Some YSL I Could Not Resist!

Hi ladies,
Happy Friday!

For some strange reason (unknown to mankind) I never owned anything from YSL. Not because I couldn't afford it but because every time I ventured to their counters nothing really attracted me.

I guess their most hyped product is the Touch Eclat. I got it some time ago from a blog sale and I was so unimpressed! My Laura Mercier would throw it out of the park a million times!
The eyeshadows were pretty (yes I'll give them that) but everything to me looks overpriced.

However, I will blame Sanni Mai for this! Completely. 
She did some videos featuring the Rouge Volupte in shade 30 and I HAD TO HAVE IT! 

Shade number 30 is probably the perfect peach! It has the right amount of coral, pink and orange. It's such a lovely colour that I'm sure will look good on anyone! I'm so happy I got it.

And because I was there on a "purchasing mode" I looked at their latest offerings too. They have a collection going on of gel liner. But not any gel liner- these are all super fabulous and glittery. Perfect for a night out. I swatched all of them and I decided to take with me two shades a green and a purple.
The purple made it's way back to the counter as I had a near dupe by Bobbi Brown which wasn't even half way.

I kept the emerald green one. It's called 6 Noir Jade/ Jade Black.
I love it. I used it already and seriously this stuff does not come off! When I was at the counter the lady gave me an oil based make-up remover and I had to swipe it like 3 times to get it off! Amazing.

The shade is a gorgeous emerald colour that in the shade looks like more black but under the light or in the sun (as below) it shows it's green side.

I'm in love!

The gel liner was £20. Link
The Lipstick was £22. Link

I have photos of a FOTD using the gel liner. I will post them during the weekend.
And yes, I will be posting during Xmas. I love blogging and I love having some extra days at home to share more beauty related stuff! :)



What's your favourite YSL product?
Which colour shall I go for next? I'm obsessed with this lipstick!

    @ m i s s a r c h : LOL. You made me laugh! Am I a bad influence then?<br />You have 7 of these!! Uhh which one would you recommend I get next? You know I&#39;m a more peachy person rather than pink. I don&#39;t do pink lips unless it&#39;s super bright. Let me know!! Muakk. X<br /><br />@Sandra: I love it! E você também Sandra!

    i&#39;m obsessed with YSL. I think it has the prettiest packaging ever and even more luxurious than Chanel dare I say it/ Anyway I spend ages at the YSL counter. Like you I find them soo expensive I don&#39;t splurge too often But I am obsessed with thier lipsticks. I have a rouge velupt in no2 a perfect nude. but I am in love with my rouge pur in 148 I think. It&#39;s a light nude and oh so perdy. I much prefer the texture to the rouge velupt.<br /><br />oops bit of a ramble but so excited about YSL :-)
