The Spring Season: YSL Golden Peony (#10) Golden Gloss

YSL Golden Peony (#10) Golden Gloss ($30.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a sheer clear base with gold and iridescent lilac shimmer suspended in it. On my lips, it enhances the rosy of my natural lip color just a tad while adding a ridiculous amount of bling-bling shimmer to it. You can detect an almost silver-ish lilac, and golden shimmer. Fun fact: Golden Glosses contain 0.2% of 24kt gold. What’s nice about YSL Golden Glosses is they’re non-sticky, moisturizing, and have a mango-scent. Unlike a lot of glosses, the applicator is also a brush rather than a doe-foot applicator, which may or may not be your favorite. (Luckily, I am indifferent and like both!)

Is this the right gloss for you? Would you wear it?

The Spring Season is a series of posts featuring my favorite soft beige, coral, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for the first blossom of spring — that runs through March 2010.

    this is the only YSL Golden Gloss I own. It looks especially pretty over Rouge d’Armani #506. I can certainly see more of these(and Armani Rouge d’s) in my future.

  2. Argh, so pretty! I’ve been trying to stop buying glosses until I use up some of the ones I already have! This is so tempting. And I wish Sephora in Vancouver would carry the YSL products, I personally hate having to go to make up counters.

    This is funny I just bought this a week before you posted. I love this stuff. I never thought I would buy any lip product that was $30 but to be honest 4 years ago I never thought I would buy any lip product that was over $10. I guess the more you look at this stuff the more it doesn’t seem so bad. When you go up in price by just a few dollars at a time. Who knows I may be buying that Guerlain l/s pretty soon too lol.

      I also wanted to say that I now wear this over every l/s I own. I have to hide it from my kids because I’m still embarrassed that I spent that much and am now being very stingy. It does smell great and it does not dry out my lips at all!

    • LOL! Yes, I know exactly what you mean, Torie! Four years ago, the idea of paying $14 for a MAC lipstick was like, “What? REALLY?”
