I went to Sephora a month or so ago and wanted to pick up something special, and the Sephora I was in just happened to have a huge YSL section. (we see where this is going, yes?) Thinking to myself that I surely should make the most of my circumstances… I spent a lot of money on a lipstick. The End.
Thankfully, though, that was a very happy ending, because the YSL lipsticks are amazing! Of course, the packaging drew me into the gorgeous little rows of golden beauty, and I swatched a few of the shades until I decided which one I wanted. I ended up buying “Nude Beige,” number 1. I also tried number 7, Lingerie Pink, and number 13, Peach Passion. 7 was too blue toned for me, and number 13 was brighter and more peachy, which I knew I wouldn’t get much wear out of in the coming winter months.
Reasons to purchase this:
- Packaging is gorgeous!
- Creamiest, most opaque, and lightest formula I’ve ever tried. Swatch it and you’ll know exactly what I mean.
- Has a light, fruity scent, which is really nice.
- Color is a perfect nude- it’s not too light, but it also has a really neutral tone, so I think it could flatter a lot of people.
Reasons not to purchase this:
- Let’s just be honest, you could buy 6 drugstore lipsticks for the price of this one. Do I still think it’s worth it? Well, I bought it, didn’t I?
