Before I go on, do note that this limited edition compact powder from YSL Love Collection is a previous release and no longer available in stores. I got mine from StrawberryNET.com and this review is as a result of requests from readers who might want to get it from there too.
The YSL Love Collection Powder is gorgeous to look at. As I said before, its hard to defile something that looks so pretty but at the end of the day, we should use what we purchase (unless you’re a collector) so I grit my teeth, took a picture for posterity and defiled it.
The compact is not very big but the pink heart is quite big so the powder areas around the sides of the pink heart can be a bit of a bother to get to if you just want to use the powder unless you have a small powder brush – and how many of us have that?
The pink heart is very sweet. I love the colour as a blush because its pigmented enough to use as one. I use a regular blush brush and tap off some excess before applying as blush. It does take about 2 layers for the colour to show up nicely but when it does its beautiful – it lights your cheeks with a glow from within.
I have also used it as an all over face powder but you have to be quite careful when using it this way. I’ve shown you some swatches below.
