Yves Saint Laurent - Golden Gloss - Shimmering Lip Gloss - 17 Golden Cherry

I never wear lip gloss so coming across YSL's Golden Gloss / Shimmering Lip Gloss in 17 Golden Cherry was quite a novelty. I had been on the YSL beauty website and read that each tube "contains 0,2‰ of 24 carats" gold which intrigued me, I was also very taken with the packaging.
As with all glosses, I found that it was prone to bleeding. I used a clear liner which helped somewhat. The gold flecks were subtle but visible and effective and the scent (as with most YSL lip products at the moment) was fruity, modern and fresh. The consistency works well for building the colour - you can wear it sheer or layered for darker red lip impact!
