The YSL Lipstick was the product that I really wanted, and now the spending ban was over, I couldn’t wait to get one! I ordered mine from feelunique.com and was quite lucky that they also had 10% off.. Every little helps! After a lot of deliberation I opted for shade 17 ‘Rose in Tension’ It was between this and a more nude colour, but I wanted something a little bit different.
I wont lie when I say I wanted the lipstick for the packaging more than anything, to me it’s like gold treasure.. I had heard so many good reviews about the lipstick, and I went out of my way to do a hell of a lot of research before I took the plunge and spent £21 on it. The lipstick retails at £24.50 So I was quite glad I was able to get a few pounds of it.
The smell is amazing, a bit like watermelon, quite refreshing! I swatched the colour on my hand and then tried it on, and it’s safe to say I was blown away. Having never used a high end lipstick I think the moment was quite heavenly. The colour pay off is incredible and so glossy, but it doesn’t at all feel sticky. I love it. I really do. I’m glad I didn’t go for a more natural colour as I probably would end up using it too often (as daft as that sounds!) I’m looking forward to keeping this for special occasions. Would I buy another one? Yes, yes I would. Is it something I’m going to go out and purchase tomorrow? No. To me this product is something thats a luxury, I wont just go out and buy it in 3 colours, it’s something I’ll save for. I’ve got my eye on some colours, so when the time comes I’ll buy another one, but it wont be any time soon.
Just look at the packaging, how beautiful?
