I’m not the type of person to spend a ton of money on makeup. Skincare, yes, I will do it (but rather guiltily). Makeup? I don’t normally splurge that often. Sure, I love the expensive brands and I do own a $50 foundation, but it’s not something I do on the regular. And there’s just something so thrilling about finding a go-to drugstore or affordable makeup option that’s just as good as the pricey versions.
I will say, though, that there are a few expensive makeup products that I don’t mind dropping money on because they’re worth it. And they make me feel so luxe. One of those is a YSL lipstick. Do these lipsticks cost almost $40? Yes. But do they make me feel rich? Also yes.
YSL has different lipstick options, from matte versions, to ones with a satin finish, and even an amazing lip stain. They’re all pretty great, but my go-to is the Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick Balm. I love that it’s super hydrating and leaves just the right amount of shine. Whenever I wear it, I get a ton of compliments and I feel a little fancier because I’m wearing a designer product on my lips. Hey, if I can’t afford a closet full of YSL clothes and accessories just yet, at least I have the iconic brand’s makeup on my vanity.
