YSL's Rouge Volupte Lipstick

YSL's Rouge Volupte Lipstick is everything you would want your lipstick to be like - I know this is true for me anyway.
At first, I was reluctant to get this. The most expensive lipstick I've purchased was around the £12 border and that was by Clinique. This lipstick was almost double that price. At £22, it sure doesn't come cheap. But the most important thing I wanted was to get the quality which matched the cost of the product. It's no secret that YSL has always been famous for their lipsticks. They advertise these glamourously, almost as if comparing them to candies.
In the end I got this and tested it on the same day. I tested it about 4 times now I'd say (the pictures were taken after I tested this!).

I like its packaging. It's very simple yet sophisticated too.

Holding it, you can feel its weight distinctly in your palms. It's quite heavy for a lipstick and feels very well made. This surprised me and added to the enjoyment of putting it on.

This is the part which makes the lipstick stand out. I'm liking this! It's so simple and bears the logo of YSL. Chic and fun =) - I will be keeping it when it's finished.

I wanted a peachy colour because it's something summery and light. Something that wasn't too red, not too pink and not too light or dark. I see it as a type of pastel colour.

Plus it has SPF 15, which is a bonus.

This lasts for hours. For me it lasted 7-8 hours (without eating or drinking that is). But even when I ate or drank, I could still see its colour there. Most lipsticks in the past were completely erased! So that was impressive.
What I liked most about it is that it gives you the exact colour you see in the lipstick. It doesn't suddenly become too dark or light on application. This is a defining strength for me when it comes to this product. It makes one feel like there is no 'gimmic' - what you see is what you get! ^.^

So I do think at £22, yes it it expensive, but so worth it! If this is the only lipstick I were to have right now, I'd be happy with it.

P.S. I forgot to mention. It smells fabulous - just like candy but the scent isn't overpowering at all and it sure does not smell cheap or tacky. It's very girly! Plus because it is very pigmented, you can skip colouring in your lips with a lipliner (if some of you do that) and rely on this lipstick to do its magic on you.

Thank you for the link. I watched this documentary and enjoyed it! I learnt a lot from it and it was really fascinating!
If it is still on iPlayer (maybe Youtube will have it?) I'd recommend this to scent-lovers =)
