If you are a collector, go get it while it’s still hot, you guys! 

First thing first, the box is sturdy, made of hard carton. I saw other brand’s advent calendar and when one vlogger unbox it, it was easily torn. But this YSL, even when you pull out the individual ‘drawer’, it slides in and out easily without any struggle. It does scream festive with shimmering golden stars. Gorgeously designed, I must say. 

As any advent calendar out there, there are 24 items, all of the best-selling mostly makeup products, a bit of mini-size skincare, fragrances and a pocket mirror.

Minis? No worries, there are four full-size lipsticks inside. Most of the lipsticks are in the red shade family, so if you are a fan of red lips, enjoy!

For skin enthusiasts, this is your chance to try their mini size before you commit to the full size.

And their fragrance miniatures are to drool for!

So, this Christmas, treat yourself or that extra someone with this luxe gift (priced at 6.3mio rupiah). 



Welcoming the first ever tint in oil lip color on the beauty market, VOLUPTE TINT IN OIL from YSL. 

Described as a revolutionary lip color with a lip tint suspended in a deep conditioning oil, truly I was feeling a bit skeptical about this latest invention. I mean, mixing oil with color? Was that even possible? Will the color stick on the lips long enough before that licking temptation? Apparently, nothing is impossible. What you see is the infusion of color with four essential oils to be exact: apricot kernel, coriander fruit, jojoba seed and possiflora seed oil. Using Color Link Infuser technology, it enables the tint particles to dissolve homogenously in the precious oil emulsion.

Another surprising point I found out at their launching event this week at Galeries Lafayette, Jakarta, YSL Beauty Indonesia does carry the total 8 shades available. Priced at Rp 450.000 each, they come in a range of very light to subtly bright colors. If you’re too lazy to swatch, or disgusted to try the testers on the counter due to sanitary reason, just check out the Volupte Codes. Yup. they color matched the ring on the tube with the actual shades inside. IMHO, these are not for those who love intense color on their lips. Nor for those who are looking for long lasting lip color. Their textures are very fluid but emollient enough, they won’t slide and making mess on the lips. Make sure you apply with the ‘Bouche A Bouche’ applicator for more precise & uniform application, though. 

I’ve got No 8 (Pink About Me) to try at home. It does look a bit purplish on the applicator, but once applied, it turned baby pink. Awesome! I love the way it turned my lips into a healthier looking one. That luminous shine is unbeatable, feel light on the lips…and believe it or not, it’s not sticky (actually it felt kind of balmy somehow). Now I know what they meant by “this tint will enhance the natural beauty of the lips”. It will look pretty on those who already born with those naturally pigmented lips. For those who are not so lucky, I recommend using their best pair, ROUGE VOLUPTE SHINE Lipstick beforehand. 

If you’re looking for more natural healthy glow result without looking too wet, try blotting with tissue. Blot once and you’ll get this similar but less wet look on your lips. This is a great alternative for those who got serious chapped looking lips while wearing those ultra-matte lipstick, or just bored with that one dimension stain. Don’t just buy my words, give this tint a try, and you’ll know how Volupte Tint in Oil will make your lips look prettier. 



Congratulations to YSL Beaute Indonesia for the launch of their latest counter in Central Department Store, Grand Indonesia, Jakarta.

In conjunction with the opening, they also launch their new arrivals, “Danger Lips Collection”, “Forever Youth Liberator Y Shape” and Blush Volupte. Let’s start with the lips, shall we? With the latest collection, they offer four looks, “Daring”, “Edgy”, “Sexy” and “Rock”. Some Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks are new, some are classic best seller like Rouge Pur Couture #52 (Rouge Rose), a most wanted lipstick shade (thanks to K-Pop madness). 

The newest addition is Blush Volupte (Rp 680.000), available in 9 colors. There are two ways to apply this blush, mixed together as blush or apply separately to sculpt. As for skincare, they have Forever Youth Liberator Y Shape, perfect to achieve that Youth Shape look. Comes in Creme (Rp 1.800.000) and Concentrate (Rp 1.850.000), these duo will work hand in hand to restore lost volumes and redefine Y-shape contours on face, neck and decollete. 

Well, beauty enthusiasts…what are you waiting for?
