this post, I've been trying to get my act together to draft the promised red lipstick breakdown. Six months(?!) have come and gone since then, which makes me feel a little anxious (red lipstick! it's a serious thing).
Clearly I'm not on the ball, because today, we're going to talk about fuchsia instead. Specifically, the Rouge Pur Couture line by Yves Saint Laurent in #07--"Le Fuchsia," otherwise known as my latest beauty obsession.
I splurged with this one, and bought it on the spot (something I never do; really, you should see my usual indecisive lipstick-buying dance. I'm ridiculous).
I tried the shade on a whim and immediately fell in love: the color is deeply pigmented, vibrant and fresh, and the texture hits exactly how I like it: matte but silky. Moreover, it tastes yummy and comes in a fancy gold tube.
I received two compliments within the first hour of wearing it publicly, one of which came from a eighty-year-old woman who approached me in a pastry shop and exclaimed, "honey! that lip shade is beyond fab." (love her).
If that isn't endorsement enough, then I don't know what is.
P.S. Do you know how to pronounce Yves Saint Laurent?
