I brought my first YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick today and LOVE it already! #1 Nude Beige is the perfect nude with a pink undertone. It's a very flattering colour. The formula is very creamy and opaque, not drying what so ever! The lasting power is reasonable and similar to any other balm x lipstick product on the market. The packaging is stunning and the scent isn't offensive. I'd recommend this product to anyone who wants an easy to wear everyday nude colour.
Moisturizers -Caudalie - Vinosource Quenching Sorbet Creme

this review is actually for the caudalie vinosource moisturising sorbet but i can't seem to find this anywhere on makeupalley, so i'm presuming it's named other things in different countries. this is a moisturiser aimed at dry sensitive skin. it's very lightweight and almost 'airy' or 'mousy'. i find it sinks in better or some days than others which is a bit confusing, however i am currently taking roaccutane (harsh acne medication that drys the skin out badly) and it keeps my skin supple and quenched all day long. i use it mainly in the mornings however it can be used in the evenings also. overall, this is a nice moisturiser suitable for normal, dry and very dry skin types. make up sits well on top of it and and doesn't leave a greasy feel. the packaging is hygenic and simple, and good for travelling. it retails for about £22 in the UK so it's very reasonable for the amount you need. (i've had mine for about 5 mounths now. the only downside to this product is that it contains fragrance, something useless and possible irritating to some skins.
