Yves Saint Laurent Manucure Couture Les Fauves

There are 3 or 4 brands that never disappoint me. Every time I get their press releases in my mail box I am sure that it would be something amazing, something that would make me run at the nearest beauty store. One of these brands is Yves Saint Laurent (can you guess the others?) and its beauty collections.
When I heard about Manucure Couture Les Fauves I got excited! YSL dared to play with colors, textures and materials even for nails. Leopard is transformed into limited- edition ”Nail Art” for all those women who dare to try new trends.

Manucure Couture Les Fauves  awakes the creative instinct, the audacity and artistic sense on each nail. Dramatic contrasts of color with gold, silver, sable or jade lacquer with black matter to create fawn design.

It’s simply to use; just apply over a colored base and the black matte topcoat cracks, to reveal a unique, customised, animal print, different every time.

 No1 Griffe Dorée: a baroque evening gold
 No2 Griffe D’ Argent: a rock metallic grey
 No3 Griffe De Sable: a trendy ochre
No4 Griffe De Jade: a casual khaki
Each of the 4 duos is costs 32.35€ and they are already available in stores!

Which one will you choose?

Have a wonderful day!!!

Lipsticks Review: Lancome Golden Hat Foundation and YSL Rouge Pur Couture

Hello girls!

Today I would like to talk you about two lipsticks that I am using lately. Both have intense colors and they are so luxurious… 

First of all, I wanna talk you about the mythical L’Absolu Rouge from the Golden Hat Foundation collection. Lancome has never disappointed me and I was very excited to try this lipstick!

Can you notice my fingertips?hehe

I have the 132 Caprice shade, a true red, intense and sensual. I think it’s the best lipstick for the holidays and for the looks of every femme fatale. That’s the first red lipstick I tried and I absolutely loved it.

The color is very pigmented and the texture is creamy and rich.I didn’t expect it, but this product moisturizes my lips and I feel comfortable wearing it. Girls, this lipstick is so pigmented that when I swatched it on my hand, then I took a hot shower and I still had a faint red mark wher I swatched the lipstick.
The lasting is amazing, especially for a bold hue like this. I also like its satiny finish. The scent isn’t something special. Just the classic lipstick scent.
It has a SPF12 and contains antioxidants and Vitamin E  that protect your delicate lips against UVA and UVB rays and environmental damage. That’s something that I really appreciate from my lipstick products.

So chic packaging, don’t you think?

I really like the packaging. As you can see from the photos, it is a sleek black case with the Golden Hat Foundation logo and Kate Winslet’s signature on it. I love the innovative magnet closure system so it stays on safe! Very practical when you have the lipstick in your purse or beauty case. I hate it when my lipsticks get opened in my bags!!!

The second lipstick I am going to review is the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture, the newest lipstick to the YSL family. The color I got is the 33 Rouge Narcisse, a dark plum/brownish shade.

The pigmentation and the lasting are just amazing. You can control the coverage from medium to high. I tested it for the first time when I went for a coffee with Natalie (oh!and she liked the shade on me!yeaaah!) and after nearly 3 hours of talking it was still there. Of course it faded away a little bit but you could perfectly notice it. Then I had dinner and then I took my make up off and the cotton ball had lip color on it! What I want to say is that this lipstick resisted from eating, drinking and my blah blah blah fot at least 6 hours without retouching it!
The texture is creamy and rich and the finish is radiant and satin. The scent is nice: smells like berry, not heavy at all, it won’t bother the sensitive noses…

 The packaging and… the reflexion! xD

 On my lips. You can modulate the intensity!

Its formula contains natural extracts that provide a comfort moisture on lips. Plus, it comes with an SPF15.
It comes it an elegant and luxurious metal case in a bright polished gold color with the YSL accent at the base. Sometimes when I am out and in a hurry I use the case as a mirror…hehe! That packaging is just gorgeous! You want to show people that you got that baby, you want to hold it and use it all the time! ADORABLE!

I know that both of them are pricey, but I truly believe that worth every cent! Amazing products, great quality!


Have you ever tried these loves? If so, which shades do you have? Did you like them?
Let me know girls!

Have a great Sunday!

P.S:Tomorrow I will update the post with photos of swatches on my lips.

Disclaimer: A huge thank you to L’Oreàl Paris-Greece that sent me these two amazing products! I was sent them for possible review. That hasn’t affect my opinion. I only tell my sincere opinion about the products I use.
