YSL Golden Gloss is one of those super Want and not need items. Does anyone really need a $30 lipgloss, of course not but want? Now thats a different story. YSL’s Golden Gloss comes in a clear container with golden trimming which gives this a lux appearance. Its applicator is a short brush style which always feels nicer and more expensive than doe foot applicators in my opinion. The gloss itself is not sticky at all, but is scently with some kind of sweet candy scent. I did enjoy the formula of the lipgloss a lot, however I did not enjoy the shade I purchased too much. Golden Peony is VERY sheer, and just looked like a glittery iridescent mess on bare lips. It looks nice over a lipstick but I prefer more opacity with my glosses.
The gloss is housed in a clear square plastic container with a mirror on the side of the tube. The creators really had on the go application in mind when designing this, as there is a button on the cap of the applicator that turns on a light on the inside of the wand making in the dark make up application possible. The packaging is so genius and so practical and I just love it. I love not needing to pull out a mirror to apply my lipgloss at a restaurant or on the train. The color of the gloss is perfect for me to attain that MLBB (my lips but better) look. The gloss itself is a bit heavy but I deal with it as I think the convenience of not needing to use a separate mirror its worth it.
