Switching from big-pow full-coverage cream lipsticks to a sheer, lustrous finish is a bit of a startle for me now. Again, unexpected for a former gloss addict. I may have layered on rather more of this YSL Rouge Pure Shine Lipstick in Blood Orange, $35, than I needed to -- I was looking for the high-impact colour payoff to which I've become accustomed during this Lipstick Diary thing.
I like the shade, though. Pretty for the season, it's part of YSL's summer collection.
