Hi my lovelies. How are you all? Are you having a good start to the new year? I promised myself that I would put a stop to spending so much money on make-up & clothes in 2011. I’ve been doing okay – really, I am! I’ve stopped myself MANY times from impulse buying. However, I was talking to Summer aka Little Miss NC25 about YSL lipsticks! I personally hadn’t tried them but she advised me to try out ‘Sweet Honey’ … So you know what I did…
Okay, OKAY! I got three not just the one! LOL. I got two Rouge Volupté lipsticks & one Gloss Pur.
Gloss Pur £9.95
Rouge Volupté £15.90
In reality the Gloss Pur gloss retails at £20.50 & the Rouge Volupté lip stick retails at £21.50. I got them both from CheapSmells.com (hence the disgustingly CHEAP price of them both!). Their delivery was free which is great but they arrived quite late which I wasn’t too pleased about. They took around a week if not slightly over a week to get delivered. If you’re not in a hurry to get your products then I’d definitely reccomend the website – it’s full of BARGAINS!
I absolutely LOVE the packaging of the lipsticks. They’re so luxurious & feel very rich! They all show their colour on the middle band which is great. It saves you having to open it up or read the colour name/number underneath.
One thing I think all lipsticks should have is a MIRROR on the lid, like YSL’s Rouge Volupté lip sticks! It’s little things like that which make applying lip products on effortless. All three of three of the products smell & taste really yummy
I couldn’t resist getting a pink colour Sweet honey was the colour that Summer suggested I should get & I do love it! I totally don’t regret getting any of these three colours. They’re all GORGEOUS!
This is what they look like with a FLASH. As you can tell the lip sticks are very pigmented & the reason why they’re shiny is due to their moisturising properties.
I absolutely HATE sticky glosses. That includes a lot of MAC ones! However, this one is so smooth & feels more like a moisturising lip balm than anything else. The colour isn’t very pigmented but would look great on top of Costa Chic by MAC.
I’ve been wearing this to interviews as it’s a very CLASSY & professional colour. This would be my go-to lip product for work or professional settings, that’s for sure.
Opera Rose on the other hand is a lovely VIBRANT pink colour! It’s so pigmented & moisturising – I absolutely love it. It feels really light & lasts for a fair few hours before you have to top it up. This can only mean that it’ll last you for a while
I’m totally gonna be keeping an eye out for more YSL products now that I’ve found these GEMS Do you have any YSL that you’d recommend? I really want to try YSL’s Touche Eclat Radiant concealer… Would you say it’s worth it?
