YSL Rouge Volupté Silky-Sensual Radiant Lipstick in (01) Nude Beige

If you're a lipstick sucker (like me), then the YSL Rouge Volupté Silky-Sensual Radiant Lipstick range would not be something unfamiliar to you. And if you've yet to own one, keep on reading as I'll share my views and opinions about the YSL Rouge Volupté, and whether or not it is worth the buy.  

What made me thought of getting the YSL Rouge Volupté Silky-Sensual Radiant Lipstick in the shade Nude beige (01) was because there was one time I was desperately looking for the perfect nudish-pink lipstick. Through youtube videos and blogs, I saw tones of people raving about this particular shade. Besides, the packaging of the YSL Rouge Volupté has an award-winning, to-die-for metal casing. As it is quite costly, after much consideration, I decided to get one for myself.

YSL Rouge Volupté Silky-Sensual Radiant Lipstick in Nude beige (01) 

Where to buy?
Any YSL counters. But I bought mine in Singapore's Changi airport.

Price ?
Actually my boyfriend was the one who got it for me, he remembered it was around $50 sgd

Absolutely perfect/classy/stunning lipstick casing
This is by far the most beautiful lipstick case I've ever had in my lipstick collection. The perfect gold with the YSL logos around it is just too hot to handle.

Smells fantastic 
Absolutely love the scent of the lipstick. The super fruity scent just lights up my mood whenever I apply it. It smells beyond amazing, trust me.

Super creamy
Very easy to apply.

The major downside of the lipstick: will bleed into lip lines
Because it's super creamy, it bleeds easily into my lip lines and it appears very streaky and accentuates the lip lines, which is not very presentable :/ It happened quite a few times and I was so disappointed with the product until recently I went to google how to prevent it. The following tips is my life saver: Apply a nude-colour lip liner all over your lips prior to applying the lipstick, I swear, it works like magic. No more streaky lips anymore! 

More suitable for tan-skinned girls
Because I am an Asian I have yellowish-skin, I feel that this shade doesnt really compliment my skin tone. However, I bet it'd look fantastic on really fair / tanned girls.

Would I repurchase?
If I have the money, of course I would. If you've not own one of the YSL Rouge Volupté Silky-Sensual Radiant Lipstick, I think it is okay to invest in a shade that you really love. But because it is so pricey, I personally feel that there is no need to spurge on, and owning one or two is already sufficient. I still feel that there are cheaper yet equally good lipsticks available in the market.
