Good evening Little Ones! I’m back in business, I had to overcome serious anxiety and depression, just throwing it out there. But I’m ready to get back into blogging. I will write a MASSIVE blog post on why I was away for so long; but on the more positive side; here is a product review! I’ve already filmed a video on this; but I wanted to write about it as well, let’s me get back into the swing of writing again.
Without any further elaboration, let’s get on with it!
Golden bliss … YSL hit the nail on the head when designing this product. Walking around owning a gold pen has to be an achievement? Just me? OK.
It’s simple yet breathtaking, in this scenario little is more, and YSL rock that motto. Who needs over-accentuate; when packaging like this exists? The gold and black appearance is extremely iconic; when I come across a product that has this design, it’s evidently YSL; they’ve claimed the gold and black appearance; while keeping it innovative. I’ve never seen a beauty product this bold before … It’s courageous and creative. Additionally, I adore their emblem placed on the cap’ it’s sophisticated, and doesn’t shove it in your face. I know other brands like to CAPITALISE their logo, and shove it in peoples faces. But YSL position it in such a way where it’s delicate, without looking tacky.
On the other hand, in terms of functionality of the product, they again passed with flying colours, it’s compact so you can take it on the go without having to worry that it’s taking up too much space. Also, the fact that you click the bottom of the pen to obtain the product is genius; it makes me enjoy using the product so much more. The only criticism I have, is that you can’t tell how much product you have left, (as you can’t see); you have the play the guessing game. But apart from that, I can’t fault it.
Now for the main event. Does this product work? Keep on reading Little Ones. I purchased the shade number 1 luminous radiance, the colour match is perfect, isn’t too light or too dark. For me I want a concealer which is slightly lighter, if not the same shade as my skin, as I feel a really white concealer would make me look odd; (this has happened, and I didn’t like it). This concealer pen gives me the coverage that I want, without washing me out, and gives me a healthy finish.
If you want a heavy duty product that covers every blemish, this is NOT the product for you, I’m a very natural kinda girl, so this suits my needs to the ground. It glides on really easily with the fine tip applicator, and blends in effortlessly. In relation to staying power, it’s quite high, on an average day it lasts up to 8 hours, and that’s without me applying powder throughout the day; if I did then it would definitely last a lot longer.
On the other hand, I feel like this would suit people with dry skin, I say that because I have very dry skin and it doesn’t stick to my dry patches; (which shows that it doesn’t suck the oil out of my face). That being said, I have no idea how this would react to people with oily skin? It might not be the product for you, but what I can say is that in my oily spots (my chin), it stays put really well, but does break up eventually).
This wonder retails for £25, is that a lot of money? You decide … I’m not here to say what’s too dear, if you believe that this is the product for you, buy it, if not save your money and find something that you think benefits you without spending £25. For me personally, YES, I have extremely dry skin, to find something that not only matches my skin perfectly, but doesn’t cling to my dry areas is a God send. Will I repurchase this when it runs out? Hell yes! It’s worth my money, does what I need it to do, why wouldn’t I?
