I don't know what has happened to me recently, I seem to have become really lucky when it comes to winning makeup, firstly I won a lot of benefit cosmetics makeup as part of their #rollerlash competition, then I entered the lovely Jen's Journal's giveaway to win a Yves Saint Laurent lip gloss- 101 IRIDESCENT. 

When my parcel arrived I was very surprised to find it packaged in a beautiful floral gift box (which will more than likely be used for makeup storage) which was filled with beautiful tissue paper and star conffeti, it looked amazing!

I am not really a fan of spending a lot on designer makeup as I think it works just as well as other high street brands, and I go through makeup that quickly that I would never be able to afford it, although I am a hoarder of MAC lipsticks! So when it came to this YSL lip gloss I couldn't wait to try it and see if it was worth the money.

I found that the angled and flexible brush applicator worked absolutely brilliantly and helped to apply the lip gloss precisely and evenly, the colour is also lovely and works as a beautiful nude, shimmery gloss. Although when it comes to making your lips more voluminous, I'm not sure whether I agree! 

What do you think? Leave me a comment below :)

  2. Wow, lucky you!
    This looks amazing, I've heard a lot of good things about YSL lip products.


  3. The packaging for YSL products are just gorgeous! I really like the look of this. Would be great to apply over a bright lipstick to give a glossy finish xx
