YSL Gloss Volupte Swatches

Hello hello!

First of all, let me wish you all a great 2014 ahead! We certainly wish that everything will go on smoothly this and more and more great things to come!

So here’s our first post in the year of 2014! YSL releases their new range of lip glosses. I am lucky enough to receive few shades of the lip glosses. The shades of the lip glosses consists of 3 ranges; irresistibly, sinfully iridescent, scandalously gold.  The information of YSL Gloss Volupte can be found here.








The packaging of these Gloss Volupte is similar to YSL Rouge Volupte. The cap of the lip gloss is made with golden metal and there’s a YSL logo in the middle which makes the packaging looks luxurious. As you can see in the picture above, the applicator is designed uniquely so that the application of the lipgloss is better. I like the design of  applicator as it looks distinct compared to other brands and it looks so cute to me. It resembles the shape of our lips. Moreover this applicator helps me to apply the gloss more precise on my lip and it gives me the ability to control the amount of glosses I want to have on my lip.




The gloss feels lightweight and it does not feel sticky to me. The shade 206 Twisted Oran is really pigmented. If  you are looking for a pigmented with daring shade, this would be a perfect lipgloss for you. For me, Rose Orfevre & Rose Fusion would be my favorite among the 4. Gloss Volupte does not have the shiniest gloss; it provides decent shine and it is not too much. This would depend on people’s preference whether you like a high shine gloss or just a decent shine. The last thing to add here, is that this gloss contains a unique YSL scent. The scent is the same as what it contains in YSL Rouge Volupte.

Here’s the swatches on my lips:




I have added a nude lipstick underneath the lipgloss on the photo below to show what it looks like when it is layered on top of nude lipstick.













So what is your pick from this collection? Share with me :)

I hope this swatches helps! Have a BEAUTIFUL year ahead…!

Shu Uemura Takashi Murakami Enchanted Black Parallel Palette



I picked this up in Changi airport two weeks ago. I couldn’t resist myself getting this palette as the texture of the eyeshadow is so soft and smooth when I swatch it. The eye and cheek palette is available in two colors – enchanted black parallel/ full pink parallel palette. I picked the enchanted black palette as the palette offers more vibrant shades.



The eye shadows in this palette are incredibly soft and smooth. There are two types of formulation of eyeshadow in this palette; the pressed formula and the silk smooth formula. There are 4 shades of the  pressed formula eyeshadow which comes in a bigger pan.The silk smooth formula comes in a smaller pan and there are 3 shades in this palette.

The pressed form feels powdery and smooth, I love the softness and smoothness of their pressed eyeshadow. The shades are nicely pigmented and i can hardly see any fall outs.

The silk smooth eyeshadow has a different feeling compared to the pressed when it is touched. The silk smooth eyeshadow has a creamier texture but it doesn’t feel slippery or wet. It has better pigmentation compared to the pressed formula and it is very smooth. I agree that Shu Uemura named this eyeshadow formulation as silky smooth. It is as smooth as silk :)

Here’s the swatch of the eyeshadow in order of the positioning of the shades in the palette.





And now here’s the swatch according to the formula:

Pressed Formula



Silk Smooth



 All the shades in this palette are nicely pigmented and they have beautiful texture. I find the colors here are nicely combined especially for smokey eye look. I really love the dark green shade; the metallic shade is so gorgeous. I love to use dark green to create a smokey look as it is less dramatic but yet it still gives a bigger eye effect.

Final Thoughts:

Overall I love this palette for their vibrand colors and beautiful texture and pigmentation. I love the range of eyeshadow colors which are not too neutrals but at the same time it offers shades that I would wear quite often. The silk smooth eyeshadow has gorgeous pigmentation with no fall out. Moreover the blush shade is something that I would usually wear. There’s no reason for me to dislike this piece :)



Thank you for reading!

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

Shu Uemura The Lightbulb fluid foundation

I didn’t even remember when was the last time I bought myself a foundation. Once I have one that I like, I will use it for quite some time. Anyway after seeing so many good reviews through Instagram, I finally decided to go to Shu Uemura counter and try it myself.

My latest foundation addition is Shu Uemura the lightbulb fluid foundation (27ml), retail in Australia for 65AUD and the sponge sold separately which I decided not to get it.


when seeking higher coverage, natural glow tends to be lost… but, now, paradoxical benefits coexist thanks to shu uemura’s expertise in oil technology and an original carefully hand-finished sponge. tap the foundation with the sponge and discover

 - natural glow yet high coverage
– long-lasting moisture yet exquisite fit

 12h moisture, mineral pigments

 the unprecedented combination of the lightbulb foundation and the all-new sponge empowers you to glow under any light.

allergy tested

- tested under dermatological control – suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin – non-comedogenic – tested on Asian women

 **Information above taken from Shu Uemura Website**


It comes with a pump which I thought very essential in a foundation for easy access. Below are all the liquid foundations that I have, not including compact foundations. Seeing my little collections, I feel like buying more foundations now. Any recommendation?


For texture, I would say its quite thicker compare to GA & Chanel PL but not as thick as Chanel VA. I would also say this one is medium coverage.





Lastly, my face with Shu Uemura lightbulb foundation and powder only. I agree it gives me a natural glow as they claimed it. However, I suggest to visit the counter and asked the MUA to try it on your face. That’s what I did before buying foundations :)

Overall, one of my favorite foundation at the moment beside Chanel PL.


Thanks for reading!

“The unique shape of this patented applicator was designed
in three dimensions so that each application can be equally:

thanks to the tapered tip that creates a clean edge along
the contours and corners of the lips.

thanks to the wider, curved mid-section that perfectly shapes
the lips in a single, intuitively-guided wave of the wand.

thanks to the exceptional flexibility provided by the suppleness
of the applicator’s material and hollow section.

thanks to the mini reservoir in its core that provides just the right
amount of gloss which is then generously yet consistently
spread across the lips’ broadest surfaces.
