Haul March 29th : In Love With Yves Saint Laurent... + F O T D : Fresh Peachy Spring Look

Hi everyone! How is your week so far? I'm pretty busy lately, since I'm working full time again due to easter break. Hence, the late post this week!

First of all, I want to let you know, how much I appreciate your comments! Sharing my thoughts on cosmetics has become even more joyful with your support, and I really really enjoy every single note that I receive! Thank you so much! ♥

Now, presenting the Yves Saint Laurent goodies I got this week!

YVES SAINT LAURENT Eye Shadow Duo ~ 19 Oatmeal / Petroleum Blue

This is my second YSL Eye Shadow Duo to my collection. I think #19 Oatmeal / Petroleum Blue is quite a unique palette.

I'm loving the super fine and silky texture, as well as the great color payoff.

As you can see from the swatch, the shadows have no shimmer, yet are not completely matte. I would describe the finish as soft matte. The look created with this palette must be very sophisticated!

YVES SAINT LAURENT Rouge Volupté ~ 30 Faubourg Peach

You all know how much I love YSL's Rouge Voluptés, don't you? Faubourg Peach is a new color that has been released with the Summer 2010 Collection.

It looks more red in the swatch than it does on my lips, which is more of a pastel peach color, although I have pretty pigmented lips. Like I said before, I used to be greatly devoted to pinks, but somehow I'm totally hooked on peachy shades lately.

Now, doesn't Faubourg Peach look stunning? It is similar to 26 Tender Peach (see the swatch in this post, see it on my lips in this post) I would say that 26 Tender Peach has a bit more orange hues to it compared to 30 Faubourg Peach, which is a bit softer.

YVES SAINT LAURENT Nail Lacquer ~ 35 Tuxedo Grey

I know, this is not a very spring-ish color at all, but I felt the need to add this particular shade to my nail polish collection, haha... Tuxedo Grey is a dark grey with a hint of blue to it.


You wanted to see me wearing the Yves Saint Laurent Blush Variation ~ 18 Coral Sand, didn't you? Here is my FOTD with the blush! You guessed it - just another simple and natural everyday look, haha...

I tried to do a very fresh peachy spring look! Sorry for my puffy eyes (I'm having a cold)!

I'm wearing a messy up-do most of the time lately, since the length of my hair is so annoying. I must yet figure out how to get rid of my side part for this hair style!

The soooftest peach blush I ever had on my cheeks! Can you tell, I'm in love?! Blair (she said, she prefers pinks over peaches), could I convince you to try out some peaches now? ;)

For the eyes I used my Coffret D'Or Jewelcious Eyes palette in 04. The lovely Lulu from Luluchinadoll asked me about how I do my eyebrows.

Well, basically I just draw in with the Shiseidow Natural Eyebrow Pencil ~ GY 901 Natural Black (which is my hg eyebrow pencil!). I fill in the gaps with light and short strokes following the natural shape of my brows, and extend the end a bit (not too much, since I think long eyebrows don't flatter my round face), since they got very sparse there due to over plucking in my teenage years. :/

As a last step, I'll always use a Q-tip to slightly sweep over my eyebrows. This is my trick to get it soft and natural looking, and not obviously drawn. I'll try to do a 'eyebrow tutorial' with photos!

Oh my gosh... Rouge Volupté ~ 30 Faubourg Peach and Blush Variation ~ 19 Coral Sand is a match in heaven! Don't you think so?


- MAC Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation ~ NC 15
- Dior Capture Totale Loose Powder ~ 001

- Yves Saint Laurent Blush Variation ~ 18 Coral Sand

- Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté ~ 30 Faubourg Peach

- Coffret D'Or Jewelcious Eyes ~ 04
- Maquillage Dramatical GEl Liner ~ BR 652
- Shiseido Lasting Lift Mascara ~ black
- Shiseido Natural Eyebrow Pencil ~ GY 901 Natural Black

I hope you liked my haul and FOTD!

Oh, and you know what? I'm going to meet the lovely Sheila from Mademoiselle Loves Beauty tomorrow! The first blogger buddy to visit Vienna, and my first blogger meet up ever! Wohoo... I'm so excited...!

Stay pretty!
Stay Ohh... pretty!

Edna said...

#30 looks so pretty. I have been neglecting my #26 :(

Oshiya said...

I love a natural look. :D and the packaging is very tempting.

You know what's funny about Yves Saint Laurent? He said, "The most beautiful make-up of a woman is passion, But cosmetics are easier to buy." That's one of the most anti-make-up quotes I have ever heard... But then the man himself sells make-up.

Working full time? Gosh, what do you do?? You put me to shame. I've never had a job in my life.. ¬¬;;;;

And I LOVE the nail polish colour. I'm always drawn to those kind of shades but in reality I rarely wear them because it's more obvious when you mess up D=
