#AmericanBeauty | YSL Rouge Volupté & Rouge Volupté Shine

YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in 19 Fuchsia in Rage | YSL Rouge Volupté in 9 Rose Caresse

This was one, or two, purchases that i had absolutely no intentions of buying before i went away. I had a long list of things that i knew i wanted to get, but it wasn't until i was in Sephora with the YSL stand in front of me that i decided i couldn't leave without one. Or two.

I have forever dreamed of owning a YSL lipstick because honestly, they're the most beautiful product in the beauty universe and they are definitely going to be displayed rathe than being stuffed in a draw. It was a real struggle with deciding what colour to go for. I was stuck between going for an everyday colour, that i knew i could get a lot of wear out of, or something that was a little brighter, prettier and special. So with a little persuasion from my mum, i decided to go with one of each - as a little holiday treat. They were actually a fair amount cheaper in the states than they are here, so i could just about justify it!

It turned out that the two shades i was deciding between were also two different formulas; the Rouge Volupté and the Rouge Volupté Shine. As you can see above, Fuchsia in Rage is the Shine and Rose Caresse a Rouge Volupté. The Shine lipstick is, as it sounds, a little more glossy with a shine to the finish whereas the other is a lot more creamy and has a far more creamy/satin finish. Despite their differing formulas they're both nicely opaque, which is great, as well as both being very moisturising and glide on beautifully - they're very easy to apply.

Fuchsia in Rage is not something i would normally pick up and if i hadn't swatched it, it certainly would not have even hit my radar. In the bullet it appears a bright violet purple colour but when applied it's actually a beautiful pinky purple, totally different to anything i already own but an absolutely stunning colour none the less. It's so glossy and pretty, and i'm so glad i decided to give it a go. Rose Caresse on the other hand is a wonderfully creamy, satin nude pink kind of colour. As i've mentioned before, nudes are definitely not my thing but these sort of dusky pink colours suit my skintone nicely and work for me as a nude colour. It's one of those pesky 'your lips but better' colours bloggers always rave about, me included.

I chose to talk about these products later because i knew we'd be getting close to the Christmas season. If you have a beauty loving individual in your life, then these would make a more than beautiful Christmas gift. Otherwise, why not treat yourself this season? I have no regrets bringing these home, they reach all my expectations and more - you really do get what you pay for, here.
