It's finally weekend! Oh happy days haha!
I was sitting and thinking what I wanted to write about on this blog and one thing that popped in my head was my days at Yves Saint Laurent Beauté. Last semester I got the opportunity to do an internship at L'Oréal Sweden at the Luxe division (YSL) and I was Jr Retail Marketing intern (basically I was helping the Brand Manager). The thing that made me happy was the responsibilities I got because my boss believed in my abilities and gave me bigger tasks that most interns don't get. My time at YSL was so much fun and I got be involved in different campaigns for example Vernis À Lèvres Vinyl Cream, Black Opium Wild, YSL Fall Look & Holiday Look 2016 but the biggest "event" was the launch of the perfume Mon Paris EdP.
Let me say that I totally miss working with the brand and whenever I go to a department store I see everything in another point of view since working with retail marketing and can tell if it "looks good" with artwork and makeup grids. Anyway, I was in city just walking around and as I was passing KICKS, I suddenly stopped and saw the gondola for Black Opium the Floral Shock. It was my last project before ending my internship, it felt really nice to see the final result in the shop so I went inside to look. Well it ended up with me buying the stuff haha but hey sometimes we need to spoil ourselves right?
First let me say that YSL The Shock mascara is my new favorite, it's just amazing. I'm not just saying this to "promote" the product but I have tried few mascara from different brands during my time at L'Oréal and this is the best one yet. It is easy to apply, it really brings out your eyes and add volume, most importantly it's easy to remove. As for the fragrance, if you like the "Black Opium family" then you going to love this one as well! Yes, YSL is more pricey brand since it's more "exclusive" and luxurious but The Shock mascara is more towards Millennials and is "cheaper" than other YSL mascara.
Have you tried the new YSL mascara or perfume? What did you think?
Ok I have to get ready, I'm meeting up my friends soon so talk to you guys later
