I bought this YSL Rouge Volupte in Luscious Pink lipstick back in 2011 as part of a birthday treat to myself and since then it has been an absolute fave lippie of mine. The packaging of Rouge Volupte lipsticks are very simple but glamorous with the gold finish which is mainly part of my attraction to the brand. YSL describe Luscious Pink as a ‘muted rose’, which when worn it comes out like a pinkish nude on me. This colour is I wear it practically everyday as it’s such an easy colour to wear.
The Rouge Volupte lipsticks are super creamy and are a dream to apply to the lips but I do find that the wear of the lipsticks are not that great and I do have to reapply it quite a few times during the day. However, as I am a sucker for the YSL beauty products I am happy to overlook that. Considering that I wear this colour daily and reapply quite a few times during the day I have found that the lipstick has lasted me a very long time and I still haven’t reached the bottom yet.
Luscious Pink swatched on my hand
The Rouge Volupte lipsticks are definitely a luxury item as it is quite expensive for a lipstick priced at £24.50 each (it was £22 back when I bought it). However, I do think the positives of the product outwigh the expensive price, such as it being pigmented and very creamy. It’s one of those things that I am happy to spend money on as a treat to myself once in a while and I cant wait to get another colour to add to my tiny collection which currently stands at two Rouge Volupte’s.
