The Review: YSL Rouge Volupte

I have an absolute love for YSL lipsticks, and this one does not dissapoint. Coming into Autumn, reds, berry's, purples and general warm toned lipsticks are a must. I personally think this lipstick is an all year rounder, but I really love to dress it up with a gorgeous smokey eye in the autumn months. (brave you say?- I say go for it!) First thing I love about YSL lipsticks is their packaging. You really get your moneys worth here..

YSL, Rouge Volupte in Red Muse, #17 is just gorgeous. It looks, feels, and wears like its price tag. The gold packaging can be a danegrous one, as it can look quite cheap and tacky, but from my perspective YSL really pull it out the bag. I love the detail showing the true colour of the lipstick, and its secure lid gives you the confidence that you wont open your bag to a new red interior!

Product wise, this lipstick is really easy to apply without having to use a lip brush and a mirror. It smooths onto the lips and feels really hydrating, smooth and soft on my lips too, and I can tell you that this lipstick keeps your lips moisturised even once it has come off. It doesn't dry out whatsoever, or leave your lips feeling rough and lacking moisture. It has a really rich warm tone, and finishes with a beautiful shine that actually stays put for over an hour! And in addition to that, once the shine wears off, you are left with a gorgeous matte red colour that I suppose stains the lip, even though technically it's not a lip stain. However, it doesnt have that horrible washed out kind of look that other stained lipsticks leave, the full rich tone of the colour stays bold and full on the lips, it's just the shiny look has worn off! 

You can see in these photos the gorgeous shine that comes with this lipstick and it really doesn't dissapoint. An absolute 10/10 from me.

Have you tried any of the Rouge Volupte lipsticks? Which colour do you like to wear in Autumn?
