YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Swatches & Review

Lipstick launches always excites me especially when it’s shiny and last long on my lips. YSL is famous with many of their lip products for its wide ranges of color, creamy texture and the beautiful packaging. I received this beautifully packed lipsticks. There are 5 beautiful colors here, the reds and the plums. Keep reading to know more about what I think of YSL Volupte Shine!

The packaging:

YSL Rouge Volupte shine has the same packaging as the YSL Rouge Volupte. It’s one of the prettiest lipstick design I have ever owned. The YSL logo in the middle is just gorgeous and it looks timeless. The gold color packaging is very prone to finger print, but nonetheless the packaging is just beautiful!

The Reds

The Plums:

The Texture and Pigmentation:

YSL Volupte shine glides beautifully on my lips. The application is easy, it does not make any mess on my lips. The pigmentation is lovely, the color shows up beautifully on my lip in just one swipe. In two swipes, the color looks perfect. The finished looks shiny on the lips but it does not look sheer at all. It’s a nice shiny and pigmented color. Whatever color you look in the tube, it would look like that on your lips.

Swatches 

 No12 Corail Incandescent

No 6 Pink in Devotion

No 13 Pink in Paris

 

No 19 Fuschia in Rage

No 3 Violet Incognito

Lasting Power:

The lasting power is amazing. It stays on my lip for 6 hours; the shine faded but not the color. For ladies who don’t want the hassle of reapplying lip color, YSL Rouge Volupte Shine provides what you need. However I found a little downside of YSL Rouge Volupte Shine. Although it’s pigmented and lasts for long, it left a stain on my lips for pretty long. I have tried to remove the lipstick with my lip make up remover but the stain is still there for few hours.

Final Thought:

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine provides a great pigmentation and shine throughout the whole day. The color range is very wide too (You can see the lists of the color here) For ladies who like shiny lips, I highly recommend this range! 🙂

L’Oreal Shine Caresse Swatch & Comparison


Shine Caresse’s ultra-light fluid texture immediately melts onto the lips for a long-lasting moist-look effect combined with completely unprecedented comfort and freshness. Redefines shine with an all new sensation of soft, moist lips.

The secret: an exceptionally high concentration of moisture thanks to a unique formula made with 30% water and 60% oil for unprecedented freshness.

Shine Caresse:

• a soft, moist-look effect
• light, luminous shine
• long-lasting hold
• a sensation of fresh moisturization

A feather-shaped applicator

The Shine Caresse foam applicator leaves the lips with a light, subtle luster thanks
to a tiny hole in the center designed to remove excess color as you apply it.
Taking the form of a feather, the applicator shapes itself to your lips for easy, one-step application without a mirror. The feather-shaped applicator accentuates the shiny, comfortable, non-sticky qualities of the texture.

Now onto my own pictures and review!

I received these 7 colors recently during the preview media launch. I have read few beauty blogs that mentioned Shine Caresse is very similar to YSL Glossy Stains. I am so excited to try whether this is the real dupe of YSL Glossy Stains 🙂 Please keep reading if you want to know.

There will be 8 shades of L’Oreal Shine Caresse in Singapore. I only have 7 colors with me, I missed 606 Eve. The color range of Shine Caresse ranges from nudes, soft pinks, coral and reds. The packaging is in a gold color which looks very sleek and nice.

Swatches of the softer shades:

Swatches of the bolder shades:

Texture & Smell:

L’Oreal Caresse has a glossy finish. The pigmentation of Shine Caresse is not as pigmented as what I would have expected. At the swatches above, I applied two layers. As you can see, even with two layers, some of the colors are still sheer. What I love about Shine Caresse is that these products does not leave a sticky feeling, It has a jelly like finish. Moreover the smell of Shine Caresse is not strong, not something that would annoys me.

Comparison with YSL Glossy Stain:

In terms of texture, I can feel that there’s a slight difference between them. YSL Glossy Stains sinks in better than Shine Caresse. As you can see in the swatch above, YSL Glossy Stain is more pigmented than L’Oreal Shine Caresse. I find that Shine Caresse is more moisturizing and it doesn’t peel off my lip. YSL Glossy stain has better pigmentation but the texture makes my lips peel. Another thing that differentiates these two is the scent. Shine Caresse has a softer scent which is a WIN thing for me. YSL Glossy Stain scent is way too strong for me which I dislike.

