Barneys New York is having free international shipping until 23 June 2012 and I used this chance to grab my first YSL Glossy Stain that is highly raved on the beauty blogsphere. Given the huge stash of lip stuffs I still have at home, I have to restrain myself and just get 1. Man, choosing the shade I want is truly not easy and I spent quite some time going back and forth my favourite beauty blogs to decide. Eventually, Jacqueline's look here told me that shade 7 Corail Aquatique is it!
I love the see through 'window' of the tube that shows how much gloss is left, but honestly who am I kidding, I have not finished any lip product in my entire life! In any case, this is a useful feature :). In comparison to Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick, it is slight taller and bigger in size. Love this size as it feels more compact.
When choosing the shade, I had in my mind something different from my current stash of lip products. my preference has always been towards dusty rose shade which is extremely extremely safe because it always blend in very well with my natural lip colour. I have to admit that I was first drawn to 15 Rose Vinyl because it looks like a dusty rose shade but I stopped myself, haha. So I went for a coral shade which is brighter but at the same time not too bright, 7 Corail Aquatique is it.
Here is how it looks on my lips. My natural lip colour is on the darker side so most light nude shades look just horrible on me.
Finally, here is me at the end of the day with just minimal makeup left and Corail Aquatique on my lips.
I hope I have not scared you with this lousy pic here and hope you guys have a wonderful week ahead!
