Obsession Du Jour 5.5.09

I needed to somehow brighten up my dreary, gray day here in NYC. The weather has been awful, non stop rain (and mist) for days now, it's reminding of rainy London but WORSE because no one even has a fun accent here!

Anyway, I put on my instant day brightener lipstick, YSL Rouge Volupte #7 in Lingerie Pink.
It is a true light bubblegum barbie pink and I Love it!

  2. Jassy- i hate that! Take a little break and play with some make up. What helps me is making goals and when I meet the goals then I can shop/play with makeup/ watch youtube...etc.

  3. I soooo want the #7...Looks perfect! Bright lipsticks do the trick for me too: either bright purple or bright pink! ;)

  5. The #7 seems to look very similar to the 907 Shu that you recently wrote about (and I'm dying to purchase with the saleee)..
    what do you say? is it worth having both?

  6. Tine_mbc- lipsticks I guess can brighten up anyones day huh?? Which is your perfect bright lipstick?

  7. Happiness- Hm, They are similar but YSL is a lot more poppy. Its more of a bubblegum pink, Shu is more muted nude pink. I think you need BOTH!! Let me know what you decide on!

  17. Great colour on you! I've got #1 and #2 in the Rouge Voulupt and they're beautiful!
    Red lipstick is a real pick-me-up on rainy days, I love a shot of colour in the grey season.
