Five Great Lipsticks for Hollywood Glamour!

 Getting all arty with my montage there…

Five glamorous lipsticks, two pairs of very cool sunglasses. You’ve had a sneaky preview of this video already (recent posts on Hollywood Glamour) but this is the Real McCoy, so to speak. It’s quite self-explanatory, really – there are two very bright lipsticks (the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain and the Lancome Miss Coquelicot) and then there’s a nude (the Chanel), a peach (the Sisley) and a barely-there stain (the YSL Volupte Candy). I love them all, but I have probably worn the more natural colours and textures the most often. I carry the Volupte Candy tinted balm with me everywhere! It deserves its own post, so I shall try to get around to doing that…

All of the information that you could possibly require is below the video pane, but do feel free to ask questions!

Sunglasses are by:
Jimmy Choo:

Sisley Lip Balm:
YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Shade 10:

    Ruth, Ruth, Ruth…how can you keep sending us so many lovely products to drool over, and then add the kicker of a discount at Cult Beauty? If we didn’t love you so much, we’d have to do away with you! Now please excuse me as I consider how much damage to do to my credit card. xx

    I have Superstition! It’s such a more classy nude compared to other nude lipsticks! The Sisley sheer peach looks so summery and fresh on you as well, might have to snap that on up (:
    give me a look? just started out today!

    I’ve already got a few lipsticks from the YSL Volupté collection, but wow, the Pur Couture line looks even more amazing – I’ve been looking for a truly longlasting lipstick for some time now. But what do you use to remove it? Your remark about the stain on your hand has got me worried ;)

    haha I just realised that the word “coquelicot” is weird in english (“cock-lick-o”)
    But it just means “poppy” :)
