YSL Beauty Hamper & Giveaway...Sunday, March 01, 2015
YSL make up is always something that I have stared longingly at when in department stores. Although I have got the odd lipstick here and there from the brand, I've always wanted to try more from the luxury make up house. However today, I have got a few products into my collection, and I'm going to tell you how you can get the chance to win your own too. A few weeks ago, Jen's Journal which is a beauty website set up by insurance company Zenith Insurance in an attempt to create beauty content for young women, got in touch to tell me about their website and the exciting competitions they will be running on their website. This month's competition is to win an exclusive YSL beauty hamper. Consisting of nine products, and worth £150, it's a great way to win the chance to try some of YSL's most coveted products.
I've been trying out the products from the hamper courtesy of Jen's Journal, and I will tell you now that you will all love them. From the classics such as the Touche Eclat which is perfect for highlighting and removing all evidence of the bad night's sleep you had last night, to the False Lash Effect mascara which creates dramatic lashes. So the hamper consists of; False lash effect mascara, travel size False lash effect mascara, travel size Black waterproof eyeliner pencil, Touche Éclat, Forever Youth Serum,City Drive 4 wet and dry eye shadow palette, Iridescent 101 Extreme shine lip gloss, Black Opium perfume, then finally to put it all in a black YSL make up bag.
My favourites from the hamper have to include, the False Lash Effect mascara which gives me long, black lashes, which obviously compliments my smokey eye perfectly. I also love the Touché Éclat highlighter too, I've been using this after concealer on my under eye circles and also down my nose when contouring. Also word on the street is that this is one of Eleanor Calder's favourite products so naturally this makes me like it even more. The eyeshadow palette I was expecting to be one of my favourites, however I found the lighter colours to not be as pigmented as I hoped. However the palette which consists of neutral colours in the form of; a taupe shimmery brown, a warm bronze brown, a navy steel grey and a champagne pearl colour is still very pretty and creates a smokey eye suitable for day or night
Here I used all the products from the hamper to create this look :)
The giveaway launches today, which you can find here. Be sure to enter as it's such a good prize and I knew a lot of you would like to win it :) and to also check back every month to see what other exciting giveaways are happening on the site.
All of the products are so nice and it would be a lovely prize to win, and the products would be very welcome in your collection, that's for sure. This has kick started my YSL obsession though and I now have a hankering to dabble in their foundations now too! Do you have a favourite YSL product?
