Its been said that even in a recession, women will continue buying lipsticks, because they are give a quick instant boost for not too much moolah. I had that down in the dumps feeling the other week and decided I needed that boost, except my lipstick of choice was a rather pricey one at £20.50. I have reviewed YSL Rouge Volupte before and its gone a little Pete Tong. But it’s so sexy, isn’t it?…..
I am dabbling in the areas of tutorials – I am no professional but like a lot of girls who love make up, I get ideas from magazines and learn through practice. Everyone has to adapt things to suit their own eye shape but hopefully any of you can use this guide. All of the colours and tools I used are dupable but I have tried to use brands that can be bought from around […]
I still hate this palette with a passion, but I had to make it work. So here’s a quick EOTD: Breakdown: 1 – Highlight under brow bone 2 – Brown in crease 3 – Bright blue on lid 4 – Purple under the eye 5 – Dark blue under the lashes I guess the palette is ok, but I still concede that I NEED SHIMMER!
UPDATE: I regret buying the stupid eyeshadow palette so much. It’s pigmented but still a bit chalky and I still concede that there should be one shimmer in the palette. Argh! I wish I could get a refund! Do you like YSL? I liked the brand although its not one I buy from that often. It was hard not to like the Tresor D’Arfrique collection after seeing the promo: Hot, eh? It was pretty much […]
You know you are about to buy something, and all the time you’re thinking, no, don’t buy this, its a really bad idea. But you buy it anyway? That’s how I felt when I shelled out £17.32 (or some other ridiculous figure – our VAT/TAX rate has been cut from 17.5% to 15% and most retailers have been forwarding the discount to shoppers but clearly haven’t had time to make it a nice round figure) […]
So off I went on my lunch, accosting the YSL counter full of excitement. Remember I was looking the for YSL Quints – the green, lilac and blue all looked amazing. Swipe. Swipe. Swipe. Ok they were ok. The green is the softest and nicest in my opinion but the colours were oh-so-flat. Some of the high end brands seem to do this; YSL, Chanel, Dior, have somewhat medium pigmented shades so the finished look […]
After my previous dabble with YSL Rouge Volupte, I decided to have a little dabble in 2 other shades of pink. But before I get into that I have to confirm that – 1. The case is gorgeous and it matched the lipstick 2. It smells nice 3. The texture is smooth, creamy and gorgeous 4. The pigmentation is high and the colour is true. Yet…I have my doubts…. On with the lippies – Remember […]
You know how there’s some things that just make you go, Cor! Like; Errr, wait bad photo…like… and… Something else made me go Cor! It was YSL’s new Rouge Volupte Lipstick. The case is just STUN. NING. This is what they say about it: The cream texture becomes fluid on contact with the lips, for a delightful feeling and an exceptional gliding effect. A nutri-protective vegetal complex takes care of nourishes your lips, keeping them […]
