YSL Orange Fusion


Autumn has clearly made its way to Belgium with a sudden temperature drop of 10 degrees. Slouchy jumpers, comfy boots, and massive scarves have been added to my rather monochrome-centric wardrobe. Red nails are a cult classic – something we never seem to get bored of – and the perfect way to amp up a dull outfit or a dull day for that matter. Finding the perfect red is however a whole other story. I’ve been on the quest to find the best orange-based red lipstick – which I have yet to find – instead I came across YSL Orange Fusion which made my heart flutter ever so slightly.


Look at this bottle of red goodness – isn’t it the prettiest thing ever? A sleek bottle with a golden closure that captures everyone’s attention. Once it grabbed mine, I felt the responsibility to take it home with me – like no one else would, silly me. We all appreciate a wide brush that fits right into the base of our nails. Unlike those from Dior, it has a thin brush that deposits the ideal amount to achieve an even, smooth, and non-streaky application in just one coat. The opaqueness of this formula could however be an issue; One coat is all you need but then again it’s not. Confused? I bet you are. It has a jelly texture which is slightly more transparant as opposed to a straight up cream formula, so be aware ’cause nail lines might peek through. It does however have a very pleasing shiny finish which saves the hassle to apply an extra layer of top coat.

DSCN7286DSCN7569I’ve applied one coat of Orange Fusion over a white base which allows the colour to pop even more but that’s far from mandatory. Orange reds are a modern take on a classic red manicure which is besides extremely flattering on every skin tone. Despite the fact that it’s not a creamy formula, it receives a lot of praise at the house of ALICEYEHPRO. Count on me to splurge on additional shades in the future – an addiction might be on …

    I think YSL has got to be my favorite formula hands down + their brush!!! I love! Compared to Chanel & Dior’s formulas… YSL is the best one for me :)

      Why didn’t I purchase this ages ago? Instead I’ve been spending my money on Chanel polishes, silly me. Really need to splurge on other shades. If you have any suggestions …? ;) X

    YSL polishes are just dreamy from the packaging to the formula. I have Pop Art which is a classic red and love it! It’s a good idea to apply a white base underneath, it really makes the colour pop!

    Absolutely gorgeous!
    I just reviewed an orange red from Butter London. These two look very comparable. :)
