Mini Printemps Haul (YSL lip stain, clarins cleansers, French bulldogjumper)

So after a beautifully snowy weekend in Deauville, France, I have returned with these three little beauties to talk about. Before I get started I hope everyones enjoying the snow where you are :) and even though it turns me into a bag of stress panicking if I'm going to fall and slip so I have to cling to anything in sight (fences, people, street lamps)  it still looks very beautiful from the window.

So first off here we have the cutest french bulldog jumper ever if I do say so myself! The brand is called, Comptoir des Cotonniers, which is quite a mouthful, even more so in my non-convincing french accent. It's 50% wool which is pretty good, its soft and not itchy against the skin. I'm obsessed with anything with french bulldogs because finally me and Clément decided to have a little french bulldog puppy of our own and she is only two-and-abit months old (aww!). I will have to post a pic of her soon before she's not a puppy anymore.


Here you can see I fell into the hype of the YSL lip stains that everyone loves, and I'm so glad i did! I have the number 9, which is this beautiful red, and I'm really glad I went for this colour because I just love how it looks on.  I also got these cute tiny travel size clarins cleansers and eye make-up remover, which I'm still yet to try, so if they're good I'll be sure to report back.





I have very pale skin and I think its very complimenting but I also think it would be gorgeous with any skin tone. It's definitely a very nice alternative to lipstick as it has this beautiful shine that lasts for sooo long.




So pros for this are that its very pigmented, it lasts for a very long time, they have a very nice range of colours, very unusual than standard lip gloss or lipstick, and thats definitely in a good way. It feels nice on the lips and the shine lasts for hours. Now for the cons, I wouldn't say it lasts after eating, mine did come off and I was only left with a thin red line around my lips which definitely looked odd, so you would need to re-apply. I found you have to be very careful how you're applying, it could get messy, so its not something you can just quickly put on with no mirror. I also wouldn't use this everyday because I think it could be a bit drying to the lips. So thats it! it has a lot more pros to me, and even if it's a bit expensive, I think its a nice luxurious product that every girl should own :)
