I met Kas today, because I needed to pass her my birthday present to her (which she might tell you about in due time) and we had our pedicures done (I brought along my CG XVIII that purple color) -- maybe I will take pictures later on and update -- anyway, it was awfully nice of her to sign for my pedicure off her package. :)
So we hanged around town a bit, checked out Too Fabulous again, swatched lots of stuff, talked to Linn at the Benefit counter, and I ended up getting one more lip pencil In Sync, because I had thought of getting it the the day before, but somehow I did... and then lissasioux left a comment saying how In Sync would be great with our YSL RV 19, or 1, and all that... and well, yup... I got it. She is my YSL enabler, and I guess vice versa.
Anyway... we ended up at DFS galleria, and went on a swatching spree.. and I got this idea to write the numbers of the lipsticks on my hand, then we went to the toilet to take pictures and all, so you can imagine what an operation all that was. Thankfully nobody bothered us at DFS at all, and I was able to take these pictures. Their testers are also super brand new, like newly sanitised, the top of almost every lipstick I swatched were very nicely sliced off.... and I even did a lipswatch of one of the lipsticks (in a pale nude coral shade).
I really like this color combi! I think I can prolly dupe this combination with MAC's Ravishing and Underaged lipglass over.
Edited: It's not RP#144 Silky Apricot, but RV#30 Faubourg Peach--I think I want to buy this color shown below.
Then came the swatching!!
All the RV are the Rouge Volupte, and the RP are Rouge Pur. I didn't swatch the Rouge Shine since they were kind of sheer, you won't be able to see them clearly anyway. I love love every single shade ending with "PINK".
RV#11 (Rose Culte)
RV#9 (Caress Pink)
RV#30 (Faubourg Peach)-- new Spring shade
RV#29 (Opera Rose) -- new Spring shade
RV#150 (Sublime Red)
RP#144 (Silky Apricot)
RP#19 (Fuchsia Pink)
RP#135 (Candy Pink)
RP#146 (Romantic Pink)
RP#141 (Pink Satin)
And this is my own pink lip combination:
And some MAC pinky colors which stood out to me at the DFS counter.
I think the next time we all need makeup remover wipes whenever we hit the MU counters. And hand creams too. After a few swatches, I always just wipe (quite roughly with tissue) and I think wet wipes are the way to go. :)
Kas and I in the toilet while she was washing her hands.... some artistic and creative shots are in her camera, which I am sure she will blog about soon. Seriously, I don't know why I looked soooo washed out in the pictures which I took today. I had no time to do my makeup today, and all I had was foundation, brows, false lashes (no liner, no eyeshadow), NARS Mounia, and the pink lipppy. But it is not as thought you can see any hint of blush going on at all.
And I like Kas' eyeshadow combination (Emerald Green, and a pinkish color on the inner corner) today, and the slightly pinky nude lipstick she had going on, even though it isn't technically a nude, but it is lighter than her usual Up the Amp color. I think it was a combination of 2 lipsticks..the names of which totally slip my mind now.
How's your weekend been? I am going to watch Alice (...) 3D later today, and then clear some work before the start of another work week.
Thanks for reading!!
