Did my heart love til now? Forswear it, sight!
For I ne’er saw true beauty til this night.
Many incorrectly assume that Romeo uttered these words upon his first sight of Juliet, but these words were actually written by Shakespeare upon seeing this exact tube of YSL lipstick in “Le Rouge”. And I don’t blame him. Look how beautiful she is.
Tis the season to TREAT YO’SELF to some fine lipstick. I’ve always been the biggest fan of MAC, Chanel, Benefit, Clinique, et cetera, but now that every dollar counts, I’m a fan of stocking up on drugstore brands for certain items. No matter who you are, you do not need to be wearing $30 lipstick every day.
However, it’s a very worthwhile splurge. With YSL, you’re definitely paying for the pomp and circumstance that comes along with any of their products: fancy gold box, fancy gold case, fancy “YSL” impression on the lipstick, intoxicating rose smell. You’re also paying to be better than everyone else, obbbbbbbbbviously!
