Review: YSL rouge volupt lipstick

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Bonjour ! 

There's nothing I love more than wearing a bright red lipstick in the summer. The YSL rouge volupt is one of my favorite's for that. I have it in shade 17, it's a very intense red when applied directly but you can also play with it and make it softer by applying a tiny bit in the center of your lips and then spreading it out with your finger so it gives a soft pink stain. 

I must say that the texture of this lipstick is lovely and creamy. It glides on really well when applied and it is very moisturizing. It also contains SPF which is always a plus. 

It is not only a very good product but the packaging is also amazing. It's very chic and elegant and looks very luxurious. There is also a little mirror at the top of the lipstick, I never really use it but it is a cute thing to add. 

Price wise, I got mine for 31,90€ at Sephora which is quite expensive for a lipstick. But I would definitely buy the other shades because the formulation and the packaging are just really good. 

On that note, hope you are having an amazing summer.


Take care. 


Tumblr inspiration No.1

Sunday, July 14, 2013

Bonjour ! 

So I was going to review a product but I just found out that it was discontinued so I'm going to do a little tumblr inspiration tonight. These are a few of the pictures I posted on my tumblr that inspired me. Seeing the picture of those lovely nails really makes me want to stop biting mine, especially since I aspire to become a makeup artist. I would much rather prefer to have makeup put on me by a lady with nice polished nails than not. I was thinking of trying gel nail varnish, I think that would help a lot with my nail biting problem :). 
I would like to thank you for all your lovely comments on my post when I rambled about not getting my loan. Well, a little update on that, I actually found a solution. Think positive and positive things will come to you ! So anyway, in September I will be moving away to Ireland. Which is quite scary but very exciting. I mean moving away from home for the first time and getting so many responsibilities thrown at you in a matter of days can be quite scary but I'm really looking forward to it because I'll finally become independent, I'll be in charge of my money and basically my life which is a very empowering feeling. A new chapter of my life will start soon. I really need to set up new goals for this 
upcoming year. I cannot stress enough the importance of goal setting. It really helps you move forward and grow, because you have a sense of purpose. 


Take care.
