Makeup purchasing decisions should be made based on performance, price, value and need. However, sometimes those benchmarks get thrown out of the window because of something so pretty it makes you silently weep. I’ve made no secret of my love for YSL, a brand that add a touch of elegance and timeless sophistication to everything they do, and these new lipglosses are no exception. The YSL Gloss Volupte is a new range of 24 lipgloss shades, developed to suit every skintone and occasion; the rich texture provides an intensely glossy result that leave lips feeling plump and irresistible. Thanks to their patented precise applicator, application is a doddle and precision around the edge of your lips is guaranteed – the foam lip shaped tip lifts enough gloss to cover the lips, without it becoming messy.
I love everything about these glosses. The packaging is to die for, the colours are fabulous and the precision applicator makes applying the gloss a real experience; spending £21.00 on a lipgloss may be a little indulgent when you can grab one for a few quid in Superdrug, but you just don’t get the feeling you do when applying something truly luxurious. The glosses are delicately scented with something sweet, making them perfect for candy lovers too. The lighter shades add a touch of gloss and shimmer to the lips, while the darker and more bold colours provide a more wearable alternative to lipstick. I also love how so many of the shades contain a hint of golden shimmer that works to catch the light and help lips appear more plump, ensuring that these are great for wearing both night and day. If there’s one thing you hint at for Valentines Day, make it a YSL lipgloss!
The Gloss Volupte lipglosses are available in store and online priced £21.00 each.
