OOTD 18032012

Sunny spring day, black and white outfit, red nail polish!

We just went out for a walk and had some business things to arrange.. The top white shirt is kind of sport-elegant top. It's sleeveless and has a hoodie. It is long and open wide in the front. It was my mom's and I don't know where she got it at..
The shirt I'm wearing underneath is a white, thin-fabric top, has buttons on the front and 1/3 sleeves. I got it at a local store called "Fox".
The pants are from D&G, black skinny pants.
Shoes from "Scoop". I actually wanted to buy a pare of black classic All-Star shoes, but they were too expensive at the store I was looking for, so I got these instead, for only 40$. They looked very cute and they're very comfortable! :)

YSL Golden Gloss No 10 Review, Photos, Swatches

I've had this gloss for a while and I can say strait ahead that it is one of my favorite lipglosses ever.

How YSL describe it: All the brilliance and magic of gold on your lips. Give your smile a golden glow with GOLDEN GLOSS, the gloss which gives lips all the sparkle and refinement of a precious jewel. 

How Sephora describes it: Yves Saint Laurent GOLDEN GLOSS shimmering lip gloss is the ultimate in beauty luxury. This gloss forms a mirror-effect on the lips with sparkling gold mother-of-pearl. A complex of nourishing oils (Nigelle and Cameline oils) protects the lips while providing total comfort. It contains 0.2% of 24 carat gold.

What I think about it: It is a little bit pricy for my opinion. It sales at Sephora for 30$ for 0.2 oz, But hey, for 24 carat gold??.. I mean, I'm sure they could create the same sparkling effect without the real gold, but I guess this is the main idea of the golden gloss.
About the formula; it is not that sticky and it lasts for a pretty long time. In my experience, even when the gloss itself comes off (after a good 3-4 hours) the golden sparkles stay on place and last for 3-4 more hours.
The pigmentation of the color itself is not that good, it is a pretty sheer color and almost not noticeable on the lips, but it does gives it a little color. So if you are hesitating between 2 similar colors of the golden gloss, just get one of them, 'cause the difference between the two shades won't be that noticeable. 
Scent: It smells like whatermellon.

Does it worth the money? I would by some more of them unless the price.. But for just one or two, I think it's worth it.. Kind of the fancy lipgloss in your purse..

Rate: ★★★★☆ (4/5)

Mac Shop Mac, Cook Mac Lipstick and Kissable Lipcolour Review, Swatches

No, I didn't get ALL of the items that were featured in this collection, although I would love to! Because I LOVED this collection! All of it! And I rarely love the whole collection from MAC. Usually, there's at least one or two products I don't really like that much, But this collection, in my opinion, is very fun, colorful and "springy". LOVE the Kissable lipcolours!!
Also, I'm a sucker for pakaging, and the pakaging for this collection is SO CUTE!

So I got only one lipstick and one kissable lipcolour. I might get another lipcolour or one of the eyeshadow quads.. If it won't sold out by then.. Which probably will.

The lipstick color I got is Watch Me Simmer, and it's an Amplified finish. I really loved the color of it because it's really bright and fun and it reminds me of Mac's Morange lipstick, only a little bit more pink based. It looks like it's a combination of Morange and Chatter Box lipsticks... and I LOVE IT!
I took a picture for you guys of those three lipsticks, to compare.

*The first picture of the lipstick itself doesn't really looks like the actual color in real life, for some reason. The picture of the swatch and the third picture with the 2 other lipsticks, on the other hand, shows the real color.

                                                           Watch Me Simmer lipstick*

Chatter Box,  Watch Me Simmer,  Morange

The next product I got is the Kissable Lipcolour in Woo Me. The color is kind of a very soft brown with a pink undertone to it. In the tube, it looks like it has a tiny bit of sparkle in it under certain lights, but it's really not noticeable on the lips. I'm absolutely inlove with the formula! It feels very soft on the lips, not sticky like the lipglasses. It doesn't even feels like a lipglass, it's more like a melted lipstick in a tube.... If that makes seance.. I wish those were part of the permanent line..
