My YSL Lipstick Collection

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.

YSL Volupté Liquid Colour Balm

It’s kind of funny that Valentine’s Day comes during the winter, because it’s one of the most challenging times to keep your lips looking super fresh. Even when you’re constantly moisturizing, you run the risk of having dry lips when you apply the wrong coloured product.

Enter YSL Beauté new Volupté Liquid Colour Balm, an amazing new product that leaves lips perfectly moisturized while adding a gorgeous tint that lasts through the day (and multiples coffees - we did the test!)

We got three gorgeous shades from the brand, all of which would look great on all skin tones. So go on, pucker up.

Diana Aldea

The name might be new to you, but Diana’s has been developing content for major brands for over a decade. She’s worked in advertising, ecommerce, broadcast TV and the public sector. That’s nice and all, but what does she know about lipstick? Aside from wearing it since the tender age of 11, she’s been a beauty contributor to WoahStyle since its inception, and actually pushed Nathalie to create the brand. She’s also real AF, so she ain’t gonna lie to you about products and how they work.
