Yves Saint Laurent Blue Lip Gloss Pur Review and Lip Swatches

Remember my post about the blue lip glosses? So today I want to tell you about one of them – the blue Gloss Pur in #11 by YSL which is from their summer 2011 makeup collection.

I like Yves Saint Laurent glosses and already reviewed one of my Golden Glosses which you can see here.

But let’s go back to this blue baby. So what is so special about it?

The fact that it is blue! Now obviously, it doesn’t look blue on your lips but the fact that it is blue in tube makes it so special. It reminds me of the Dior gloss from the spring collection which looked grey/silver in the tube but nothing like that on the lips.

But you know what you are using and that makes it special. I have so many glosses and this one is definitely one of those that stand out when I go through my collection, it catches the eye immediately.

On the lips it

BB Creams. Are They Worth The Hype?

It looks like everyone is talking about BB creams  these days. Some say they changed their lives, some that these are too thick and not worth the attention.

It seems like I am the only person on Earth who still never tried any BB Cream (hopefully) yet.

But what about you? Have you tried any? Have you found the one you like? Do you think it’s all worth the hype?

Unfortunately, I don’t know the original source of this picture

Since I haven’t tried these, I don’t see the point of posting the official information as you can find it on the websites of a lot of brand’s. But I wanted to share this wonderful post by the Muse where she writes about  the difference between a BB Cream and a Tinted Moisturizer.

You can also find reviews of different BB Creams over at Cosmetic Candy and My Women Stuff.
