YSL Rouge Volupté’ Lipsticks Review & Swatches

123One can never have enough lipsticks, right? YSL lipsticks are definitely one of my favorites. They are under the spot light today .

Read more to find out what I really think about these lipsticks.

YSL Rouge Volupté’ Lipsticks : An extremely smooth and creamy lipstick with a formula that transforms into a fluid veil of radiant color when it touches the lips.One of these Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE VOLUPTÉ Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15 is sure to be your new signature color: they’re sensual, radiant, and strong. With shades that drench the lips with densely pigmented color and a unique color-shine complex, lips are visibly smoothed, plumped, and radiant with luminous satin color.

My thoughts about these products :  YSL Rouge Volupté Lipsticks are most buttery, creamy, satiny and nourishing lipsticks I have ever used. If you have dry, chapped lips problem , then you can trust these lipsticks, these will not dry your lips out.  The quality of these lipsticks are watery, which means it can slip and slide off your lips and it also does feather and settle into fine lines, for preventing this, I would highly suggest to use some kind of lip primer. I personally use MAC’s Prep and Prime. Eventhough YSL Rouge Volupté Lipsticks are not matte but you will be surprised by seeing their staying power and pigmentation, I always blot my lipstick, and after blotting these , they stay good few hours, I really love how satiny my lips look when I blot these lipsticks . What can I say about the packaging , I think I dont have to say much about their packaging .YSL always gets me on their packaging! So beautiful and luxurious! And I love how we can see the lipstick shade without opening the tube.

In todays post I will talk about few Lipstick shades and I thought  it’s better to show you the swatches and  mini reviews , I hope that can help you more, rather than naming them! if you need in depth review on these shades , feel free to comment below, I will definitely do so.
