It's my birthday and I can buy if I want to

My birthday is tomorrow (21!!!) and I thought it'd be nice to treat myself to a little present, especially after receiving a $15 gift card from Sephora for being a beauty insider! It was the perfect opportunity to get something that I've always wanted, but could never justify paying full price for. For me, this translates into a YSL Rouge Volupte. At $34 a pop, this is the big daddy of all lipsticks. 

Now I've heard loads about shades like Lingerie Pink and Tender Peach, and they are beautiful. But something about this one screamed "birthday indulgence"


It's the perfect bright coral with a hint of red/pink. I have pretty pigmented lips so when I put on lipstick the berry/red tones in my lips change the shade of the lipstick. I have been longing for a bright coral lipstick like Costa Chic or Jazzed by MAC, but when I tried those on, the colors did not show true on my lips. The Rouge Volupte defines opaque - what you see is what you get and that's what makes this lipstick so unique for me.

Excuse the frizzball hair =x
Ah! I love it and I'm so glad to have it in my collection =)

The $15 off only worked with a $40 purchase, so... I also got this nail polish


Teehee! Let the birthday celebrations begin...
