Not as great at the samples in magazines. But it is very indulgent and I do like it. However I warn you against buying the lotion. The spray and shower gel, fine, but the lotion is awful! It doesn't smell like the actual perfume at all and is downright hideous.

W-O-W. This is the perfect foundation. It is so silky smooth, much like the oil free ysl primer that comes in a similar tube. I usually don't test out foundation samples, but this my friends was an amazing find. I currently have Matt Lumiere from Chanel and settled with it-- it is rather visible and blotchy.
I cannot believe how amazing this ysl one is. NO blotchyness, NO visibility and …

So, I bought this knowing I thought the outside was hideous, and close up, it is. But I wouldn't mind wearing it around my neck. The red lippie inside is wonderful! Red lipstick isn't for everyone and finding your right shade is hard- and this is mine! The other color is amazing too. My mom got unusally excited about my lip color when I was wearing the 2nd one. I hope the two colors …Read more

This is one of my favorite necklaces. It works great with summer dresses and is fun and chic. If you don't like the M charm, it has a key chain mechanism so it is simple to take off (and not cut off like I read on another webside). Downsides- it's a bit heavy and the perfume solid is hard to administer.

This is a beyond chic little jewel that opens to reveal a golden substance that can be used on eyes, lips or cheeks. I think it's ok for cheeks, but I usually only use it on eyes. Just to let you know, I adore gold makeup, so this was a hit for me. I don't know about wearing it around the neck or hand bag, it seems a little too hard to do ( the ribbon would unfortunately get squished …Read more

Just watching the powder cut but twisting is enough for me. I love the little brush they give with it. It is representative of ysl brushes and is smooth- definitely a keeper even after the powder is gone. The brush is particularly nice because the shape allows you to put the powder easily under your eyes and on the sides of your nose etc. I refrain from putting this powder on the top of my nose …Read more

I thought I'd seen all the pinks out there. This was a wonderful surprise! To start off, the canister is very chic- much more so than I'd imagined from pictures. It has a lot of sparkles, but they're not too big and it actually ends up being very classy. It has great staying power and is very simple to put on- without all the worrying and fuss. This is a great addition to my …Read more

wow. I adore this pencil. I can make a very thin line with it and easily do a winged eye without messing up (which I always do at least once with every other brand). I have this in number 3 which is is very dark blue. Actually, I thought at first it was a low intensity black. Color is easily administered (yet isn't messy) and having a smudger is handy!
