YSL Fall Color Collection Swatch: Rouge Volupté Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick

Yves Saint Laurent ‘Rouge Volupté’ Lipstickicon has a new shade out for fall that is gorgeous! I love this lipstick in general, but often the shades are a bit out there for my tastes. However, the new Exquisite Plum shade is perfect. It looks rather dark in online shopping color swatches, but it isn’t quite so extreme on the skin, especially since you can apply it on the sheer side if desired.  Below is a swatch, along with a couple of lovely shades from  a Yves Saint Laurent ‘Ombres Duolumières’ Eye Shadow Duo in anise green and intense plum. I’ll review those at some point on Beauty and Fashion Tech.

YSL Rouge Lipstick Exquisite Plum Swatch get-the-look-fall2009revised

YSL Rouge Volupté  lipsticks are creamy, smooth, and packed with pigment. You can do a sheer swipe with them (which I did in the picture), but add a layer or two and you can also get a more intense look.  I assume the model in the picture is wearing the shade, but honestly, it was much more sheer for me in the store (which I prefer, so I didn’t try to get it too dark).

The packaging is also gorgeous. Personally, I think YSL makes some of the best lipsticks around (Dior is another favorite), but the price does reflect that.


Bourjois Effet 3D High Shine Lip Gloss Cell Phone Charm

Awhile back, I wrote about the e.l.f. cosmetics lip gloss cell phone charms. Lip gloss charms are becoming rather popular. While the e.l.f. charms are quite cheap, and as a few commenters noted, perhaps reflective of that in quality, there are some more expensive ones out there.

Bourjois 3D Lip GLoss Phone Charm
The Bourjois 3D Lip Gloss Cell Phone Charm is an awfully cute verision of Bourjois’ best-selling lip gloss, Effet 3D. It also is a member’s choice winner in the Cosmetic Executive Women Beauty Awards.
Sephora Lip Gloss Mobile Charm
Sephora’s Piiink My Mobiiile Lip Gloss Charm is yet another cute charm, that is a bit higher end. I guess I would call it middle since Sephora’s line of these items tend to be comparable to the better drugstore brands.

I keep coming across more and more of these. They are all so cute, I wish I could buy them all!

Elf Cosmetics Lip Gloss

Lip gloss is one of those products that can be quite nice at a very affordable price. Yes, there are some wonderful expensive ones as well, but you don’t have to spend a fortune for a decent gloss.

At e.l.f. cosmetics, most products are only $1 each. That allows for a whole lot of makeup for very little money!

E.l.f. also offers some great lip product sets. One of my favorites is the ultra cute Hypershine Mini Cell Phone Lip Gloss Charms. The little lip gloss charms can be changed in and out, and at only $5, this is one heck of a deal! I have also seen this set at Target.

Another nice set is the Hypershine Gloss Box Set of 8. This give you 8 glosses at $1 each. The hypershine glosses remind me quite a bit of Bonne Belle glosses, but with a bit more color. Or take a look at the Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF Box Set of 5.
E.l.f. offers a wide range of other lip products and general cosmetics. Outside of a few of the lip glosses, I haven’t tried a large amount of them, but at the cheap prices, I plan to get more. I will report back when I do!
