When reaching for my make-up bag, I often think I'm getting very old!
Gone are the days of a dried out benefit mascara floating around somewhere within my tatty handbag. Nowadays my make-up only gets carried around in a beautiful Whistles case (birthday present from the older Sis). As I've been getting more grown up, so have the contents of my make-up bag.
Currently my favourite beauty brand is Yves Saint Laurent/YSL Beauty. I bought a Touche Eclat and Mascara set in the Summer Sales, and the mascara can be described as nothing less than spectacular. Glides on easily, doesn't clump and importantly, washes off easily too with a decent make-up remover... no need to scrub away at your eyes removing clumps of old mascara, and undoing all your hard work with anti-aging eye creams.
I've just invested in a YSL foundation too, so hopefully I will love this just as much as my mascara. From this swatch it looks a lot lighter than my hand, but it's really not (I think it's just a combination of my poor quality camera phone pics, and the fact that I swatched way more foundation that necessary as I'm used to Mac Studio Sculpt foundation which has a super thick texture). The YSL touche eclat foundation has a really light texture, but you can build up the coverage so it's a pretty versatile product.
I've got my eye on a few more YSL products, including a large number of lipsticks, in a plethora of shades... as well as the entire Forever Youth Liberator range!