Looking at the brush shape, L’Oreal Shine Caresse has a longer and rounder shape of brush, whereas YSL Glossy Stain has a more pointed shape. I personally prefer YSL’s more pointed shape brush. It helps me to apply the color more neatly and more evenly. However, since L’Oreal Shine Caresse  has lesser pigmentation, I don’t have issues the brush shape.

Final Thought:

Overall I think L’Oreal Shine Caresse is really worth checking. I personally love the jelly like texture, the shine, the finish and the non strong smell. The color range is also not bad, I can find soft shades and bold shades. It’s weird to say this because I usually love sheer and nude colors but Shine Caresse bold colors shouts to me louder, they look much better than the sheerer one. My favorite shade from this collection is 603 Milady and 801 Princess. They show up very well on me 🙂

L’Oreal Shine Caresse will be retailing at $18.90 in February 2013

Uk Trip Haul :D

Hello guys!

I have been shopping a lot during the holiday! UK has plenty of makeup brands that I could not find in Singapore and I took the chance of getting those things! I know I’ve been a bad girl during the holiday. When I reached home after the holiday, I felt guilty looking at my new stuffs 🙁 But anyway I enjoyed my holiday so much and now I should work hard to pay off those shopping damages LOL 😀

Suqqu

This is Suqqu counter in Selfridges Manchester. I didn’t take more pictures as I was too excited to look for products here. I had fun swatching many products. There are many items that are not available there because I think it sold out pretty quickly.

Here are my Suqqu haul; 2 eyeshadow, 1 blush and 1 eyebrow palette.

Illamasqua

These pictures are also taken in Illamasqua counter in Selfridges Manchester.  The Illamasqua counter there is very happening with 3 SAs that have dramatic makeup and dresses! The thing that gets me most excited is to see their blushes. I have Illamasqua blush in Hussy and I love it to bits. I had fun swatching at the blush counter and decided to pick

I purchased three items from Illamasqua; a blush, an eye palette and a cream highlighter.

Chantecaille

I picked this Chantecaille Classic Palette in Harrods. This palette was on sale together with the Tiger in the Wild palette. Chantecaille products pricing are so expensive even after the price reduction. I paid (£50 or £75, can’t remember exactly). Honestly I bought this only because I want to collect a product from a brand that I have never had before. I will do a review about this palette soon (I hope 🙂 )

Drugstore Haul from Boots & Superdrug

I had fun in both Superdrugs and Boots mostly in between Christmas – New year because they are having generous promotions. I bought quite a number of products there as they are having a “Buy 2 get 3” promotions and I will get a free goodie bag when I buy 5 products or more. Gosh I could not control myself and bought there things with me. I know I am a bad girl when it comes to shopping but I’ll give myself an excuse since this is a year end holiday :p

Real Technique Brushes

Sleek Eye and Blush Palettes

Miscellaneous brands – Maybelline Color Tattoo, Revlon Lipstain, Max Factor lipfinity, Loreal Eyeshadow, Rimmel Eyeliner, etc.

Model’s Own and Barry M are one of those brands that excites me the most in Boots and Superdrug. Their glittery nail polishes are to die for! Barry M nail polishes were about £3-£5 each and Model’s Own were about £5 each.

That’s all I have for you 🙂

I have many things to be reviewed and please be patient with me LOL.

Thank you for reading.

Luxasia Warehouse Sale 2012 Haul

Hi Hi!

I will be posting a quick post about my haul at Luxasia Warehouse Sale 2012.

I found out about this warehouse sale from Michelle from Ice Frost Diary‘s blog. I missed this event last year so I definitely would not want to miss this event again.

The sale was mainly about perfume. There are too many brands of perfume to mention; Chloe, Marc Jacob, Balenciaga, Hermès, Prada, Annick Goutal, acqua di parma, etc. The make up brands are Burberry, Guerlain, RMK, Anna Sui. There are many french skincare brands too!

Here’s a quick snap of my haul:

My hauls are mainly Burberry makeup product. The eyeshadows are at $15, The lipstick was at $20, Concealer was at $25, Lip liner was at $12. The non make up item I bought from Burberry is Burberry The Beat Perfume. This was sold at $49 (50ml)

I also picked Guerlain Emillio Pucci Terra Azzura at $50. I am so happy that finally I am getting this at a more reasonable price. I believe this was retailed at more than $100. I also picked up the nail polish at $12.

I hope to review these makeup items soon. I really want to use my Burberry products as soon as possible and see how much I like them 🙂
