YSL Rouge Volupte #1 Nude Beige Review + FOTD

Hello!

Today I’m going to review  YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick #1 in Nude Beige. This lipstick is part of my YSL Haul.

Firstly, I love the packaging of YSL Rouge Volupte. It looks very  classy and elegant. It’s heavy and I love the gold plated casing of this lipstick. Again, the YSL logo in the middle of the casing just adds up the luxuriousness of this lipstick.

Nude beige is a pretty pinkish beige. I’m such a big fan of this kind of color. Previously I have reviewed YSL Rouge Volupte #7 in Pink Lingerie and I think Nude Beige suits my taste better. Pink Lingerie is a very sweet pink but it looks a bit pale on me. Nude beige has more nude color tone which I think suits me quite well :)

I don’t really like the texture of this lipstick. It’s way too creamy. Moreover when my lips are dry, this lipstick emphasizes the dryness of the lipstick. One way to cover the flaws is to add some lipgloss on top of this.

I did a simple FOTD with YSL Rouge Volupte #1 Nude Beige. For my eyes, it was simply a black eyeliner with a pair of false eyelashes. I used MAC bronzer  in Bronze to sculpt my face and for my cheek I am using Jill Stuart Blush in #14 Lantana Honey

Soon I will be posting my review on YSL Touche Eclat :D

Thank you for reading.

 

Urban Decay Vice Palette Review + FOTD

Urban Decay is releasing a brand new palette consisting of 20 brand new shades. Although Urban Decay is not my favorite brand, the release of their new palette always excites me. This palette is going to be officially launched in November island wide in Singapore. But as Kas and Mag written in their blog, This palette is going to be available on 6th October 2012 at Sephora ION from 2-6pm. I went down on that day and decided to grab this one. This palette retails for $88.

Twenty never-before-seen shades in one insanely gorgeous palette! Shadow junkies, prepare to get addicted.

If eyeshadow is your vice, the Vice Palette is your fix. Loaded with 20 never-before-seen shades you won’t find anywhere else, this insanely gorgeous palette is ALL about eyeshadow. With a mix of mattes, satins, shimmers, neutrals and brights, the range of shades is unreal—from breathtaking gold to shimmery green to jet-black satin. Plus, each Eyeshadow features our brand new Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

All that eye candy comes in a sleek purple soft-touch case topped with a jeweled UD icon. With the push of a button, the slow-opening lid dramatically reveals all 20 shades, plus a large mirror and a double-ended Good Karma Shadow and Crease Brush. Shadow junkies, prepare to get addicted.

Included in this set: 20 NEW AND EXCLUSIVE Eyeshadows—Desperation (greyish taupe brown matte-satin), Muse (dark reddish brown w/golden and multidimensional shimmer), Jagged (matte black base w/gold metallic), Blitz (bright gold metallic),  (bronze metallic w/gold glitter), Junkie (dark green-blue w/gold shimmer), Chaos (vibrant royal blue w/very subtle shimmer), Unhinged (electric turquoise blue metallic), Occupy (dark grey-blue metallic), Black Market (dark charcoal black matte-satin), Provocateur (light greyish pink w/lots of multidimensional glitter), Rapture (dark greyish purple w/multidimensional shimmer), Vice (dark eggplant w/subtle red shimmer), Noise (dark reddish-pink metallic w/big gold glitter), Armor (greyish brown metallic w/silver micro-glitter), Nevermind (light taupey-brown shimmer), Echo Beach (light wheat-champagne shimmer), Anonymous (light whitish-pink nude matte), Freebird (light peachy-pink w/silver micro-glitter) and Laced (pinky-taupe matte).

I like this packaging. It looks pretty and it looks rather velvety from certain lighting. There’s a rubberized feeling when touching this palette. I’m glad that Urban Decay includes this dual brush which can be useful rather than sponges that other brands are usually includes. At one end, the brush can be used for eyeshadow and at the other end the brush can be used for blending or crease brush.

The quality of this eye palette is generally good. They are pigmented, long lasting (especially when paired with UD primer potion) and the color range is wide. There are numbers of neutrals in this palette but it also includes few unique colors like Chaos (matte electric blue), Unhinged (shimmering turquoise blue) and Noise (a very bright pink with very slight shimmer). Most of the colors blends very well; pigmented and very less fallouts. However few colors can be very bad in terms of fallout. The colors are Muse, Jagged, and Provocateur. I am quite disappointed that Provocateur has very bad fallout issue because I really like the color, the color is just so pretty.

From these 20 colors, I have few favorite color which I am sure I will be using a lot. My favorite colors are Blitz, Occupy, Provocateur (despite the fallout, I still love the color so much :) ),Rapture, Vice, Armor, Nevermind. Oh well that’s a lot of favorites :)

Last week I attended a wedding banquet with my family and I was using Urban Decay Vice Palette for my whole eye look.

On my eye:

Urban Decay Primer Potion

Urban Decay Vice Palette – Provocateur (all over my eyelids), Rapture, Vice (for my crease color) and Black Market (outer corner nearby the lash line)

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Ebene for my lash line and Dolly Wink Liquid eyeliner.

Shu Uemura Brow Pencil

YSL Eyepencil in Luminescent Gold

Random falsies that I bought in Taiwan.

On my cheeks:

MAC Bronzing powder in Bronze

Chanel Ombres Tissees in Beiges

Le Metier de Beaute Kaleidoscope Blush

Lip:

Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense in 89 Gracile

Final Thought:

Overall I think this is a very good palette. The color range is wide, it gives me choice to wear many colors and there will be endless choice of mixing the colors. The texture and the pigmentation is also great. Although fallouts can be annoying, I think this is still forgiven because the colors are amazing and it’s very well pigmented. Retailing at $88 and contains 20 colors, I think this eye palette is worth a look.

YSL Le Vernis in 6 Rouge Dada Swatch

Hello :)

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 :)?

YSL Haul :D

Hello all,

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 :D

Tom Ford 06 Cheek Brush Review

Hello!

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.

Final Thought:

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.

What’s your favorite cheek brush? Share with me in the comment box below :)

I hope you like this post :)
