YSL- ROUGE VOLUPTE TENDER PEACH
I do believe fellow makeup addicts that I may have discovered the perfect summer lip colour. This shade is exactly as YSL describes... tender (bless). I really do adore the Rouge Volupte concept! I mean the lipstick is lovely, the shades are perfect for me, the packaging is to die for, and practical too, and of course let us not forget it is a YSL product! The product creators at YSL had a girl like me in mind when they developed this range I am sure! I mean gold packaging, a pretty design, and of course a little mirror perfect for quick on the go touch ups! Be warned you will need touch ups, as this formulation does not stay put for long! All of these factors make this the perfect lux lippy.
I have read reviews elsewhere in which girls feel this lipstick slides all over your face, I disagree. I think this is the ideal consistency. It is soo easy to apply even in the nooks and crannies of the cupids bow. Not only is it effortless to apply, this lipstick fades beautifully, leaving you with a slight tint to the lips. I have four of these lipsticks, this shade along with number 7 is my favourite. I felt that number 26 deserved a review as it is a shade more suited for summer!
There is a downside to this lipstick, but it's not the product... As always it's the price! It's the same as the Chanel £21. I'm starting to think that if you want a truly 'special', 'premium' lip product this is what you must spend! The Rouge Volupte may be nearly double the price of a MAC lipstick, and I do love MAC's lipsticks, but somehow to me it's worth it. This lipstick gives me something that MAC just can't! Also have you seen the latest two MAC collections.... HIDEOUS! It is the first time I have passed on a MAC collection for years! Saved me some money though! So go on girls it's Saturday tomorrow! Treat yourself!
