YSL Rouge Volupte Shine - Corail In Touch

It's love. I've honestly never seen a more beautiful lipstick in my life. So beautiful in fact, that I photographed it as soon as I got it. And couldn't bare to swatch it - sorry! Anyway, my lovely Mum bought this for me in Duty Free, on the way home from Venice during the summer. And it's fair to say, I was more than excited for the 25th of December!

I think we should address the packaging first of all. Have you ever seen a prettier shade of gold? Oh, and the coloured middle is genius. But, it does mean that I'm now lusting after a few more shades to create a little array of shades. The bullet twists up beautifully and the lid clicks perfectly. Can you tell I'm besotted?

As for texture - this feels really light on the lips, and glides on, oh, so smoothly. This also has a really subtle fruity scent, which I think I definitely prefer to the typical vanilla of most other lipsticks!

Corail In Touch - number 14, is a gorgeous, bright pinky coral perfect for spring/summer! Plus, the fact you can apply it both sheerly and built up to an opaque shade, makes it that little bit better!

Have you tried any products from YSL?
What do you think of the packaging?



  1. If I bought a ysl lipstick, I think I would probably choose this one, beautiful. The packaging is gorgeous too!
