My collection of YSL lipsticks
I love makeup a lot and 1 of my favorite things to collect is lipstick. Although I may have 10 pink lipsticks, they are different shades of pink! Putting on lipstick transforms your look, I love pairing Red lipstick with just a simple winged eyeliner and it makes me feel complete.
I happen to chance upon YSL beauty after watching one of favorite youtube beauty guru talked about her favorite YSL cosmetics. Then came the popular series “He who came from the Stars” – The lead actress was wearing a very nice coral shade (YSL 52) which sold out immediately. It took me quite a while to get my hands on the lipstick.
YSL beauty has very beautiful packaging. Their lipsticks are very moisturizing and easy to apply on, although they do not last very long. Generally I would need to touch them up after every meal (which I do not do so as I am quite lazy).
These are the YSL lipstick colors that I own – there are 2 more which I have yet to open.
My favourite color is Volupte Shine no. 9. This was the first lipstick I have gotten from YSL. I think this was the color the Youtuber bought and I was dead set to get the same color (easily influenced! :P). I kinda remember the color was Lingerie Pink (Can’t remember the exact name though) but apparently the lady at YSL only remember the code number of the lipstick.
Volupte Shine no 8 is my second favorite. Peggy (MUA at YSL) used this on me for my birthday makeover. I chose a simple long lasting makeup look because I was attending a concert and this was the lipstick color she chose for me. Had wanted to buy it after my makeover but the product was out of stock. Eventually bestie got this for me for either my birthday/ Christmas.
Additionally, the Volupte lipsticks can be transform into rings after you have finished them up. I have post the tutorial on this before, you can click here to see it
I can’t remember the exact reason why I got the other 2 colors (I guess it is because the packaging and colors was nice).
Wide range of colors
A lot of series of their lipstick to choose from
Moisturizing on dry lips
Does not have any overpowering scent
Not long lasting
Although the lipsticks are costly, don’t forget YSL is considered a high end range makeup. You can make use of 10% Taka sale, or Tangs 12% member rebate to have some savings when you make any purchase. YSL lipstick is a staple in my makeup routine and is usually my most reached for lipstick when I am on stay-cation, traveling as their lipsticks double up like a lip balm as it is moisturizing and colors complements my skin-tone.
What is your favorite YSL lipstick? I know they have released a tint-in balm lipstick which helps create the popular gradient look. The color range is incredible and if you happen to pop into any YSL store, do try out their lipsticks!

I enjoy watching beauty videos on Youtube. It helped me to learn the basis on makeup.
I am a thrill seeker, and I enjoy roller coaster rides. I love history and would try to visit the museums once in a while.
In my free time, I enjoy photography (not professionally), scrapbooking, playing with make up.
