Hello! I hope you are all well. If you have been reading my blog for a long time then you may have read my Top 3 High End Lipsticks post where I briefly mentioned my YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in Sensual Silk. For Christmas I got another one in the colour Rose Caresse, 9 so I thought I would review it for you because it is amazing!
To start with, look at the packaging! It is so beautiful and I love that the colour of the lipstick shows through around the middle. The colour is an absolutely gorgeous deep rose pink with a little bit of plum in it. It's the perfect autumn / winter colour and I find it suits my skin tone very well! The colour is extremely pigmented but also buildable. I sometimes apply a little bit and blend it in with my finger for more of a stain or I build it up for a bolder look. It never looks too bold or dark though, it's just the perfect everyday shade!
The YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks are honestly the creamiest lipsticks I have ever used! I find I don't need a lip balm when wearing this which is pretty amazing as my lips can be very dry. This lipstick applies so nicely as it's very soft and smooth. It also lasts amazingly well and I don't have to re apply this at all throughout the day if I don't want to! I find the colour doesn't stay as vibrant and rich so I could do with re-applying it around midday but it's definitely not necessary.
I absolutely love this lipstick - the formulation, texture, colour and packaging is just amazing!
