Inside My Mum’s Makeup Bag

Sometimes it feels really weird that I love makeup. My Mum couldn’t care less about it, and I did not really read glossy magazines or watch beauty shows on TV growing up.  (I did do it all but it was when I already knew that I love all things beauty).

My Mum did have quite a few lipsticks and a mascara but she was not obsessed with all those things and wore makeup only for special occasions. She did like perfume though, as long as I remember.

So I’ve decided to ask her what makeup products she truly loves. And since I’ve mentioned perfume – her most used one these days.

Before I start I have to mention that she does use  foundation and mascara occasionally but  she doesn’t really have a favourite and would just use whichever [I give her]. However, the  products shown above she loves and uses on a regular basis.

As you can already guess, Mum’s favourite makeup product is a lipstick. She has a fair complexion with dark eyes and very dark hair so bright reds and berries look amazing on her.

When I first wrote about the lipstick/balm trend back in February I just knew that I had to try Dior Addict and YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Lipstciks/Lip Balms.

You can find my review and swatches of Dior Addict here and today I will tell you my opinion about the YSL.

First of all I have to say that I really love the design. To tell the truth, I used to dislike the golden design  of YSL or D&G but now, although I already like it,  I have to say that I love this silver design much more.

Volupte Sheer Candy has a classic YSL lipstick design which looks chic  and feels heavy. I personally like it.

The second thing that you notice is the delicious mango scent.  I can also say that it tastes nice, it is sweet and light, but don’t ask me how do I know that 😉

As you can see I have three shades and they are:

  • 02 Dewy Papaya, sheer fresh peach
  • 04 Succulent Pomegranate, sheer bright pink with red undertones
  • 06 Luscious Cherry, sheer cherry red with golden shimmer

So what about the application? I find that these lip balms go on smoothly and I personally find them really moisturising and hydrating. They are not gloopy or waxy in any way. I already see you wondering
