Last month I received a love package from Lisa of Makeup and Life and it was an enormously generous love package. I was immensely touched by her generosity and it really helped to brighten my mood as it arrived at at time of some stress from worrying about my son and his fiancee who live in Fukushima.
One of the items that I received was the YSL Touche Blush in #5 Black Current. I have never owned anything YSL, which is indeed a very elegant line of products.
This blush is a powder blush that is so luxurious and ultra-fine. The unique packaging of it combines the powder with a puff which is supposed to allow you to apply the powder with a "luminous and natural glow".
The net weight of it is 0.15 oz./4.5g. #5 Black Current is a beautiful dark berry color. Berry is a color that I used to use a long time ago but haven't used dark colors in recent years. It is very much pigmented and I think this would be lovely to wear when going out at night. The powder is indeed ultra-fine and glides on beautifully. I did have some problems applying it with the puff since I've used only brushes to apply any type of powders in years and years. I also think that my problem with using the puff is that it was the first time using it so it hasn't even spread throughout the puff. Personally I think that it's a huge waste of this luxurious powder blush to squeeze it into the puff as the puff is quite thick. I will open it up and use the powder sparingly. There is a lot of product in the container and since it's a dark color and highly pigmented, I will be using only a little at a time. This will probably last me for the rest of my life!
Thank you again Lisa for such a wonderful surprise!
