YSL Yves Saint Laurent, Gloss Volupte Lip Gloss Review!

The new YSL Gloss Volupte lip gloss line is one word; Stunning. The packaging, feel, sent and lasting colour is amazing.

I picked up the shade 209 Smoking at work while waiting for a friend to purchase a lip gloss herself, this was an impulse buy but it is one that certainly is worth the money.

The idea with 3 of the lip glosses are to use them as topcoats to change the look of your lips or lipstick, the others in the collection you can use as stand alone lip glosses with gold shimmers or use them to enhance your lipsticks.

There are 23 shades in the collection.

 

 

Price: RRP £21.

 

Time Trailed: 2 days, one while out in the night and throughout the following day.

W7 Brow Bar Review!

I’ve wanted to try W7 makeup for a while as I’ve heard their blushes are amazing dupes for Benefits Box blushes, although all I can usually find is their nail varnishes which I am a massive fan of.

Time trial; 2 weeks

Price paid ; £2.99
