{Beauty Review} YSL Rouge Volupté Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick

The Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick with SPF 15 are a cult favorite among beauty lovers and I for one have been on the brink of trying the product out for several years now. The price is a bit steep at $34 a pop, but after hearing such amazing reviews and obsessing over its beautiful packaging for quite some time, I figured I’d give it a go.

 

 
The product is described on Sephora as “an extremely smooth and creamy lipstick with a formula that transforms into a fluid veil of radiant color when it touches the lips.” I have to agree with the description as this lipstick is hands down one of the creamiest formulas I have ever used. It literally glides onto the lips with full, opaque color coverage.
If you are prone to chapped lips, then this is definitely the lipstick for you. It is moisturizing and feels almost like you are wearing a gloss. And best of all, the color stays put and lasts for several hours despite its creamy formula.  

 

I picked out shade number 13 Peach Passion because it has a coral/peach hue making it perfect for summer. I’m pretty happy with my color choice as this is a great, subtle way to wear a bright lipstick color to work. It is a peachy neutral with just a small pop of color. I find it goes well with just about any look for this season.

This is officially one of my new favorite lipsticks and I find myself reaching for it more often than my MAC lippies. I find the formula works better for an every day, no maintenance lip product and I am obsessed with the packaging. The gorgeous lipstick puts a smile on my face every time I use it. What can I say, I’m a sucker for pretty packaging.

 

And since I love this lipstick so much, I’ve already got my list started for the next shades to try out! Beige Ultimate, a mauve taupe; Opera Rose, a vibrant rose pink; and Provocative Pink, a bright magenta pink, are all striking an interest with me lately.
I definitely plan on trying out more shades and despite the heavy price tag of $34 each, I still find it to be worth the money since these are great every day lipsticks that I plan on getting a lot of use out of.

    I bought one in Faberge Peach after reading the great reviews, and while it was expensive, it was also very worth it! For me, I feel like the lipstick sorta melts onto your lips when you apply it, which was amazing considering my usually dry lips.

    I'd love to try another shade, and Opera Rose as well as Peach Passion both look gorgeous 😀
