An Ode To YSL Lipsticks




When it comes to splurging on luxury lipsticks, there are a few brands that I turn to and YSL (or Saint Laurent Paris?) is one of them. I’m going to be writing a post on which high end lipsticks are worth the investment and which ones are just a bit meh, but more of that later!

The YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks are just gorgeous from the packaging down to the formula and colour selection of the lipsticks. They are so moisturising on the lips as they contain hyaluronic acid, have great pigmentation, feel absolutely weightless, are long-lasting and contain SPF 15 – what more could one want in a lipstick? There’s such a large range of colours available so there truly is something for everyone. Finally, the packaging is just divine! It genuinely brings me joy to pull this out of my purse for touch ups on the go!


The lipstick pictured above is one of the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks in no. 19 Fuchsia In Rage. These lipsticks are slightly glossier and sheerer on the whole. This colour looks quite purple in the bullet but comes out as more of a fuchsia pink. It’s quite a cool-toned colour so it looks great on fair skins, but equally as great on warmer skin tones as it lifts the sallowness. Since it’s a blue-toned pink it also makes the teeth look extra white! The gloss disappears over a few hours but the stain of the lipstick remains on the lips all day. They’re also quite buildable as you can apply a thin layer for a sheer wash of colour or apply a few layers and really go to town with the colour intensity! If you want to see what it looks like on, then click here. One of these lipsticks will set you back £25 but in my opinion, they are so worth the investment if you’re in the mood to splurge!
