This is my HG blush, but it seems this colour has been d/c :(
I am NW5 and use Benetint if I want a 'flush' look, but I use this every single day to warm up my face and give me a healthy glow without looking TOO made up. It has enough reflective particles to make my skin look flawless without being shiny, it photographs super natural, and the peachy-pink-gold looks good all year round. Also it lasts forever, and doesn't crumble when the middle wears down.
A must - I will be stockpiling!

With its shimmery effect, it highlights the cheeks very well. cheeks look somewhat matt and smooth. The only thing is that I have to apply quite a lot to be able to see at least some "blushing" effect. so, if you are in for the "natural glow", then this product is good.

I received this in a swap. I have been wanting to try the YSL blush variations for so long. I have two of the touche blushes and love them both. I am not as pleased with this item, however. While the color is gorgeous (on my skin, a pale shimmery pinky-rose) the pigment leaves something to be desired. I'll continue to use it as a subtle highlighter but as a blush, I have many other brands (such as Cargo, Tony and Tina, and even E.L.F) that I prefer. I wouldn't purchase other shades of this. 3 for the color. This may be okay for a PPP daytime look, perhaps.

Price-wise, I didn't think this was pricey considering it's a high-end makeup brand. I got mine in Singapore's fab airport, which didn't dent my wallet badly. The small rectangular compact comes in a black velvet pouch - stylish YSL logo over gold background. This is the perfect size to carry around, even if I don't need to touch up on anything! Bought this in late 2005/early 2006.
The pigments are blushing pink interspersed with some gold and apricot particles. It works well on my pale Asian yellow-toned skin, and it was love at first sight (and still is) since finding a powder blush that gives me that I'm-in-love-but-still-rational look is bordering on impossible. I tend to use this blush on its own, on top of Chanel's facial sunblock. It has a very subtle shimmer that doesn't look out of place during office hour yet goes well into the evening; it's a barely-there shimmer, so pretty! :)) Gives me an in-love glow better than NARS Orgasm IMO. To apply, I use MAC's #129 SH brush. I don't use the puff as puffs tend to streak powder across, but I keep the square plastic protector inside to keep the mirror side clean.
Overall, I'm very happy with this powder blush, and I would repurchase again... but at my current rate of usage, I don't think it's going to be anytime soon! Yay!

#12 - Pink Fusion - is a very nice pale rose shimmery blush, I would say more a highlighter than a real blush. My skin tone is very fair but I can hardly notice any color when I put that on my face, this blush is more like a luminous veil over your cheeks. Tiny particles reflect light so it is better for evening when you want to accentuate some parts of your face and add it some glow. Sophisticated and cute...

beautiful gorgeous blush. great for a natural glow. i purchased this with the #11 but i use this on the apples of my cheek. #11 is simply for shadow.
after letting many a salesperson try all types of blushes on me (i was prepping for my wedding day - have sampled benefit, tarte, bobbi brown, laura mercier and stila) i have to say that this one is the best. just perfect. yes, it's pricey but the money is well spent.

The YSL blushes are the best in the market if you ask me. This has two squares of light peach and two squares of lifgt rose. I'm a true PPP and this blush brightens my complexion so nicely that I find myself using this religiously in the mornings to achieve that natural glow.

This is a gorgeous blush. It's a light coral pink, with soft shimmer and glow. Has the 4 squares of slighly different shades that combine on your brush. I have always found the glamour and style of YSL packaging so irresistable, that's really what you pay for. They are exquisite to pull out of your handbag and use.
