YSL Rouge volupte shine

Makeup September 3, 2015 Naomi

Well to be fair I never thought this day would ever come. Nothing and I mean nothing could have ever replaced my Revlon lip butters, Or so I thought.They even made it into my top three of things I actually love; 1. My Daughter 2. The cat 3. Revlon lip butters. So it has come as a massive surprise to me that I have found a lipstick that I love even more{albeit much more expensive!}

The YSL Rouge volupte shine is most probably the loveliest looking makeup item you will ever feast your eyes on. The packaging is just beautiful and looks high end before you even use it. The scent is the traditional YSL, melon, fruity, and so nice on the lips. The consistency is what wins the day for me though, so sheer and glossy but sits so well, and the colour payoff is brilliant for a balm type lipstick.

Because of the lightweight finish this feels more like a lip balm than a lipstick, and like a balm it is very hydrating and creamy. Most sheer lipsticks are terrible when it comes to lastability but this one lasted me a good few hours wear. The colour I have is Jealous coral[More pink than coral on me]  and is part of the spring collection,though in America I think they call it coral intuitive??, maybe that’s me and it’s from another collection?. I really wanted fuchsia storm as well, as I love a bubblegum pink lip, but that one was sold out so I will go back and order another time.

Now for the bad news, the price is not exactly the same as the £4.99 lip butters, at a pricey £26! I will say I got mine on sale and if you are prepared to wait they do fluctuate in price, so hold off and get a discount like I did. Would I pay full price?? No, because I think any lipstick over twenty pounds is a rip off, but for the quality, the beautiful packaging, and the colour pay off I will stump up for the fuchsia one at a later date.
