If you’re a long time reader of Pink Peonies, then you know I’m a total YSL beauty junkie, especially when it comes to their lip colors!! YSL recently launched an exclusive collection for Nordstrom called YSL Pop Water. The collection is perfect for spring and summer, full of hydrating and translucent colors that pop! My favorite product from the collection is the glossy stain in Pink Rain. It not only looks amazing when paired on top of a lipstick, but also alone. It has a translucent shine (goes on a lot lighter than what you would expect) perfect for day-to-day!

Shop the collection below…

Let me know in the comment box below if you have any questions about any of the products used or how I applied them. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi!
    Love this post…well actually I love every post :-) just curious what highlighter you use?
    Thank you, happy friday!!

  2. I’m not sure if you’re aware, but YSL is one of the brands rated to have the highest concentration of lead. That is never good but especially when you are pregnant or for anyone trying to conceive. All of these mainstream cosmetics (if not natural/organic) are filled with toxic chemicals. I remember reading via your instagram comment to someone that you had tried to get pregnant for over a year. Many people do and don’t realize what they eat, drink, clean with and the cosmetics they use are the major contributor. Just something to keep in mind if you plan to have any more little ones. The overall look is very pretty though and that dress is lovely!

  3. Hey Rachel! I also love the ysl lip products, however I have never tried their eye shadow, blush not highliter. I would like to try them, do you think they are equally amazing as the lip products? And does the highlighter cover dark circles?
    I love your blog, keep it up!

  4. Can you tell me who made your leopard carpet in your closet area? I love it and have been thinking of getting one like that in my walk-in closet. Thank you! Love your blog, etc.


  5. Hi Rachel,

    It’s so fabulous to see a refresher make up tutorial! I was thinking about that this morning while doing my normal routine. I love trying new products, especially in Spring that help make your skin look radiant and fresh! I will definitely be purchasing some of your suggestions to try! Thanks for sharing this great post!

  6. I love this natural look! I went to the Nordstrom Spring Beauty Event and it was all about a natural face and I pop of color on the lips! I have that moisture stain from YSL in a coral and love it!!! xoxo A

  7. You’re the one that got me hooked on YSL!! I am a beauty junkie and have collected so many beautiful shades! I haven’t tried the Pop Water but it sounds divine!! I loved this post!! The products are beautiful and the pictures are stunning! Great job with this one, Rach!!

  8. Would you mind telling where your desk came from? I found your blog on Pinterest and have become obsessed with your desk/vanity AND style!!!

    Thank you!!
