Things I wish I had fewer of: chin hairs, Nutella cravings, and embarrassing outbursts.
Things I wish I had more of: pairs of shoes with four-inch heels, free time, and colorful yet low-maintenance lipglosses.
I may be blind as a bat without my glasses and shorter than most middle schoolers, but at least my lips look good thanks to Yves Saint Laurent Gloss Pur in #9 Pur Hibiscus ($30).
Loaded with shine, this fuchsia cutie is one of four glosses in the YSL summer makeup collection (NOTE: YSL’s rolling all four shades into their permanent line). Its semi-sheer, easy-to-wear color means not having to worry about gloss edging past your natural lip line or accidentally smearing all over your face.
The texture feels thick but isn’t sticky, and despite an unusual flavor and scent (like black pepper and sweet watermelon, but in the BEST possible way), it’s a sensory success.
NOTE: Yep, pepper and watermelon, but I think it works in an odd bacon-and-chocolate kinda way.

For the price of a case of Nutella, #9 Hibiscus makes me feel full-on fancy, embarrassing outbursts aside. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
You might like YSL Gloss Pur in #9 Hibiscus if…
- You don’t mind the steep price
- You like semi-sheer pigments
- You like low-maintenance lipglosses
- You don’t mind the strong (but oddly pleasant) flavor and scent
Words that haunt me..
I know how to spell it correctly, but whenever I’m typing my fingers insist on spelling it “fuschia” instead. EVERY TIME! I was visibly straining to type it correctly up there, like the universe didn’t want it to be spelled that way.
“Don’t do it, Karen! Please. NO! Don’t type the “c” before the “s”. Oh, gawd, she did it! WE’RE ALL DOOMED!!!”
