For years I've been wanting to try YSL Lipsticks but the price has been holding me back. The most recent Sephora sale I decided to give in and get one. This was my only haul from that sale.
Product Review: Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Rouge Volupte Lipstick in #1 Nude Beige
Where to purchase: YSL counters, Sephora, and yslbeautyus.com
Price: $34 for 0.14 oz/4 g
Made in France
Description from the website: 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 smooths on a veil of satiny, sensual color that's altogether alluring.
I just smelled the lipstick and it has a slight rosy smell. It smells good! The weird thing is I don't recall a smell in the past when I applied the lipstick. Now that I'm applying it, I smell it.
Now for my overall opinion... If you're looking for a shimmery or matte lipstick, this color isn't it. It's very creamy all around from the look to the texture. It's easy to apply and if you pluck your lips together, there will be some movement. You will have to reapply your lipstick. For that reason, I do recommend plucking your lips together with this lipstick. Since the lipstick is very creamy, I do have to agree with the description it feels like silk while on your lips.
I've read other reviews that it shows fine lines on your lips. I can see that happening if you have very deep lines or your lips aren't hydrated. For that reason, I recommend you hydrate your lips if you're going to use this lipstick. It's not the most moisturizing lipstick, but then again it's not the most driest either. The lipstick lasted a good 2-3 hours depending on how hydrated my lips were.
* YSL; a brand you hear great things about.
