Hello to all you beautiful people,

Today I am going to review the very famous YVES Saint Laurent Blush variation-cinnamon rose which is also shade 4. I really love this product as its quality and palette is no doubt the best in the market and is desired by many. Even though I don’t normally go for blushers on a day to day basis, but for parties or get together it is a must. These are the times when I get to use my Yves Saint Laurent blush variation. It has two different textures, Matte and iridescent on the pallet which brings out the cheekbones and highlights the sharp structures of the face. It is known for its natural look and merges with any skin tone without giving it a heavy look or making the face look cakey.

Availability: Available in India

Product description: Yves Saint Laurent BLUSH VARIATION combines two textures, matte and iridescent, that blend together to highlight the cheekbones with a veil of color. The exclusive formula, which contains self-adapting pigments, catches all the intensity of light and transforms it into a vibrant source of color.


How I prefer to apply it

I apply this blusher on my entire cheekbone. I normally cover up the upper part of the cheek with making the middle part darker and the edges lighter. I even use this as an eyeshadow because of its natural pallet and because of it amazing ability to blend in well with makeup without making it look too loud or cakey.

My experience with Yves Saint Laurent Blush Variation Cinnamon Rose

This is my most loved and favorite product ever. The quality of this blusher is undoubtedly the best in the market and is also my personal favorite. It has two different textures one being matte and one being iridescent which when applied gives a contoured effect and makes the makeup look flawless. I use this blusher only when I am getting ready for a party or an outing and it’s not a part of my everyday makeup routine. The main reason as to why I personally adore this product is because it has the power to suit all sorts of makeup styles. I personally feel there are very less blushers in the market that have the ability to be worn on almost all occasions and Yves Saint Laurent is one of them. It gives a natural effect to the face and makes the person applying it look fresh and glowing. If applied darker it gives a party look. I normally apply only on my cheekbone and a little bit on the tips of my nose to make my face look natural. I use it even as an eye shadow pallet and it compliments my makeup completely. Its texture is soft and smooth and spread well on the skin. It suits all skin types. As I have oily skin I am little wary about which products to use as I had severe acne until recently and it has left unwanted marks on my cheeks, thus it has made me apply blushers really less as it makes me worry about acne again. In the case of Yves Saint Laurent, I am assured of not getting any acne as it suits my oily skin tone really well.

Overall Performance of Yves Saint Laurent Blush Variation Cinnamon Rose

The only drawback in this product is that it is really expensive. For a normal college going student like me, I have to think twice before buying this product only because of its price. I am sure there must be good quality and amazing blushes in the market at a much cheaper cost but I would always cherish this product as it is the best compared to all. Its smooth satin texture doesn’t make my makeup feel heavy and even stays for a really long duration.


Would I recommend this?


Value for money

It is quite pricey but totally worth every penny spent on it.
