The Beautiful And Enchanting Les Merveilleuses Ladurée Cream Cheek Base 05

Meet this unbelievably beautiful cream blush from Les Merveilleuses Ladurée!
I'm a huge fan of bold color. Therefore i usually pick out the bright and fun shades of blush on and lipstick. That is why when i decided to buy Ladurée Cream Cheek Base, i picked out the boldest of the options. And that was the shade #05. 

The Cream Cheek Base, just like the rest of Ladurée make up, also has dreamy packaging. Although the thin plastic material was slightly disappointing, but i love the unique egg shape also the baroque details on it. This blush came in 5 different shades and mine is #05. 05 is a fuchsia pink blush with a matte finish. This blush has a dry, thick texture that glob a bit when applied on skin but easy to blend.
The pigmentation is ok, sheer but buildable, as expected from Japanese brand. It stays about 7-8 hours on me without touch up and has an elegant rosy scent.

Although this may not the best cream blush i've ever tried, but i still love it nonetheless. I mean, this probably the prettiest piece of make up that i own. The only down side is the price. This little blush costs about IDR 600 or so. Pretty hefty, but it's Ladurée after all.

here's how it looks on me. Pardon my skin, i have some break outs due to my period *le sigh*

That's it for now. Hope you find this review helpful.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture 52 Rosy Coral Review

Hello! Today i'm going to review one of my current favorit lipsticks at the moment, YSL Rouge Pur Couture 52 Rosy Coral. I was super excited when i got this baby about 2 months ago, because it wasn't easy to get this lipstick as it was sold out everywhere after a rumor spread that Gianna Jun aka Cheon song Yi worn this on the oh-so-famous KDrama My Love From The Star, which also the reason i was hunting this lipstick on the first place lolol.
I wasn't expecting much on getting this anytime soon, but then some friends said that this lipstick had been restocked on some YSL counters at Jakarta. Curious, i texted my YSL's Beauty Assistant friend at Surabaya, asking about Rosy Coral again. And i was very lucky, she got 2 in stock. Without second thought i bought it. Yay.

Gianna Jun is seen wearing various lipsticks during the drama. Red, fuchsia, orange, coral, pink, hot pink, you name it. There is no official statement or actual evidence that Gianna wore this lipstick on the drama. The rumor was started by a Korean Netizen who claimed saw the make up artist applying this lipstick to Jun. However, on these scenes the lipstick she's wearing looks similar to Rosy Coral.

Oh my... this lady is very gorgeous i can't even!!!
Okay back to topic, let's start the review :)

Rosy Coral is a bright pinky coral with hint of neon. The color is very lovely and instantly brighten up my skin tone. It's creamy, smooth and pigmented. It feels slightly drying on my lips, so i need a lip balm before applying this lipstick. Also i need to exfoliate my lips because this lipstick calls attention to the flakes, especially if you have dry lips. It lasts about 6 hours on me. Fading evenly, doesn't leave nasty mark around my lips.

Overall, i really like this lipstick. Not only because of the struggle to get it but because it's a very beautiful lipstick. These photo don't justify the beauty of it. It looks brighter and more neon in real life, totally gorgeous. Not to mention that the packaging is also very luxurious. YSL really makes the best lipsticks!
So, last but not least, this is me wearing this famous lipstick.

See you on the next post!
