My birthday was mid April and I was so happy to buy
myself an early birthday gift :)
I originally bought the Yves Saint Laurent
Volupte Lipstick in Rose Paris #27
and my when I went shopping with my mom
I found the one I originally wanted which was
Lingerie Pink #7 but my mom didn't want
to get it for me that day... but on my
birthday she surprised me with Lingerie Pink!
WHAT A GOOD MOMMA :)
I am loving these lipsticks but I wanted
to do a detailed review for you all :)
What Sephora Says:
What it is:An extremely smooth and creamy lipstick with a formula that transforms into a fluid veil of radiant color when it touches the lips.
What it does:One of these Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE VOLUPTÉ Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15 is sure to be your new signature color: they're sensual, radiant, and strong. With shades that drench the lips with densely pigmented color and a unique color-shine complex, lips are visibly smoothed, plumped, and radiant with luminous satin color.
What else you need to know:It's made with a long-lasting and highly comfortable formula that contains SPF 15.
#27 is described as a bright pinky coral.
#7 is described as a light creamy pink.
What I Say:
These lipsticks are the epitomes of a lipstick.
That statement pretty much sums it ha ha.
The formulation is quite amazing, both lipsticks glide on like butter.
And that is an understatement, they are the smoothest lipsticks
I have ever used. They feel moisturizing, nourishing, and hydrating.
The pigmentation is also mind blowing! I need hardly any to
saturate my lips with gorgeous color.
Both lipsticks have the same incredible formulation and they also
have a distinct taste that reminds me of KIWIS for some odd reason.
The lasting power of these lipsticks is also amazing, I apply it once in
the morning and the color never truly fades away... I only tap on a bit more midday.
However, they can get a little bit drying after wearing them for about 5
or 6 hours so I just apply a bit of lip balm over top and I am ready to go! ;)
One thing I am worried about is using them up to fast because of the
buttery texture but if I have to repurchase I will :D
Rose Paris #27 is a beautiful true coral color and I picked it
because I do not have a color similar to those in my collection.
Whenever I apply it, it instantly brightens up my face and is
a major lipstick statement. I think this color would look gorgeous on
most skin tones but especially on medium to dark skin tones so I
am really excited to get a tan this summer!
Lingerie Paris #7 is a beautiful pastel baby pink with blue undertones.
It definitely makes my teeth look whiter and softens up the look I
am wearing. The swatches do not do these lipsticks justice! I definitely
recommend you check them out at your local Sephora!
The packaging just
The gold tubes are gorgeous and I love how each
individual tube has its coordinating color to the lipstick inside.
They are a bit heavier than usual but I don't mind.
I feel so fancy when I pull it out to reapply ;)
One thing that does bother me about the packaging is that
the tube doesn't include the name of the lipstick only the box does...
I find that a bit odd :s
The price is also something I am not fond of but
I am welling to shell out the whopping $34.00
for this amazing lipstick.
You receive .12 oz of product..
(which is about .02 more then a MAC lipstick)
Overall, I am definitely in love with these lipsticks
and I am really wanting to get the #17 Red Muse :)
Packaging: 4.5/5 I wish the tube included the name.
Formulation: 4.5/5 They get slightly dry throughout the day.
Price: 4/5 You get what you pay for and these are AMAZING!
But they are costly...
Overall: 4.5/5 I definitely recommend these lipsticks because
they are perfect besides some minor details.
