- YSL Gloss Volupté: 208 Fauve
Despite entering giveaways fairly frequently, I tend to forget about them straight afterwards as I never expect to win. Therefore, when Kimmy from Beauty Isles announced that I was the winner of her recent Instagram giveaway, I was over the moon! The prize was a YSL Gloss Volupté and Kimmy kindly let me choose which shade I'd like to receive. I didn't know much about this product beforehand, so I took to the internet to do some research. I discovered that there are three different finishes - Golden (contains specks), Iridescent (contains smaller flecks of shimmer) and Pure (tinted & creamy). Remaining unsure whether shimmery glosses are my thing, I decided on Pure. After narrowing the formula down, I then had a look at some swatches of the shades in this finish. This is when #208 Fauve stood out to me as I feel reds suit me more than pinks, together with deep reds being one of my favourite shades to wear. Like many other lip glosses, this contains a doe foot applicator, however, this YSL one has a unique touch as it's in the shape of a little pout! Little things like this really make a product stand out from the rest and makes them a lot more memorable. Once applied, this gloss looks a lot less bold than it does in the tube. It's the perfect shade to perk up your complexion and provides the perfect amount of shine whilst still remaining creamy. Retailing at £21 each, these glosses are well worth the price tag! What do you think of this YSL Gloss? Let me know in the comments!
