As I'm doing #EverydayOctober I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to bring back Friday Five - You know the drill one brand and five of my must have products..
Today I bring you YSL Beauty. I remember being about 16 and I was fascinated by bright lipstick and I ended up purchasing my very first one - a neon pick, number 49 by YSL, I actually still have it. Of course I never wear it but it's more nostalgia and I can't bring myself to part with it. Today YSL is one of my favourite luxury beauty brands and here's some of my picks from them.
Touché Eclat Foundation
This foundation is gorgeous and I still frequently wear it. There's something about the formula that's so lightweight but somehow the coverage is really buildable. I love the radiant finish this gives your skin it's, natural, realistic and makes a fantastic foundation for everyday wear.
If I'm honest I never feel like make up brands get nail polish right, you know what I mean? But YSL is one of the few brands that have it so spot on. This particular shade is one of my absolute favourites - it's such a beautiful, vibrant blue that reminds me of the Summers spent poolside. The brush fits your nails perfectly and I find this so chip resistant, it's such a winner for me!
Perfume in Supreme Bouquet
This is one of the most luxurious fragrances I own. It's only available at selected YSL counters but if you manage to smell this I can't urge you to enough. It's a beautiful floral based fragrances which is made deeper by rich, woody oud notes. It's a perfumes that I only bring out on special occasions, wearing it is such a treat and it's one of my favourite discoveries from the brand. I'm going to cheat just a little and say that my everyday fragrance is also by YSL and it's their Black Opium series, I have this in all variations and I adore it - it's sweet, sexy and the kind of scent I typically gravitate towards on a daily basis.
Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain Plump Up
I've mentioned this product in a specific lip plumping post before and I never thought I would love it as much as I do, so much so it's become part of my daily make up/skin care regime. I feel like this product is a hybrid between a gloss and a balm. I love the diamond shaped doe foot applicator, it allows you to place product so easily, this product gives your lips a slightly tingly sensation which I secretly love and it leaves your pout looking fuller. The best thing about this is that you can use it before lip products or as I do sometimes as a last step to an existing matte lip. Got to love products that emphasise what you already got and this lip plumper is fab for that.
Rouge Volute Shine
I remember buying my first RougeVolute lipstick back in the day when they came with a mini mirror on the top. For someone who's obsessed with pretty packaging I remember how much I adored these lipsticks and I still do. Luxurious packaging aside these lipsticks are beautiful on the lips. They're hydrating, smell like watermelon and have a perfect sheer finish. They are so effortless to wear and I simply adore the comforting feeling of these on my lips.
There you have it 5 of my must haves, of course I could have included many more products but these are my ultimate essentials.
Have any of you tried any of these? What's your favourite YSL product?
Lots of Love
