You may have seen me rave about the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks in the past, and today the post is no difference. I love just about everything about the lipstick formula, the packaging and, in this case, the colour.
Shade 2, or Pourpre Intouchable, is a beautiful glossy, slightly pink toned plum shade. It does have some shimmer running through it but it doesn't really translate as shimmer on the lips and you cannot feel it at all. The lipstick glides onto the lips really smoothly, doesn't bleed and leaves a nice sheer-to-medium coverage of colour. They aren't drying, and while they don't last as long as something matte they do last decently considering they are a glossy finish product.
The shape of the lipstick bullet might put some people off because it doesn't have the classic pointed shape but don't fret. The shape might be difficult to be precise with if the lipstick were matte, highly pigmented or meant to be long lasting/a stain but because of the glossy and somewhat sheet nature of this product the flat bullet shape actually makes the lipstick quick and easy to apply.
I'll let the luxurious packaging speak for itself because, quite frankly, it doesn't need words. It's stunning, but it doesn't come without a hefty price tag. These lipsticks are at heartbreaking (or bank breaking) £25 a pop, so maybe save up to treat yourself if you fancy picking one up.
You can see my previous reviews here and here, and you can also pick up this shade or others for £25 here from Debenhams.
Thanks for reading and have a lovely day,
