Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Review

Today’s post is about one of my favorite lipstick brand that I have been using for quite a while. I bought these from our recent hongkong trip. At first I thought they were a bit pricey, but they exceeded my expectations. I tried and fell in love each time that I use them:

What I Love…
 It has a gorgeous packaging. It is in elegant gold case that looks so romantic and so enticing…
It is silky, moisturizing and ultra creamy.
It glides on smoothly like butter.
It has a glossy/shiny finish
The narrow tip makes an easy and effortless application.
It has a light fruity floral scent to it.
It has an SPF 15.
What I don’t Love…
The Price tag.. It is expensive!
Not so lasting, I only get 3-4 hours of wear with them.
Here are the swatches:
2 ysl swatches

3 when worn ysl lipstick

YSL No. 1 Nude Beige, doesn’t seem so beige, it turns to be a lovely nude pink on me. It’s my perfect nude pink next to my favorite “Mac Creme cup”. 

4 YSL No. 3 Beige Ultimate

YSL No. 3 Beige Ultimate, i find it really hard to describe because it changes color in diferrent lighting.
It’s not too dark nor too pale- it’s like a rosy dark peach, looks natural though.. somewhat dark nude with a little hint of peach-a little orangey. For me, it’s a unique shade that is very wearable. I’ve never had this shade before and I’m loving it!
So, Have you tried any of YSL lippies? Do you have any shade recommendation?
