YSL Blood Orange (94) Rouge Pur Shine Lipstick (Summer 2010) Review, Photos Swatches

YSL #94 Rouge Pur Shine

YSL Blood Orange (94) Rouge Pur Shine Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant shade of coral-orange with an ultra glossy sheen. It has just a smidgen of iridescent shimmer woven through it, but it’s nearly indetectable once on the lips. It’s really the glossy finish that stands out in comparison. The semi-opaque color itself is rich, lush, and perfect for summer. I love the lightweight feel of this creamy, moisturizing lipstick, and I like that I get three to four hours of wear with it to boot!

This is a new and limited edition shade from the upcoming YSL’s Solaris Collection, which will debut in June at YSL counters and the usual retailers.

Urban Decay Graffiti Eyeshadow

Deluxe Eyeshadows are also available in these shades: Fishnet (iridescent purple), Freakshow (deep purple with red sheen), Frigid (deep purple with blue sheen), Honey (glistening gold), Peace (shimmering turquoise), Ransom (vibrant iridescent purple), Ruthless (pale sandy taupe shimmer), Scratch (shimmering silver pink), Shag (tan shimmer), Zero (smoking black), and Underground (taupe brown shimmer).

The packaging is cute and funky, though not the most functional. The price, however, is worth noting, because you get 0.09 oz. of product, which makes this one of the most affordable high-end eyeshadows to purchase!

The Summer Season: Korres #52 Orange Red Lipstick

Korres #52 Orange Red Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a semi-sheer, lightened orange with just a hint of red to it. I’m not sure why it’s named “Orange Red,” because it feels almost like an orange-coral. In case you were curious, it is pretty different from #45 Coral#52 Orange Red is like it’s bolder, brighter naughty older sister. It’s more pigmented, definitely more on the orange side. It has the same glossiness of all Mango Butter Lipsticks, though, and it’s just as moisturizing.

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.
