YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick #27: Rose Paris
I've been meaning to write a post on this lipstick ever since I got it from my boyfriend for my birthday which was at the start of September, I just kept forgetting or writing other posts. First of all, I am in love with the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks, a girl needs at least one luxury lipstick in her collection. I already owned Sensual Silk which is such a lovely nude and had been lusting after Rose Paris for months, (someone must read my wishlist posts) it's such a gorgeous, summery pinky/coral colour.
First of all the thing that draws me to these lipsticks the most is the unbelievable packaging, the gold and the detail on it is so gorgeous and sophisticated. I love how it shows you what colour it is in the detailing around the middle and love getting it out on a night out. The lipstick also has a gorgeous Watermelon scent which is great for me as I hate lipsticks with horrible perfumey scents (*cough* L'Oreal).
The formula of the lipstick is extremely creamy and moisturising and glides on like a dream. The only downside of it being so creamy is that I feel it doesn't last as long as other lipsticks, but that's just an excuse to get it out more and show it off! It also has excellent pigmentation and a little goes a long way. I love the colour, especially for Summer as right now I'm wearing a darker lip.
The lipsticks are ridiculously expensive at £23.50, but I think the packaging alone makes up for that. So if you're looking for a little luxury why not treat yourself to one of these beauties or pop it on your Christmas list.
