Recently, I was super delighted to pick up a couple of Yves Saint Laurent products when I visited the new boutique store at ION Orchard #B2-34 for the second time.
This round, I’ve received a Poudre Sur Mesure Semi-Loose Powder Natural Radiance, 5 pieces of Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks, a Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof (electric blue) and a Parisienne Eau De Parfum (refill).
I’ve actually reviewed the Poudre Sur Mesure Semi-Loose Powder Natural Radiance recently and click here if you’re keen to read the review.
Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof – S$52
This is my second mascara from Yves Saint Laurent. The first Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof is in Charcoal Black No.1.
I was browsing around the boutique and spotted this Majorelle Blue No.4 mascara. I was so excited upon catching sight of this electric blue mascara! It was love at first sight!
With just 1 stroke, Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof effectively lengthens and thickens my lashes beautifully.
The electric blue color looks great on my Asian eyes. It has this 80′s retro look! Love it!
I realize the blue color doesn’t look obvious in certain angles, probably I only coated my lashes with just one stroke. I reckon 2-3 coats will be ideal. The formulation is lightweight and it doesn’t weigh the lashes down hence my lashes appear lifted up. This waterproof mascara is pretty long-lasting and it doesn’t smudge after many hours later.
Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick – S$45
The 5 Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks I’ve received are : No.17 (2 pieces), No.42, No.110 and No.13. I mistakenly took 2 similar colors.
A signature YSL logo is debossed on each lipstick.
(Above image) Lipstick color : Rouge Pur Couture No.17. This natural shade is suitable for all day, all occasions.
(Above image) Lipstick color : Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre No.110. It has a slightly glossy and sheer finish unlike the other three which have more intense color.
(Above image) Lipstick color : Rouge Pur Couture No.13. It is one of the signature red YSL lipstick colors.
(Above image) Lipstick color : Rouge Pur Couture No.42. My most favorite color of all! It makes my lip looking sexy and appealing.
So here are the 3 signature YSL lipstick colors.
These 2 bright pink fuchsia shades are pretty similar. I’m having the No.110 which has a glossy sheer finish whilst the No.7 has a more intense color.
Ecran UV Haute Protection High Protection UV Shield SPF 50 PA+++, priced at S$69, has a natural shade (right) and a BB shade (left). Spotted this sunscreen during the launch event. What first caught my attention is the unique BB shade formulation. A sunscreen with a BB cream formulation, nice!
Yves Saint Laurent boutique store is now located at ION Orchard #B2-34, Tel : 6509 7423. You can also visit their latest outlet at the new revamped Tangs Beauty Hall @ Tangs Orchard.
That’s all for today and thanks for reading!
As expected, I was so engrossed with the makeup products, I didn’t get to check out the range of skincare products while I was there twice, I guess I will drop by one day again to find out more about their skincare line. See ya!
