|YSL Crème de Blush #4 Audacious Orange|
L to R: Heavy Swatch, Blended Out
I picked up the shade #4 Audacious Orange (at least that's what it's called on Sephora.com, on YSLBeautyUS.com #4 is called Bright Coral) which is a true bright orange. The texture seems to be a hybrid that falls somewhere in between a cream and a mouse. Between the packaging and the texture, I imagine that fingers are the best and only real way to apply this blush.
On my oily skin, this blush was still going strong after seven hours and I imagine you could up the lasting power in hot weather by setting it with a powder blush (perhaps Tarte Tipsy?), but given that it applies so easily with fingers, you could also throw the pot of blush in your bag and do touch ups on the go. At $38 USD, this blush is on the higher price range, but with it's pigmentation, only the smallest amount is needed so I am sure it will last a long time.
