the packaging is pretty simple,made out of plastic,black body ,with a small window for us to be able to see the actual shade,and a gold cap with the YSL logo on it,

doe foot applicator,i like that its slightly bent,hugs my big lips perfectly.the scent is a little off for me,its quite strong,although it does fade after a while,so that isn't a problem for me,

staying power,well that's what i think this stain is known for,it stays on my lips without any smudge and still true to its color for a good 5-6 hours thats even after i eat and drink.however what i do is i layer the stain and letting each layer dry first before i apply the next one

here's the swatches;

one swipe of glossy stain gives you that natural just bitten lips,well that is if the shade that you've chosen leans more on the red side.very comfortable on the lips, doesn't feel like i have anything on,it isn't sticky nor slimy in anyway.

two swipes if i want some glossy lips without over doing it,i usually do two layers,you can see the gloss of the stain but not that much,it will give you a much deeper pigmentation as well.

three swipes of the stain.-now if i want something more obvious and i want to get the full effect of the glossy stain,i would do three i do more layers i noticed that the shade is getting a tad deeper and deeper.

Thursday, March 28, 2013
i missed out on so many mac collections,simply because i don't usually go Gaga over their releases,last year i saw a few videos of this Marilyn Monroe mac collections on you tube and i fell in love not only with their packaging but also with their shade selections!however its no longer available on the market,im glad that someone had an extra pair to spare so i finally got my own Marilyn Lipstick! =D

 photo f799d26b-9537-450b-9f0e-0fdd1e227764_zps21253bc4.jpg
Look at how cute oh scratch that,look at how classy this packaging is,i cant call marilyn cute! no no no,she's always classy,i guess the time that i can call her cute is when i see her and hello kitty cuddling in one packaging.

on the other side,say hi to my sister from another mother. =).Marilyn Monroe,i think you can never go wrong on collections with marilyn monroe in just looks so hmm timeless.

 photo 4e62e902-6e7a-4d41-99d2-87b80e645509_zpsaf548ca2.jpg
the first time i saw this,i was actually hesitant if im going to buy it or not,i said to myself..not another red shade..fortunately when it arrived,i was glad that its not as red as i thought it would be.

 photo 3dc6c331-57be-4e9a-80a9-1feb0a520258_zps342c157d.jpg
there you go,reddish pink,its not gonna be as bold as your regular red lipstick,but its still bright enough for a noticeable lips.

on my lips:

one swipe..i love that i dont need to layer it to get a good pigmentation.

 photo 8aeb080c-433f-4e5d-bec0-7596a4a0800a_zpsd852f8f6.jpg
it looks really different from other pink or red pink lipsticks that i own,its a satin finish,but its definitely a lot creamier and moisturizing than my other mac satin lipsticks,very easy to apply and it doesn't accentuate lines and/or flakes.

 photo 3612e00c-5502-4801-ae62-3f0cf37a3c69_zps93248966.jpg
my lips looks so plump up on this angle =D not big,just plump !

 photo DSCN8210_zpsff59d068.jpg
me wearing Mac Marilyn Monroe in Love Goddess,this has been my shade to go since i bought it,im hoping that Mac re-promotes this shade as well,cause if you're that person who isn't ready to wear red lipsticks yet,this one is a must try,its a lot softer than my regular red lipsticks,so its not going to be an in your face shade.

 photo DSCN6596_zps094a53e3.jpg
very pretty shade,although a lot of people describe this as a hot pink lipstick,on me it looks muted light berry shade,its a great everyday lipstick,that doesn't dry out my lips

 photo DSCN6597_zps4539cc85.jpg
and since its a lustre you can definitely wear it sheer,however its somewhat build-able as well,plus it has the right kind of gloss that does not accentuate my lip lines. yeah if im going to rate this lipstick ill give it
4 out of 5

Open the cap,divide the hair into sections and begin application
Leave for 20 to 30 mins wash off with lukewarm water and then rinse thoroughly with shampoo or soap
