YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in 19 Beige Aquarelle

I bet you have met the following lipstain one way or another: YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in 19 Beige Aquarelle.
I must admit: I am a sucker for everything YSL. Okay, not for their mascaras, but hey, I have a till-death commitment with another brand. >.< 

Whenever I come across a duty free in any airport with even the least time for shopping, I must stop at the YSL counter to see what they have in stock.^^ Even tho I try to behave myself and ask myself if I really need that gazillionth pink/mauve/rosy/nude lippie, sometimes the dark side wins. That's how this sweety ended in my purse =D

Description: "Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long-wear of a stain for a truly innovative lip product. A lightweight texture that immediately melts onto lips. Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain delivers intense glossy colour for an extremely long lasting new kind of shine. The applicator’s unique slanted tip and short soft bristles allow for flawless application with perfect precision"

The applicator is indeed precise, I need to dip it back to get enough to cover the upper and lower lips.

Texture is sticky which doesn't bother me until I happen to lick my bad taste, NOT press your lips together! Gross! #_# 

Beige Aquarelle is a nice pinkish beige. Not a strong one and I like that. Sadly it won't stay on all day long but at least you can pull out this chic piece and reapply! ^.^ 

Price is 35USD and you can find the ingredients on the website (I'm way too lazy to copy-paste it here LOL)

Shu Uemura Tint In Gelato Lip and Cheek Color in PK02

Shu Uemura's Tint in Gelato is a 2-in-1 product. Can be used as liptint or as blush.
Its texture reminds me of souffle. Fluffy and lightweight. Gelato is such a good name for it.

The sponge applicator packs just the righ amount of product on your lips (haven't tested on cheeks...sorry!) to get an opaq finish. You can go light but you can go layer it for ohlalaaa strong lips.
Since this is a liptint, it fades evenly, leaving a nice "tint" behind. Personally, I consider liptints the perfect lipsticks.
The color is PK02 which stands for Milky Framboise. Mmmm sounds tasty! 
5,4g costs 28 USD

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited (Brave Beauty - Rose)

Another short post for, this time for a Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Brave Beauty. Color is Rose from the Vision of Beauty collection.
I'm a big fan of Shu Uemura lippies, especially of the Unlimited range. They might not be longwearing *cough*disappears in 30mins max*cough* but they are not heavy, smooth out chapped lips and they don't settle into lines (mattes are different tho).

Color description: "prettiest floral that adds some romance to your rock look
On the spot IMHO :D

At 30 USD it is not the cheapest lippie out there, but one of the prettiest ones!

MAC Cream Color Base in Breaking Ground

Just a short swatching of MAC Cream Color Base in Breaking Ground. Color is described as "light iridescent mauve" and as a mauve-lover, I bought it.

These Cream Color Bases are multi-use items, meaning they can be used as lipcolor, blush, highlighter, under or over foundation, some can be worn even on eyelids. It depends on the color and what the box says. Not all colors can be used everywhere. 
Actually, it's a shame but due to my crease-freak eyelids I never wear these as eyeshadows =(

Priced at 21 USD it is cheaper than other MAC blushes (powder or cream) plus it's versatile.
Not to mention that its pro version (sans the case, horray to mix&match palettes) costs only 14USD!!! Much better, huh?!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Raw Garden Eyeshadow Palette in Chronos

For a long time of eyeing the brand I finally surrendered and started ordering (strictly during sales :P) and I must say I'm glad that I did.
First, let me show you the beautiful Chronos Raw Garden eyeshadow palette from Rouge Bunny Rouge:

Even its box is pretty! :)

And the actual case! <3 p="">

Aww, such beautiful colors! *____* They are:
Champagne Pewter Highlighter: a peachy metallic champagne

Metallic Rosy Brown: a peacock pink and gold shade
Aged Bronze: an interchanging, cool olive metallic
Aubergine Gunmetal: a dark, gold-tinged eggplant-grey metallic
Midnight Blue Gunmetal: a deep, smoky blue-grey metallic 

They have decent color payoff and blend well. No worry about fallout.

Just reading the description makes you long for the stuff:
"Suitably presented in a luxuriantly lacquered magnetic étui, the colour theme of the Limited Eye Shadow Palette RAW GARDEN in ‘Chronos’ is inspired by the lustre and varying shades seen in the darkness and dancing shadows of the Black Pearls.
Echoing the delicate design on the lid of the Limited Eye Shadow Palette case, each Long-lasting Eye Shadow is embossed with a hummingbird on the wing motive."

In case you decide to indulge, the price of this Limited Edition palette is 55 EUR.
