I cannot even begin to tell you just how much I LOVE ysl lipsticks! This multi finish lipstick goes on smoothly and instantly gives you a polished look. I love the 21 mauve attitude when I'm going for an everyday look with a little bit of edge. In case you were wondering (because I definitely was before I bought my first Yves Saint Laurent lipstick) IT IS SO WORTH THE MONEY. They're quality, they last, and they make any look special!
