YSL: The Stand Outs


YSL is one of those brands that I used to admire from afar. The packaging is to die for and the products wow me every time I try something new, but the price tag meant that a purchase was a special occasion. Over the last few months I have been lucky enough to try out a few more of their products and I have been so impressed with that I have tried so far. 

I was tempted into buying a lipstick earlier this year, and I have been addicted to YSL products ever since. Each time I would walk past a YSL counter I would be lured in by the beautiful packaging and the huge range of products. Of course it doesn't take much to convince me so every time would walk away with a new purchase. Not so good for the bank account, but I tell myself that its an investment.

I have been loving the Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation over the last few weeks, it's unlike any of my usual day to day foundations. It gives my skin that perfect, flawless finish whilst looking natural and radiant. This foundation will make you glow, which of course, is more than okay with me. Your skin looks healthy, hydrated and bright without feeling heavy or cakey. This foundation works like a dream with the original Touch Eclat, it brightens my under eye circles without creasing, leaving my skin looking flawless and as if I am glowing from within.

The lipsticks from YSL are the biggest stand out for my by far. The colour range never fails to impress me and they always seem to have the exact colour I covet. The formulas are beautiful! They are non drying and long lasting with a gorgeous finish that can't compare to any other lipstick I own. These lipsticks have a very luxurious feel to them with the stunning gold packaging and the rich, velvety formulas.

The mascaras have become a staple in my daily makeup routine. They are so quick and easy to use as they do all of the things you want a good mascara to do. My lashes look instantly longer, defined, separated and volumized from the first coat, a rare quality to find in a mascara. The Baby Doll mascara is definitely a favourite of mine because of the length and separation it gives my lashes, which is perfect for every day wear.
