To be honest I didnt see really see a difference with flash radiance- it didnt add the highlight I thought it would. I used Perfect Touch Radiant Brush for a while as well but I think its too matte for my liking most of the time now. I also felt its a lot heavier than what I use- Vitalumiere Chanel.

thanks so much for the swatch! I am going to definitely buy one at the end of the month if I have some money left over or it will have to be next month!

I got the Rouge Pur Couture lipstick the other day in #6 Rose Bermagamasque. Such a nice pink-nude and a dream to put on. Definitely going to invest in some more

The appearance is so promising, yet it seems it delivers so little... (temptalia.com):

Quote:
YSL Juicy Grapefruit (03) Volupte Sheer Candy ($30.00 for 0.14 oz.) is, first and foremost, a balm. I say this to help set expectations, because for all of the fancy packaging, it is a lip balm, which means sheer color (YSL describes the color as “a sheer veil of brilliant color”). It is also described as lightweight with ingredients that will keep “lips feeling soft and hydrated for up to eight hours.” Juicy Grapefruit is clear when I wear it. It’s described as a “sheer, fresh baby pink” but it’s a glossy shine and not much else. I would expect to see more color in some of the darker shades in the range, but I haven’t tried them personally. Like other lip products in YSL’s line-up, these are mango-scented.

This product was a total miss for me–I was curious to see how it would work out, and the real point of these is something that’s moisturizing (and perhaps, lightly tinted), but it’s not moisturizing at all. I would apply this, and I would feel the need to reapply after an hour, because it would disappear in that time. I applied it before bed, and my lips felt chapped when I woke up. I don’t have high maintenance lips at all, but these made me feel like the queen of thirsty lips. I would actually describe this as drying, because after an hour of wearing this, all I wanted (and needed!) was more balm. I tried using this and nothing but this for three days, and after those three days, my lips were on the verge of making a run for it.

It has a really emollient base, common to YSL’s Volupte line-up, and it glides on effortlessly, because it’s really creamy (without being thick or opaque). It feels nice on, and it doesn’t feel drying initially. The packaging, too, is just like the Rouge Voluptes but with different coloring, and my favorite part has always been the filigree of YSL logo that wraps around the middle (but it will hold fingerprints). It’s always nice when a high-end brand uses high-end packaging to complement their product line. These were the only high points of this product–this was one of the more disappointing products I’ve tried in the past few months.

Remember, I can only review based on my personal experience with a product–if this formula worked for you, by all means, enjoy it for the both of us! I’ve seen plenty of positive reviews on this product, but I didn’t experience it myself, unfortunately!
And as someone pointed out in the comments section of the site:
Quote:
So let me get this straight. A moisturizing balm that dries out the lips, that’s supposed to leave a wash of color but is clear, and is called Pink Grapefruit but tastes like mango. And costs THIRTY AMERICAN DOLLARS. Huh.

Some news about a new lipstick line (makeup4all.com / blondycandy.com):

Quote:
Yves Saint Laurent are launching the new gorgeous range of lipsticks called Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre which will be available from September.

The packaging is almost like the original Rouge Pur Couture but it doesn’t have a dark line, it has a pure gold packaging.

There are 13 shades, including shade 101 Violet Singulier, which is a purple shade that you can probably mix with other shades, or use on its own if you are brave enough.

The other shades are:
  • 102 L’Or Pur, golden bronze
  • 103 Bronze Persepolis, chocolate bronze
  • 104 Brun Metallique, dark brown metallic
  • 105 Rose De Madere, pinkish brown
  • 106 Beige Iridescent, light golden brown
  • 107 Rose Boreale, beige pink
  • 108 Ocre Rose, golden beige pink
  • 109 Corail D’Or, soft coral
  • 110 Fuchsia Symbole, bright fuchsia pink
  • 111 Rouge Helios, bright orange red
  • 112 Rouge de Venise, dark red
  • 113 Rose Parisien, rose

shame for the Rouge Volupte balms. especially since the Rouge Pur Shine line is doing a fantastic job of moisturizing the lips...
