Recently my parents returned from their holidays, and brought me back this little beauty from duty free!
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine #19 Fuchsia in Rage: £24.00 -
It's my first YSL lipstick in the very luxurious packaging, it's just beautiful.
It looks very purple in the tube, but on the lips it comes off as a purple toned fuchsia pink. It's comparable to MAC's Girl About Town lipstick or Revlon's lip butter in Lollipop, but neither are just as purple toned.
The Rouge Volupte Shine finish isn't terribly long wearing, but truthfully I was half expecting that. I think the original Rouge Volupte lipsticks might have longer wear time. The shine formula seems more moisturising and well, shinier! It also has a nice fruity scent that disappears soon after applying. I can only compare from getting swatch happy at the YSL counter in the past, but thats the impression I'm getting.
Overall I really do love this, the packaging is just to die for. But if I'm being honest, if you're going to splash £24.00 on one, I'd go for the original formula as you might get more wear time from those! Fuchsia in Rage is an incredible colour though.
