YSL Golden Red (37) Golden Gloss

YSL Golden Red (37) Golden Gloss ($30.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a near-opaque holiday red with gold shimmer and a high gloss finish. It has a orange base but doesn’t pull to fiery on me at all. I love that despite the opaqueness of the color, it doesn’t bleed at all.

my thoughts on the formula: Fun fact: Golden Gloss really does contain gold–0.2% of 24 carat gold to be exact. It’s a shimmering non-sticky, moisturizing gloss that has a sweet mango scent. Typically, these wear four hours on me. Some are sheer, some are more opaque; usually, the darker shades are the ones that are more likely to be opaque.

Have you ever worn other orange-based reds? It is orange-based, so it may not look as complementary on a very cool undertone!

OOH~ I love gold glitter here! With orange-y red it stole my heart, dear!

And as always, it suits you so well!

One more thing, I love your light setting lately. It looks more REAL than before, IMO!

This shade is gorgeous! I’d love to have a red gloss, wish it didn’t have the gold shimmer in it, though… While the gold is lovely, I know I’d reserve it for evening and fancy events because of it. Maybe I’ll check out the Chanel dupe! πŸ™‚

WANT. MUST….HAVE….
Ugh, ysl glosses are my weakness and indulgence. They are my favorite glosses ever and I only have two. I think my collection is going to be growing in the near future.

omg i’m so excited! i wanted to get the wonder woman lipglass but then i thought no, plus LE things always break my heart. this looks so similar but with the a nicer, more even finish! MUST HAVE FOR ME thanks so much for posting

Hi Christine this is gorgeous on you. I usually don’t wearing bold glosses alone though without any lipsticks. What lipstick would you recommend that I wear with this? Thanks!
