YSL Rouge Volupte Shine

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine 


Oh my...These are AMAZING. I haven't really tried too many products from YSL apart from the touche eclat, however when I saw these lipsticks and their packaging it was really hard to resist and I am so so pleased I splurged out and bought my first colour -  Corail Intuitive #15.


I can honestly say this is the best lipstick I have ever used before and I will continue to use these forever! First of all the creamy, buttery-like texture of these are dreamy to apply to your lips and instead of drying your lips out like other lip sticks they actually hydrate your lips and keep them moisturised (perfect for the winter). The second thing that instantly made these different as well was the amount of colour these left on my lips after just one application, with other brands of lipsticks I find myself re applying loads for any colour to appear. This also means that these will last for ages considering you don't have to use as much product, so as far as I'm concerned worth the hefty £24.00. Thirdly, the smell of these are lipsticks are SOOOOO nice, it is a peachy, passion fruit smell and it is the most amazing scent of make up I have ever smelt. Don't get me wrong, the smell isn't the most important part of the make up but it is such a bonus that these lipsticks have the NICEST SMELL EVER! And of course, lets not forget the packaging of these products.... such a nice quality case and I love how you can see the colour on the outside of the lip product.  

So after I had decided I had fallen in love with this lipstick (which was almost immediately) I then bought my second colour - Fuchsia In Excess #5.


I have a picture of the two products next to one another so you can see them together and how they compare in colour. I would say my favorite colour out of the two is Corail Intuitive #15 but that's purely because I LOVE coral colours and I think it suits my paler complexion better then the darker shade. But seriously Fuchsia In Excess #5 looks amazing when you are dressing up/going on a night out.

I could not recommend this product more, these are the most perfect lip products I've tried yet! Seriously... please go and try these! (Oh and p.s you could get stuck at the YSL counter for ages, I was there for almost an hour... there are SO many different colours and they are all so nice).


L'oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution 

Skin perfection 



This is my first ever post and I have decided to dedicate it to the amazing micellar solution that L'Oreal have created!

It is a 3 in 1 purifying water and it is from their new range - skin perfection. It claims to do three things for your skin...
1. Dissolves make-up
2. Unclogs pores and removes impurities
3. Tones and soothes skin




If you haven't heard of micellar waters before it is essentially a water that acts as a magnet so draws out any makeup or impurities from your skin. As far as I'm concerned this is a miracle! The first time I tried this water out I poured a tiny dab on to a piece of cotton wool and swiped it over my face, I was so surprised how quickly my make up came off and how little I used for my face to be entirely make up free. I still like to cleanse my face after with a cleansing oil/lotion and cloth but removing my make up first with this water makes my face feel so fresh and clean and makes sure my face is entirely make up free!

Another reason why i so madly love this lotion is because I have a completely separate bottle in my bathroom cupboard for when I'm cleaning my make up brushes. This removes EVERY trace of makeup from my make up brushes and so quickly as well! I will empty a whole bottle into a bowl and then place all my brushes into it and within five minutes my brushes are spotless! The price ranges from around £3 to £5 pounds depending on where you are shopping. (I purchased mine for £3.32 from Superdrug because they always seem to have offers on).

I have tried some of the other L'Oreal Skin Perfection line but haven't been really impressed with the other bits and bobs they have to offer (Cleansing oil, Soft toner). If you can get your hands on one of these you must go try it, you wont regret it! It is almost identical to the bioderma water and it so much easier to get hold of and so inexpensive compared. I am sold.
