YSL (Yves Saint Laurent) foundation & lipstick review!

Hello again to you all :) today I have a bit of an exciting post well it is for me anyway.
Just over a week ago my friend Amy from (www.makeupescape.blogspot.co.uk) sent me a message telling me about an offer at boots which is still running now. So the offer was that if you buy 2 Ysl products you receive 2000 points free to spend at boots! That's £20 so I thought I'll snap this offer up, so thankful for her making me aware of this offer.

I've been dying to try some ysl products for ages, especially the Le teint Touche ├ęclat foundation they released just after Christmas. I tried the 7 day free trial and knew instantly it was for me. My shade is BR10 Beige Rose, I know it's rather pale but what do you know my skins super pale. So far I love this foundation, it blends so well on my skin, I like to use my real techniques buffing brush to work it into my skin, I'd say this product is a light/medium build able coverage and works perfectly for almost every skin tone with there being a huge shade range. My skin is combination to normal and I would say this works well for my skin type, however I think it would be too moisturising for an oily skin and maybe would work for dry skin. This product is a little steep in price costing £29 however it is a premium product which I will use everyday, and I can justify spending a large amount of money on something that I've tested and works as good as it does for my skin.

The second product I purchased was the Ysl Rouge Volupte Lipstick in shade #13 peach passion. I've seen quite a few people talk about this shade and say how it's a gorgeous peach colour tha suits many skin tones. Although as I mentioned and your probably aware I'm rather pale but I decided to take the risk and snapped up this shade, definitely one that will get a lot of wear in spring/summer. This lipstick looks great on its own or with a gloss over the top. The texture is rather creamy and I find that it stays on my lips longer than what I anticipated.
Something I really love about this product is the smell and the sweet scented taste, something which I adore in a luxurious lip product. How gorgeous is this packaging though, its great for the way i store my lip products as they are lay down and the colour around the middle of the lipstick is the actual colour of the lipstick itself, the detailing is one of the main things that attracted me to this product. Again this product was a little steep and cost £24 from boots. You can also buy any of these products in Selfridges, Debenhams, John Lewis and house of Fraser.

I would love to know any of your thoughts on these products, or other ysl products that you have. Again, like always any recommendations to new products and blogs are widely appreciated. I love new things and I love to know what your thoughts are about products.

Love sophie xxx
