Yves Saint Laurent Lip Twins – Packaging porn

You might just want to check to see who is in the room while you are reading this post. Because this edition of packaging porn is not for the faint-hearted. Alone? Good. Time to get sexy! It doesn’t get much better than this…

Behold, Yves Saint Laurent Lip Twins. What are they, besides gorgeous? It’s a lip duo housed in a lipstick-like container, but with a few important twists (twists being the key word).

YvesStLaurentB Yves Saint Laurent Lip Twins   Packaging pornSee that logo medallion at the top? Here’s where the magic happens. Twist it and the mirror flips to reveal a pan of creamy, satin lipstick. One more twist reveals a sheer lipstick that compliments the satin. One more flip, and your back at the mirror.

But, how are you to apply these beautiful shades? You don’t think YSL would leave your glamorous self hanging, do you? Pull the medallion and out pops a lip brush.

The Lip Twins were pretty hard to find up until a few months ago, when our heros at BeautyTicket.com brought them back for only $17 a pop (about half of the original $32 price tag). Only 8 of the 12 shades remain, and they are going fast. My choice, #12 Raspberry Violet, is already gone. So I won’t bother talking about how divine the blue-based bright pink satin and the glimmering baby pink sheer are. But I will say, if you’re considering them, consider quickly.

This may just be the most couture looking lip product I’ve ever seen.

    YSL has the most stunning packaging! I bought my first Rouge Volupte and swear that I want to buried with it based on the packaging alone! It just makes you feel so chic! I noticed the Lip Twins on Beauty Ticket and wasn’t sure what to think. But with such a glowing review from Stef I think I am sold. Now where to get some money? hmmmm

    I have to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of lip brushes. I have them and they sit untouched in my brush collection. But the packaging is just so beautiful with these, that it’s worth the hassle of having to use a brush. Plus, the formula is really nice. Really creamy and long wearing.

    Honestly, I just get excited to pull it out my purse! I’m simple like that.

    Holy cow that is some FANCY packaging! I think I would be feel like I had to put this on in secret. Like, do some quick touch-ups under my desk and then pop back up like I just ate a chocolate cake in secret. You know what I’m saying? Secret indulgence…

    OOOOOH…AHHHHHH…that is some hard core packaging porn!!! Should I even be allowed to see this??? :)
    Alas, I am definitely too lazy for a lip brush. I can probably count on both hands the number of times I’ve used a lip brush in my entire life.

    I love lip color with fancy packaging. I always choose the lipsticks that go in my evening bag for a night out according to how fancy their packaging is; color is almost always secondary. This one is totally cool–it reminds me of a poison vial from Elizabethan days.
