Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre Lipsticks

Yves Saint Laurent are launching the new gorgeous range of lipsticks called Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre which will be available from September.

The packaging is almost like the original Rouge Pur Couture but it doesn’t have a dark line, it has a pure gold packaging.

The promo looks stunning, I think it would look amazing as a part of a holiday campaign.

There are 13 shades, including  shade 101 Violet Singulier, which is a purple shade  that you can probably mix with other shades, or use on it’s own if you are brave enough.

The other shades are:

I will start with the shades that I like the best, now these six babies look awesome!

  • 108 Ocre Rose, golden beige pink
  • 109 Corail D’Or, soft coral
  • 110 Fuchsia

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eyes Wide Open Brightening Liner Duo, Review, Photos, Swatches

I’ve been meaning to write the review of the Rouge Bunny Rouge Eyes Wide Open Brightening Liner Duo for a month or two, but I think that now, with their new A Cappella look released, it’s a perfect timing.

I LOVE multi-tasking products and this is a perfect example. This is a pencil with two ends – Highlighter and Brightener.

The Highlighter is a pearly milky white and the Brightener is a soft matte pink. It is suggested that you use the pearly shade under the eye brows and in the inner and outer corners of your eyes. And as for the Brightener – in the inner rim of your eye to make your eyes look more open and yourself look more beautiful as the result.

I really like the texture of both sides as they are soft enough to glide on the skin. I think it’s a perfect product for travelling as  it is so compact  and you can blend it with your fingers (so no additional brushes). Actually I use it with the fingers all the time.

The highlighter is a beautiful colour that gives a natural highlight to your eyes and face. RBR have gorgeous highlighters, but if you can also use this one  instead of your regular highlighter if you wish.

As for the brightener, you

There is one question, that I get asked ALL the time. I get e-mails, comments, people contact me on Facebook and Twitter to find out where they can  buy a certain product.

This is why I’ve decided to add the Find a Product button which you can see above and below most of the posts.

Here is the example.

What Would Be An Insiration for Your Makeup Collection?

This week as I was on my way to work I’ve started thinking about the makeup collection I would create if I could.

The strange thing is that I wasn’t really thinking about the colours or textures, I was thinking about the theme of the collection, design and the names for my products.

I guess my first collection would have a theme of Norse mythology and Vikings, a collection inspired by the beautiful Scandinavian nature and fascinating (at least for me) culture. I would like to use some of the ornaments and illustrations which are typical for the Scandinavia and already have a lot of names in my head.

Luckily, I know the topic quite well as it’s been a hobby of mine for years plus I’ve studied it at uni so I have lots of ideas running in my head. If only I could make it come true.

And what about you? If you could create your own makeup collection what would be your inspiration? Please share as I am curious to hear your ideas 🙂
