YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Review
I have the shade 17 Rose In Tension. I decided that if I was going to own one of these lipsticks, I wanted something special that i knew I would wear. I'm not a girl who loves nudes, but I am a girl who loves a red lip. So, I chose this colour, which I call my grown up red. It's not as bright as my other red lipsticks, but I love that about it.
Now for the quality of the actual lipstick. I would say, the lasting power of this lipstick is somewhere between a MAC cream sheen and matte finish. It's not incredible considering how much they cost, but I find that if I apply a small amount, blot it, then apply it again, it can last a good 2-3 hours, which in my book is quite respectable! I have seen reviews that say this has worn off in ten minutes, but for me, thankfully, I haven't found this.
I can't lie and admit that the packaging for this isn't the prettiest thing I have ever seen. Every time I remember I have this lipstick, I let out a little inner excited squeal! It really is stunning. It is definitely a lipstick I save for special occasions rather than everyday use of a night out(as I am scared I'll lose it in my slightly tipsy state!) Also, as you all probably already know, it smells like watermelons, mmmm...
So, overall, despite the hefty price tag, I would say if you are looking into getting one of these lipstick, do it! Make sure you pick a colour you know you will wear though! And, if you want to make it seem even more special, just save it for special occasions :)
I would really like to try the YSL glossy stains next, but I think I might look into the Loreal dupe first, and parting with over £20 for a lip product is SO hard!

Hope this review helped a few of you decide whether to take the plunge on this lipstick! Do any of you own one already and love/hate it?
