A high shine lip gloss with real 24-carat-gold flecks. Yves Saint Laurent GOLDEN GLOSS Shimmering Lip Gloss is the ultimate in beauty luxury. This gloss forms a mirror-effect on the lips with sparkling gold mother-of-pearl.
Yves Saint Laurent’s Golden Gloss comes in over 20 shades. The newest shade–White Gold Topaz–is a bright, purple fuchsia with silver and pink shimmer and is reviewed, below.
YSL’s Golden Gloss comes in a clear, plastic, rectangular tube. The gloss also has a very short, brush applicator.
The first thing I notice about this gloss is its very strong, sweet smell. The scent lingers even after application, and it bothered me while I was wearing the gloss.
White Gold Topaz is a bright, shimmering shade. You can apply a thin layer for a translucent finish or apply another layer for a stronger purple tint and stronger pink sparkle.
The gloss isn’t sticky but also has medium thickness. Another thing that bothered me about this color is that I could feel the gritty shimmer particles.
The gloss wore an average amount of time–about two (2) to three (3) hours before needing re-application.
This gloss is very pretty, but it just wasn’t pleasant to wear.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
You need to re-dip the brush into the tube several times because the gloss resists spreading and the brush has a small applicator.
For $30.00 you get 0.20 fl oz (6 ml) of product. The price is ever-so-slighter on the higher side, even for a high-end brand like YSL, given the amount you get.
