I had a voucher for House of Fraser and what better way to spend it than in the beauty department. I actually didn't know what to buy I wandered around the Chanel counter and then the YSL counter and then decided I'd spend it on a YSL lipstick. I absolutely love the YSL Rouge Volupte's and for some reason the two I have are bright colours. I see these lipsticks as a real treat at £22.50 they aren't exactly the cheapest of lipsticks. I played around with these lipsticks for a while in search of that perfect nude brown lipstick.
I know I have become pretty boring with lip colours lately but I can't help it. The colour I decided on was number 20 'Spicy Pinky' and I love it its just so much more than your average nude, it's like your lips but better! I love this colour it seems like my current favourite NARS lipliner in 'Rosebud' would compliment this so well. I promise I will put some pics of new products on me as soon as I get well enough to take pics. (My skin is all over the place!)
For those of you who have never tried these lipsticks before they are amazing, they feel so lovely on the lips and have a glossy but non sticky finish to them. I feel like they give the lips a really plumped out look which makes me what to pout! Haha. I am really loving glossy lips at the moment, especially in the evenings.
The packaging of these lipsticks is divine, so luxurious I love whipping these out the handbag! The Rouge Voluptes also smell gorgeous like watermelons -Yummy! I thought I would share swatches of the other two colours I have as I think they are so so perfect for SS11 and amazing for creating that statement lip.
How gorgeous are these colours.. ahh my growing YSL RV family! One thing I love is the little mirror on top of the lipsticks.. HOWEVER the one I purchased didn't have one and I didn't realise till I got home. Have they stopped doing the mirrors on top? Or is this just an odd one? It was such a perfect touch! Tut Tut..
What do you guys think of the YSL Rouge Volupte's? Do you own any? Which are your favourites? What have you been treating yourself with lately?
Lots of Love
