Sometimes in life you just need a little luxury.

My mom asked what my final requests were as far as using her discount at Neiman Marcus. It was her last week there, so I needed to buy whatever I wanted now, with her discount, instead of paying full price later (Like I even would). That was basically my only chance to really be able to afford luxury. 

I thought about it, and thought about it. 

"What is one luxurious item you've been lusting after?"

Well, a Chanel bag. But even with her discount, I'd never be able to afford it. 
So I scratched that. 

So, my next thought was Yves Saint Laurent. 
Yes. YSL.
but not just anything...
a Yves Saint Laurent lipstick.
(You have to say that with a french accent. have to. )

The creme de la creme of all lipsticks. 
and at $34 for a tube of lipstick, they better be. 

The packaging itself is to die for. I mean, this thing is heavy. 
It just screams luxury to me. 
I tried on a bunch of shades and finally got sick of staring at my lips so I randomly picked a shade I liked. 

When I got home and looked at it more closely, I giggled.

 Of course I'd pick the shade called "Pink in Paris"
and 13 happens to be my favorite number. 
Hmm... Was it made for me?

It made me smile because I swear I didn't do that on purpose. 

But it's the perfect shade of pink. 
It's subtle, but you can tell it's there, you know?
 I really like it and I feel like it's my perfect 'everyday' shade. 

Because sometimes in life
you just need a little luxury.

A few people asked to see the lipstick on, so I took this rather embarrassing photo to show you.
I'm such a dork.
