YSL Scandal Couture Palette Review Fall 2016 Collection

 

Moving right along with Yves Saint Laurent Beauty releases for Fall/Autumn 2016, we have the Scandal Collection. This collection has much to offer and, of course, I had to partake. There are some full metal eye shadows, more than a few lip products and an eye marker. The obvious choice for me? As a collector, what else but the YSL Scandal Couture Palette…

The New YSL Vinyl Cream Lip Stains Review & Swatches

 

Yves Saint Laurent Beauty has quite a bit in store for us this Fall/Autumn 2016 season with several back to back launches. So much newness! Oh be still, my heart. Of course, you all know I did my share of online ordering and in store purchases. First up? The new YSL Vinyl Cream Lip Stains. Honestly, I hadn’t heard anything about these new lip products and just happened to spot them while browsing the YSL Beauty website a few weeks back. In fact, I think they’d just released that day. The whole Vinyl thing seems to be trending with YSL. And maybe in general as I’ve seen the term pop up in other releases. Remember the YSL Vinyl Mascaras (review) that I talked about last month? Which, BTW, seemed to have been pulled from shelves. I couldn’t find any official information on this so if anyone knows more, please fill us in. Anyway, I wasn’t too happy with my Mascaras…would the lip creams redeem the Vinyl trend for me?

Travel Exclusive: Devoted to YSL Palette Parisienne

 

A multi-functional palette that’s named Devoted to YSL? What could be more perfect for yours truly? Well, Mr. Bear certainly thought so. He gifted me the Devoted to YSL Palette Parisienne back in February for Valentine’s Day. It is one of the Yves Saint Laurent Beauty duty free travel exclusives. And as far as travel palettes go, this one has a little bit of everything.

Belif Skincare Review: The True Cream Aqua Bomb Set

 

Since they were first introduced to Sephora during the height of the Korean beauty craze, I’ve been interested in testing out Belif skincare products. I’ve heard great things about their moisturizers in particular, so I knew I’d be starting there. While browsing the brands’ product lineup on Sephora’s website, however, I came across a fantastic kit which allowed to test out two additional products for the same price. What better way to do it…

Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo & Spanish Pink Lipstick Review

 

Tom Ford color cosmetics are not sold in The Bahamas and whenever I’m state-side I never manage to visit a counter. As much as I lamented not being to see, touch and feel before purchase, I decided to ask my mother to pick me up Tom Fords’ lipstick in Spanish Pink while she was in Vegas. I’d been putting off trying one of his original lipsticks for the longest because of the high cost but, as a makeup junkie, my curiosity finally got the best of me. Spanish Pink is one of his more popular shades and as I’ve never tried a lipstick from the regular line, I thought I’d start with one that is well liked. While she was at it, my Dear Mama, also picked me up something from the Tom Ford Soleil Collection for Summer 2016 as a surprise – the Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo. A very wonderful surprise indeed.

YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture Review & Demo

 

Couldn’t help myself – I purchased not one, not two but four of the new YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture. You guys know that I’m an avid YSL Beauty fan. I follow their Twitter and Instagram and let me tell you, they were not shy with the press and hype leading up to the launch of the Vinyl Mascaras. Those photos and videos had me drooling in anticipation. In fact, I was so excited I actually pre-ordered. But silly me sent the package to my friends address (thinking I’d be visiting soon). Long story short, I didn’t end up making the visit so she had to re-send the mascaras to me. The whole process took much longer than I’d hoped. Anyway, I did get them eventually. So were the YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture everything that I wanted them to be?
