YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick Nude Beige SwatchI don’t think there is a lipstick packaging more gorgeous than the YSL offerings. The gold tubes of luxury are quite the dream to look at. After picking one up last year I had to get my hands on another and with a love of nude lips developing I knew I needed one particular shade. 01 Nude Beige is a pretty popular shade and after giving it a try I can definitely understand the popularity.

When I first got this I was a little worried about the shade. As I said I love a good nude pink lip but nothing that washes you out or gives you that dreaded ‘foundation lips’ look. Nude lipsticks look different on everyone and with myself having very pale skin I was a little unsure on how it would turn out. However luckily I found a perfect nude lip. The colour is just right and paired with a gloss on top it creates a beautiful everyday lip colour.

The formula of these lipsticks is what makes them. The YSL lipsticks are probably the best formula of lipstick I have ever used (so far). The Rouge Volupté lipsticks have such a creamy and silky smooth formula which makes it glide easily over the lips. It makes your lips feel super soft and moisturised while not compromising on pigmentation. If you have used any of the lipsticks from the line you may be familiar with a slight melon scent however I do not find it overpowering or off putting in any way. Also, as it does have a rather creamy texture the lasting power isn’t the best although it’s not disastrously bad and being such a beautiful lipstick who would really mind having to take out the stunning gold bullet for re-application!

Have you tried any YSL lipsticks?

The Spring Edit 2015


Spring Beauty Edit

Looking out the window just now, it’s safe to say Winter is far behind us. Enter Spring, warm(er) weather, cherry blossom, excuses for ice cream and lighter nights. When it comes to beauty, its all about the light glowy radiant look with gleaming highlighters, fresh radiant bases and coral cheeks. In other words here is the bulky spring edit for 2015.

Starting with the base, I have a newbie in my hands! If you read my blog regularly you may recall me lusting after the Nars Sheer Glow foundation for far too long well as you can see now I have finally picked it up! While BB/CC creams and tinted moisturisers are all the rage for spring for the fresh light coverage look, my skin needs a little more cover. This foundation has pretty darn good coverage but still offers a radiant look perfect for spring. To add that extra light and glowy feel, a swipe of the iconic YSL Touche Eclat under the eyes is great for brighting any dark circles.

Onto the cheeks. I couldn’t resist mentioning this one again, Benefit Majorette Blush. This cream-to-powder coral blush is the perfect boost of colour for the cheeks in Spring. For a bronzed look, a sweep of Nars Laguna round the face and in the hollows of the cheeks for a subtle contour. To top it off, a light sweep of the irresistible Nars Copacabana illuminator on the cheekbones to achieve that extra glow.

For eyes, I have been loving rosy and lilac shades on my lids. Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pink Gold (swatch here) is the perfect soft pink and has such a beautiful creamy formula. In addition, L’oreal Colour Riche Mono Eyeshadow 601 is such a pretty shimmery blue-toned lilac shade. To finish, Benefit Bad Gal Lash gives the most prettiest natural fluttery lashes.

For the lips, my first ever MAC lipstick is back out to play. MAC Shy Girl is such a gorgeous nude peach shade which looks even prettier with a coat of clear gloss on top for a natural soft look. To finish, Chanel Tenderly (which I reviewed here) on the nails for that perfect spring look or a pastel shade from my Nails Spring Edit will do the job!

How have you changed your beauty routine for Spring?

Beauty Haul: YSL, Mac, Barry M


P1040880 P1040887 P1040889 P1040893 P1040898 P1040899 P1040902 P1040911 P1040912Happy weekend everyone 🙂 So yesterday I got up to a little shopping and I wanted to share with you what I bought. Firstly I went into House of Fraser as I had to return a Mac lipstick. If you read my post on the Naked 3 palette you may have seen I mentioned that I bought a lipstick to receive the deal.. well after buying Mac Cyber I was quite unimpressed with the colour which was far too dark so I went into Mac to exchange it for another one; Mac Twig which is the perfect fall colour, its of a brownish pink/light red shade and is in a satin finish. Paired with lip liner the Kylie Jenner look is nailed!

I then noticed a deal at YSL which had 20% off everything and also a great deal on their iconic Touche Eclat highlighters which were selling for £15 each rather than its usual £25. So i thought it was well worth the investment into such a raved about product however lets just say they have very good sales people who persuaded me to purchase 2 as it would only be £30 and after having quite the makeover I was incredibly drawn by their beautiful gold packaged Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick. I picked up shade 13 Pink in Paris for a discounted £20, but it is one of those items you need in your collection.

And last but not least I went to Boots and picked up two Gelly Barry M Nail polishes in the shades Cocoa and Paprika. There was a buy one get one half price offer so I picked up these two which are the perfect autumn shades. Hopefully once I do my nails I will make a blog post so stay tuned! All I can think of when I look at these shades is hot chocolate and autumn leaves .. bliss 🙂
