YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick 02 Sensual Silk : review

YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick - 02 Sensual Silk-4g £23.50 link

"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 smoothes on a veil of satiny, sensual color that’s altogether alluring. SPF 15."

I am finally reviewing the  most beautiful lipstick in my collection- the YSL Rouge Volupte in shade 02 Sensual Silk.
I have been thinking about buying one for ages, but in my opinion it is very expensive and I just couldn't justify paying over £20 for a lipstick.
After months of telling myself no- I finally bought it and went for a gorgeous nude shade.
I actually used a feelunique discount code I got from lovely Estée from
so I paid just over £20.00 for this beaut :)

First of all, the packaging is absolutely beautiful! There is not a lipstick on the market as beautiful as YSL Rouge Volupte and there is no doubt about it.
It has a special place on my dressing table and looks like a piece of art! Amazing!
All brands should consider making their packaging pretty! We all love pretty things, don't we?

The beautiful packaging would mean nothing if the actual lipstick wasn't good, but I can honestly say that the texture and colour payoff of YSL Rouge Volupte is great!
It feels silky smooth on the lips and glides on beautifully. It also hydrates and protects (SPF 15). Perfection!

The shade I got is called Sensual Silk and it is the most beautiful nude shade I have ever seen.
It is a creamy, cool toned pink beige/nude with a satin finish and looks very natural on my lips.

There is only one con- it stays put for 2-3 hours, or if I am drinking tea or eating it comes off easily. 
I guess that most nude lipstick are like that though :) 
Apparently the darker shades stay on the lips for  a bit longer. Sounds logical :)

Overall, I am in love with this lipstick and I am planning to buy more shades  in the future.

PS.Have you seen my blog sale?

  2. Wow looks so gorgeous - love the casing

  3. I don't own a YSL lipstick but I think it's one of those things every girl wants. The packaging is so lush! And the color is something you can use everyday over and over. I love it x

  4. I would buy a YSL lippie just for the gorgeous packaging alone. IF i were to buy one though I would pick a peachy/coral lipppie. :) nonetheless this one is pretty on you.

  5. Wow, this really is gorgeous! I love your pictures, so beautiful ;)

  6. Best lipstick ever! Everything about it is perfect <3

  7. Love it! Now i want one too lol

  8. I have been lusting over a YSL lipstick for soooo long, but only for the packaging haha!! I feel like I have colors all very similar to what YSL offers but the lipstick tubes they put their products in make these oh-so-tempting *__*

  9. I love YSL lipstick packaging and i am glad to hear that you are enjoying this lipstick. I have these, but i really dislike their formulation because i find them too creamy and tend to slide around on my lips but i guess it is really down to personal preference hehe :) Nonetheless, sensual silk is a lovely nude shade and it really suits you xxx

  10. Wow! Beautiful color! I have only one YSL lipstick in peach. I have to say it was well worth it! Maybe I should also do a review on it too! ^_^

  11. I would buy some YSL lipstick if only I had some money :(

  12. So so pretty :)! I'd love to try a YSL lipstick, the packaging alone is amazing xx
