Read My Lips: YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in #19 Fuchsia in Rage

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in #19 Fuchsia in Rage

Every now and then, I love to splurge and indulge in a luxury lippie. Chanel, Dior and even Tom Ford lipsticks are lovely, but they’re not usually my first choice of brand to go to if I’m looking for an indulgent lipstick. It’s YSL.

I adore the Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks and I thought I’d share one of my favourite shades with you today, and that’s the one in #19 Fuchsia in Rage. Lisa Eldridge raved about this in one of her videos ages ago (I can’t even remember which one it was now) and when I saw her apply it on her lips, I knew I had to have it. When I was given a MYER gift voucher for my birthday, I knew exactly what I wanted and that was the #19.

Giving Paula’s Choice Skincare Another Go And This Time, It’s A Success!

Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel and RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum

I discovered Paula Begoun and her brand of beauty products, Paula’s Choice, years ago when I first moved to Australia. At that time, the range wasn’t as extensive as it is now and while I tried a few items and liked them, I moved on pretty quickly from them soon after I’ve finished most of them. Even though I enjoy her newsletter and articles on skincare, I have to admit that there are many times I’m skeptical at her favourite picks of skincare and makeup because they always include at least two of her own brand’s products in the list.

It’s hard to be objective about things like that especially when you have a vested interest in a few of the products so it wasn’t long before I stopped trying her products. A few years later, a number of bloggers whom I follow on Twitter began to discuss a lot about Paula’s Choice products and the brand started to intrigue me again. After they revamped the Paula’s Choice Australia website (they put the website on hold for a while and only allowed customers to purchase from the US website), I picked up a few items to try out. A couple of them were the Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel and the RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum.

I haven’t tried these products out before even before they revamped the packaging so they’re very new to me. And boy, it was love!

For Decent Powder Foundation Coverage, Call Bobbi Brown For Her Skin Weightless Powder Foundation

Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation

Even though I enjoy wearing foundations, I typically stick to liquid ones. Compacts, not so much. Even less so with compact powder foundations. When I tried the L’Oreal Infallible Powder Foundation, I still maintained that it worked better as a setting powder than actual foundation because there was barely any coverage, much less the lasting power.

When the Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation landed on my desk for review, I was sceptical as to how well it would work. Would it really be like an actual foundation with at least half decent coverage and lasting power? Or will it just be better as another setting powder?
