On a recent trip to the Trafford centre I saw YSL were doing an exclusive special edition YSL lipstick package. You purchase 2 of their Rouge pur couture lipsticks and get interchangeable limited edition lids to go on them, all presented in a YSL box for no extra cost. I thought they looked super classy so decided to treat myself.
I simply love YSL not only for their luxury brand and packaging but their products are great too. I’m a massive fan of their Rouge Volupte shine lipsticks as I love a more balmy feel and a glossy look without wearing a sticky gloss, the only problem is they don’t last well on the lips, however they do look fab when you pull one out your bag to reapply.
I purchased 2 lipsticks in the shades 66 Bois de rose and 17 Rose dahlia and chose the lids in a nude and gold snake print finish and also the red and gold snake print finish.
These not only look amazing but are a great handbag must-have.
The Rouge pur couture lipsticks are available in 43 shades.
I purchased 2 shades, 66 Bois de rose, a deeper neutral colour with a slight purple tinge, looks slightly less intense in person than it does in the picture, I have quite a bit of natural colour in my lips so feel I can’t wear anything too nude this has a similar tone to my Chanel lipstick in Mademoiselle.
I also chose 17 Rose dahlia, a beautiful bright corally-red, again slightly less intense in person which makes this a very wearable shade, not too intense for a brighter day look.
As you can see below these are both beautiful, wearable shades and a great addition to my personal collection.
YSL claims “an SPF 15 moisturising formula which saturates lips with intense, stay-true colour and medium to full coverage, with a radiant, satin lipstick finish” and I would have to agree, if I go for a full cover lipstick I much prefer a satin finish and these offer just that, a comfortable wear yet great colour pay off.
Again YSL claims a “up to 6 hours” wear, like with all lip products it depends what you are doing whilst wearing them, eating, drinking…kissing all will affect the longevity. I am very pleased with the longevity of this product though and would highly recommend.
As with all YSL products their packaging is super classy, whether you buy the standard lipsticks in their sleek gold packaging or these limited edition ones they both look amazing when you pull them out to reapply.
Here is a close up of the 2 complimentary special edition YSL lipstick package lids I chose.
I love these lipsticks, a great product, with a great finish, available in an amazing shade range, in fabulous packaging…what’s not to love!
These retail at £28 and I am happy to pay that, it maybe a little out of someone’s budget but I would definitely suggest putting it on your gift list.
