Y.S.L., You So Lovely


A few weeks ago, my life was turned upside-down when my bag miraculously disappeared in a certain city centre bar (honestly, I’d only had one bottle of beer). Amongst the missing items was my make-up bag, which, bearing in mind I also lost my passport, keys, wallet, and iPhone, sounds like a rather petty thing to fret over. But the sad truth is, a month without make-up (or using sub-standard back-up make-up) can wreak havoc on a girl’s self-esteem.

I was very happy, though, to collect a package from the post office yesterday which contained a myriad of girly goodies – new YSL foundation (that actually matches my skintone, hurrah) and Touche Eclat, Urban Decay eyeshadow and liquid liner, a Frost French make-up bag to keep it all in and cookies and a cream egg for good measure. As well from proving that I officially have the best mother in the world (seriously – thanks ma), I now feel a bit more confident taking on the world. And a bit of extra confidence is well-needed right now.

The single item I’ve been fawning over the most though is, typically, the one I needed the least. YSL lipstick in Rouge Pur Couture. I have several lipsticks at home, but never have I tried one that glides on like this baby. It gives a smooth, even colour in a vibrant red, comes in a very shiny case and, best of all, it even stayed on after I’d eaten Leo Burdocks fish and chips for dins. All round winner. You So Lovely, You Splendid Lipstick.
