As far as designers go, I consider Saint Laurent to be one of my faves. Their lipsticks are quality, long lasting with excellent pigmentation but surprisingly, it's their lipglosses that I favour. (I say surprisingly because I normally favour lipstick.)
I'm convinced that out of all of the glosses that I've ever tried, YSL has some of the better ones out there. The formula stays on even after drinking a glass of water and having a light snack. It does need to be touched up after having a plate of pasta but honestly, I don't mind.
Best of all the formula is buildable so you get the type of intensity you want from your gloss - one swipe for a sheer wash of colour or a little more for a vivid hue.
I don't even think the packaging needs any mention because it's just so cool and sophisticated, exactly what you'd expect from Saint Laurent.
YSL FAVES - my small black LouLou bowling bag and wallet on a string crossbody bag. I happen to get the latter on my first trip to New York. It was an unplanned purchase and I had gone in looking for something special to remember the trip by.
Both bags seem to be limited edition as they’re no longer available for sale, though I’m sure if you look hard enough, you can find one secondhand.
