I recently scored this little baby from my mum after she went on a trip overseas. I have been leeming this particular lipstick for a long time now after seeing this particular shade featured on PS It's Vida's blog numerous times.
|YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in No 30 Faubourg Peach|
First of all can I just say this has got to be the most gorgeous packaging of a lipstick I have seen yet. It's gold and shiny and has the colour of the lipstick in between gold detailing in the middle of the tube. It is also quite heavy which I like in a high-end lipstick as it adds to the expensive feeling.
Once opened I have discovered a flaw in the packaging. When winding the lipstick up and down I have noticed that some of the product gets caught around the sides of the tube. However overall I love the packaging. The lid closes tight as well so you won't have lipstick all over the inside of your handbag. Not something you want, especially when it's an expensive lippy!

The lipstick does have a scent to it. For anyone that is a candy junkie it smells a little bit like those sugared peach lollies that are shaped as a heart. Nope just me? Ok haha well it smells like peach candy. The scent does tend to linger a little bit so those sensitive to smells might not like this. I am not sure if all the colours have the same scent as I thought it a bit coincidental that it smelled like those peach lollies and it was a peach colour.

The formula of this lipstick is very creamy. It goes on very easily, however doesn't always go on evenly straight out of the tube. For a more even application I recommend adding a couple of layers and patting them in with your finger each time or using a lip brush. Due to the creaminess of the formula it doesn't last the longest time on your lips. On my lips it lasted just over an hour before I had to re-apply. (However, I tend to rub my lips together frequently so that could contribute) But when the lipstick is this gorgeous I don't mind whipping it out to re-apply every now and then.
The colour of this particular shade is a light peachy colour. It doesn't have any shimmer but due to the creamy formula it does have a sheen to it. It has great pigmentation and shows up nicely on my lips which are quite pink naturally.
YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks retail for $55AUD in Australia and $34.00USD in the US. However you can buy them currently on Strawberry Net for $33.50AUD with free shipping :)
And the downside to swatching and taking photos outside? If you drop it it gets a little grassy!

Have you tried these lippies? What's your opinion??
