Although YSL lip products don’t always rank highly on my wishlist due to their cost, I must admit, they make the best Instagram props. As silly as it sounds, I’ll purchase the occasional popular shade or two to add to my growing shelf of Instagram props. So that’s only partially true, but in all honesty, I would…
The reason I added more colours to my collection has been because I recently decided to go back to my old favourite, the YSLVolupté Sheer Candy in #9 ($39, available here) and found myself unable to part from this lovely lip product due to its versatility of being both a lip balm and beautiful-looking colour for any season. One Sephora trip later, and before I knew it, I went home with three new YSL lip products.
Firstly, we’ve go the Volupte Tint-in-Oil ($39, available here) and for the life of me, I couldn’t even believe myself walking away with the shade called “#7 Crush Me Orange” that practically screams 1970’s colour. Fortunately, the colour is more forgiving when applied on the lips so it doesn’t come across as being too intimidating. But still, see the swatch below – you know that I had every right to be alarmed!
Next we’ve got a more wearable Gloss Volupté #202 Rose Jersey ($37, available here) which is actually a repurchase given how much I adored this colour but managed to lose it. I know. How does one lose a YSL lip product is beyond me! This was basically a repurchase, but still a great NC25 skintone colour regardless. It’s one of those colours you can wear in any season that will make you feel like a million bucks! Plus, it has a non-sticky formula that lasts!
I don’t know why, but I felt like the Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain – Plump Up ($38, available here) was really calling out my name. It’s called the “Plump Up” shade and for heaven’s sake, it better means it will make my lip colour look that much better. Of course, I had to get my hands on it because any time my lips can get some help, it is more than welcomed!
I definitely went out of my comfort zone and tried out colours that I would never try otherwise. I think despite how challenging it is to try something new, YSL’s lip product continues to exceed my expectations with an extensive range of colour selection, and glosses that are never sticky or highlighting the lines on the lips. Although I’m more of a lipstick girl, the 3 glosses I’ve picked up have been a great continuation of learning more about the brand and their lip products – Cara Deleveigne can sell me anything these days!
Now it’s your turn! Have you tried any YSL lip products?
