Confession of a Beautiholic

Name: Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick
Shade: 02 Frambourjoise
Price: £8.99
 Where to buy: Boots/Superdrug
I have been a huge lipstick fan! I'm always trying to find long lasting lipstick because I can never be bothered with touching up. My sister got this lipstick for me since it was 3 for 2 in Superdrug (or something like that). She thought it was a proper lipstick first but it turns out to be in a lipgloss package. The whole concept and packaging reminds me of the YSL lipstick. So this is another brand which has tried to copy the latest trend/bestseller of another high store product.
The smell is disgusting. I can't even describe what it is but I really don't like it. This is really easy to apply on unlike normal lipstick and it also gives a matte finish rather than a glossy finish (compare to YSL).


I am surprised to say that I really like this lipstick. This lipstick has a lot of pigment and it is also very long lasting. I put one coat on, let it dry, then I put on a second coat and the colour lasts for about 9-12 hours.

I definitely recommend this product for people who feels YSL Lipstick is a bit too expensive but want to try a similar product to it. This also comes in different shades as well. Sorry about the photos, I don't think it gives a true reflection of this lipstick.

Name: YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain
Shade:  08 Orange de Chine
Price: £25
 Where to buy: Boots/Debenham

Originally, I actually wanted to get the baby doll lipstain as I saw the product from Pony's Beauty Diary. I really liked the orange shade of colour. I went to the YSL counter and they recommended me this Glossy Stain as they said it was their bestseller and it was long lasting as well. I bought two of these and I have got to say that I really like this product. It is very long lasting.

I don't think my photo above does this product justice but as I said it makes my lips really soft and not sticky and the colour is really nice as well. This is really easy to apply on as well in comparison to a lipstick. There is a wide range of shades to choose from.

 

Apply one coat, let it dry and then put a second coat on to make the lip colour last longer. I got this on a discount but this product is really expensive! I think it is the most expensive lipstick I have ever bought so far. I guess you pay for what you get. Apart from the price, I can't really think of a disadvantage in this product. I guess if you use this product often, it runs out pretty quickly.
