NARS, MAC & YSL Haul!

Hello everyone! I’ve been buying quite a few things online and picked up a couple of things from Mecca Maxima! If you follow me in Instagram you may have already seen a sneak peak!

image

The first thing I have is a YSL Glossy Stain, this is in the shade #7 Corail Aquatique! I am not usually a fan if coral shades haha, I’m not sure how this ones gonna go!

image

Next I have some of my favourite goodies, NARS! From NARS I have a sharpener, Foundation, Multiple & Cream Blush!

Yves Saint Laurent Golden Gloss in Pebble, Review & Swatches!

image

One of the top selling lip products by Yves Saint Laurent is the Golden Gloss, last year Golden Pebble was released amongst three other shades for Summer. I received Golden Pebble for my birthday and although this was a Summer collection this particular shade screams Winter.

image

The packaging is absolutely gorgeous as you would expect from YSL. The gloss sits in a thick transparent plastic square tube, the tube twists open and closed. The lid is a golden mirrored plastic with the Yves Saint Laurent logo on the front. The plastic tube is transparent revealing the actual product inside.

image

YSL describes the Golden Gloss as “Worth its weight in gold, this gorgeous gloss dresses lips in a sophisticated, high-shine shimmer that’s truly precious. Sparkling 24 carat gold flecks (0.2%) create a mirror-like effect for guaranteed glamour, while a complex of nourishing oils protect and hydrate for optimal comfort. Scented with a subtle hint of Mango that’s utterly irresistible.”

image

The scent is a little overwhelming to me, it definitely isn’t mango… Maybe peach? It reminds me a bit of the smell of Rimmel lip products.

image

When first applied the gloss sits on the lips and seems to slowly melt in. You can definitely feel it on your lips but it isn’t sticky or tacky, you won’t feel the glitter at all.

image

This gloss can be worn sheer or heavy, when sheer the Golden Pebble gives a gorgeous fresh out of the cold look. I prefer to wear Golden Pebble sheer. The colour is described as ‘burgundy plum’ which is quite accurate. The gloss in the tube appears overly glittery but it definitely isn’t on the lips, purple is the predominant colour shown in the glitter.

image

If you have constant dry lips I think another shade might suit you better, Golden Pebble can sink into fine lines and cracks.

image

I haven’t tried any of the other shades, I am liking this product! If you have a Yves Saint Laurent counter available you should have a look at the Golden Gloss selection, they are a best-seller for a reason!

Late Birthday Haul!

Hey everyone! As you may know, my birthday was on the 7th and as a part of my present I got to place a Benefit Cosmetics order! I know, my boyfriend is a keeper! He also told me that he has a few parts of my present which I could have now or all at once, surprising to everyone I wanted to wait! I also decided to wait to get my present from my mum, I’m just weird like that. Well today my Benefit order came and so did the last part of my present, second birthday, yay!

Birthday Wishlist

My birthday is just under two weeks away and every year I put together some kind of list for my boyfriend. The idea is I pick a list of things I would like for my birthday and he chooses some things from the list! Usually I tell my mum what I want most haha.

This list has been saved in Wordpad for a while but I thought I’d make it all pretty for my Blog!

list1

MAC Single Eyeshadow – Blanc Type $33 AUD
This is a really pretty base colour. I nearly bought it couple of weeks ago but didn’t, I don’t know why!

MAC Lipstick – Modesty, Pink Plaid & Snob $36 AUD
I only own 3 MAC lipsticks and Snob is one of them, my first actually! I’m nearly out so I thought having another will stop me from holding back on using it! Modesty & Pink Plaid are absolutely gorgeous too!

list2

Yves Saint Laurent Golden Gloss – Pebble $48 AUD
I think the Golden Glosses are absolutely beautiful, ever since I saw them I wanted one which was another problem, what shade?! I think this would be the perfect first YSL lip product to own. Pebble really stood out to me and that’s what I’m sticking with… Quick! Before I change my mind!

Stila Sun Bronzing Powder – Shade 2 $30.30 AUD
I have never found my HG bronzer, Nars Laguna is good… but not the best I feel. I have read quite a bit about this bronzer, almost every review said shade 1 was too orange but shade 2 was perfect, so shade 2 it is!

Nars The Multiple – Riviera $50.50 AUD
Nars Multiples are one of my favourite products. Ever. I have two but they seem so lonely…

Nars Ita Kabuki Artisan Brush $50.50 AUD
So beautiful, I have wanted this since I got the Yachiyo brush

Thanks for reading!
