First impression of YSL Rouge Volupte 15 Corail Extreme... & dupes


I had a very eventful week, and because I was feeling pretty happy, I hauled some stuff over the weekend and you would have saw it on my instagram. One of my very happy buys is the YSL Rouge Volupte in 15 Extreme Coral. I was swatching at the store, while deciding between their Rouge Volupte line and their Rouge Volupte Shine line. The latter made my dry lips look really sad, so I decided on this. Its a really creamy, pigmented and long-lasting lipstick. Even after half a day, it barely fades and if it does, it leaves a stain (love!). When I got home and happily showed it to my bro, him being the wet blanket as usual, said: I think you have similar colours right? I was like NOOOO but then I did a swatchfest and I found not one but three possible dupes for this. I still reallllyyyy love the lipstick, don't get me wrong! I just thought that wow, I really love this sort of color huh.

The Etude House Color Pop series was my favourite ever collection from them because there are many orange-coral shades! I was sent this lip tint in a pink box last year, and I think this might be a possible dupe for YSL's Glossy Stains. Its very similar to this color but the texture, lasting power and finish is veryyyy similar to the glossy stains.  I don't find that they last very long on my lips. This color is #2.

The second product is probably the closest dupe I have in my stash - its the Holika Holika Heartful Moisture Lipstick in OR210. It has a very similar colour, texture, feeling except the stick is in a heart shape hehe. I would say that YSL's is a tad creamier, but everything else is really similar, but not the same. This product is really cheap, like not exceeding $20SGD I believe.

And the last product was part of my Christmas wishlist - Shu Uemura's 6 Heart Princess lip & cheek fun-tasy in Princess Coral. The color is very alike, but the texture is drier and more matte (it is meant to be like that). It also doesn't outlast YSL's, but it does win the Etude House tint. Pricing wise, this gives you a bang for your buck because the tube is rather big, at 15g for just $33. But its limited edition so I'm not sure if you can still get it now.

The colours are really similar, but definitely not the same. Girls are girls, cosmetics are cosmetics. Still makes me super happy to have bought this YSL baby :P

[SAMPLE REVIEW] Skinfood Salmon Eye Cream

Hi! I got this a sachet of Skinfood's Salmon Eye Cream with some Korean cosmetics, and only recently I felt like trying it :P

I know right! Salmon?! On your skin?! Well, that's Skinfood for you. Salmon is not as bad as.. CREAMY CHEESE MASK! Well, I like cheese in my food but not on my face. *squirms*

It does not smell one bit like salmon. Smells a lot like jasmine flowers, A LOT!!! An overly strong smell of jasmine, which is weird since salmon is used instead. *50 points deducted*

It's a white cream, which I feel is oily and fatty, and only a little is required. This sachet lasted me for 5 times, for both eyes! Not the best texture for an eye brightening cream. I believe this is gonna be bad for people with oily or problematic skin and may not be able to withstand the richness of this eye cream.

Stays really oily for at least 10 minutes, felt like the absorption was reeeaaalllyyy slow. Besides, I've used it for 5 times and there are no significant changes. No brighteni…

Buy & Sell Hello Kitty plushies!!

Hahaha okay so I received over 10 emails on whether I have an extra Macdonald's Hello Kitty to let go or not. Fact is that I didn't buy any >.< So I decided to create a blog post where you Kitty collectors can interact and hopefully get a reply from a potential buyer/seller. Simply comment on this post! :)

Begin your comment with WTB (want to buy) or WTS (want to sell) for easier reference!

[HAUL] Holika Holika!

The first branch of Holika Holika opened its doors in Singapore @ Wisma Atria today! Supposedly at 12, but when I reached there, they were still drilling and hanging stuff, and said to be back in 30 mins.

A huge poster of its ambassador at the side of its shop, CN Blue!!!!!!! Mysterious Magic Cosmetics~ (and endorsed by guys and a cat.. Hmm mysterious enough)

Before it was open! Yet to pull down its blinds~ It's a shop tucked at the corner, beside an escalator. Near Cotton On!
Couldn't get a nice picture of its sign! But you can see a bit of its interior, which is a lavender colour and has nice shelves! It goes with a mystical or magical theme :)

My mini haul from the store! VERY DE EX PLS The highly raved about egg soap @ $20.00 for 2 eggs Make-up Starter primer @ $2.50 per piece Wonder Drawing Eyeliner Auto Stick @ $10.00 Enamel Magicara Long and Curling FREE hehehe

Its a small tube since its free! But its pretty good! There's fibre in it and the brush is kinda special…
