YSL Rouge Volupte Shine '06 Pink in Devotion'

Hello Everyone :)
Today I have a review and some swatches of a beautiful YSL lipstick featured in my last beauty haul!
So, I've been eyeing up these lipsticks for a long while now after seeing countless reviews. I had a £10 boots voucher I was planning to put towards either a YSL or Chanel lipstick, but after I spent it on something else (Origins Ginzing - review soon!) the thought went out of my mind. That was until I was out shopping and just as we were about to leave I found myself at the YSL counter at John Lewis, I managed to narrow it down to two and then when I finally decided on this shade, it was out of stock! Typical. So I went along down to Boots and luckily they had it! So it was a very spontaneous purchase but very worth it.

These lipsticks are famed for their amazing formula and when I swatched these for the first time I definitely got why these are so coveted. The formula is butter soft and glides on so easily and smoothly, it seriously is a dream to apply. Even though these are so silky smooth that doesn't mean they are not pigmented, the swatch is only one swipe! Despite being pigmented, these don't have the longest lasting power due to being so creamy but they don't have the worst either, they last roughly about two hours but they do leave a stain so all is not lost! The colour is a juicy deep pink which I love! It's in between a pink and a berry and I think it is perfect for the colder months if you're not quite brave enough to wear a deep, intense colour. It can also be dabbed on for a softer, subtle look or built up to be brighter so is very versatile. I have enjoyed wearing this lipstick so much and will be wearing it lots and lots more, it's also brilliant as in Winter dry lips and lipstick doesn't mix well so you can rest assured this lipstick will not dry your lips out or highlight slightly dry bits you may have.

Overall, this is such a stunning shade and has the best formula I have ever tried. Yes, these are definitely a luxury item but in my eyes they are worth every penny and worth splashing out for a treat. I've got my eye on 05 which is a deeper pink and I think will be my winter lipstick so I may have to have a little 'to me, from me' treat!

Do you have a YSL lipstick, or want one? What do you think?

  2. Such a lovely shade! xx

  3. I love everything about YSL products - the packaging, the formulas, the quality - it's all very glamorous. This shade is very pretty and I'd love to try it! Xx

  4. I've yet to purchase any YSL products! They are, in my opinion, the epitome of "luxury product". Such gorgeous packaging make me want to display more than actually use them! Maybe when I'm back to work and making tips I'll splurge on a Glossy Stain, hmmm.

  5. Such a gorgeous color!

  6. It sure does look like the perfect transition colour from autumn to winter AND GAH THAT PACKAGING there's nothing that screams luxury quite as much as YSL ^_^
