Look: Bell Bottom Blue Base

I didn’t really plan this look so well…I wish I had because then I could have used Delft PP as a base rather than Soft Ochre which is warm beige. After layering shadow over it, however, it disappeared, but I would have liked the blue to have been even more vibrant with a blue base. Anyway, these cool colors ended up coming together nicely and I was really happy with the result. I was planning on wearing a cool-toned nude lipstick, and this one is more on the pink edge, but I liked it!

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!

Look: Love My Lips in YSL!!!

OMG I LOOOOOVE this YSL lipstick!!! Rouge Allure rocks my world! I typically hate wearing red because I pair it with red lips which are so hard to wear. Until I found this Yves Saint Laurent lipstick! So for Day 7 of Neutral week, I did a softer eye and vamped it up with red lips. I can’t tell you how in love with this look I am :-) What do you think? Happy End of Coloruza’s Neutral Week!!!

Oh, and I gotta add that I applied this lipstick with a lip brush and it lasted (without bleeding!!!) until I ate, then I touched up, but it’s lasting power is tremendous and it didn’t dry out my lips…which was awesome because I didn’t use any gloss on top. Truly AMAZING stuff!
