As promised in my haul post (you can take a look at it here) I will post the review of each YSL products mentioned in the haul post.
Rouge Dada is a deep red creme polish. It looks vampy on indoor lighting but when it’s exposed to direct sunlight, this nail varnish looks a bit berry red. The formula of this polish is great; it’s very easy to work with. This nail polish is opaque in two coats. The brush of YSL nail polish is wide; it’s really easy to control the application. The brush is much wider than Chanel’s and it’s quite thin. The Make Up Blogette has written an in depth review of YSL nail polish, you can read it here.
Have you tried any YSL Nail polish? What do you think of them ?

I’ve been quite busy with my job and personal life lately. I bought these items 3 weeks ago when YSL just opened their flagship store in Singapore. I will do a separate post for my review of these items. Here’s what I bought :
I’ll see you again in the next post in a few days time
Today I am posting my first ever brush review, Tom Ford 06 Cheek Brush. The first time I opened the box of this brush, I immediately knew that I’ve made a right decision to purchase this. The brush looks very sleek, elegant and expensive.
Tom Ford’s beauty products are expensive and rather difficult to get especially for us here in Singapore. Currently we can only get this online. I got this through my mom who was traveling abroad last month.
The brush is very pretty. It’s quite heavy compared to other brushes that I have. I love the elegant and luxurious look of this brush. I have never had a brush as pretty as this The handle is in brown color with “Tom Ford” engraved at the end of the handle.
The brush is extremely soft and dense. I like the feeling when I swipe this onto my cheek, It feels so soft and this brush applies wonderfully. However you need to be careful when using this brush with a very pigmented blush. Just dabbed it lightly and gradually build the color. Few days ago when I tried applying my Le Metier de Beaute Kaleidoscope Blush , I need to dab this brush lightly. Otherwise I would take too much blush color.
For comparison, I took a picture of all my cheek brushes. The Shiseido Chouetools is actually a face brush but I also use it as my cheek brush. MAC 168 is a contour brush which I also use for my cheek occasionally.
If I would have to comment on the packaging and the quality of the brush, I would say that this brush is outstanding. The quality of the brush is very good; it’s soft and dense. However from the price perspective, this brush is only worth buying if you’d like to collect makeup item. I am not sure the exact price about this product but it ranges from $90-$100.

Recently Chanel has just released a reformulated Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lipstick. The range of this lipstick is quite broad; it has reds, nudes and pinks. I am actually attracted to few shades in this range but so far I only picked one. Initially 88 Évanescente caught my attention but I finally picked 89 Gracile. I am still wondering whether I should get 88 Évanescente but I will give my self a time since it’s not a limited edition
Firstly I am really in love with the texture. It applies smoothly and it doesn’t peel my lips. It is very moisturizing too.
My lips tend to be dry most of the time. My favorite thing about this lipstick is that it doesn’t emphasize the dryness of my lip. It covers my lip very well and it is moisturizing.
I pulled some lipstick colors that I think might be similar to Chanel Gracile, you can see the comparison in the photo below.
Dior Cherie Bow (here) seems to be the closest comparison to Chanel Gracile. There’s a slight difference between them though; Cherie Bow seems to leans more towards peachy and Gracile seems to be more pinkish.
Here’s how it looks on me
I hope you like the look
Have you checked out the Rouge Allure Intense Lipstick Range? What do you think of them?

I am very excited to share with you my recent purchase of this gorgeous blush! Le Metier De Beauté Blush Kaleidoscope is one thing that I have been craving for months!! Thanks to Miss J who helped me to get this I have heard LOTS of good reviews about this blush and I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you all
The packaging is surely the main reason I attracted to this blush. It’s very unique and I have never seen anything like this before. There are 4 blush colors in this; matte peach, matte pink, shimmery peach and shimmery pink. I like the idea that they are putting 4 different blushes on a same pan. I foresee that I will bring this blush when I travel. I can choose any color that I want and I can also mix the colors
First of all, I would like to talk about the pigmentation of this blush. This blush is very pigmented. I need to be very careful when I dabbed my brush or else I’d look like a clown :p The texture is pretty good; it’s quite soft. I actually hoped that it would be softer and buttery for the hefty price tag I paid. But to be more objective, I think the texture of this blush is good enough. The shimmers are softer than the mattes.
Let’s take a look at the swatches
As you can see, This blush is VERY pigmented. When applying, I always try to dab it very lightly and try to build the color slowly. I like the idea that we can actually mix and match the blush color to create the colors that we desire. So far I have only tried mixing the pink matte and the pink shimmer. I am sure I will be enjoying my time mixing the colors to see what unique color I can get from this blush.
I did a look with this blush. I chose the matte pink for my FOTD
Have you tried any of Le Metier de Beauté product? What do you think of it?
I hope you enjoy this post
