Last month it was my birthday and I was very lucky to receive a YSL gift card from my mother-in-law and brother-in-law. I have never tried YSL make up before so this was a wonderful opportunity to try some of the make-up range.
I choose four items. I’m always looking for a good foundation so I bought the Touche Eclat Le Teint Awakening Weightless Foundation in ‘Cool Ivory’. The packaging is, as you would expect, luxurious. It is a glass bottle and the cap is wonderful with that iconic emblem on top. I am very impressed by this foundation. It really does feel weightless when you apply it onto your skin. It does give nice coverage as I have had blemishes and it did a great job in covering them.
If there is one YSL product you must try it is Touche Eclat Radiant Touch. It is the most famous concealer/highlighter. They were the first to come up with the idea with the pen effect applicator. it is a wonderful easy to use product that every women should have.
I do like a nice blush so I choose Blush Volupte Heart of Light Powder Blush in ‘no 5 favourite’. It comes in a lovely little pouch and it smells great! It is quite pigmented so you don’t need to use very much. It is a wonderful everyday pink.
I love the packaging of YSL lipsticks, it shouts quality and class. Rouge Volupte Radiant Lipstick in no 32 ‘Jealous Coral’. This wasn’t the one I wanted to buy as the sales assistant made a mistake when taking it from stock and I didn’t realize until I came home! It is a nice coral-peachy colour easy to apply and non-drying. It is a creamy version so you do need to re-apply it onto the lips. I will buy the one I really wanted very soon!
YSL really do make some wonderful make-up and this was a lovely and interesting experience in sitting down and having your make-up been applied by somebody else. When you go home and experiment yourself you really do see and feel the difference from what I call the everyday make-up you use.
