bold lips by YSL & MAC

I've been obsessed with lip colors lately, which is strange since I'm never a lipstick wearer. I don't even bother to put balm on my lips unless they are chapped, so let alone any lipstick. but I guess makeup goes with fashion and the more I looked at the beautiful colors launched in the recent seasons, and especially when orange became a big hit during this summer, I have succumbed to the power of the beautiful bold lips. So the love story begins: YSL, Tom Ford, MAC, Makeup Forever and forever I'm in love.

YSL just recently launched the new Rouge Pur Couture collection with 18 beautiful, highly pigmented colors. the most coveted shades are no doubt the Rouge Blanc & Rouge Noir. the salesperson at YSL counter told me they are short on both colors and there's already a waiting list. just think of the possibilities of creating your own shade of lip color with these magical lightening and darkening wands! I tried both and like Blanc better.

in the same collection, the signature color as told is No. 7 Le Fuchsia. it's the color used on all the models on the YSL fw 2010/11 runway. I love this color and it really pops to light up the face. somehow my camera is not reflecting the true shade and I was wearing the lip gloss No. 5 Pure Plum on top.

MAC Dare to Wear Lipglass are limited edition so get them before they go out. I like the pearlize effect as lips get really shimmery and shiny wearing it alone. there are superfine, tiny glimmers in the tubes and the glitters hold a long wear.
