I finally did it! I got a YSL lipstick; she is beautiful non? I have been saving my Boots points since November last year so I could treat myself to one and finally managed to get to a store which stocks YSL a couple of weeks ago. After many a swatch and a slightly miffed off sales assistant huffing and puffing I decided to go for something subtle and something I could carry around with me everyday.
Number 11 Beige Instinct is a brown nude which is sheer and shiny; almost gloss like. The colour is very subtle but enough to make you look like you have colour on the lips. I find it is a very wearable colour but perhaps at is around the £25 mark I should have got something a little louder. There's always next time. I'm thinking a bright pink?
Formula wise I always find the more pigmented the colour the longer lasting it is which means Beige Instinct doesn't last as long as I thought it would. However I have no problem whipping out the beautiful packaging out of my make up bag. It's very moisturising and softens the lips well almost like a balm.
I do love the lipstick but it isn't my favourite lipstick ever. I think I prefer a more matte finish in my lipstick but this can definitely be in my top 3 glossy products.
