Dayuuum. That’s all I have to say about the YSL Zip-Top Easy¬† Tote. No, seriously though, this may be the most fantastic bag I’ve ever seen.

That color! The website calls it red, but to me, it’s clearly pink. I realize that this color may limit the mass appeal of the bag. As someone who has phone, camera, laptop, iPod and wallet are all pink, I sometimes overlook this aspect. I think this is what makes this a gutsy, “I stand out” bag.

What else is perfect about the YSL Zip-Top Easy Tote? The size. 11″ x 16″ x 8″ means it will fit papers, a couple of folders, a little makeup bag and other stuff you need for the day. So that means you can take it to work! Isn’t that always the ultimate justification for a fashion purchase, whether you can use it for work or not?

I realize I may sound way too excited right now, but there must be something to pink bags if Sarah Jessica Parker wore one, right?

Allow me to introduce you to my new “magic wand,” YSL’s Touch Eclat or Radiant Touch Highlighter to those of us do not parlent francais.

It’s marketed primarily as a highlighter, but boasts concealer powers as well. I suffer from horrendous dark circles no matter how rested I am and so for me, a good concealer is key. Touch Eclat features an brush applicator tip that you use to paint drops or streaks on the product onto your skin. It has a really fabulous texture that you can keep working and spreading around without it becoming cakey and muddy. In terms of masking circles and other imperfections, Touch Eclat gets 5 stars.

But that’s not to say that its highlighting capabilities are not noteworthy. Apply it to your t-zone and boom! Radiant, glowing skin is yours.
