YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks with Swatches ♥

| On :
It's Christmas day tomorrow! Hope everyone everyone gets what they want and has a gorgeous Christmassy day. I wish it was a white Christmas and I woke up and looked out my window and a lovely sight of snow everywhere! I thought I would do a Christmas Eve blog because most of you have requested me to write and swatch about my latest YSL lipstick purchases! So here goes lovelies..

I bought two colours, quite pinky nudes! You do need a good nude in your lipstick collection. I'll talk about the "Rouge Pur Couture" range first. These lipsticks have a huge range of shades, so you will definitely find a colour you will love. They are in the most gorgeous gold packaging that I adore because it looks so luxurious! With these cases, they are perfect handy mirrors! The lipstick itself has the YSL logo engraved which I think is beautifully detailed.

These lipsticks are super pigmented and intense, they stay a true colour all day with the most radiant satin finish. Ladies you will love these. The coverage starts of with a medium pigment first then you can gradually build it up with layers to make it the perfect coverage for you. The formula is quite buttery and creamy, glides on your lips so easily with one swipe, its full of pigment. I have found these really hydrating on the lips, and that is a rare finding in most lipsticks which a perfect pigment.

It is important to have a good lasting time for lipsticks because you want lipsticks to last a very long time. These lipsticks have a gorgeous radiant finish for four-five hours on my lips which I think is pretty good, for a hydrating smooth lipstick on my type of lips.

Let's talk about the shades I purchased. I'll begin with "Shade 10" which is Beige Tribute. The picture below is the right side of my arm! Although the two shades look familiar in the tube they are so very different. This shade is more of a flesh colour need with a little bit of blue toned pink, which reminds me of "Snob" from MAC!

Next up is "Shade 06" is Rose Bergamasque and that's the left swatch on my arm below! This gorgeous shade is definitely a high demand shade and is quite popular. The shade is perfect for bold eyes and that gorgeous nude lip. A very feminine colour, because even though it's a nude there is a hint of subtle pink. There is no need for gloss with this lipstick, perfect radiant pearly lippy.

Which one would you purchase or try on?

#askashleighbeauty Time ♥

| On :
Evening readers, on this cold winter night on Christmas Eve Eve, well I haven't done an Ask AshleighBeauty post in a long time and I asked you lovely readers on Instagram to give some questions which you would like the answer too. I'm in a festive mood so thought I would add some festive questions that some of you asked! Thank you by the way for all your lovely questions, so here goes!

Question One;
If you could wear one item out of your makeup bag forever, what would it be? by thatonecalledmeg on instagram.
Tough question there lovely meg! It would always be mascara and recently I have been loving Revlon's Lash Potion mascara, so yes that would be my mascara I would wear all the time! It's the best mascara I have used in a very long time, woohoo to Revlon!

Question Two;
Do you think "Expensive" makeup mean "Better Quality"? by emanuelaspalletta on instagram.
Not always, course there is higher end and more expensive products out there that are better than your normal drugstore brands, and that is why they are more expensive due to them actually working or giving your the perfect makeup HOWEVER there is expensive brands that isn't worth the money at all because the quality of their makeup is bananas. I won't name or shame any brands as I don't put negative reviews on my blog! If I don't review it then it isn't good! So yeah I have found that some expensive brands should not price some of their items that high when they don't work or the quality is poop!

Question Three;
When did you start wearing makeup and was it because you were self conscious of your appearance or just wanted to play and create looks? by _fragilepetal on instagram.
I bought, well should I say my mum bought me my first mascara which was "High Impact" by Clinique or it could of been a "Dior" one, can't remember. I was aged about 14/15 and mascara was the only thing I wore at that age, however I blame my mum for my makeup addiction. It isn't because I am self conscious. I love makeup, I love how you can play with makeup and beauty and what it can do to you and just have fun with it really!

Question Four;
Quick Cure for spots? by meganelizabeth200 on instagram.
I shouldn't advice you this because it's not really a proper product for spots but.. I have seen it work on so many people and my friends. That spot curer product your after is toothpaste! Simple apply a little dab on your spot and leave it on for a good 20-30mins and it really reduce that spot! Yes it works.. If you fancy more of a "real" product then Clinique's "Spot Gel" is also a life saver!

