High-End Cosmetics - YSL Lip Oil, Jumbo Eye Marker and Lancome Cushion Blush


High-end cosmetics

Lancome and Yves Saint Laurent are brands that are very popular with everyone who loves high-end cosmetics.

This time I got to play with three products: LANCOME CUSHION BLUSH SUBTIL, YSL VOLUPTE TINT IN OIL and YSL EYE MARKER.

YVES SAINT LAURENT VOLUPTE TINT IN OIL - FALL LOOK 2016


Yves Saint Laurent VOLUPTE TINT IN OIL - FALL LOOK 2016

A revolutionary lip color with a lip tint suspended in a deep conditioning oil. Coat your lips with this lip tint for a lightweight texture that instantly melts onto lips. It is infused with a blend of four essential oils for deep hydration: apricot kernel oil, coriander fruit oil, jojoba seed oil, and possiflora edulis seed oil. Its exclusive applicator envelops the lips in full color and allows for a precise and uniform application. Lightweight and non-sticky, this lip tint offers a new and luminous shine while the tint effect enhances the natural beauty of the lips - making it the perfect combination for youthful looking lips. 
The limited edition Scandal Collection pays tribute to the bold and edgy femininity of Yves Saint Laurent’s most famous designs.

Make me Nude

Is a beautiful lip tint with oils that contains orange and golden pigments. It looks very subtle and pretty on the lips. I do love it as a day lip enhancement, but the biggest downside for me is the scent. It has this extremely strong, peachy scent that ends with an undertone that just doesn't work with me. I get sick in a matter of minutes. So, even if it's beautiful, I can't wear it and it has me wishing it would come without a scent.

YVES SAINT LAURENT EYE MARKER


One eyeliner. Endless possibilities. Yves Saint Laurent Couture Eye Marker liquid eyeliner is designed for an application so simple; you’ll want to wear it every day. The fool-proof applicator contains a precision tip to draw thin lines with ease and a flat surface on the side for thick bold lines. Intense black eyeliner glides on in a single stroke, staying put all day and night for dark eyes until dawn.

The marker looks exactly like those huge school markers, but with a more feminine touch. It must the gold design ;). 
It's very pigmented and once you learn how to use it, it's easy to use. But those first uses can quickly become a horror story if you're not careful. I have small eyelids and because of them, I do try to draw thinner lines. For thinner lines I need a thin brush, but even with this huge felt tip, I managed to create a decent cat eye.
The downside is that's not waterproof. If you eyes tend to water, it can be a problem. But if they don't water, it's there to stick. Even with my oily eyelids, I didn't get any marks around my eyes

LANCOME CUSHION BLUSH SUBTIL

The newest arrival in complexion— this cushion compact blush delivers vibrant color with a dewy glow for naturally flushed, healthy-looking cheeks.

Cushion Blush Subtil gives your cheeks a vibrant, color-infused glow with effortless application.
With highly concentrated color pigments, it only takes a small amount to instantly tint, refresh, and brighten your cheeks.
Plus, its innovative cushion sponge allows for buildable, customized intensity— tap the sponge lightly for a sheer cheek tint, or tap firmly to release more fluid and achieve a bolder look.
Similar to a cushion foundation, the formula is infused with skin care actives that give skin a boost of intense hydration, delivering a cooling sensation while brightening the appearance of skin.
With shades in rose, corals, and pinks, Cushion Blush Subtil has a match for all skin tones.

I got the cushion in the shade Splash Corail which is this pinkish coral color. I love the cushion systems that are well popular in the Asian countries but are a new trend all over Europe and USA. 

The cushion is well infused with color and hydrating ingredients for your blush to look as a healthy glow. 

The thing that surprised me is that there's actually a lot of product in the small pan. And it's really easy to overdo it, but it luckily doesn't look bad in person even if you overdo it. I like the glow it gives me and I think it will be perfect for Fall and Winter when my skin starts do act up a bit.

Overall I think that high-end products are sometimes worth the price. In this case, I like the Cushion blush and would probably enjoy the lip oil if it weren't for the scent.

Do tell me, which is your favorite high-end product?

    1. Hahaha, a ne da je kjut? :D Sicer, če preveč prste tlačiš v blush, pride preveč pigmenta ven, ampak I get it. :D

  2. Mene zelo mika ta cushion, ker sem slišala same pohvale! :) Sem si pa sama izbrala druge stvari za testiranje - koza! :) Anyway, moj naj high-end izdelek je pfff... Verjetno Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye maskara. Čeprav je Diorjeva 999 šminka zelooo blizu! :)

  4. Cushion rdečilo za lica izgleda čudovito :) Že sam koncept teh Cushion sistemov mi je totalno všeč.
    Moj najljubši high-end produkt je Baume de Rose BY TERRY. Sicer košta a kidney or two (zato imam Travel verzijo), ampak je res dober. Nisem še pri nobenem drugem balmu naletela na tako gosto in prijetno teksturo. Pa mogoče še ustnice malo "plumpa".
