A while ago, I reviewed YSL Rouge Volupte Orange Shiver and today, please give a warm welcome to another lipstick from the  YSL collection – YSL Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre Fuchsia Symbole 110.

Breathtaking, luxe packaging.  The lipstick is encased in a gold rectangular case with beautifully embossed YSL.  Eye-catching and irresistible.  And that’s before we even get onto the lipstick itself!!

Fuchsia Symbole is a bright pink which simply pops on any skin tone.  But be careful if your teeth aren’t bright white because this shade can make them appear more yellow.

During application, I noticed a rose scent (strangely similar to a Lancome mascara I own) but once on the lips, this scent fades.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre isn’t as creamy as YSL Rouge Volupte but it has a lovely sheen satin finish.  Doesn’t dry out the lips and because I love bringing it out to reapply, I haven’t got much of an idea about the lasting power.

Will I be buying more from the range?  Heck, yes!!!

My Current Top 5 Favourite Lipsticks

Hi ladies, today I am guest posting on Styling You where you can read about how my obsession for lipsticks came to life.  I’d like to thank Nikki for this fantastic opportunity – I’ve met Nikki twice and I can tell you that she has great taste in lippies!! As well as sharing my passion for lipsticks, I was asked to share my current top 5 favourite lipsticks and, oh boy, it took me 2 long weeks to come up with the list – and that’s because I love so many!!  Anyway, without further ado, please allow me to share…

Lancome L'Absolu Nu, NYX Apple, FACE OF AUSTRALIA Malibu Barbie, YSL Rouge Volupte, Shu Uemura Supreme Shine

My Current Top 5 Favourite Lipsticks

1.  Lancome L’Absolu Nu 103 Rouge Mousseline ($49 AUD) – Sheer plum with microshimmer which gives a shiny, moisturising finish!  Doesn’t have the heavy lipstick feel and has a delicate scent.  LOVE!

2.  NYX Black Label Lipstick Apple ($10.95 AUD) – Bright orange-red which gets compliments EVERY time I wear it!  Great pop of colour!  LOVE!

3.  YSL Rouge Volupte 14 Orange Shiver ($55 AUD) – This is a trendy peachy-orange-nude shade perfect for Summer.  I have mentioned before that I love the luxe packaging with a mirror on the lid – genius!  LOVE!

4.  FACE OF AUSTRALIA Lip Quench SPF30+ Malibu Barbie ($8.45 AUD)- Flirtatiously loud pink shade at an afforable price!  Check out other colours in the range.  LOVE!

5.  Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine RD 165 ($29.30 AUD at a membership online stockist but usual RRP is around $50) – Sheer shiny shimmery red with sexy packaging.  Slightly disappointed with the number/letters name of it, but still LOVE!

 Do any of these tickle your fancy?  And what are your current top 5 favourite lippies?


FACE OF AUSTRALIA have recently launched 6 new lipstick shades in their Lip Quench collection and I got my paws on 3 of these babies to swatch for you today – Pink Champagne, Malibu Barbie and Forbidden Fruit.  I love lipsticks which have names rather than letters and numbers (I’m looking at you Missha and Shu Uemura!)

Packaged in a tube with a see-through lid makes it easy to see which lippy to reach for.  I find these FACE OF AUSTRALIA lipsticks moisturising with the shea butter and jojoba oil – which means that they glide onto lips easily.  It is semi-matte and I am aware that I am wearing lipstick when I wear this…if that makes sense.  And hello SPF 30+!!!!

There is a scent which is slightly floral, but herbal-ish (?) at the same time – but it’s not strong and overpowering so fear not.

Lasting power is 2-3 hours with Forbidden Fruit lasting the longest.

Overall, love the cheap and cheerfulness of the FACE OF AUSTRALIA Lip Quench range and did I mention that it has SPF 30+?

Lipstick Swatches

Pink Champagne is a pastel pink.

Malibu Barbie is a bright pink with lilac undertones.

Forbidden Fruit is a blue-based red which means you’ll have whiter teeth when wearing this!

Firstly, allow me to apologise if my last Lip Art tutorial offended you with its dodgy-ness.  Hand on my heart – I DID NOT realise that it could come off as dodgy!!!  I was seriously thinking about lollipops!! >_<

Anyway, moving on…  I have a Gradient Lips Lip Art today!!!  Nothing dodgy here!!!  And it’s dedicated to Beauty Snippets and Prettymom because they suggested this on Twitter!  This look is based on nymphette415‘s Gradient Lips tutorial.  Very easy and looks pretty cool!

And uh…there’s a cameo appearance from Tasha, AKA facial hair!!!

Introducing Lip Stalker’s Review On Sukin Nourishing Lip Treatment…

Made with natural ingredients including cocoa butter, shea butter and jojoba oil, my lips were pleasantly surprised by its ability to restore moisture to my dry flaky lips.

I am not a fan of Vaseline on my lips and let me assure you that it is way superior!!  (Sorry Vaseline lovers!)

It’s one of my favourites to use under matte lipsticks.
