Hi Girlies, I put a picture up on facebook of this Yves Saint Laurent lipstick (€31.50) I wore yesterday and got such a great response from it that I decided to natter about it here on the aul blog! I won the lipstick in shade Rose Paris well over a year ago and when I got it thought I would never EVER be able to pull it off so it sat looking pretty with the rest of my lipstick...until now!
So what made me take the plunge and pucker up with this Bright pink with coral undertones lipstick?! Well ladies, I bought the dress below on sale in Dunnes Stores for just €12 reduced from €35 and teamed it up with a turquoise beaded necklace that I bought in Portugal last year for a whopping €3. I usually always wimp out and wear a nude lipstick or something that won't look too messy if it smudges while eating or drinking. I'm not one for running to the ladies every few minutes to fix my make-up, I actually rarely bring make-up out with me. However, yesterday with such a bright outfit on I felt like today was the day to be daring and as soon as I applied the lipstick in shade Rose Paris it was a match made in heaven!
I could not get over how creamy and soft the lipstick felt as I applied it and WOW the colour pay off is amazing. Apart from the Rimmel Apocalips lip lacquers I don't think I have ever used a lipstick so pigmented in all my days! The consistency is so creamy that I was sure it was not going to be long lasting but fortunately for me I was wrong and it lasted far longer than I had expected. And get this, it's SPF 15 too.
Check out the gold luxurious packaging too, it's super classy and sophisticated. I usually hide or re-apply my lipstick super fast to avoid people looking at me but with the packaging of this award winning lipstick I had no hesitations at all re-applying my make-up in public. I especially like how the tube has the corresponding colour shade to the lipstick.
Now I have to admit paying over €30 for a lipstick is something I have ever done before. If I win the lotto or become super rich from one of my crazy ideas presented on Dragons Den I would gladly re-purchase this lipstick in many different shades but until then I will enjoy this little beauty until it hits pan!
