Packaging: 9/10

YSL’s Golden Gloss comes in a clear, plastic, rectangular tube. The gloss also has a very short, brush applicator.

Quality: 7.25/10

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.

Price: 8.8/10

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.

    So pretty!

  3. Elena T says:

    too bad the formulation and consistency isn’t that great because it looks really nice in the tube! but for the price you’re paying, it could’ve been a better quality

    This gloss has so many shimmer on it. It look gorgeous!
