If you read my blog regularly, I’m sure you’re all aware by now that I’m partial to a lipstick or two (or fifty – but who’s counting) and the latest lippe to make its way into my collection is one renowned for being the most beautifully packaged lipstick ever - YSL Rouge Volupte. I received this along with the YSL Touché Eclat as a belated birthday present from my dad so as you can imagine, I was overjoyed when I opened the package. I do own one other Rouge Volupte lipstick which I've reviewed here but they’re far too expensive to buy on a regular basis so it was nice to receive some luxurious makeup treats.
As I said, YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks have to be one of, it not thee most beautifully packaged products I’ve ever seen. The gold tube and YSL engraving take it from a basic lipstick to a high-end, luxurious and special product. A lipstick like this reminds me of something a bride would wear on her wedding day – it screams class and elegance. Other than the amazing packaging which I could quite possibly stare at all day long, the product inside is just as beautiful.
The shade my dad picked for me (although I have an inkling my step-mum might of lent a helping hand) is number one ‘Nude Beige’, a beautiful pale pink. I have to admit when I first saw the name included ‘beige’ I was concerned it would be a super pale ‘corpse lips’ nude shade and I definitely don’t suit that look. Some people can pull an extremely pale lip off but me, no no no. They just make me look ill. However, much to my relief, the shade isn’t too pale at all and instead is the perfect everyday baby pink. Its the kind of shade I’ll be able to wear on an everyday basis for work or in the evening paired with a smoky eye. Its very Kim Kardashian!
My favourite thing about these lipsticks (other than the packaging) has got to be the formula. My favourite kind of lipsticks are creamy, moisturising and pigmented and the Rouge Volupte lipsticks are the best combination of those three qualities I’ve ever come across. They glide onto my lips like butter, hide a multitude of dry-lip sins, feel incredibly moisturising and have an opaque pigmentation with a high-shine finish. Perfect!
Other than the high £24.50 price tag, I cannot fault the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks. I love everything about them and even though they aren’t very long-lasting due to the creamy formula, I can’t say I mind pulling something this glamorous out of my handbag to re-apply. You can find Nude Beige here along with all the other pretty colour choices. I want them all!
Do you like the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks? Can you recommend any shades?
