My First Make-up Post!


Usually I wear only very natural-looking colours on my lips, they were getting a lil boring so I decided to venture out of my lil box and try more interesting shades. I remember reading about some amazing reviews on the YSL Rouge Volupté line so I decided to give it a try. I picked up #19 Frivolous Pink from the collection and also ended up getting a lip gloss at the counter as well cause the baby pink was too pretty to pass haha.


Here's a picture of just the lipstick...

The lipstick is very pigmented and it glides on like a dream. The formula is very rich and creamy, and a little goes a long way. Oh, and I loveeeee the packaging! It's super classy and it even has a lil mirror on the top of the cap for touch ups! =)

And here's a picture with the lip gloss too...

Pure Sorbet is a baby pink lip gloss with no shimmer. I love how it's really creamy and has an incredibly glossy shine to it. Both the lipstick and the gloss is scented with a sweet mango fragrance.

P. S. I've recently discovered the wonders of make-up and I've been buying a lot of eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, lip glosses, blushes, and the list just goes on forever! I'm hoping to do occasional make-up related posts to share my new passion with you guys. My blog will remain focussed on nails so no worries to those of you who voted "no" to make-up posts on the poll that I did a while back.

Love you all and thank you so much for stopping by! :D


  1. Cute! I could never pull that color off~ looks great on you ^.^

  2. LOL! I have both! except the golden floss I own is #11. Although... I like yours a lot too!

    *proceeds to put this on to buy list*

    As for rouge volupte you may like #1, and #30. I also own #7 but it's a very pale pink so I'm not sure if you will like it LOL

  3. I absolutely adore this colour. I need to start making a lipstick collection. I really fancy getting a coral too.

  4. So cute! <3
    You have very nice nails, and now lips too ahahaha

  5. That is an amazing lipstick! So pigmented...I may have to splurge and get some YSL of my own.

  6. Cute!! Looks great on you, and it's such a fun, pretty color. I'm definitely looking forward to some more makeup reviews from you. ^_^

  12. Asami- Thank you so much sweetie!<3<3<3

    Jen- I actually still have not worn it out yet! Haha, I'm too scared it'll look weird and won't match with the rest of my make-up.

    milan and vanaily- golden floss the one with shimmer? I wanna try them out too! They look sooo pretty!

    And I think I just might pick up #1 as well! It's more of a nude pink shade which I think I'll be able to wear more often compared to this. Lol!

    Tilly- Coral sounds like a lovely idea! I own nothing like it! Time to go lipstick shopping again! :D

    shirley-'re so sweet! I wish my sisters were more like you! They all think my lips are gross. ='(

    Zara- Yeah, I'm really surprised it's so pigmented too! It's a lil on the pricey side but I think it's totally worth it cuz the quality's amazing! =)

    Pam- Thank you! I have lots of new makeup to share, but I'm still such a noob at it. Must master the techniques! Teeheehee!

    Susie- Thank you! I just love how they're so different from what I usually wear, but I have no clue on how to coordinate it with the rest of my makeup. What does pink lipstick go with anyways?

    theartofnails- Lol! I never knew you were into lippies too carmen! I actually don't own anything by elizabeth arden, gotta check it out soon!

    Serene- Aww..thank you so much! I'm still trying to master the techniques to eyeshadow application. I'll post pictures as soon as I figure it out! Hehe..:D


Thank you for leaving a comment! :)
