Its been said that even in a recession, women will continue buying lipsticks, because they are give a quick instant boost for not too much moolah.
I had that down in the dumps feeling the other week and decided I needed that boost, except my lipstick of choice was a rather pricey one at £20.50.
But it’s so sexy, isn’t it?…..
Rouge Volupte has some strong points going for it.
1. The packaging is gorgeous.
2. The texture is stunning, creamy and soft.
3. It is nicely pigmented.
However I did not gel to the Rouge Volupte because the majority of the core shades were unbearable, bright, a little, dare I say it – chavvy? Hideously light tranni-rific lilac pinks, dark fuchsias with no sense of humour. Urgh.
YSL has addressed this with their four new natural toned additions. I chose one of them, Tender Peach:
Yep, I love it. The perfect shade, a fairly light, sparkle-less peachy tone, which looks sophisticated and elegant. I’m not saying we should all wear nudes, but when a lipstick is SO pigmented and SO creamy and SO unforgiving, its very hard to wear.
Tender Peach is just HAWT:
It’s not that long lasting though, but with such a pretty case, I don’t mind getting it out (I lie, I never top up lipstick, but if I did, I would be proud).
