Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipstick | Review

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipstick £26 - To say that I went a bit High End Lipstick crazy over Christmas of 2015 would be an understatement and it seems that it can be rather addictive! Now I've managed to string out these reviews for a while so I haven't actually purchased anything new since January of this year however I am still so glad that I did. This particular one was inspired by Anna Saccone of the Sacconejolys as she's worn it in a number of her own YouTube videos and just generally whilst on the vlogs and it looks so sophisticated. I'm quite conscious that I'm about to become a mother and that I still look rather young for my age so don't want appear as though I'm trying too hard, instead I'm embracing the nudes and the reds in a bid to make myself look more mature. I was a little hesitant with this formula as usually if it's not 100% matte then it won't stay put on my lips but this lasted through three straight YouTube videos not long ago and can cling on all morning. It does need topping up after lunch or any other meal but that's perfectly fine with me. The description says that it should be silky in texture which I think is the perfect way to describe this lipstick, it's not so sheer that you can barely see it but also isn't matte either. I rarely purchase sheer lipsticks as I just feel like they do nothing and come off way too easily but then my collection was becoming 99% matte so I needed a change. The colour (01 Nude Beige) is a really pretty nude colour, it has slightly blue undertones so really suits my skin tone and goes with every outfit imaginable. The thing that I love most about this lipstick is that with the combination of the colour and the formula, I can quickly slick it on and not have to worry about having to apply it too perfectly or whether or not it will match the rest of my look, I know that I can pop it on and go and still look nicely finished.
