemura Topaz Beige1

shu uemura Satin Matte Lipsticks have a wonderfully light, creamy formula. Not the usual dry texture you expect from a matte lipstick. Well shu uemura has released a new version of their Rouge Unlimited Lipstick. The shu uemura Rouge Unlimited Satin Matte. It has the lovely shu uemura matte formula we love with the addition of micro fine pearl shimmer to give the lips an elegant dimension. The Spring 2014 Bijoux Collection includes two shades of this new formula. Pink Opal and Beige Topaz. I have Beige Topaz to introduce you to.

shu uemura Topaz Beige2

shu uemura describes Beige Topaz as a beige-orange but I don’t find it orange at all. I see it as more of a pinky peach beige.

shu uemura Topaz Beige4

It has the lovely light yet creamy texture that I love and the combination of matte with fine pearl gives a unique effect. I didn’t think I was going to like it at first. I was thinking the whole idea was kind of confused. Either be matte or be a shimmer. Make up your mind! But the look is really neat and I am sold. I will show you how it looks in the context of a whole look with an upcoming face of the day post featuring some yet to be reviewed products.

The shu uemura Spring 2014 Bijoux Collection is limited edition and became available as of January 2014 at Holt Renfrew, select Sephora and Hudson’s Bay locations and at www.shuuemura.ca.
