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