Duty Free Goodies

I recently went to Egypt for a few days and being a devout lipstick lover and YSL admirer I couldn't leave Gatwick Duty Free with at least one product. In fact I got two! I feel quite proud of myself that I refrained from buying everything. My mother had to stop me buying another two lipsticks from Chanel lol. 

Rouge Pur Couture in 17 Rose Dahlia & Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres in 13 Rose Tempura

Isn't YSL packaging just divine?! I have a weakness for gold and YSL's packaging just tick all boxes for me. First off, I want to start off by saying that although I really want to adore the YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick, the consistency of it doesn't win me over. But Rouge Pur Couture, I love Rouge Pur Couture. Although it's my first one, it definitely won't be the last! I've always wanted the YSL Glossy Stain as soon as I heard of it but the price always prolonged my purchase. I'm a big fan of lip stains as they are long wearing and means that if I smooch The Boy then it won't transfer onto him! So it was only practical for me to get the Glossy Stain ;)

These are definitely going to be out on my make up table on display. Just looking at them makes my heart beats faster and brings a smile to my face. 

Being the YSL lover that I am, I couldn't resist including one of my prized possesions...

On a side note, I cannot believe how much the Arty ring has gone up in price since I bought it, which is about nearly 2 years ago! What an investment! Who needs stocks and shares when you can invest in an Arty ring ;) 

And here's a snippet of me basking in the sun in Egypt! 

I miss it already!

Is there any YSL products you love?


  1. I don't really use YSL. I am more a Chanel and Mac-Girl :)
    But the lipstick looks great!!

    1. ooo I love Chanel and Mac too! I would buy much more stuff from Chanel if it wasn't so expensive :( x
