Lunch Hour Treats: Yves Saint Laurent

YSL make up haul
Popping out on my lunch hour is an extremely dangerous exercise and I think my bank balance hates me! As it transpires, I would much rather have a quick makeover in YSL than buy myself something to eat....

Firstly, if you a regular reader of my blog (I'm not sure if I have any of those yet!) then you will know that I am a sucker for beautiful packaging and YSL nail luxury packaging every single time.

I didn't have my eye on anything in particular, I was just having a little browse but I asked the lady at the counter to recommend a handful of her current favourite products and she offered to test them all out on me. After a little makeover, I decided to go with Les Sahariennes Sun Kissed Blur Perfector in No.4 Fauve which is Touche Éclat Blur Perfector's bronzed sister and Rouge Volupte Lipstick in No. 9 Pink Caress.

Les Sahariennes is like nothing I have ever tried before- it is a bronzer that comes in a balm formula but when applied to the skin it feels like a silky powder. It is one of the best contour products I have ever tried, it is buildable so you can go for a natural look or apply a bit more if you prefer a little more definition. Sometimes I find that bronzers leave me with a harsh line no matter how much I blend but this blends in to the skin beautifully and there isn't a line in sight!

I adore YSL lipsticks but due to the hefty price tag, this is only the second one I have added to my collection. I currently own Rouge Volupte Shine in Fuchsia Intense which is a bold, bright colour. I was looking for a lipstick I could wear on a daily basis so opted for No. 9 Pink Caress. On first glance, it does look rather bold but when applied it is a light-medium berry shade that is actually quite neutral. I can't rave about these lipsticks enough, they come in a range of the most gorgeous colours and they are so moisturising on the lips.

 What's your favourite YSL lipstick shade? Have you tried Les Sahariennes?
