Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipstick Haul!

I was really bummed out since I had to return those two Mac mineralize blushes friom my previous haul.

So I splurged for YSL lipsticks yesterday. I have been wanting these for a very long time now and I finally got them! You can only get them at The Bay downtown (Eatons) and at any Holtrenfew store. Also, I'm not too sure if the Sephora stores in Canada carry them.

These babies are amazing. There are many pretty colours to choose from. They are literally silk to my lips and are incredibly CREAMY! They just glide on like butter. WOW! I have never felt this kind of texture before and I thought Mac Cremesheen lipsticks were very creamy. lol You just cannot compare these at all. I love the sweet mango-ish scent that it has. I love the packaging as's just SO ELEGANT! It also has a little mirror on the top of the lipstick lid. It's just AMAZING! I love these lipsticks and I will cherish them forever! ;)

# 8 Fetish Pink
A gorgeous blue based pink and I do see a hint of lilac undertone in it. It does look like a barbie pink colour but it's toned down and wearable as you can easily build the intensity.

# 13 Peach Passion
A gorgeous coral peachy shade. This colour seems very unique and it's just LOVE! If I had to choose what's my favourite of all the YSL shades...I would definitely pick this one.

Comparison Swatches
It's similar to Mac's Pink Nouvea lipstick but more wearable and not as bold.

I'm pretty much lemming for 1-2 more YSL lipsticks. I love all the colours. I'm lemming for #1...I should ask the SO for a couple of more lippies! lol

OH yeh...I also got Nars Chihuahua lipgloss. This is a very pretty neutral nude pink colour. It's more wearable than Turkish Delight and safer for my skintone. lol It looks gorgeous on top of nude lippies!

Hey Zerin,
I don’t own a single item from NARS! I know I’m quite surprised for my part! Can you recommend me some lipsticks & blush best suited for our desi skin tone? As I’m thinking of getting a blush or maybe a lipstick from NARS :D

Zerin, we think so alike! I just bought one of these online yesterday (I got Nude Beige). I've been wanting them for a long time but didn't want to pay full price. I'm tempted by the two colours you got too...
