Lets be honest. This is a lipstick you buy for the packaging…
And it is worth every expensive penny for that alone in my opinion. YSL Rouge Volupté in No. 9 is the lipstick in question.
The lipstick itself is a slightly orange toned medium pink. It isn’t a bright pink or a bold pink which is unlike me. It is a very sophisticated pink – to match that sophisticated packaging. The formulation is quite slippery and does slip around the lips. Blot and reapply and you’ll work it fine. It sticks around well even with drinking and licking lips, which is impressive for a moisturising formula.
This lipstick brings to a close my lipstick a day for June, I’m sure it will be back in August and then probably again in October… I really do have that many lipsticks! Including some more random ones. I’ll definitely start putting up comparison arm swatches soon too. So loads of lipstick still coming up! However, there will also be more ‘normal’ posts too. Including a cheeky IMATS haul, June Favourites and a quick Thursday review that should be up this week!
