I am glad to hear the news that YSL beauty is coming to Singapore real real soon! I really can’t wait to see YSL’s gorgeous counter in Singapore. But before that, I am going to reveal some of my recent YSL purchase in DFS Changi airport. I have never owned any YSL lipsticks yet because I think most of the lipstick packaging is too gold. However once I spotted YSL Rouge Volupte range, I know I have to have one 🙂 It was not difficult for me to choose the color from this range as the first time I saw this lipstick range, I have spotted few lipsticks that I want. Eventually I pick #7 Pink Lingerie.
Judging from its packaging, this lipstick has one of the best design. As much as I love Chanel product, I would say YSL Rouge Volupte has much better design than Chanel’s lipstick. The YSL logo in the middle shows how elegant this brand is, it also shows the exclusivity of the brand. Usually I don’t like YSL’s gold packaging but this time, I am in love with it. The gold color matches very well with that sweet pink color placed as a background of the YSL logo. The packaging is just so pretty and awesome 🙂
Rouge Volupte #7 Pink Lingerie is a very pretty pink color. It looks quite pale on my skintone but I like it. It appears to be very sweet on my lip and in my opinion this lipstick would look best when I apply a heavy smoky brown look. This lipstick will help me to look sweet even in times when I have a heavy eye look.
I picked this because the colors look very sweet when I swatch it on my arm. I didn’t swatch this on my lip because I was in a rush to grab a quick breakfast before my flight. I didn’t know that Rouge Volupte range is the creamiest range from YSL. As much as I love the color, I would say that the texture is way too creamy. It appears to be messy on my lip on my first swipe; to make it looks good, I need to blend it with my finger. On the pictures below, you can see the swatch of this lipstick before and after I blend it.
As you can see in the pictures above, the “before blended” picture shows how creamy this lipstick is. It’s kinda irritating to see that texture on my lip. However after I blend the color with my finger, it looks fine and smooth. This lipstick has a very nice smell. I don’t know how to explain the smell but it smells very sweet and fresh.
This lipstick is a very moisturizing product. My only complain about this lipstick is only the too creamy texture of this lipstick. Although it appears quite messy on first swipe, it should be no problem as I can always blend it with my finger. The color looks cute and I like it so much. This lipstick lasts for about 3-4 hours with me.
I hope this review helps, leave me a comment below about this product 🙂
