One brand which I have herd a lot about but yet to experience myself was YSL. Up until a few weeks ago, I had visited their stand and awed at their perfectly packaged goods so I was extremely giddy to finally get an introduction to YSL Beauty.
As part of my leaving present from my previous job, I was generously gifted the two YSL Beauty items I have been contemplating to purchase for a long time. The YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils and YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick in the shade four.
The YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils Mascara is the first mascara which I have wanted to try from the brand. I legitimately squealed when I found this in the gift bag and it has lived up to the hype.
It comes in this stunning gold tube with a decent brush wand. The first thing I noticed was that the brush is more traditional than I was expecting. It is al even and allows you to get to the roots of the lashes. It gives you great volume without clumping your lashes together and focuses on bringing your lashes together with thickness and length.
I will say if you are something who likes to wear flash lashes on the regular may not like this, however if you work in the office and want something subtle on the lids, this is the one for you.
The YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick in the shade four is quite possibly the most beautifully package lipstick I own. When I was unpacking my belongings, this was one I knew I wanted on display.
Shade Four is this stunning Red Shade. It is a great shade and if you like colour without being too in your face. I am a matte lip kind of girl but if you like a bit of shine to your lips, this is one to try.
I have yet to give both of these full run through but I am very excited about this introduction to YSL beauty and I cannot wait to delve further. I have been checking their site and already have my eye on their matte collection.
