When I think of YSL lipsticks class and elegance are the words that spring to mind. A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to a beautiful YSL Rouge Volupté lipstick. The nearest store to me that stocks any high end make up is around 40 minutes away *feel for me girls* so me being the eager beaver that I am wanted it there and then, so after a good couple of hours spent reading reviews and googling swatches I finally decided on the shade Opera Rose 29 and it has already left me wanting more...

Now I try not to judge a book by it's cover but when it comes to these lipsticks it's pretty hard not to do so isn't it?! I am totally besotted with the packaging, boy oh boy is it beaut! It's a gorgeous golden tube with a colour band around the middle letting you see the shade with an encased YSL logo. It's slightly heavier than any of the other lipsticks I own which I personally feel makes it even more of a luxurious product. Do any of you love that sound when you put a lid back on a lipstick and it does that satisfying 'click'? Yep, this does that too letting you know that it's in place and secure. The colour is a beautiful medium pink that's not too bright. For me this is more of a sophisticated colour as it doesn't scream Barbie which is a vast difference to the colour I am normally drawn to, I'm normally a massive lover of baby pinks and nudes. I have to say that this looked totally different in the flesh in comparison to some of the online swatches I had come across. It's actually a lot darker, if I'm being totally honest I probably wouldn't have picked this up out of the selection had I gone to the YSL counter, however I'm actually really pleased I got this as I don't own any shades similar and it's nice to have a new colour added to my collection instead of another one which looks exactly the same as the rest which is something I'm normally prone to doing. I really do love this colour on my lips it's pretty and flattering especially when I have a tan as it looks a lot more pink and summery. The texture and finish of the lipstick is soooo creamy and buttery, I don't think my lips have ever felt so soft and moisturised wearing a lipstick. The pigmentation is incredible it is extremely opaque, 1 swipe and you're ready to go! I know this tube will last me such a long time as there is a lot of product in there and all you need is a smidge. It smells like mangos too, subtle enough not to overwhelm you but still a beautiful scent. I'm also loving that this also contains an SPF 15 for your smackers.
