Silky, Sensual, Radiant Lipstick: YSL Rouge Volupte - Luscious Pink (Swatch)

Dazzling colours and a pleasure to applyAll the magic, refinement and know-how of Yves Saint Laurent can be found in this lipstick which combines pleasure of the senses, bright colours and total comfort. Both light yet rich, its creamy texture becomes fluid on contact with the lips for a pleasant feeling and incredible smooth-on qualities.

My first purchase from YSL, I blame Gaea for this :D She had done a post on IMBB showing off her YSL lipstick, and when I met her I just had to drag her over to the YSL counter and pick this up for myself. See, its totally her fault, right?
  • Superbly pigmented..the slightest swipe deposits so much colour..I am still wow.
  • Is creamy smooth.
  • This particular colour is perhaps a tad too bright for me, but I still like it :D :D The swatch on my hand is what it actually looks most times more than the swatch on my lips.
  • The design of the case shows a bit of the colour with the logo over it. The colour outside is exactly what is the colour of the lipstick.
  • SPF 15 
Shade: Luscious Pink (23)
And these are the swatches. The colour looks so dull on my lips, in the photo, but is actually just as bright. My camera just wasn't able to capture it properly, probably because it was a cloudy day :-(

  14. excellent color rads ... ur lips are amazing dear:)
    stick to pinks it brings out the color .. and stay away from browns its bhabhi's color and pink is hmmmmmm the IT color

  15. Brown - Bhabhi colour??? Hahahahahaa...wait till I catch you in some browns...I shall eat your head then :D :D :D Okay seriously though, ya I know...some of those typical browns..I never get those though :D

  16. hahahaaha i dont have a single brown though ???
    i think
    let me check ....

  17. I don't trust will have some brown..may not be bhabhi brown, though.

  18. Wow..they look so luscious...especially the luscious pink..Loved the packaging and the colors!! :D

  19. err....Every pic shows different colors, I thought there were 2 different shades!! :P

  20. I know Cali..but the swatch on the hand..the first one is what it looks like mostly in real life :D :D :D just shows different colours in the photos for some strange reason!!

  21. You have velvet teddy or some brown whose name is teddy Rashmi!!

    But you know wht Rads...I agree with Rashmi....I myself used to love browns but that was only until I bght my first pink lipstick and after that my poor brown lipsticks are totally ignored...dont like wearing brown at all now...they make u look so dull :(

  22. Yipppppeeeeeeeeee Rashmi got caught :D :D I am sure, though, her brown will be some nice brown...I think it just depends on the shade.

  23. I refuse to comment **all your greenery has transferred on me * :smug*
