Hot lipstick alert!
As someone who’s usually loyal to her favourite beauty brands..this was quite the surprise for me. I’m very picky with lipsticks in general and my go-to brands the past few years have been Tom Ford and Guerlain and Mac (but only for one specific colour which is Honey Love) 😀
So when I passed the beauty counters at the airport while waiting to catch a flight, I saw something at corner of my eye. A YSL beauty counter with something gold.
So I went closer and picked up this lipstick. And I left with it!
Rouge Volupte Shine has a great packaging. And I am a sucker for some damned good packaging! Hell, I have been guilty of buying something purely for the packaging. 😀
Its case is golden, with a cutout of the YSL logo. It reminds me of old-school glamour, I mean its not exactly a modern design when you compare to what Guerlain have been designing.
I absolutely love its texture and rich colour – very rarely do the hues pop up the way they are shown on the colour palette (hence my dedication to Tom Ford lipsticks 😀 )
The shine and the colour are just dazzling and and it seals moisture for about 8 hours. I would still recommend a lip conditioner before applying the lipstick but thats out of habit.
This colour is in Corail Incandescent. I always love abit of orange tint!
