Beauty Buys - Laura Mercier, Too Faced, YSL

'BEAUTY BUYS' is just another term coined for the infamous 'HAUL'. Its the list of things I buy, try and the ones you will hear me 'yak', 'blab', 'review' about in next few posts!!! Call this a 'Preview'..

I am in search of a lipstick that is not too pink and not too Brown, but has a touch of rosey mauve shade leaning more towards mauve and less towards rose???. Not too cool nor too warm. It should not be matte, but still have the needed sheen. I am just looking for that perfect one! A color and texture that is in my imagination.

This search lead to a mini haul. I picked few new Lipsticks and a Brush set.

Laura Mercier Lip Colour - Crème in shade DRY ROSE: A Rose Mauve Brown Shade

YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE SPF15 - Pure Colour Satiny Radiance in shade 28 Rose Boheme - pink plum

Too Faced Lip Color Creme in shades Cinnamon Kiss and Sweet Maple.

Hopefully something would be close enough to the one I am looking for. I will review these and do a little color comparison with the many more similar shades that I already have in my collection.

Real Techniques Brush Set: I had tried this brand by Samantha Chapman (available at Ulta) in November last year. Their Powder Brush is really good and very affordable. It is holding up really well and I am using it practically everyday. This time I picked a small set of four brushes.
Hopefully they will perform as good as the powder brush.

Reviews and thoughts to follow in future weeks.

So who all are having Oscar party tonight? 


  1. I'd love to hear about the LM lipstick. I love her makeup but haven't tried any lip products x

  2. Great buys. :)
