Quality Over Quantity

DSCN0110I have recently been plagued with the stress of finding a new lipstick. You know what I’m talking about. Nothing seems to fit the bill. You love the packaging but hate the smell. The color is beautiful but it dries your lips out like crazy. I stumbled across the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick and I was immediately in love. The color was exactly what I wanted, a natural nude pink, moisturizing, the packaging was to die for. The list went on. The one caveat? The price…

I was having a hard time justifying spending $37 on a lipstick. Then I started reviewing the hell I had been through to discover the lipstick. I have extremely sensitive skin and was still suffering the side effects of a cheaper lipstick destroying my lips. The more I thought about it the more I started to talk myself into it. You see I don’t have an arsenal of lip products. This was going to be it. One lipstick (well and one red one, but that is TOTALLY different), and I started thinking about my own mantra of have less but make it luxe. So I might spend $37 on one amazing lipstick I use pretty much every day. Every time I pull that baby out of my bag I am going to be in love all over again and that is how I arrived at the conclusion, I need this in my life.
