YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick Review
Hi darlings! Hope all of my American readers had an amazing 4th of July. I certainly did! Fireworks are my favorite and this year's show was unbelievably beautiful. I was not disappointed!
On to beauty news....I cannot get enough of Yves Saint Laurent's Rouge Colupte Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick in Fuchsia Stiletto #50. Truly, it's one of my favorite all time lipsticks and I just want to wear it ALL THE TIME. Yes, it's that amazing. Usually I pretty much suck when it comes to lipsticks. I either forget it all together or I reach for the easier solution...my chapstick. So here's the backstory and it's all my Mom's fault. *wink wink*
Last week, my Mom needed to stop by Sephora so she could pick up a new blush and she asked me to come with her. I think you already know that this is a no-no. lol. I will never enter Sephora without coming out with a few things. So I am really proud of myself for only leaving with two things!
I have been absolutely dying to purchase a Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick for over six months now. Every time I browse the YSL section, I always talk myself out of it because the $37 price tag is a difficult one to swallow. But since I have been doing so well with Weight Watchers and my spending habits, I decided to treat myself. My Mom wanted me to go for the shade Nude in Private because it's a warm beige color and you can use it everyday. (There are 30 shades so you are bound to fall in love with at least 2!) I am going to buy that shade eventually but as soon as I saw the vibrant shade of Fuchsia Stiletto, I know that I have fallen deeply in love. It's a very strong, bright, and vibrant pink shade and it's perfect for summer. It's very shiny and goes on your lips like butter. It's really very smooth and moisturizing. The pink shade is such a fun color and so far I have been getting a lot of compliments. Even if you're not into the color I chose, truly this lipstick is uber lux and amazing quality. Let's chat more about it.
This lipstick is oil-infused and is actually made with 65% oil. You can totally tell by the first application because it's really so smooth and slick. The oils help with hydrating your lips and too keep them nice and smooth! According to the Sephora website, "this lipstick also has antioxidants in natural extracts of pomegranate and rosemary reduce the look of fine lines, while candellila resin forms a thin, protective layer to help lock in moisture and magnify color and shine. Mineral pigments provide bright, vibrant color and a melting formula (instead of a solid stick) enabling smoother glide-on application and an ultrafine lightweight film on lips. Hyaluronic acid spheres hydrate and soften lips to help seal in moisture for up to eight hours of hydration." Also, my fave bit…it smells like mangoes! As soon as you open the tube to apply, you just want to eat it!
Tip: I actually don't use lip liner but I do use Bite's Line & Define Lip Primer. It's almost like double stick tape for your lips!! You apply to your lips first and then apply your lipstick. Your lipstick don't transfer onto your teeth! I love bold lipstick shades but they should stay put and not travel! This lip primer is light weight, makes your lips smoother, and is hydrating. It's also parabens, sulfates, and phthalates free. Between the lipstick and primer, your lip color won't be going anywhere for hours!
What's your favorite lipstick?
