I really need to get my lipstick obsession under control...When I saw the new YSL spring collection and the new Volupté Shines pop up on the Feelunique website, I couldn't resist ordering a few items.
The new Spring collection didn't really impress me, except for one lipstick that I just couldn't get out of my system, namely the YSL Volupté Sheer Candy in N°12 Framboise Craquante.
Most of you are probably thinking that it's not a very spectacular and/or unique color, and I completely agree but there was something that really made me want to buy this lipstick (most probably the gorgeous packaging). Basically, it's just an ordinary tinted lip balm with a hefty price tag. It looks beautiful on the lips but since there are at least 100 cheaper dupes out there, I certainly wouldn't repurchase it.
Regarding the new YSL Volupté Shine lipsticks, I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical when Tiffany from willworkformakeup.blogspot.com introduced me to this new range. In fact, I was never a big fan of the original Rouge Volupté formula, which was (and still is) way too slippery and creamy for my taste. But since she reassured me that this lipstick formula was completely different, I decided to give them a go and I don't regret it :)
They are still very pigmented but they're not as cakey and slippery as the original Rouge Voluptés. On the contrary, they are smooth, nourishing, glossy and leave a beautiful stain on the lips. Would I repurchase them? Most definitely :)
