Company’s Description

Babydoll Kiss and Blush by Yves Saint Laurent adds a perfect flirtatious pop of color to your lips and cheeks. The blendable, air-whipped mousse formula has a soft matte finish and features an exclusive applicator for precise application and buildable color that goes exactly where you want it to.

Yves Saint Laurent’s newest lip and cheek product–the Babydoll Kiss & Blush–comes in 12 different shades, provides color for both the lips and face, and has an air-whipped mousse formula. This review is for the following shades:

  • #2 Rose Frivole
  • #4 Orange Fougueux
  • #5 Rouge Effronté
  • #12 Moca Garçonn

Packaging: 9/10

The Blush & Kiss comes in a square, glass bottle with a reflective gold handle made of plastic that twists out to reveal a flat, tear-shaped, doe-foot applicator.

Quality: 7.5/10

Rose Frivole is a bright, neutral rose pink. Orange Fougueux is a bright, medium orange. Rouge Effronté is a bright, orange-based red. And Moca Garçonn is a medium nude. All of these shades dry down to a matte finish.

The formula starts out as a liquid with some body, but dries to a powdery finish. On the lips, this means that the surface of the product feels a bit silicone-like and can be drying if you have dry skin. On the cheeks, these leave a satin-matte layer of color.

I was surprised that the Kiss & Blush formula was not that impressive. The colors can be used sheer or more intense if you layer them, but they fade significantly after just 4 hours of wear. With Moca Garçonn, this loss of color was particularly noticeable because it is a nude shade. By hour 5, it looked like I had not applied anything to the cheeks. And this fading effect happens with all of the colors even if you set the product with powder.

On the lips, too, this formula is not long-wearing. It transfers pretty easily, so it last only a couple of hours before you’ll need to re-apply the product. The brighter shades do leave behind a slight stain, but the stain is also not very long-wearing. And the color fades from the lips unevenly, sticking more strongly in the lip lines.

Ease of Use: 8.5/10

This was not my favorite formula to work with. First, the stopper in the bottle keeps the doe-foot applicator from picking up enough product, so I have to dip back into the bottle 2-3 times to get enough product to cover one cheek or the lips. Blending the formula on the cheeks could be smoother, but the formula is decent in this respect. Application onto the lips, other than the hassle of re-dipping into the bottle, is pretty easy too.

Price: 8.5/10

For $40.00 you get 0.33 fl oz of product.
