YSL Friends & Family Haul + Swatches & Comparison Swatches

Monday, July 2, 2012
YSL had there Friends & Family sale last week and I decided to take advantage of the 20% off of any order $75 or more and order some things I had been wanting to try out.

I ended up ordering Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara in shade #1 High Density Black, Touche Eclat Radiant Touch in shade #4, and Rouge Volupte Lipstick in #27 Rose Paris

Rouge Volupte Lipstick in shade #27 Rose Paris

Touche Eclat #4, Rouge Volupte #27 Rose Paris

I immediately realized that this lipstick seemed pretty similar to some shades that I already own. 
See comparison swatches below...

 MAC Force of Love, MAC Watch Me Simmer, YSL #27, MAC Party Parrot

As you can see the shades above are pretty similar at a fraction of the cost. MAC lipsticks at $14.50 vs YSL lipstick at $34.00. I will try the YSL Rouge Volupte out and do a follow up review/update for you all. Want to see if the lipstick lives up to the hype. Hope you all enjoyed this post :)


Do you own any YSL products? What are your thoughts?

@Your Cosmetic Ally, Joanne YES!! I totally agree. I'm straying away from MAC's lip products for a while. They launch so many similar shades way too often. I have tons of lippies that really look the same when applied. All they're doing is changing the finish of them. I think the Heavenly Creature haul was the last of any big purchases from MAC, unless they launch something extremely unique. MAC needs to get it together lol
