  1. I just bought two YSL glossy stains and my lips are peeling horribly. Funny that you didn't find that to be the case.

    1. I had the same experiance. I tried the no 18 and it felt awfull on my lips? Normally but lips are not dry at all?

  2. hi Rae! I am a new to your blog/youtube channel and every time I watch a video of you I always think you are wearing the nicest lip color!
    I was so excited to see you do this post with swatches thanks :)
    Also, could you recommend a good sheer coral-pink shade? (gloss or lipstick)

    1. I got the YSL Rouge Volupté Perle in No 115 – Shimmering Coral. Just love the lipstick and the colour normally I cannot wear a coral but this is so soft coral pink that it looks great!

  3. What do you think of Dior Addict lipsticks and how does it compare to the ones you described?

  4. Hi Rae! This is a beautiful selection of colors! I love the finish & colors offered in the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine line, but I cannot get past the heavy rose smell. Do you have any suggestions for a lipstick that has a similar look on the lips, but without that "lipstick" smell? Thanks!


  5. I also have the most sensitive lips which peel on alomst every product! I am happy to say that the givenchy lipsticks do work for me!
    (ysl is the worst. My lips rebell on every ysl lipstick like crazy!)

  6. My CCO has the discontinued Tom Ford lipsticks at about 20% off. You may check there.

  7. Please RAE next time you do a lipstick video, when you put the colours on pic. dont use your skin use the lips cause we see how the colours realy look llike. Thanks for your reviews.

  8. Hi Rae!! Nice post! I was just wondering if you tried any of the YSL lipsticks and what you think are the best?? I have the exact same lip type as you!

  9. Rae do you have something you've found to equal the Chanel Chance since it's been discontinued? I have been looking everywhere for it and can't even find anything close.

    1. I wish! The shimmer-free, milky/semi-sheer pink colors always seem to be the hardest colors to dupe.. I'll be sure to announce it in a blog post once I do!
