What is your #1 YSL Makeup Essential? (Hannah C told us & won)

When deciding whether or not to try a new beauty brand, I always recommend looking at how many awards the products in the line have received. Whether it is Allure, InStyle, CEW or ELLE, these award lists offer a good indication of quality and performance. I often ask the counter staff to tell me which item has received the most awards. That is the best product to buy first.

YSL makeup essentialsTake YSL for example, in 2014 the brand received 14 global beauty awards for its Touche Éclat product alone. Vomume magazine in Thailand voted it ‘best concealer’ as did New Zealand’s Bauer Media Group, Spain’s Clara magazine, China’s Shenjiang and InStyle UK. I think it has won every major beauty award in the world. It is that good.

This month, YSL is celebrating its most iconic beauty products. The French Fashion & Beauty House has selected nine products that are best-sellers around the world. And those that have received the most beauty awards.

This luminizing pen brings light and radiance to the skin, erasing signs of fatigue. Beauty editors call it 8 hours of sleep in a pen because it hides the signs of fatigue so well.
