YSL.

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.

Not even you, Biebs.

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!

#Winning...oh, is that "not cool" anymore?

Hey Whipple! Moisturize this!

You know how the saying goes, “Wear the right moisturizer and you’ll have everyone eating out of the palm of your hand.”

Looks like someone overdid it.

Anyway, the perfect moisturizer smooths your face to a level of dewy deliciousness usually reserved for babies and male strippers.

The perfect moisturizer will never do you wrong.

The perfect moisturizer will be your best friend.

The perfect moisturizer WILL change your life.

I think I found the perfect moisturizer.

Not pictured: magic wand.

Meet MAC’s Studio Moisture Creme Hydrante, a super-rich moisturizer infused with a ton of delicious extracts like green tea and algae that cosmetics companies just LOVE to throw in there to make us feel all nourished and healthy (VEGAN agenda?!). I’ll let it slide this time because this stuff is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Do you know how OUT OF THIS WORLD this moisturizer is? It compelled a gay man to approach me in front of the Nordstrom at Main Place Mall in Santa Ana and tell me that my face “looked like it felt like butter.”  (And yes, I totally let him cop a feel.)

Anyway,  I really do love how my face feels after I slather this on. I feel like I’m literally feeding my dry, thirsty skin with the tastiest, most refreshing beverage ever. I’ve never used a moisturizer that was so thick and creamy and radiant and just makes my face feel dewy. And the best part? Since it’s so thick, I barely go through one tub a year. </endgushfest>

Oh, you’re still here? Thought you’d already dropped everything you were doing to get out to a MAC store or logged onto MAC Cosmetics online to get yourself a little tub of the magic!
