Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all well! Wow, still seriously cannot believe how amazing the weather has been lately! I am super excited as i am off to an event in London tomorrow with Panasonic and then off to the 'Love Box' festival! It's my first festival of the year so really looking forward to that, meeting some of the other blogger girlies and having a lush day out in London!
Today i thought i would post on one of my favourite lip products of the moment. As you can see from the title it is a 'YSL Glossy Stain in Rose Pastelle which is shade #18. It was my first ever YSL Glossy Stain and my really good friend 'India' from 'The Jewel Beauty' gifted it to me in our Christmas Beauty Boxes last year. It has been a great product to use in this heat as it is a Glossy Stain it has serious staying power.
Rose Pastelle is a beautiful milky pink shade which i absolutely adore. As you all may know by now i am obsessed with pink lip combinations and this is definitely up there in my top favourites. YSL offer some of the most beautiful lip products which i might add are stunningly packaged...every time i walk past a counter it is almost impossible not to stop and take a peek through all the luscious goodies! The Glossy Stains are another fabulous product that YSL are now offering and after trying this shade i cannot wait to branch out and try others within the collection.
With the more light shades in any type of Glossy Stain i find that you need a good few layers to see the lip products full potential shine through. I usually apply a light layer first, wait for it to dry and then apply another coat and so on depending on how i want the intensity to be. It works fabulous that way but you can also apply it over a favoured lipstick also for an umph to your lips. In the past i have loved applying Rose Pastelle over 'MAC Creme Cup' and 'YSL Lingerie Pink #7'.
Like i said earlier, the packaging is absolutely stunning, the wand is super easy to use and apply the product and i adore the clear panel along the packaging where the shade peaks through...makes it so much easier when picking a lip product when rummaging through makeup collections. The formulation has a wonderful fruity scent to it much like most of the YSL makeup products which i absolutely love, it is non sticky, feels extremely smooth and soft on the lips and does not leave the lips dried out or chapped.
Overall, i feel it is a lovely product to use when you are on the go or to use on a daily basis. It is available in 29 shades which can be purchased from YSL themselves, Debenhams, Selfridges and so on. I love how the Glossy Stains provide ultimate shine, wear and colour. The exclusive applicator makes application so much easier and precise. It's the perfect high shine lip product!
Hope you all enjoyed this YSL Glossy Stain post! I would love to know your thoughts on them and if you have tried any out yourself. Also, i would love to know what your favourite lip product of the moment is.
