My obsession with YSL stems from within my teen years. I remember pouring over glossy editorial spreads and being completely and utterly mesmerised by the class, sophistication and elegance of the brand. Some childhood obsessions are simply phases, this one was not. To this day, I adore YSL and I believe their beauty products are some of the best in the market I have been inspired to write a post about the YSL products that I have been loving lately so here are my picks for the Best YSL Products
The Best YSL Products
YSL steals the show when it comes to fragrances and lip products and so basically, the best YSL products are based in these two categories. Although YSL does amazing foundations, skincare items and other things too, this post is about the best of the best, the products I use all the time and the ones I would buy for gifts, for myself and my favourite people! Plus, my makeup budget has basically been non-existent this year (I blame my upcoming wedding) so I haven’t had the chance to try the new launches like their All Hours foundation or their new liquid lipsticks.
The Best YSL Products | Fragrances
YSL Black Opium Collection: This YSL Black Opium fragrance began my YSL scent obsession and since the original release, the second and third editions have stolen my heart too. Black Opium is such a deliciously sweet, seductive and sophisticated scent and I rave about it to anyone and everyone who will listen. Honestly, most of my friends own a bottle of black opium because I am basically a walking, talking ambassador of the product (you can thank me later YSL haha).
YSL Mon Paris Fragrance: This fragrance is a newer release from YSL and it was love at first sniff. Inspired by Paris, this scent aspires to encapsulate the feeling of love. It is sweet, fruity and has a soft floral undertone and I am a romantic at heart so the vision before this fragrance earns it brownie points too. Like the Opium fragrance, Mon Paris has also released new versions too. Plus, the matching lotion is incredible too, in case you see a gift set with both, I highly recommend.
The Best YSL Products | Lip Products
YSL Rouge Volupte Lipsticks: These lipsticks are luxurious and completely and utterly gorgeous. I feel like a fool for denying the hype around this product. This is undoubtedly the YSL product that I had heard the most about but it took me so long to finally take the plunge and buy something from this range and I am so glad I did. The formula is comfortable to wear, it leaves my lips looking plump, smooth and glossy and the colours from this range are so wearable, even for those who shy away from typical lipsticks.
YSL Volupte Tint-in-Oil: The Volupte Tint-in-Oil is one of my favourite the best YSL products because This was one of the first high-end lip products I ever purchased and I have a guilty confession, I still have my original one. It holds sentimental value and I am a bit of a makeup hoarder. The formula is a blend of essential oils to hydrate lips and it smells like summer. Sweet, fruity and delicious! The doe foot is amazing, it saturates your lips in colour and makes it easy to apply with precision.
YSL Volupte Tint-in-Balm: I basically wear this product every, single day. It smells amazing, it looks gorgeous and is the perfect lip product for low maintenance days. Even if my day starts with a bold lip, it normally ends with me using this product. This hybrid product uses nourishing ingredients like macadamia and apricot butter to soothe lips with its balm centre, while the outer edge provides the real colour. I feel like it gives my lips a hit of hydration as well as a kiss of colour.
I would love to know your favourite YSL products or the Best YSL products (in your opinion).
