So I know the title of this post says that it's a 'review' but quite honestly, it isn't. It's a RAVE! I have been in love with the YSL lipsticks for honestly about a year now, lusted over them whenever I went past a counter and swatched them on the back of my hand wistfully, much to the annoyance of the snotty YSL makeup ladies. So, I know that at £23.50 the Rouge Volupté lipsticks aren't exactly cheap. But oh my god they are pretty!
Seeing as I have been lusting over these lipsticks for such a long time I don't feel as bad for splurging slightly, especially seeing as I picked it up at duty free on my way back from Greece as my flight was delayed and I needed a pick me up! And pick me up it did.
The colour I ended up choosing after dithering for ages was Lingerie Pink; I am so glad I did. I haven't stopped wearing it since I bought it, and I wanted to get a shade that I would actually wear rather than just add to my already vast selection of unused lipsticks. It's a beautiful baby pink/nude colour. It's so creamy and applies like a dream. It leaves my lips feeling nourished and soft,lasts a good couple of hours on my lips and covers my quite naturally pigmented lips well.
Having said all that, as fickle as it sounds though I think the thing I love most about this lipstick is the packaging, the beautiful gold casing feels weighty and luxurious, and feels like a proper grown up lipstick.
What's the beauty item you've splurged the most on? Do you regret it?
