As you know, beige, golden tones, and vampy colors are all the rage in lipstick for the spring 2017 season. While I enjoy wearing these colors, sometimes I want the purple look from the vampy trend, in a not-so-vampy- hue.

When I spotted YSL’s Volupte Sheer Candy lipstick in Prune Frappee, I knew it was the perfect color for days when I want to wear purple lipstick without being vampy.

This is the first time I have purchased YSL’s sheer lipstick. Several of my friends love it, so I thought I would give it a try. I am really happy with my purchase. YSL’s Volupte Sheer Candy lipstick glides on smoothly leaving even, sheer color on my lips. The formula is moisturizing, which is key for lipstick. Nothing is more annoying than lipstick which dries out my lips!

While I tend to shop Chanel’s sheer listick colors first, since they are always on trend, I have fallen in love with YSL’s sheer lipstick. I am looking forward to seeing the new colors they come out with each season. In addition, I feel like YSL has a nice collection of colors which are classic and ideal for supplementing my seasonal collection.

Kendra Scott Slate Grey nail polish review

Kendra Scott nail polishes are some of my favorite polishes! This beautiful grey hue named “Slate Grey,” is a fabulous neutral hue which is perfect during any season of the year. My friend Dawn of gave me this bottle for Christmas; she definitely knows what’s hot, and what I like!

Slate Grey by Kendra Scott is extremely easy to wear on a daily basis. This color plays well with the current winter color palette, as well as spring’s incoming hues. It is a nice, medium grey shade which works as the perfect neutral. Love that!

I tested out Kendra Scott Slate Grey nail polish with one base coat, two coats of color, and no top coat. Like other Kendra Scott polishes, Slate Grey lasted a full week without chipping! It is always a good thing when a five free polish does not chip. So many of them do, but not Kendra Scott! Her five free nail polish collection is as chip resistant as a nail polish could be. Love that!

Kendra Scott Slate Grey nail polish is a great staple for one’s polish collection. You can find Slate Grey by Kendra Scott online here.

Guerlain rouge lipstick in 62 Georgia review

Guerlain Rouge lipstick is a lightweight, cream lipstick which includes it’s own compact mirror. I love how this lipstick comes with it’s own mirror. It is quite handy when you have a small handbag or clutch, and need to save space. Love it!

Normally I shy away from cream lipsticks, but sometimes an occasion, or an outfit, calls for more lip color then a sheer lipstick can provide. When looking for cream lipsticks, I always look for ones which do not run, smudge, cake, or add weight. My lips do not need to weight-lift during the day thank you very much.

This cream lipstick by Guerlain is just perfect. It does not add weight, never smudges, doesn’t run, and stays put on my lips. Love! Plus, did I mention the cute little compact mirror? 😉

I chose Georgia 62 as a nice contrast for spring in my lipstick collection. Most of my lipsticks are either beige, golden, or vampy; which is in line with spring 2017’s lipstick trend. Sometimes I just want a classic color, and to eschew trends for certain moods or activities. This classic, pinkish coral hue is perfect for just that.

The Guerlain Rouge collection of lipsticks is fabulous when I need a cream lipstick. This is my first Guerlain lipstick and I love it. I am looking forward to adding more to my collection in the future.

You can find Guerlain Rouge Georgia 62 lipstick online here, and the entire Guerlain Rouge lipstick collection online here.
