Thank God for short forms of product names. Otherwise it would be the product with the longest name “Yves Saint Laurent Golden Satin Golden Gloss” that I own; Not a tongue twister but still very long.
YSL Golden Satin (30) Golden Gloss is a sheer pink coral with gold shimmer and a high gloss finish.
When you wear this & look into the mirror, your lips look so ‘bling-bling’ and when this wears off, some golden shimmery particles still remain on the lips. This shimmer makes the gloss beautiful. 

As it is a costly lipgloss I use it to highlight the cupid’s bow and the central part of lower lips to make my lips appear fuller.

According to the YSL website:
What it is:
A high shine lip gloss with real 24-carat-gold flecks.

What it does:
Yves Saint Laurent GOLDEN GLOSS Shimmering Lip Gloss is the ultimate in beauty luxury. This gloss forms a mirror-effect on the lips with sparkling gold mother-of-pearl.

This is a sheer pink coral color but the shimmer is pretty intense. As it is sheer it does not show much of a color on my pigmented lips but still adds a lovely finish when applied on a lipstick.
It comes in a sleek transparent tube with a golden top.
Its packaging looks pricey.
The brush is pretty small but applies the gloss smoothly.
This has a very different mangoey smell. Though it is not overpowering.
Wear time:
It stays on 2 hours on my lips without eating/drinking.
As it has nourishing oils (Nigelle and Cameline Oils), it is pretty moisturizing on Lips.
It is Non sticky and smooth in application


This lip gloss does not bleed at all.
Intense shimmer in the gloss can change the look of a boring lipstick in a swipe.
The fragrance can bother some people.
The small brush tends to flare a little.
Some people may not like the golden packaging.

Retail Price:
$30 (for 0.20 Oz)
Will I repurchase? : Not this one but I do want to try other colors.