Question Five;
If you could get any tattoo, what would you get? by pxstel on instagram.
I already have a tattoo! It is a tribal style that goes from my side belly too up my ribs and it has gorgeous pink flowers from small to big as you get to the top of my ribs, along with love hearts that intertwine. This basically means, I am the flower and I have grown into a bigger flower (woman) and had love throughout and then I have hidden "D" and "M" which you can't see straight away, but that means "Daddy" & "Mum" as they have helped me become the woman I am today!

Question Six;
What do you want for Christmas? by flowersinthewind on instagram.
My mum and dad bought it me today actually but can't use it til' christmas! It's a Nikon D3200 camera for my YouTube and still photographs for instagram! I can't thank them enough! It's what I have always wanted for a few months now and I got it!

Question Seven;
What is the best present you have ever gotten or given away for Christmas? by xfashionisax on instagram.
Currently my best present I have received was two! I received my iPad last year and now my Nikon camera for my youtube this year, both from my parents! Also my boyfriend bought me the most gorgeous fur coat the other year that I fall back in love with every winter! The best present I have given out is probably some techno things for my dad, a Samsung tablet for my mum last year!

Question Eight;
What will you be wearing Christmas Day/or worn before? by vicsvortex on instagram.
This year I have no clue what I am wearing however I know I will be wearing red lipstick has that is quite festivey! Last year I wore a fluffy cable knit jumper and I think it was leggings probably with red lipstick of course! If your wearing all white with halos this year make sure you put some red lippy on!

Question Nine;
When did you stop believing in Santa? by jodie_weston on instagram.
I never stopped believing in Santa because he is a real person! However I stopped believing the flying reindeers and that when I was about 8/9 because I seen my parents eat the carrot and the mince pies that they put out for "Santa" to eat! Hahaha.. Still makes me laugh.

Question Ten;
What would you do if you won the lottery & what would you buy first? by dreaming_in_chiffon on instagram.
If my friends read this, they will back me up! I have always said if I win the lottery the first thing I would buy would be makeup! Yes makeup and beauty. I think that proves my slight obsession for makeup and beauty eheh oops!

Well gorgeous people! You got any extra three questions squeezed on there, only usually do seven! Felt festive and in a good mood and all the festive questions made me happy! If I didn't fit yours on then don't worry there is always a next time! Love you all

Signorina by Salvatore Ferrgamo & an announcement ♥

| On :
Happy Christmas Eve Eve! Technically is, and I have some very exciting news to tell you! My mum and dad took me to Currys which is a shop that sells all technology and bits! They bought me a Nikon camera for my YouTube channel which will be released very shortly. Can't believe it is finally kickin' off and getting started, it's been a long wait ladies and gents. My parents won't let me have it til' Christmas day which is understandable I guess hehe..

Back to the Blogmas! Ah you have one day left to get your presents and if you are still stuck what to get yours friends or even your mum for christmas then I have the perfect and personally a new favourite of mine fragrance!

Signorina by Salvatore Ferrgamo, oh laa laa is this delicious! It is a ladies fragrance, of course! The bottle is extremely pretty and would catch any ladies eyes. The fragrance bottle is sophisticated yet simple and the bow detail which definitely finishes the look. This is a bottle that owns a spot anywhere on your vanity, the gold with the lilac ad pink gives it the finishing touch. When I looked at this bottle, I imagined the fragrance to be light, pretty and I'd say happy too.

Salvatore Ferrgamo has made this fragrance so it suits everyone, as it is fruity and radiantly beautiful. I would say it is aimed for the younger market but ayy? I think it will suit the older market to because of its simple scent. Continuing with the fragrance, it's not loud but it certainly is juicy with hints of red berries, vanilla and rose plus more. This has feminine written all over it gorgeous ladies so I suggest you read on..

I wouldn't say it's woody,musky nor dry or even citrus. It's creamy and velvety, quite like a dream. When I first had a smell of this fragrance it drew me in and it does not smell like any other fragrances in my eyes, or just I say nose hehe! It's got the perfect blend of freshness, fruit and creamy. I have noticed that vanilla is one of the most popular notes at the moment, yummy.

There is nothing wrong with this fragrance, not overpowering and not too girly either! They put a lot of thought into this scent to make it suitable to most women. It is worth the pennies has the scent lasts for hours on me anyway, which is a massive bonus because most scents don't even last an hour on me! An amazing product overall, it comes in two sizes and I am sure I seen a body wash or lotion that you can also buy with it! I would say it's a perfect present for not just Christmas but birthdays too, also in a few months we do have Mother's Day coming, so treat anyone special with this gorgeous scent.
