YSL Rouge Volupte, the best of the best in lipsticks

It is no surprise that Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Volupté Silky Sensual Radiant Lipsticks are one of the most admired lipsticks on the market – I mean not only are they remarkably luxurious on the lips but their packaging is simply to die for! 

I think when summing up how amazing these lipsticks are, YSL really nailed it perfectly. In one word, they are simply sensuous. They have a creamy and concentrated consistency, which does a fantastic job at keeping the lips moisturized [not to mention looking beautiful of course]; but they also have a good amount of slip to them. The color pay off is fantastic – they leave your lips saturated in pure perfection with perfect coverage and looking incredibly smooth. And in terms of how long they last, I think it depends a lot on the shade but overall, I’d say they compare to the average lipstick.

My personal favorite shade is Lingerie Pink, which is described as a light creamy pink

And now let’s talk about the packaging because, after all, a product’s packaging is as important as the product itself. And let’s face it, I am a real sucker for amazing packaging so let’s get started. A product’s packaging symbolizes what that product stands for and fosters an important user experience that reflects a brand’s image and purpose. Often times, we don’t have time to weigh out the pros and cons of a particular product; instead, we buy based upon the packaging and these lipsticks are definitely going to tickle your visual senses. They are seriously the most beautiful lipsticks I have ever seen. The gold cylindrical tube is embellished with YSL’s beautiful emblem around its perimeter and the result is pure gorgeous-ness! At the very least, they definitely are sure to enhance anyone’s vanity! 

Overall, the YSL Rouge Volupté lipsticks are in a league of their own. Not only is the packaging beyond gorgeous, but the lipsticks themselves are fantastic. Lingerie Pink goes with me wherever I go and you can also find it in so many of my flat lays because it makes a beautiful photo prop. Personally, they are my fav! I definitely recommend them!
