Magpie MakeUp Collection || YSL Edition


Hello my little Magpies,

As you may have noticed I’ve become a small bit obsessed with lip products. So much so that I finally treated myself to some high end ones.

Where I live (Jersey CI) there is a department store called De Gruchy who, at the time, had a YSL stand. I was pottering about the make-up department and spotted a crowd around the “discount” table. Sure I had to pop over and have a nosey.

What I found was a delight! YSL make-up on discount, eeee. I was a very excited and a bit overwhelmed. Like all discount areas it was messy, well no that’s not 100% true, it was organised as much as a discount table could be. Anyway I’m getting off topic. There was lots of make-up and skincare, at the time I didn’t realise, but they were going through some changes and were actually in the process of getting rid of the YSL concession.

Long story short I picked up a number of items. I was super keen to get a one of the Rouge Volupté Shine. I had no idea what colour I wanted, but I walked away with 47 Beige Blouse. I thought I’d seen Anna Secona mention this one so I blindly bought it!

For as long as I can remember I’ve always wanted YSL things. They are just so lux in my eyes, so I decided the discounted prices couldn’t be missed! I was also going through a bit of a tough time so shopping seemed to be the answer. I just couldn’t stop myself, if it seemed like a good deal, I was getting it!


Over time I’ve built up quite a collection. Palettes, lippies, nail varnish and skincare. I think let’s start with nail varnish. I’ ve got some very unique ones I have to say.

I love the colours they bring out but I think if I’m buying any full price I think I’ll stick with really wearable colours like reds and browns. I would also consider investing in the top coat as the one I have transfers a lot.
