YSL: I Love YOU!

Happy Monday everyone. Only 4 days until the weekend! Today I wanted to share my new favorite beauty brand with you: Yves Saint Laurent. I currently own 3 YSL beauty products…

{one}: It all started with the concealer: Touche Eclat

How I use this product: each morning, I get up and immediately wash my face. (I try to do this faithfully) After moisturizing, I apply this concealer/highlighter underneath my eyes. Wait around 5 minutes before continuing. I promise you will notice a difference in your under eye bags…they will disappear and help your eyes look brighter.

Why I love this product: you get a lot for your money. I have been using the same bottle for around 6 months, and it’s still going strong. It goes on creamy, not streaky & lasts the entire day.

{two}: Next, I was sent the YSL Faux Cils Mascara from Influenster.

How I use this product: I apply one coat of this mascara for everyday wear. If I’m going out or heading to work, I will apply two or three coats. Be sure to let each coat dry completely before adding another one.

Why I love this product: this #YSLMascara goes on super smooth. I am not a fan of clumps, but have no fear, because this mascara is not clumpy at all. It lasts the entire day until I have to take it off with eye makeup remover. Also, it is great if you live somewhere humid or rainy, because it will not smear or run.

{three}: I then chose to purchase this: Glossy Stain

How I use this product: this glossy stain is the perfect color for me. I am NOT a bright red lipstick kind of girl. Trust me, I have tried. When you first put on this gloss, it may look invisible. Don’t worry, after a couple of minutes, you will notice your lips look fuller (BUT not huge) and have a deeper tint which is perfect for us non-red lipstick wearers. I have the color 01 “Nude Provocateur.” This product actually won “Best Lip Stain” from Allure in 2013.

Why I love this product: if there is one thing that my mom taught me, it’s that life is too short for sticky lip gloss. I will not wear it. That’s why I love this gloss, because it is not the least bit sticky. The key is though that even though it’s not sticky, it still lasts a very long time. I really never have to reapply unless I just want to.

A quick note that I feel like I must say: I have always been a sucker for great packaging. I tend to buy things on a whim if the packaging/bottle is cute. While this packaging is totally chic, the products actually work great for me & I think they will for you, too.

I do want to say, these products are quite expensive. I totally understand that it may not be feasible to always spend money like this & if that’s not you, I get it. But for those of you looking to try out some new beauty products (say, spend a gift card, you can’t go wrong with YSL).

I would also like to remind that I recommend purchasing these products through Nordstrom. Several reasons why: FREE shipping every single time, price matching, and incredible customer service. I have been pleased with Nordstrom every time I have ever called, tweeted, or contacted them. I really appreciate companies who appreciate me!

So seriously YSL, I love YOU. Like, a lot.

Here’s my current YSL wish list: lip oil, Black Opium perfumeeyeshadow palette, & lipstick (for when I’m feeling gutsy!)

      I know! Thankfully, I like to save up my gift cards & get some great products that I don’t buy on an everyday basis :)

      Thanks for reading & commenting girl!
