We’re all for going for the maximal during holiday season – might we suggest Prada’s gold lips? – but when you’re bogged down by all the dinner planning and gift shopping, sometimes it’s easier to just reach for the tried-and-tested red lip. To solve your red lip woes, YSL Beauty presents one of the perfect-est reds we’ve ever seen in the Rouge Pur Couture in Le Rouge (S$49), housed in the season’s limited edition Kiss & Love design to get you in the mood.
To elevate the drama, there’s the Kiss & Love Multi-Usage Palette (S$129) that has your eyes, lips and cheeks covered. The four eye shadow colours – a pearlescent gold, dark brown, shimmery silver and champagne gold – create a simple smokey eye, the Rouge Volupte in Light Pink and Pure Red illuminate your lips with their micro golden pearls and the coral blush gives you a glow without overpowering the eyes and lips. Of course, the cult-favourite Touche Eclat (S$58) is not left out of the mix, perfect for covering the eyebags gained from making all those Christmas shopping decisions. Add the finishing touches with party-ready nails. There’s the classic red La Laque Rouge Pop Art – very matchy-matchy with the Le Rouge – but we like our nails sparkly during festive season, so the Feuille Or, Rouge D’or and Carmin D’or (S$49 each) does the trick with their gold foil and micro-glitter.
