YSL Haul and FoTD

Ok, I had a makeup splurge! I had never tried YSL makeup before but had heard so many good things about the brand in general and I had been wanting the Touché Éclat for the longest time so I thought, “Eh! What the hell! Go for it!” So I took the plunge! I was initially going to buy the touché éclat from Boots’ online site but then thought I’d just go direct and I’m so glad I did! Why? Well I got freebies! And who doesn’t like freebies! I bought the Touché Éclat (in the shade 1.5 as I’m pale but not ghost-like plus I have yellow undertones) and the Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in shade 35. When I got to the check-out I realised I’d qualified for some freebies! Woohoo! This consisted of:

2 x Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils samples

2 x Black Opium samples

1 x Forever Youth Liberator sample

1 x Dessin De Lèvres – lip liner in shade 6

1 x Top Secrets Eye Makeup Remover

I was so excited to see the YSL parcel waiting for me when I got back from my trip to London (more about my trip in a later post). It was like Christmas Day all over again with the freebies and all! Here are the goodies:

  

  

The first thing I thought when I saw the shade in person was, “Eek! It’s bright pink!” as I was expecting a more softer, natural pink.

  

  

Ok, so the inner of my arm is more pale than the actual shade but it worked quite well with my face’s skin tone. I think if I’d got the lighter shade, it would have washed me out.

And here are the freebies:

  

I gave one of the perfume samples to my mum as I knew she’d love it! Dad bought her a bottle of the original Opium around 30 years ago and she still has the bottle sat on her dresser to this day! The lip liner is more plum-y than bright pink like the lip stain but that’s ok with me, it tones down the colour a little.

Here’s me wearing the wearing my YSL gloss stain and touché éclat:

  

So what do you think? Have any of you guys tried YSL? Do you love it? Hate it? Comment below! I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend! I’m home for the next few weekends which sadly means I won’t be seeing my boyfriend but it does mean I can concentrate on my proofreading so yay!

Yesterday’s #FOTD

Going shopping and to the cinema yesterday gave me the perfect opportunity to try out my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette:

  

 

I wanted to keep things quite natural so the eyeshadow colours I used were:

White chocolate

Milk chocolate

Marzipan

Hazelnut

Creme brûlée 
I used the last two along my lash line, too.  I also wore Wildly Natural’s powder foundation in Fair and Benefit’s Roller Lash on my lashes. My lips are nude with just a little of Sweet Cecily’s lip balm in Banoffee Pie.

Feeling a little off colour today.



I have caught a horrible cough and cold and I feel awful. 😦 So felt like a dressinggown day and decided to make myself look a little better by putting on some makeup. No foundation though as I seem to have had an allergic reaction to something I’ve been putting on my face which has made me come out in these weird dry patches along my jawline. :-/ So all I could put on was some MAC orange correcter from their Pro Conceal And Correct Pallette, a moss green eyeshadow from ELF and Roller Lash from Benefit. Oh and my peachy coloured lip and cheeks pencil from My Little Beauty.



Ok so the eyeshadow looks a little lighter than in the palette lol but tbh I didn’t really feel like layering it to get a stronger colour, I kinda liked the way it looked. 🙂 Oh and sorry about the shaky pic.

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend. I’m currently catching up on the week’s The Flash. 🙂
