My personal thought on this product:

Packaging wise, this product is very handy. It’s very easy to bring this anywhere; it’s very lightweight and it’s in a good size to be put in a bag. The spray button at the top of the bottle is also made very safe, meaning it’s very unlikely that the liquid is going to be accidentally sprayed inside your bag. The texture of this UV mist is very light, I personally dislike a sunblock or a UV Mist that’s very light in texture. I feel that it doesn’t give me enough protection. I am aware that this is SPF 45 but when the texture is very light, I don’t really feel I am getting enough protection. However I think this product is good to be applied as a second layer. When I have been exposed to the sun for more than 3 hours, usually I will reapply my sun screen and I think this product is a good choice for that.

YSL Rouge Volupte #7 Pink Lingerie Review and Swatch

I am glad to hear the news that YSL beauty is coming to Singapore real real soon! I really can’t wait to see YSL’s gorgeous counter in Singapore. But before that, I am going to reveal some of my recent YSL purchase in DFS Changi airport. I have never owned any YSL lipsticks yet because I think most of the lipstick packaging is too gold. However once I spotted YSL Rouge Volupte range, I know I have to have one :) It was not difficult for me to choose the color from this range as the first time I saw this lipstick range, I have spotted few lipsticks that I want. Eventually I pick #7 Pink Lingerie.

Judging from its packaging, this lipstick has one of the best design. As much as I love Chanel product, I would say YSL Rouge Volupte has much better design than Chanel’s lipstick. The YSL logo in the middle shows how elegant this brand is, it also shows the exclusivity of the brand. Usually I don’t like YSL’s gold packaging but this time, I am in love with it. The gold color matches very well with that sweet pink color placed as a background of the YSL logo. The packaging is just so pretty and awesome :)

Rouge Volupte #7 Pink Lingerie is a very pretty pink color. It looks quite pale on my skintone but I like it. It appears to be very sweet on my lip and in my opinion this lipstick would look best when I apply a heavy smoky brown look. This lipstick will help me to look sweet even in times when I have a heavy eye look.

I picked this because the colors look very sweet when I swatch it on my arm. I didn’t swatch this on my lip because I was in a rush to grab a quick breakfast before my flight.  I didn’t know that Rouge Volupte range is the creamiest range from YSL. As much as I love the color, I would say that the texture is way too creamy. It appears to be messy on my lip on my first swipe; to make it looks good, I need to blend it with my finger. On the pictures below, you can see the swatch of this lipstick before and after I blend it.

after blended 

As you can see in the pictures above, the “before blended” picture shows how creamy this lipstick is. It’s kinda irritating to see that texture on my lip. However after I blend the color with my finger, it looks fine and smooth. This lipstick has a very nice smell. I don’t know how to explain the smell but it smells very sweet and fresh.

Final Thought:

This lipstick is a very moisturizing product. My only complain about this lipstick is only the too creamy texture of this lipstick. Although it appears quite messy on first swipe, it should be no problem as I can always blend it with my finger. The color looks cute and I like it so much. This lipstick lasts for about 3-4 hours with me.

I hope this review helps, leave me a comment below about this product :)

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill in #1 Blast of Blue and #3 Purpura

Eyes to Kill is one of many products that I could never get enough. It applies smoothly, the colors are amazing, the pigmentation is excellent. What more can I say?  :) Today I have Eyes to Kill in #1 Blast of Blue and #3 Purpura for review. I bought these few months ago when Giorgio Armani opened their store in DFS Galeria in Scotts Rd Singapore. Eyes to Kill retails for S$41 in Singapore.

#1 Blast of Blue

Blast of blue is a mixture of gold and blue eyeshadow. What I love about this is I can still choose to wear either blue or gold from the same pan. It’s quite easy to get the color that I want because the gold and the blue is quite widely separated. I like to wear the gold on my inner eyelid and the blue on my outer and my crease area to create smokey look.

I did a look with Blast of Blue. In this look, I did not use any eyeshadow other than Blast of blue. On my lip is Shu Uemura PK 335 .

 

#3 Purpura

This color is very elegant. It’s a mixture of purple and gold. One thing that distinguish this with blast of blue other than the color is the placement of the color. The color is scattered everywhere hence it’s hard for me to grab a single color out of this pan. This is the reason why I am liking blast of blue better than this.

The eye look in the picture below is a mixture of Purpura and Chanel Illusion d’Ombre in Abstraction. This is the same eye look that I did in the previous review about Chanel Abstraction.

Now let’s take a look of the swatch:

You can see that I swatched both color in two ways; one is to show the gold flecks and the other is to show the blue or purple from the pan. You can see that blast of blue shows more color difference than purpura. This swatch is taken with dry finger and in indoor lighting.

I hope you enjoy this review and leave me a comment below :)

Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terracotta Vernis in 02 Riviera

Hello beauties :)

Guerlain released two nail polish this summer.

  • Paradisio Luminous coral pink with a high-lacquer finish
  • Riviera Powerful electric indigo blue with subtly metallic finish

When I first saw these two polish at Tangs Beauty Hall, I know I will not be getting Paradisio as I think the color is too normal. I can find many other brands with much lower price selling a dupe for this color. However Riviera caught my attention as the color stands out from others. Finally I picked up Riviera.

Guerlain describes Riviera as “a powerful electric indigo blue with a subtly metallic finish. Pure rock ‘n’ roll on golden toes” . To be honest, Riviera is not my kind of color. Usually I am not a fan of electric blue with shimmer. I usually find it too daring on me. However I want to step out of my comfort zone and try having something different on my nails.

This image is taken from www.temptalia.com

This is my first Guerlain Nail Polish. I am sold by its packaging, especially the cap of the bottles. There’s nothing special about the bottle but the cap is unique. The material used to made the cap of the bottle is wood which is very tough and strong. There’s a guerlain logo carved on the top of the bottle. The box is also beautifully printed. I love how Guerlain print the gorgeous pattern inside the box. I always keep nail polish box with me; so having a nice nail polish box makes me happy :)

In the pictures below, you can see how unique is the cap of the bottle.

Now let’s talk about the formula and application. The formula was fine, it’s neither awesome nor awful. The application was uneven at the first coat but it was fine at the second layer. The formula was a bit on the thick side however this is controllable so this was not a big issue for me. One thing that I dislike is the brush; the brush is too round for my liking hence it’a a bit hard for me to apply this polish evenly. Moreover the cap size was too big for me to apply the nail polish. You can see the swatch of this nail polish below

direct sunlight 

indoor lighting

I agree with Guerlain’s description of this color. This is an indigo blue with metallic finish. However at certain lighting I also see a very deep purple in this polish. This nail polish is suitable for people who likes daring color on their nails, this polish is also suitable for people who wants to go for a night party or dinner.

Final thought:

Despite the so-so formula and the too big cap size, I still like this nail polish. The reason being that is very simple, the packaging covers all the flaws. I don’t have anything like this yet so I am liking this packaging very much. I don’t think I would be wearing this very often but I don’t have any regret buying this nail polish.

I hope you like this post and tell me what you think in the comment box below :)
