Look: My HG Red Lipstick!!

I can officially say that I have found my HG (holy grail) red lipstick! Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Allure in either #17 or #18 are my red lipstick to end all red lipsticks. I’m pretty confident that I will not buy another red lipstick again (unless it is like magic or something). This stuff goes on like butter, stays on like a stain, and is moisturizing, smooth, vibrant…it doesn’t fade or clump or bleed into my lips. If you’re not convinced, then I urge you to go to your local YSL counter (Nordstrom, Saks, Neiman, or even Sephora!) and get them to try it on you. Then go the rest of the day or night, or just shopping trip and take a look. You’ll be convinced and rush back to get it!



For this look I used:

  • Eyes: UDPPS (primer), Rubenesque PP (base), All That Glitters (inner lid), Expensive Pink (middle lid), Amber Lights (outer lid), Illusionary Burning Ambition Mineralized e/s (brown for crease, light gold for highlight), Orpheus Kohl Power (liner), Chanel Exceptionnel mascara
  • Cheeks: Bobbi Brown Flame Shimmer Blush
  • Lips: Brick l/l + YSL Rouge Allure l/s #18

Go see more pictures – you have to see close-ups of the lips!

    Pretty, I love neutral looks. I can’t wait to try out YSL’s lipstick. I just fell in love with their golden glosses over the weekend (even though the are quite sheer…I purchased Golden Whisper).
