YSL Rouge pur Couture Glossy Stain

I feel a bit like Wayne right now… "It will be mine.  Oh yes.  It will be mine."

Only thing is, I am not:

a. Lusting after a guitar

and

b. Lusting after Tia Carrere

Go with your gut and remember who you're dealing with here - a makeup obsessed girl who stalks stores and asks to be placed on waiting lists for makeup.

I am presently:

The above gems dropped at my local YSL makeup counter today and as soon as I realised today is the 29th, I scurried over to swoon and drool.  All at the same time of course.  Yesterday I filled out a dream shopping cart at Sephora and actually attempted to purchase; but wouldn't you know it, Sephora doesn't ship directly to Australia.  Hello Sephora - have VISA, will buy!  See the proof below.

I even tried to add YSL shade #12, but it was sold out much to my dismay.  I am beginning to wonder if my purchase was ever meant to be, I should've taken it as a sign.  In the mean time I will test and ponder; should I ask P-Cakes to send a tube to me even after she scoffed at my latest purchase at Inglot?  Yes, I bought another palette at Inglot.  I apologize for the frenetic pace of this current entry and I am fully blaming it on the glass of wine I just consumed.

It's been about 4.5 hours since I tested YSL's shade #12 on my lips and I can still see a hint of colour and feel a bit of product on my lips. Perhaps a purchase is in the cards, but will I be willing to pay $50 Australian in order to satiate my latest obsession?

The Bagful breakdown:

Total amount for YSL's Rouge pur Couture Glossy Stain:

  • $50.00 AUS / $32.00 USD

Value for money spent (performance and quality):

  • Based solely on first impressions only - long lasting, light & non-sticky, but the glossy finish turns to a matte stain

Likelihood to purchase:

  • Which colour should I go with?  You decide!
