Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture pics + swatches

9 Dec

Here is the latest and greatest from YSL, Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks. These are the two that I own. In my humble opinion, YSL is an industry leader when it comes to lipstick. The textures, palettes and packaging are A-mazing. The pur couture lipsticks are a cross between rouge volupte (pronounce VOL-UP-TAY,lol) and rouge pur.It’s a happy medium for those that may feel that the volupte was too creamy.

I have No.1 and No.2 (exclusive to Sephora)

No.1 is a more orange red, the No.20 is more blue, both very wearable.

 

Have you tried anything from YSL lately?

Comparison pics+swatches of MAC’s Pink Friday, Viva Glam Gaga and St.Germain lipsticks

7 Dec

Yeah, another post about that damn Pink Friday lipstick…. I’ve heard many comparisons to Viva Glam Gaga as well as St.Germain….Welp your homie here lover of lipsticks dug into the stash and snapped some shots.

You decide.

swatches 🙂

Welp, there you have it. For me, Pink Friday is actually the most different between the three. While all three are pale pinks, Pink Friday is deeper in color.

What say you?

 

Nicki Minaj Pink Friday lipstick- swatches +pics

1 Dec

So I ordered it last week before that puppy was sold out. I actually ordered two, I can’t help it. I am a collector of sorts. It is a very, very pale pink and won’t be an easy task to pull off. I have not done a FOTD yet, I am off today, it is rainy and I decided no make up today. I only am required to wear it every single day at work, so bear with me. I know I owe you all pics of me wearing the Lanvin lip also. I am on it folks.

Anywho, here ya go!

 

The color shows a bit darker, but alas I have yet a new camera and I don’t know what the hell I am doing with the settings. No outdoor pic due to the monsoon.

FOTD will be up by some time next week. The lipstick will sell for three more Fridays, if you are unsure, order it anyway. You can always send it back or return at a MAC store. What are your thoughts?

*If you use my pics or swatches please credit and link back to my site. I hardly have to watermark and such.

NYX lipstick pics+swatches

29 Nov

I have been meaning to get this post up for a minute… Here are most of the nyx lipsticks I own, swatches and all that good stuff.

In my humble opinion NYX has an extensive color range in regards to lipsticks. Most of them are smooth and could rival many major cosmetic brands. The best part is that they are recession proof. I always pay less than $3 and most online sites have them for about $2.50 or so.

Here are swatches:

from left to right; frauccino, creamy beige, taupe, femme

heather, twig, twist, heredes

chaos , bruised *for the record one can never have enough red lipstick

 

If you are looking to try some new colors, or build your kit I highly recommend NYX……..Here are some other things I dig

 

Do you have any NYX faves?

Nicki Minaj to release an exclusive MAC lipstick!

13 Nov

*this is not a picture of the MAC “Pinky Friday 4” lipstick

According to my source right in sync with her upcoming album release, “Pink Friday”, Nicki Minaj will release an exclusive limited edition lipstick.The lipstick, “Pink Friday 4” will sell beginning next Friday, only on line and only for the next four Fridays. While color swatches have not surfaced and all that good stuff, you can rest assured knowing it will be her signature pink lip look. The color will be a cross between MAC’s “pink nouveau” and “girl about town” (the latter being one of my favorite lipsticks), from what I hear.

 

  *This is not the actual “Pink Friday 4” lipstick.* I am imagining what the color will look like.

 

These artists and cosmetic giants collborations are absolutely GENIUS.

And yes, I will be purchasing this, I am obsessed with lipstick, as you know, lol.
