First of all I have to say sorry for late post in my lipstick collection series. Last week was a busy week for me I only have little time to write my blog. Anyway here we go another My lipstick collection post. Can't believe I have been doing this series for more than a month. The feedback is good so far I'm really thank you for all your support. Today, will be time for luxury lipstick brand.
Chanel I own 2 lipsticks from this brand. The first one is Rouge Allure luminous intense in 05 Desirable a shimmery mauve pink. Even though it has shimmer but it's very subtle on the lips. The best thing I love about luxury brand is the packaging innovation. I can see that they put a lot of time to create each make up packaging. Like this Rouge Allure, to avoid a lid comes off the bullet when you put lipstick in a bag you have to press the bottom of the tube in order to remove a lid. The second one is Rough Coco in 56 Teheran a frost corally orange colour. Although it's pretty colour and it's much subtler than Mac Frost but I'm quite disappointed as it's tend to sit between lines on my lips. I don't find them hydrating so my opinion I think it is most suitable for those with relatively healthy lips.
Burberry lip cover in Delicate rose 22 and Devon Sunset 28, both are nude colour from the name I think you can guess which colour is more of a pinkie nude and which colour is more of a corally nude. This formula applies really nicely, light-weight and very opaquely which no patchiness feeling. And the coolest thing I discover about the packaging is the magnetic lid that will flip itself around when you close the lid to ensure that it's in the right spot. I love twisting it around and listen to that clicking noise hehehe I'm a maddy girl I know. Aside from what I love about this formula I also have a little complain on its smell and taste. I think it smells like old-fashion lipstick and taste terrible.
Yves Saint Laurent. I'm sure everyone can recognise it from that golden luxe bullet. Amazing packaging design. After being obsess with MAC, Illamasqua and Topshop for awhile I just have a chance to get hold of YSL lipstick just around the beginning of this year! However this brand soon become my favourite high-end brand. Thanks to my sister that gave me her YSL lipstick to me. It's Rouge Pur Couture 09 Rose Stiletto, a fine shimmery deep plum colour with a soft silky finish lipstick that can last whole day. Provides medium to full coverage and doesn't accentuate flakes, applies evenly and precisely. Few months ago I was desperately want new lipstick in my life and luckily I found a voucher code from Feelunique.com. It was a £10 off when spend over £25 deal so I ordered myself Rough Volupte 13 Peach Passion. This colour is soooo pretty and really pigmented. The smell is also lovely like peachy fruity smell. It's light yet rich creamy finish surprisingly it last longer than many other creamy lipsticks but the downside is that the formula tend to setting into the lines and dry spot so it might need a bit of lipbalm underneath. Baby doll kiss & blush 4 Orange Fougueux that sleek packaging that make me think of nail polish caught my eyes the day it's released. The formula is velvety creamy that will dry matte but not give any uncomfortable finish. I found that it's not as pigmented as I thought but it's buildable.

Shu Uemura I only bought one lipstick from this brand and the lipstick I'm going to show you today is sadly had been discontinued. It's Rouge Unlimited PK343 a babypink with blue undertone. In term of packaging if I have to be honest I don't really like it, it made with thick clear plastic that although doesn't look cheap bit for that price I think I can get better. The formula is feel like another tint lip balm that start off sheer but it's buildable with sheen finish.
Which one is you favourite? Any recommendation which colour I should get?
