I absolutely adore the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks. The packaging is divine and so luxurious, any girl who's makeup mad would love to be gifted one (or two) of these! After owning shade '#13 Peach Passion' for quite a while, it was time to add a new shade to my ever so small YSL collection. After looking and drooling over swatches on google images for hours I finally decided to choose this beautiful pink shade '#29 Opera Rose'.
Now the shade on these pictures I took on my iPhone makes it look much brighter but in person it's more of a medium pink rather than a hot barbie pink. It's very wearable and good for both during the day or evening makeup looks.
As you can see above, I'm wearing the lipstick and this is how the shade looks in person compared to the first picture. It's a super girly pink and will suit most skin tones, especially those with a paler complexion.
The consistency of the lipstick is extremely creamy, probably one of the creamiest lipsticks on the market. It glides onto the lips effortlessly and it's so weightless, you feel like you're wearing a lip balm and not an opaque lipstick. You only need one layer to get the full opaque shade but you could also apply a couple of layers to build it up a bit more but it's not totally necessary.
Just to let you know, it's certainly not the most long lasting lipsticks in the world but you can still get a good 2-3 hours before it starts to wear off.
If you have dry lips then this formula is perfect for you with it being so creamy and easy to apply.
I purchased mine from Boots for £26.00 which is very pricey but it's totally worth it in my opinion. Next on my list is a nice red shade...
Do you own a lipstick from YSL?
