Battle of the Nudes

Hi there beauties! Sorry for being MIA yet again. I've been super busy with my last semester of school. As it is currently spring break (or "Reading Week", as my school calls it ... you're actually supposed to be studying and catching up with your school work but all I'm really doing is absolutely nothing and I'm loving it!), I figure I might as well catch up with my blog :) It's been a while and today I have something very exciting to share with you!

Out of all makeup products, lipsticks are my absolute fave. I have more than I will ever need and I know I don't need anymore but I can't help myself if MAC comes out with a new collection or Chanel or in this case, Yves Saint Laurent and Napoleon Perdis.

I have 2 very, very beautiful lipsticks to show you today. One of them, after searching absolutely absolutely everywhere (in my local Sephora store, on Sephora online, and my friend even went to another province and looked for me), it is always sold out (and they never seem to restock it, ever). Panicked, I thought it was discontinued, as I have heard so many good things about this particular shade, ... but behold. I finally found it. Meet my brand new love: YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick in #2 Sensual Silk. 

I've owned several other YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick shades. But I've never owned #2. If you've never tried the YSL Rouge Volupté Lipsticks before, you are seriously missing out on one of the creamiest lipsticks out there. #2 Sensual Silk is THE perfect nude pink for everyday. This lipstick have had its permanent place in my purse. I bring it with me everywhere I go - I love it so much, from the smell, to the texture, to the colour. It is my new obsession and I want to buy 3 more to restock on it as it was extremely difficult for me to get my hands on. Despite its big price tag (eek!) it is absolutely worth every penny and I have zero regrets. YSL lipsticks are a must-have (think investment! lol) and I highly, highly suggest everyone splurge on them because they are, not to sound a bit too intense as they're just lipsticks after all, but indeed life-changing.

My next lipstick to show you today is the Napoleon Perdis Dévine Goddess Lipstick in Demeter. Napoleon Perdis is an Australian cosmetics brand and I've actually heard about this brand through an Australian YouTuber, Chloe Morello. She said that one of her most favourite nude lipstick ever in 'Demeter' (she did a whole video - with swatches - on the Dévine Goddess Lipsticks, which you can watch here. Her video pretty much sold me on this lipstick because it is absolutely gorgeous). I'll say 'Demeter' is very similar to MAC's Creme d'Nude Lipstick (pinkish nude) which is my go-to nude and one of my favourite MAC lipsticks. To no surprise, I am head-over-heels in love with this lipstick. This is my first Napoleon Perdis product and I am very satisfied. I purchased both lipsticks through Nordstrom online and I will definitely be visiting the site again very soon!

PS. If you want to see swatches let me know, I can do a separate post showing you the colours :)

I hope you enjoy today's post. If you have any questions or comments feel free to leave your thoughts below!

Until next time,
from Film with love.. xx
