Ericke messaged me one night just to tell me she purchased an Yves Saint Laurent. She scares me sometimes ‘coz she can be like me in certain ways. “After trying it on, you wouldn’t want to go back to any other brand.” The Rouge Volupté and not what I initially thought it would be.
I was supposed to go buy just a curlash at Red Dot. How can you not notice the glass stand as you enter the door? Only the blind won’t know what’s in there. I’m a MAC zombie, but I stray. And so I spotted the gold.
I think I’ve seen the colors before. Your usual Sunday best pinks, juicy peaches and oranges, MLBB nudes, luscious reds and some purples. I first picked a shade in my comfort zone just in case I wouldn’t be liking the feel or opacity. I unearthed what is so special about them — the incomparable melting texture and brilliant pure color.
YSL says — for lips that crave endless pleasure. So it’s not just a hype in this day and age of labels.
Left to right: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Lipstick (No. 32) Corail Jalouse, Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Lipstick (No. 33) Rose Neillia, Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick (No. 16) Orange Impertinent.
One thing led to another. It feels like silk on the lips, truly very hydrating. There is no feathering, even though how buttery these Rouge Volupté lipsticks are. I love the way each color fades into the lips after several hours of wear.
From the Flower Crush 2014 Collection, Corail Jalouse is a petal pink with a very subtle touch of coral, very pretty with heavy eyes, and Rose Neillia is a pink poppy that’s everyday wearable. Orange Impertinent, a gorgeous true coral, is from the Rouge Volupté Shine line that debuted last year. With its color coded tube, you won’t have a hard time finding a lipstick.
Saying goodbye to lippie shopping for now, have to milk each tube for all its worth.
