YSL Rouge Volupte ~ Beige Impetueux (107)

This product just makes you want to start singing James Blunt you're beautiful...

I will hold my hands up and say I have never owned anything from YSL (I had the Touche Elate years and years ago) but this is my first ever lipstick purchase.  I treated myself to this when I went away to Tunisia at the airport duty free counter.

The box and the tube

Just opening this little golden box is magical.  When it comes to the packaging I honestly think this is the crown jewels of packaging.  Compare this to MAC for example... YSL is a diamond whilst MAC is a lump of coal - see what I mean?  Pulling this beauty out of your purse is like shouting 'lookie what I got!!!'

So pretty

I love the concept that YSL have added a coloured collar that matches the lipstick shade.  I think it's great if your in a rush as the colour indicates what shade is inside.  It saves time.

Hand swatch in natural lighting

I think this is quite similar to MAC's Hue lipstick (I will do a comparison post soon).  It is that easy pinky-beige which will compliment any look.  This has a light shimmer running through it... micro shimmer is the word to describe it so it isn't anything to be scared about.

On the lips (if you can tell)

A light creamy consistency which I find this very soothing on the lips. With the infused micro shimmer and the satiny pearl finish it will certainly looks eye catching.  I wouldn't say it lasts a long time but I think that's because it is so creamy... I think I lick it off!  You would need it with you to reapply if you were having drinks or dinner.

They are a little expensive for a lipstick... £23.50.  Gulp!  However if you're a sucker for amazing packaging then you may wish to detour to a YSL counter near you.

Have you ever tried a YSL lipstick?
