I used to look at the YSL Touche blush and thought it super cute, but I couldn’t bring myself to pay for it if it wasn’t practical or user-friendly. So, when I noticed that Bloop de Paris has a dupe of the YSL Touche blush, it was a no brainer to give it a shot!
Note: YSL Cosmetics has been pulled from Malaysia (it is also pulled from Singapore) despite previous information to the contrary. I’m told its due to a change of management and distribution channels so I’m confident we’ll see it come back soon 🙂
So since we don’t have YSL for now, we have Bloop! The packaging of the Bloop de Paris Puff Blush isn’t as lux as that of YSL I have to admit, but the concept is the same i.e. loose powder blush that applies through a sponge puff. You tap it on and you can use the puff to blend it.
I encountered a slight “accident” when I first opened the cap of the Puff Puff blusher. The sponge puff had come off and some of the loose powder blush has spilled everywhere which was a bit of a mess. Getting it back on was a bit of a hassle as you have to pull a sponge “cap” over the hole where the powder comes out of; but once I got the sponge puff back on, it’s stayed put ever since.
Here’s my tip for using the Bloop de Paris Puff Puff Blusher or any similar type of blush:-
Tap the puff on the back of your hand until you see the colour appear. Only then do you tap LIGHTLY on the apples of your cheeks. Preferably, use a brush to blend the colour on your cheeks. Otherwise, lightly blend edges with the sponge puff. Layer if needed.
When I do it the way I mentioned above, I get adorable kawaii rosy cheeks. Its all I want to do to put on light shimmery makeup and strike a kawaii pose 🙂 But if I’m lazy and puff it straight on the cheeks without first puffing it on the back of my hand, I get a “OMG You just got slapped!” look – not nice!
