Asalam o Alaikum,
*Takes a deep breath*. Who doesn't rave about YSL Rouge Volupte Lipsticks ? From the packaging to the product itself, everything seems PURE CLASSY !
So, lets see, if it is really worth all the hype ?
What YSL Says:
Give in to the temptation of dazzling color. Succumb to unique sensorial experience with extreme comfort and luminous shine. Hyaluronic acid micro-spheres help seal in moisture for 8 hours of hydration. Anti-oxidants and emollients help condition and soften lips.
Let's start from the packaging. Ahhh...!! The gold metallic packaging with a color band around which shows the shade of the lipstick is absolutely GLAMOROUS. It is sturdy, the cap fits in just perfectly. It has to be the most BEAUTIFUL lipstick packaging ever.!!! I was totally sold on it <3
The shade I got it PINK IN CONFIDENCE, which is described by YSL as a Dusty Pale Pink. It is a pretty dusty salmon pink on me i don't find it pale though. It is a perfect everyday color, when you're going for a no make-up look and still doesn't want it to be boring =D. This also looks totally gorgeous when paired with black intense smokey eyes.
The pigmentation is sheer (buildable) as obviously it is from the Rouge Volupte Shine range so i don't mind that. It does hydrates your lips pretty well I don't find any need to apply a lip balm underneath. My lips look plump and healthy after application.
The only downside for me is the wear time. On me it lasts for about 4 hours (approx) without eating and drinking.
I'd rate the wear time 6/10
Fragrance & Taste:
It has a sweet fruity frangrance to it which isn't too prominent and it tastes sweet too which i don't mind at all =D.
You'll Like it:
- If you like the luxurious packaging & feel.
- If you like sheer pigmentation.
- It hydrates your lips really well.
- It has wide range of colors.
You'll Not Like It:
- If you don't like sheerly pigmented lipsticks.
- If you don't like lipsticks that have any kind of frangrance or smell.
- The price tag is hefty.
- Not available locally.
- Wear time is is very less.

Much Love xx
