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?


YSL does it again

So last year I raved about Volume Effet Faux Cils Noir Radical at Yves Saint Laurent . I recently tried, their latest addition,  MASCARA SINGULIER . The biggest difference I thought initially was the brush. It is not as full as the Faux cils and allows for you grab more lashes, even tiny ones. It’s an excellent mascara, however I like the formula of the orginal one.

Basically I need the old formula and the new brush. I still think it’s worth a shot. YSL in my opinion does an amazing job with cosmetics. I got great results by also using a drugstore mascara first, then going on top with the YSL. Lash layering gives va-voom! Try it out!

Faux Love

4 Jul

I admit, I have an obsession with mascara. I have tried more than the law should allow. Some are exceptional, and many are just ok. But this one that I have been using recently is magnificent. Let me first say that if a mascara can last on me at least 5 hours, it has my vote (my face/eyes are EXTREMELY oily.)

Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils is the most luxurious mascara I have tried yet.It is nice and creamy,it lengthens, curls and gives volume.This the non waterproof, which means it does not need an atomic bomb to take it off.But at the same time it lasts almost a whole shift at work, which is often very warm and I’m under a lot of light.
This mascara also comes in various colors, from burgundy to green. Yet all these colors still remain sophisticated, no teenie bopper looks with YSL.

Run don’t walk for this one.
