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
Thank you for reading.
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.
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.
