Jeri G: Blush Radiance is the best blush I've ever tried. #3 is my favorite and I'm so upset they have discontinued it. It looks purple in the compact, but it goes on so beautifully and naturally., especially for those of us with very light skin. All the blushes have a slightly shimmery quality that is gorgeous without any glitter or too much shine. It's perfect; it's blends easily and won't move during the day. Jan 25, 2014

laura b asked: i usually use blush variation No4 and recently purchased blush radiance no4 and they are totally different colors. What would be compatible to blush variation no4? thank you Sep 30, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Natalie k: Hi Laura,

I have been using blush radiance No. 4 and yes it is a different color than what it appears but I tried and it looks great on me. Give me a touch of a pinkish color to highlight my high cheek bones and it looks GREAT!! I get a lot of complaints that I have a nice rosey tome to my cheeks. I have oive skin and live in the south so I seem always darker then normal anyway even in the winter. I love to sit outside on my porch which I am in the shade and still get tan, and No 4 Radiance gives me again a very nice glow to my face. So don't be afraid try it and you will ove it!!! Also I high recommend the lengthing massacara, NOTHING COMPARES to this great product. I have tiied many and am in love with all of YvesSaintLaurent products. To put in a simple form, I have to steal back my YvesSaintLaurent from my daughter. LOL You really cannot go wrong and I believe you will love the Radiance No. 4

Angela S: Hi Laura - I purchased the blush radiance #1 - it appears peachy in its case, but I find it goes on the skin as peachy-pink. I am fair - I use the TEINT MAJEUR foundation in sand to get a better idea of my skin tone. The next time I probably will purchase No. 4 which is what you have. I really like this blush and it goes on nicely and stays on all day. Again, the #1 color goes on the my skin with a hint of pink notwithstanding its brown-orange color in the container. I hope this helps. Angela S Oct 1, 2012

A shopper asked: is this oil free ? did it break anyone out ? does it look natural , sorry im a begginner with blush Nov 12, 2012

Sherryl Ava H: I have Blush Radiance in 3. I do not see any oil in the list of ingredients. This blush is very natural. You can use the darker color and then use the lighter color as a highlighter. You can swirl a brush over both colors to blend the subtle shimmer. You can use each color alone. The look is sheer and soft no matter how you use it. Color 3 is beautiful as well as unusual. I love it! Nov 12, 2012
Reply to Sherryl Ava Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Nabila S: I am not sure if it is oil free but I doubt it will make you break out as it is a powder and of good quality given that it is YSL.

Whether it looks natural or not depends on the color you get. The blush has two sections of flat color and 2 sections of shimmery color so the overall color comes out looking great.

mary s: I am sadly not dark olive. Pale and washed out usually. What I love about this palette…1. Not sparkly 2. There isn't just one color in the palette and it somehow looks perfectly wonderful on. Just choose a color that looks good for your skin.
Hope you enjoy it.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Angela S: I purchased No. 1 - I tend to have variations of pink and yellow in my skin tone. This worked well - it goes on nicely and it appears lightweight on the skin. I am not sure what variation #7 is, but I purchased variation #1. A great feature that I found is that once you apply, it does not fade and or need to be reapplied for the day. I trust this helps.

Johanna B asked: I have a pink undertone and ash blonde hair- strawberry blonde when summer is here. I am definitely not as fair as Ginta Lapina and I do tan when summer. I can sometimes get away with even a foundation in the tone nude. When winter comes nude will however be little to yellow for my skin undertone cool pink.

Which colour should I opt for? The lilac looks amazing..

Bridget A: I have the No.2 and use it for a peachy glow after bronzer. Love, love the subtle shimmer and brightness of color that just a touch is all it takes. It just depends on if you're working a warm or cool palette on your face...if you are just looking for something similar to your own coloring I'd probably pick No.4 for a light pink shimmer, which also could be used after bronzer if desired, or No. 6 would have more color, but still pretty neutral. I just was looking for a peach color in particular for me and I really love the No.2 for that. Hope this helps! Jun 25, 2012

Jungeun K: I recently bought the blush radiance (in rose) and I haven't tried the creme de blush but I absolutely love this blush! I am also Asian and I think you and I probably have the same skin type =) There's no need to use a lot of it, I just take my brush and run it across the pellet twice, shake off excess, and brush on my cheeks and I do this maybe twice and I am done. It comes with a velvet pouch and a small brush. Only flaw is that I wish the brush would be bigger but other than that it's great!. I hope that helps. Mar 9, 2012

pam p: thank you so much for the reply, it helped a lot.. well. maybe i'll buy the creme and the powder, so i have choices either daytime or night time use.. or maybe even same color that you have since were both asian.. its just so bad that i cant buy it here in the philippines and always need to ask my friends to buy it for me, so its even more expensive since i have to pay the shipping.. i hope you wont mind if i need to ask another question,i just really need to know which color on their creme de blush is better for fair yellow undertone skin? silky praline or powdery rose? thanks again.. God bless you :)) Mar 10, 2012
Siqi T: I have both radiance and creme de blush these two cheek blushes. The radiance one is more natural looking, but the creme de blush is longer lasting. Honestly, I think both of them are amazing products! What I recommend is to buy both of them. For a long lasting good looking, apply the creme blush on the cheek first, then cover a little bit of the radiance blush on the top. Mar 14, 2012

Blush Radiance

Overall rating

Better than expected. I ordered the color that looks purple because I have the purple-ish pink Golden Gloss. What a beautiful set together! They both are very wearable, although may appear not to be. The blush looks so smooth and radiant on my skin. It wakes up my whole face. The color is so amazing, trust me. I would like to explore more of these, but the purple is just fabulous !

This blush is very natural looking, my only complaint is the small brush that is in the velvet pouch. You really need to have a blush brush to obtain all the benefits of this blush. I still gave it 5 stars because of the superior blend ability of the product. Would recommend to friends.

YSL Blush Radiance #3

Review is:

Useful NOT useful 107 people find this review useful. Problem with this review

I just purchased YSL Blush radiance in no.1 and no. 2 for the first time and was simply amazed. Blush is the one thing that for me is the hardest to master- I either put on too much or not enough, but blush radiance goes on so smoothly, blends effortlessly and a little goes a long way. Finally a Blush I can use! The colors are true to the pictures on the website and the packaging, well, you all know how gorgeous it is. This product is pricey, however for a blush that blends well into the skin, the price is well worth it. I am now a YSL fan for life!

I have used Blush Radiance for years and am still using my first shade purchase because they've discontinued it. I use a small kabuki brush to apply to ensure I get the benefits of both the matte and shimmer pallettes. It goes on well, doesn't land in one spot and looks oh so natural. Its my favorite.You have to order on line because the store counters no longer carry it.
