My First splurge of the year! The YLS Lipstick everyone is raving about! I couldn’t help but get it as I was browsing the isles in Sephora. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful packaging! It comes in a gold tube, and let’s face it, who doesn’t love gold?
I automatically felt very special as I opened the tube, it’s very fancy. The colors are really beautiful. I got the #16. Yup, they are named by numbers. Let’s just call it orangey peachy for now. It goes on very smooth and hydrates nicely. I wouldn’t wear these lipsticks on a regular basis, but more on special occasions.
Then there was the price tag. $34 big ones. I’m all about buying affordable products, so this was definitely a splurge. Would I buy another one? Maybe. Reason being is because I feel it’s a good quality product, and the packaging is amazing!
I’m not fond of products with huge ingredient list but nowadays it’s the norm. Didn’t find anything to hazardous in the ingredients, except for all the artificial colors…not loving that it has talc though.
