Les Sahariennes… Les Sahariennes…
I’m getting more and more convinced of the fact that product names influence my purchases and opinions about them.
Like, remember when I told you how much I love MAC All Fired Up (both the lipstick and the name), and how I think it’s the lipstick I’d wear if I were set to conquer the world? And I also feel similarly about Tarte Fiery… Or NARS Carthage.
For some reason, whenever I pronounce Carthage in my head, I always say it the French way. I don’t know why, I just think it sounds better like that (which is weird, since I usually like English better than French).
But anyways, my latest product name crush is YSL Les Sahariennes Sun-Kissed Blur Perfector, which instantly makes me daydream of golden sands and rolling dunes stretching beyond the horizon… Apparently, it looks like I have a thing for makeup products whose names evoke fire or places in North Africa. Who knew.
The YSL Les Sahariennes Sun-Kissed Blur Perfector is a balm-to-powder formula that looks and feels completely weightless on the skin. I use my Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush to apply it all over my face and neck, focusing on my cheeks, nose and forehead, and it gives me the most natural sun-kissed glow. It also helps minimize the look of pores and fine lines, which is always a plus, don’t you think? 😉
Have you ever tried the YSL Les Sahariennes Sun-Kissed Blur Perfector or anything similar? And do you think product names influence your purchases and the opinion you have on the products themselves?
