So I may be late hopping onto the bandwagon with this one, but once I took the plunge and purchased these babies, and tried them… I absolutely had to rave on about them too. This is the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipsticks. I am reviewing 01 Nude Beige and 13 Peach Passion.
What Is It? A smooth creamy lipstick that leaves lips soft and gives a radiant colour. Nude Beige is a light pinkish nude colour and Peach Passion is a coral pink peach colour.
What’s In It? These lipsticks contain Hyaluronic acid microspheres which gives this formula intense moisture and hydration.
How To Use It? Like any lipstick, wind the stick up and apply over your lips. The texture is so creamy it only needs 1 or 2 swipes to apply the colour.
How Much Is It? You can purchase these at Myer or DJs for $55 each. Yeah, another steep one for us Aussies. Or you can try your luck on ebay for around $40 each.
Why I Love It? It’s just a lipstick right? A very expensive lipstick! Why so much fuss? Well I believe that these are worth all the hype. A lot of people talk about how creamy, most pigmented and glossy it is. And it’s very true. The colour is so rich, it doesn’t take much to get it on your lips, and the creaminess means it glides on so smoothly. It’s also mega glossy so you don’t need a gloss on top! And it’s not gloss-sticky either. But what I think is the best quality in these lipsticks is it’s moisturizing ability. It feels so hydrating on, while still maintaining the colour pay-off. It almost has this balmy texture to it. The colour doesn’t come off as easily as some other lipsticks. Don’t get me wrong, it does come off if you accidentally brush it against something, or while drinking your coffee; but because of it’s balmy/moisturizing formula, the colour doesn’t smear off – it’s more like how a lipbalm would smear off – the pigmented colour remains on your lips. With my other lipsticks, the rich colour would GO EVERYWHERE. I love them!
