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 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.

I saved my favorite for last. I think I might buy this one. The Giorgio Armani Summer Sheers Set iconis a great way to obtain a pretty sheer summer lip look. From the picture I love the shades! It is a bit pricey for my budget though, so I’ll have to ponder it!

Eyeko Strawberry Fat Balm

Eyeko Fat Balm I was sent a few Eyeko cosmetics to try. Eyeko is a UK company (but they ship worldwide) with cute line of products. The marketing is somewhat anime/manga in appearance and it also reminds me a bit of the Korean company Etude House.

One of the best products I received was their Strawberry fat Balm. The balm comes in a short, fat tube, so it has a large surface area. The balm itself has a light tint and is medium in weight—not overly glossy, but no all that waxy either. It also is tasty!

Mostly though, the thing is just darn cute. I’m a sucker for cute packaging, so I am really liking Eyeko’s products!
