Oh God, one other French magnificence product? I urge of you, let me make my case.
Think about wanting to use any little bit of pigment beneath your masks earlier than going out wherever nowadays—for me at the least, Yolaine’s La Mousse de Rouge is the motivation for extending the trouble. Camille Yolaine, Yolaine’s founder, informed me that the fluffy, light-as-air lipsticks had been impressed by the tender texture of mousse au chocolat. You might have about 60 seconds to provide the cloud-like method your individual quantity of smudging for a wonderfully messy look. (I like making use of the lipstick with a lip brush, after which firing off a number of purpseful smacks so it seems simply south of neat.) Then, it dries to a cushty powder end that doesn’t really feel, effectively, dry. Matte, however not stiff. And completely smudge-proof.
However the lipstick’s output is only one a part of the story—can we pause for a second to debate the packaging? Taking cues from paint tubes, they’re as fairly in a bag because the method inside. The identical goes for the model’s lip scrub and balm. Of their toile-wrapped metallic oval circumstances which can be virtually sweet tin-like, these dainty little lip enhances are absurdly cute. They’re the sort of factor you need to whip out of your bag and conspicuously apply simply to present it off.
Again to La Mousse de Rouge, I’m keen on the shade Daphne, which Yolaine describes as a “nude purple.” I feel it’s a purple for wimps like me, who’re intrigued by the thought of a wealthy purple, however are too intimidated to drag the set off. It’s extra like a watermelon, simply bitten sort of hue. Like a variety of lip colours nowadays, it’s additionally formulated to work on cheeks, though I haven’t tried that but. Part of me worries that I’ll undergo the tube too quick if I exploit it each methods. For now, I’m simply attempting to savor this one small tube of pleasure for so long as I can.
