Yves Saint Laurent c’est incroyable!

Hi my lovelies. How are you all? Are you having a good start to the new year? I promised myself that I would put a stop to spending so much money on make-up & clothes in 2011. I’ve been doing okay - really, I am! I’ve stopped myself MANY times from impulse buying. However, I was talking to Summer aka Little Miss NC25 about YSL lipsticks! I personally hadn’t tried them but she advised me to try out ‘Sweet Honey’ … So you know what I did…

Okay, OKAY! I got three :oops: not just the one! LOL. I got two Rouge Volupté lipsticks & one Gloss Pur.

Gloss Pur £9.95
Rouge Volupté £15.90

In reality the Gloss Pur gloss retails at £20.50 & the Rouge Volupté lip stick retails at £21.50. I got them both from CheapSmells.com (hence the disgustingly CHEAP price of them both!).  Their delivery was free which is great but they arrived quite late which I wasn’t too pleased about. They took around a week if not slightly over a week to get delivered. If you’re not in a hurry to get your products then I’d definitely reccomend the website - it’s full of BARGAINS!

I absolutely LOVE the packaging of the lipsticks. They’re so luxurious & feel very rich! They all show their colour on the middle band which is great. It saves you having to open it up or read the colour name/number underneath.

One thing I think all lipsticks should have is a MIRROR on the lid, like YSL’s Rouge Volupté lip sticks! It’s little things like that which make applying lip products on effortless. All three of three of the products smell & taste really yummy :)

I couldn’t resist getting a pink colour :) Sweet honey was the colour that Summer suggested I should get & I do love it! I totally don’t regret getting any of these three colours. They’re all GORGEOUS!

This is what they look like with a FLASH. As you can tell the lip sticks are very pigmented & the reason why they’re shiny is due to their moisturising properties.

I absolutely HATE sticky glosses. That includes a lot of MAC ones! However, this one is so smooth & feels more like a moisturising lip balm than anything else. The colour isn’t very pigmented but would look great on top of Costa Chic by MAC.

I’ve been wearing this to interviews as it’s a very CLASSY & professional colour. This would be my go-to lip product for work or professional settings, that’s for sure.

Opera Rose on the other hand is a lovely VIBRANT pink colour! It’s so pigmented & moisturising - I absolutely love it. It feels really light & lasts for a fair few hours before you have to top it up. This can only mean that it’ll last you for a while :)

I’m totally gonna be keeping an eye out for more YSL products now that I’ve found these GEMS :) Do you have any YSL that you’d recommend? I really want to try YSL’s Touche Eclat Radiant concealer… Would you say it’s worth it?

P.S - Check out Summer’s BLOGYOUTUBE channel :) I love her videos!

    • Kaushal says:

      Gorgeous isn’t it? I don’t have a pink quite like that, it looks amazing in flash (almost lip tar like!) CheapSmells is the way to go for cheap stuff :) No worries doll xx

    I love YSL lipsticks! I only have 1 .. Pink Lingerie, but that Opera Rose looks so gorgeous! I love the casing too.

    • Kaushal says:

      The name of that lippy sounds super nice! The casing is so nice, it’s a little heavier than most but makes it feel luxurious for sure.

  7. anastasia says:

    Oh em geeee! I love these! That pink is beyond gorgeous, I love cheapsmells.com but you’re right their delivery time is way too long, but I suppose great bargains come at a price hehe xxx

  8. Rinz says:

    ahhh i love all of those colors! they look pretty on you!! one question, what do u use to keep ur lips so smooth like that?

    • Kaushal says:

      Aww, thank you!! I don’t really use anything? But sometimes when I feel my lips getting rough, I slap loads of Vaseline onto my lips at night & then use a towel in the morning to scrub off all the dead skin :) x

  9. Sriya says:

    I saw these yesterday I love them both.. Especially Opera Rose! I want! xx

  10. Lily says:

  11. mw says:

  15. roshni says:

    I couldn’t find those shades on cheapsmells lol but i LOVE ysl ! I’ve got their lipstick in faubourg peach (rouge volupte no.30) and it’s moisturising and lasts on all day :) it’s such a gorgeous colour and it smells like watermelons :) xx

    • Kaushal says:

      Oh no, really? Oh wow, that colour sounds very nice! LOL I totally get what you mean about the watermelon thing! Hehe xx

  16. Paris says:

    The packaging really is beautiful. And just the little fact of having something, so beautiful and designer is lovely, even if they cost you! (:

  17. Sana says:

    Yummy!!! Love them all, especially the Sweet Honey. I can’t stop loving coral and nude shades, ever! <3

    • Kaushal says:

      Oh my gosh, I love corals, nudes, pinks & reds! Actually, I don’t mind a bit or purple either but love those colours x

  18. shikha says:

    I recently bought Rouge Volupte in “coral sun” and the Gloss Pur “Pure coral” you bought. Love both of them! how gorgeous is sweet honey, it suits you a lot actually…like you said it looks perfect for work! :)

    Regarding the YSL Touche Eclat, I would say defo try it out as a tester first because I think it really depends on your skin tone.. I had bought it and for me, it didn’t exactly go too well with my skin tone. I find it a little too pinkish! Then again, I say it would depend on your skin tone. I’ts great to use though, love the click-able pen and the finish is nice and light, but I guess if it had matched my skin a little better I would’ve loved it. So It’ll be better if you just check it out to see if it matches you :)

    Also I was just wondering, in Mac, what would be your skin tone? NC40? I just needed it for a reference especially when you do lip colors etc. thanks so much. I absolutely love your blog. keep up the great work!

    • Kaushal says:

      Wow, ‘Coral Sun’ sounds amazing! Thanks my lovely! Oh, I shall definitely get one of the YSL girls to try it out on my skin before I splurge away! LOL I’m NC35 in MAC :) I hope that helps Shikha? Thanks so much hun x

  19. Sami says:

    Im obbsessed with YSL Rouge Volupte lippies! They have got to be the most pigmented, moisturising lipsticks I’ve ever come across… The pink looks really nice :-)

    One thing that annoys me about them (other than the PRICE) is that they don’t last long at all… I usually save mine for a special occasion xx

  20. Aysh says:

    Oh my gosh they all look so lush!! A YSL lippie is deffo on my wishlist at the mo…one day soon… ‘;) The packaging is just gorguz too. And umm that site has TOTALLY gone in my favourites!!! ;)

    Love Aysh xoxo

  21. Nazneen says:

    These are sooo pretty! I love the YSL Golden Glosses, I think the Gloss Purs are basically a plain version. I’ve never used Cheapsmells, going to take a look!

  22. Emily says:

    I am off to buy one of these today! They look amazing on you but then you have a pout to die for! Not sure what colour to get really, will have to have a browse.

    I used to have a Touche Eclat, however, for something that is supposed to cover up dark circles, it just seemed to highlight mine. I agree with Shikha and think that a tester is the best way to go! xo

    • Kaushal says:

      Oh no way Emily! Lol ah, you should go for a nude/pink as they never go out of fashion. I’ll deffo try or get a tester of the Touche Eclat before splurging my money away! x

  23. Jo says:

    I just bought Opera Rose too - I LOVE IT! I got mine from Boots but so wish i’d gone to Cheap Smells, grrr fail! But at the time i bought 2 and paid for one with my points so it was kinda free, hehe - total justification!

    The gloss in particular looks lovely in your pics.

    Jo xoxo

    • Kaushal says:

      I wore it today! It’s such a nice shade, my boy loves it on me too which is always a plus! Hehe LOL absolutely loving your justification - it’s totally something I’d do hehe xx
