Happy Lippie Day! Today I will be covering something on the more on the high end scale compared to what I normally feature on Kinky Curly Me. I'm not cheap Kinks but I love me a good sale, back when Sephora had their VIB Rouge sale I took full advantage of my 20% off. I have been wanting a Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipstick ever since I spotted the beautiful gold packaging in Sephora. I am a sucker for packaging.
I just couldn't see myself spending $36 on a lipstick. What if I didn't like it? What if I barely used it? What if I lost it? Man did I think of 100 reasons why I shouldn't spend the money. Now when the Sephora sale came around I said I would pick up something I wouldn't normally indulge in. Thats my story on how I ended up with two YSL lipsticks and wanting more.
YSL Rouge Volupte Lipsticks are available in about 10 different shades at the moment. I do think that their shade range does change some are added or taken away. You can always check Sephora, other YSL retailers or the YSL website to see what shades are available to you. The shades I have seen rage from pale nudes to beautiful berry.
Kinks I am a matte lippie lover but somedays I just want something that is a lot more effortless, really grab & go, no prep time or lip scrub needed. YSL has created the perfect formula for everyday & lazy day wear. I don't feel like I need a full face of makeup to feel gorgeous wearing this lipstick.
I am in LOVE with this lipstick it has to be the creamiest, most pigmented glossy lipstick I have tried to date. This lipstick glides on, no tugging to your lips as all. I kind off feel like the color just melts onto your lips kind of the way butter melts in a warm pan. The formula on these leave your lips feeling hydrated. If your a person with dry chapped lips looking for color & protection I would recommend you pick one up.
For a lipstick with a glossy finish these have a pretty good amount of staying time, usually around 4 to 5 hours depending on eating. Another plus to these lipsticks is as they wear down they do leave a beautiful stain that in no way makes your lips look dry.
