YSL, MUA and Jubilee Spirit.

The Jubilee may be over, but there's no need for you ditch the red, white and blue colour scheme. There's lots of amazing Jubilee style colours still on the high street and with block colours being a summer essential, there's no reason why you can't carry on the blue, red and white trend. During the weekend, I managed to do a little shopping and couldn't resist buying these two beauties.

This is the YSL Rouge Pur Couture in shade 1. On Saturday, me and my fiance will be hosting our vintage inspired engagement party and the saleswoman at House of Fraser managed to convince me that this lipstick is a timeless classic, adding a vintage scarlet appeal to any outfit. At £23, YSL is a premium brand lipstick, but does it live up to expectations?

Firstly I love the detailing on the shiny gold packaging. Shiny gold evokes a sense of luxury and with the embedded YSL logo, the packaging looks classy and timeless. The lipstick itself also has the logo engraved. You can really admire craftsmanship gone into the detailing of the lipstick.

The YSL lipstick glides on like a dream. Coupled with the YSL Touche Eclat, this lipstick is an essential for the perfect pout. Simply highlight around your lips and then cover with this beautiful siren red. The product has SPF 15 and really helps moisturise my lips. As for the colour, it managed to last almost 24 hours without re-application, making this perfect for those summer celebrations and BBQ's. 

Sticking to the Red, White and Blue colour scheme, I managed to pick up this new MUA eyeshadow for £1 at Superdrug. Many bloggers have raved about MUA products and I'm definitely joining the cult. MUA offers such fantastic cosmetics at a bargain price, making them affordable to everyone. This baby blue colour known as 'PEARL' is a perfect shade for summer beach frolicking. The powder applies incredibly easy, but as with most eyeshadows, it is always best to use a primer if you want the colour to show its true potential. 

So here is my Jubilee inspired makeup, ready to hit the town and celebrate all things British.

How did you celebrate the Jubilee?

  2. Thanks for the comment on my nail post :) I've been so eager to buy a YSL lipstick purely for the packaging! I was torn between YSL and Chanel, but then I got Chanel as a birthday gift so I might buy myself a YSL as a post exam present to myself :) Looks amazing on, does it transfer much?
