SUMMER MELT- PROOF AND LONG LASTING GEMS BY YSL


When I decide to go for high-end makeup, I always make sure I get something I know for a fact I'll always want to use. With summer being FINALLY HERE, I wanted to try some new things but also make sure they fitted the weather whilst also being a little different from the usual products I tend to get (like palettes). My palette draw is literally overflowing and that's how I learnt to avoid getting yet another neutral 12-shades pan. (Obviously I say this today and next week I'll be reviewing a new palette purchase, wanna bet?) 

I have been a fan of YSL for the longest time and I will admit I don't only get their products because of the quality but also because of the amazing packaging. Whenever you look at your beauty counter, if there's some gold in it then you just feel that closer to beauty-heaven. I was kindly offered to review a couple of items that recently came out for the brand's summer collections and I couldn't resist. I have been testing out this makeup for the past few weeks and now I feel confident enough to tell you exactly what I think about it and if you should be investing your money on any of these products any time soon.






The Rouge Pur Couture Venris à Lévres Glossy Stain* (longest name ever) retails for £26 and it's the perfect mix between a gloss and a stain that you could get on the market at the moment. One of the main reasons I don't tend to wear lip glosses much is because they can feel heavy on the lips and extremely sticky, but if you're like me you'd still love this product. It's hands down the lightest thing I have ever put on, it feels like water. The effect is rather wet to being with, as you can see in the photo above, but it dries to look extremely natural and pretty. If you check out my previous post you'll be able to see this little number in action on the beach with natural lighting.  It's worth noting that it dries equally on the whole surface of the lips so you won't find yourself with patches and weird stains, also it's extremely easy to remove with your usual makeup remover since it's more on the hydrating side rather than drying. You can apply this in many ways - from one sheer coat to a more layered vibrant look. It's the perfect product for summer however it is really light so all the gals out there who love extremely vibrant colours with thicker coverage may not be as satisfied since this is not a lipstick. I think it's something different worth trying plus it's perfect for a night out as well since it doesn't need re-applying after drinks or most foods (except if you go for a greasy burrito). Once you try this stain, you won't go back to any other brand for sure. 







The Full Metal Shadows* are basically liquid eyeshadows which remind me a lot of the scandal-eyes shadow paints by Rimmel with the main difference being that these don't crease or disappear on oily eyelids - not even if you test them without primer. I won't even say how many times I came home with my eye makeup looking like trash whenever I forgot to use a base, but for the purposes of the test I decided to go to work rocking only a layer of this product and mascara. Needless to say I kept checking my eyes every 30 minutes to make sure racoon eyes were not happening and after an 8 hour shift I was SHOCKED to see my eye look was as fresh as when I just applied it. The glossy metallic finish was still there and even though it took me 10 seconds to blend it in, it just made me look as if I actually made an effort with my makeup in the morning. They're creamy, the shade range is beautiful and very friendly plus the glitter is nothing too in your face but it definitely gives a young and refreshed look. I own the shades Taupe Drop and Pink Cascade, as shown above. 


Overall I'm highly impressed with these new products and I would definitely recommend you guys to give them a little test if you can, even just swatching them in-store to see the shade range and the way they feel.
