Simply put: I love YSL! Makeup, perfume, handbags and SHOES (omg, the shoes!) - I have yet to own any clothing from the brand but hope to some day. My main YSL stash is undoubtedly the makeup line. If you haven't had the pleasure, I highly recommend giving their lip products a try. Rouge Pur Couture, Rouge Volupté, Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain, Volupté Tint-In-Oil, Kiss & Blush... The list goes on and on! All feel so luxurious and smooth, perfectly velvety, on the lips! Yes, anything YSL will be an investment. But in my opinion they truly hold their worth. The quality is there and I have no doubt these products will stand the test of time. Another favorite is the Radiant Pressed Powder. Pricey, but AMAZING! I have dry skin and most powders can cling to the tiniest dry patch or come off looking very cakey. Not the case with Radiant Pressed Powder. It is like silk! Gives good coverage, won't settle into fine lines and looks so natural! One last suggestion: Black Opium! My fave scent atm!

Black Opium is a dream fragrance. Not only is the bottle chic & stunning, but the scent inside is sexy & comfortable, not cloying or headache-inducing. The fragrance is soft & alluring; sensual but modern. This scent is warm, so it is best worn in cooler seasons or saved for date night. The fragrance lasts quite a while but isn't overbearing. I was fortunate enough to purchase during the holidays when a gift set was available. In the set I purchased I received a full sized bottle of the perfume & a portable rollerball as well. The amazing flacon gets a front row seat in my fragrance collection as I reach for it often. The rollerball is a frequent on holiday or in my purse. I think it's refillable as well. Gorgeous scent that evokes sensuality & extravagance. I will definitely repurchase a full sized bottle when mine runs out.

YSL brand excels in every product they make, weather its makeup, skincare, purses, shoes. I have used a few primers, and foundations from YSL, and they are AMAZING. Super soft, truly like any other product Ive seen. They are expensive, but what else do you expect from a high end designer brand! You do get your moneys worth, because there products are amazing. I have a few Purses from YSL also, the tassle bag, Matelasse, Pebble bag. Really amazing high quality bags. I use my Matelasse bag every day, and not even one thread has come loose.

I recently purchased the YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils. I was so excited to try this after reading about it, and when I did the results were amazing. My lashes were voluminous, thick and very stunning. I was so excited when I saw the results. However, it was short lived. Later in the day I was able to look in the mirror. I had huge raccoon eyes and needed to try and fix them. It would not budge from under my eyes and I eventually had to use a little soap from work to get the smudges out from under my eyes. I ended up returning the product.

Ysl has such amazing luxury looks it's incredibly gorgeous. Although the they are way out of my budget. The makeup is amazing but unfortunately I'm not a fan of their lip collections. Only because of that perfume taste and smell that does not fit for every lips. Most woman love that feeling but too me if it's too perfume-ish ... It's what makes it least favorite on my list. The one thing I'm curious about is the exalt pens. I heard so many reviews I would love to try but I believe ysl is the most elegant luxury brand I've seen.

I am in love w YSL fragrance
Black Opium! It's a beautiful smelling perfume. It is in my opinion a gourmand fragrance w great lasting power. I guess this is where I would give you all kinds of top notes and middle notes etc. I just know it smells delicious kinda vanilla patchouli maybe smokey. I get tons of compliments and I mean wherever I go. I have the bottle and the rollerball for my handbag. I picked up mine at Sephora and the gal told me it was one of their best sellers .
Not heavy! Not overly sweet! Just a yummy scent!!!

YSL is iconic for a reason - because they make beautiful products that are efficient and effective.
I find that I go to old favorites from YSL over other brands - the iconic YSL babydoll mascara is one that I always have and use very frequently. However, I also find new products they create that are amazing. I'm currently in love with the YSL Touche Eclait Neutralizers - I've tried many, many other brands of color correctors, and the YSL Touche Eclait is by far the best.

I own many of their lipsticks and a few other cosmetic items. They are one of my favorite brand as everything I own is top notch quality, from the packaging to the product itself. The cosmetics are all very pigmented and easy to blend, apply, build, ect. My favorite product from them is their Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks...every color is beautiful and they apply like a dream! I cannot say enough about this brand and I highly recommend them. Splurge away! ;)
