Colour Code

Now that YSL is becoming Saint Laurent Paris, do the cosmetics change name too? I guess so! Curious about the logo. I like the existing one a lot.

Are peeps are going to buy up all the Chyc collection soon too, or anything that still uses the letter "Y"? Anyway, on to more pressing matters. Like the actual cosmetics.

Because we all need to use lippie, no matter what the name or brand. My latest obsession: YSL's Rouge Pur Couture glossy lip colour. It looks like a gloss, feels like a gloss, but stains almost just like a lipstick. None of that sticky texture. And pure pigment that's just beautiful.

Number 9 is definitely my favourite. A bold, bold red, it's best when applied in three layers -- don't blot in between, just let it dry and then coat again. For daytime, one coat is enough to give your lips a little pretty tint. I'm not into the pinky pinks, so my next best choice is #8, which is a coral orangey pink. It's not nearly as pigmented as the red, but offers a nice salmony hue.

These come off as soon as you eat, and don't go into changing rooms to try on white tops unless you want to stain them like mad... but for colour, they're unbeatable. I will repurchase.
