YSL Lipstick…amazing formula that glides on smoothy!

Oh my goodness, can the packaging of these things be any more beautiful?

In the past, it was a known fact that a fashion faux pas was mixing gold and silver together.  Yves Saint Laurent clearly begs to differ with the tube packaging of some of their lipsticks.  To be quite frank, I think they have nailed this trend spot on.  This once frowned upon practice of mixing gold and silver is actually considered haute fashion right now.

This will be a tale of why sometimes it’s ok to push the boundaries of colour combinations and Yves Saint Lauren has never been afraid to do so:)

I had heard amazing things about YSL’s Volupte Shine & Volupte Sheer Lipsticks from my girlfriends!  There were so many dazzling colours to chose from but my sisters and I managed to narrow it down to three colours: Lingerie pink, Nude beige and a Rouge Volupte Shine #28.  But they were all sold out at The Bay sale!  Yes, you can find these lovelies at Hudson’s Bay : )  We managed to nail down our second choices of Volupte Sheer Candy and Rouge Volupte shine #21.  Our online orders went through…yay!  The colours are oh so beautiful in person!

YSL lipsticks come in the most beautiful shades and glide on beautifully

We caught only the tail end of the sale just in time.  The sale was ending at midnight and we didn’t start our order until around 11 pm.  It was a girls’ sleepover night at my place and we all had forgotten about the sale until it was almost too late!  We were out Christmas shopping and with the new extended hours, we didn’t even realize how late we were out;)  Thanks Tiff, for all your help!

These beauties can also be purchased at Holt Renfrew and Sephora too.

A creamy formula that glides on smoothly, was what everyone was raving about!  And the prettiest scent to boot!  All the reviews were completely accurate and now I can be added to the list of adoring fans.

I came home to this in my mail box after a lovely brunch with some gfs. I love getting new parcels in the mail!  Only took two days to get to me!

Here is what’s currently on sale in the cosmetics department at The Bay:

Naked Palette – Urban Decay Basics

This beautiful little Naked Basics palette was a part of an early Christmas gift from a few of my fav gals in my life.  So far I’m loving the neutrals on my eye lids.  The colours are subtle which are perfect for work, but add some “crave” to the mix, and you can create the smoky eye for an evening of fun.   Bonus: it fits into the tiniest of clutches…perfect for any last minute touch ups at weddings or any big event!

Compact version of the NAKED palette.  As Sephora puts it, “a matte palette by Urban Decay, featuring six gorgeously Naked neutrals—including four never-before-seen shades.”

Stay tuned for the unboxing of the Naked Urban Decay Smokey palette.  I’m not very good at waiting until Christmas to open some of my gifts so even though I know this palette is under my tree, I’ll wait until after Christmas to experiment with it 😉  I’ll make sure to take photos of the “sultry, smoky, neutrals” on my eyelids!
