Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipstick

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipstick

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipstick ($40.00) comes in a variety of 18 shades. Carrying a wide range of colour from pale to bright, beige to berry. Rouge Voluptes are my favorite lipsticks, ever! This formula is to die for! It is extremely comfortable on your lips, glides on so smoothly and is so heavily pigmented that the tiniest amount goes a long, long way. As for the packaging, it is absolutely beautiful and definitely beats ANY other lipstick in terms of aesthetics. I’d buy it just for packaging…seriously.


# 17 Red Muse is a bright medium red that looks neutral towards warm in the tube. On my lips it applies slightly cooler. Perfect for a sophisticated look where you want either the lips to be the focal point or if you want full on drama for the evening.

#9 Caress Pink is a warm light/medium pink that’s not too bright. This particular shade has a satin finish, so it’s not as glossy as some of the other shades I’ve tried. It can definitely be worn during the day (to school, work, weekend, etc) but it can be worn for a night out as well.

#29 Opera Rose is a beautiful neutral mid tone pink. I think it’s a very wearable shade that looks great on all skin tones and can be worn for both casual and special occasions as well.

The lipsticks are so rich in color and hue, and they were spot-on in terms of what you see is what you get. Have you tried Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipstick, if so what are your thoughts?


Red, Red Wine

Trend Alert!

Red-wine-lovers, this beauty trend is for you! At New York Fashion Week Fall 2014, deep berry and wine shades were being sported all over the runway.

If your daring and want to wear this lip just keep a few things in mind –

Finding the right shade is key; it all depends on your skin tone but lipsticks such as Mac’s Diva & Nars Scarlet Empress are pretty universal and compliment many skin tones.

If you have thin lips, a dark lipstick could make them appear even smaller. So start with a sheer stain and use a lip pencil to fill out the lip ever so slightly.

The key to wearing a berry lip is to keep the rest of the face fresh and glowing. Use a sheer foundation and concealer and skip powder entirely. Then apply a blush in a complementary shade or even take a simply sheer out the same lip color on cheeks!
