|On the lips and stain after 6 hours|
Nearly two months a go I was lucky enough to win an amazing give away from Anna whose blog is On The Dressing Table. She was giving away a YSL Glossy Stain of the winners choice. I couldn't believe it when Anna tweeted me to say I had won!
It took me a while to choose what colour to get because I wanted something bright but still wearable. I didn't go for red because until I get my teeth whitened I can't wear it. So after a lot of googling and swatching in store I opted for Rose Vinyl. It is quite a bright pink but at the same time still easy to wear. Normally I can't stand lip gloss but this doesn't have a hint of sticky-ness and the gloss lasts as long as 3-4 hours if not more. The stain it leaves behind isn't amazing so I imagine it works better with darker colours. I need to be more brave!
The shape of the wand makes application easy peasy although the consistency is quite watery so it can be a little tricky if you have too much on the wand. The only thing I really hate is the floral granny smell. It is so strong when you apply it and it smells far too artificial. Why YSL? Why?
Overall though I absolutely love this and I wear it all the time. It's definitely a luxury and I am very grateful to Anna for giving it to me. Her blog is fab for reviews of high end luxury products but be warned- it's dangerous for your bank balance!
Have you tried a YSL Glossy Stain?
