Glam Morena: Review: YSL Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick - 25 Soft Beige.

Review: YSL Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick - 25 Soft Beige.

One of the most luxurious items that I own is a lipstick from Yves Saint Laurent. It's the YSL Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick in #25 Soft Beige. This is one of the biggest splurges on a lipstick that I've ever done. So was it worth it? YES!


Description: An object of desire, this award-winning lipstick is wrapped in a romantic, elegant gold case that exudes luxury. Each signature shade saturates lips in captivating color that’s intensely pigmented, and imparts an irresistible glossy shine. The long-lasting, comforting formula is highlighted with a unique Color-shine Complex that leaves lips visibly smoother, plumper and more radiant. Light, silky texture smoothes on a veil of satiny, sensual color that’s altogether alluring. Companion mirror on top of case ensures easy application any time. SPF 15.

Retail Price: $34.00

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick - 25 Soft Beige

I would describe Soft Beige as a neutral cinnamon brownish nude.

PROS:
  • Highly pigmented
  • Contains SPF 15
  • Glides on smoothly
  • Very creamy formula
  • Gives a glossy shine
  • Has a pleasant scent
  • Leaves your lips moisturized
  • Includes a mirror on the packaging

  • CONS:
  • Very pricey
  • Packaging is kind of heavy

  • Overall Thoughts: This is one splurge that I do not regret at all! I'm so impressed with the formula of the YSL Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick. It's a really creamy, smooth formula. The pigmentation is great. What you see in the tube is what you see on your lips with just one application. It glides on so smoothly and leaves a natural glossy sheen to your lips. It also contains SPF 15 and you definitely want lip products with that. I also love the scent of this lipstick, which is a sweet watermelon smell.

    The gold packaging is just gorgeous to look at. It comes with a tiny mirror as well. One of the downsides (though nothing horrible) is that the packaging is rather heavier than other lipsticks that I own.

    Of course the other obvious con is the price. These retail for $34.00 each. This product is nice to have, but definitely not a must-have in my opinion. So consider your budget and decide if this is worth the splurge before you purchase it. If you do end up purchasing one I know you won't be disappointed!

    10. I love the scent and shades of YSL lipsticks, they are the only luxury brand with very bold and daring shades. I am a total nude lover, but since i got a bold pink from ysl I dare to step out of my comfort zone every now and then.

      Love this shade!
