YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick 15 Corail Intuitive

Yves Saint Laurent is a high end brand I've always been in awe of, Chanel doesn't phase me, Dior comes close I admit but YSL just seems so classy and sleek and basically everything I want to be (I say slumped in my Juicy tracksuit munching on a rich tea!)
I have their Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious Mascara and since first purchasing their Touché Éclat I've never looked back. I think every new mum should be given one of these babies when they leave the hospital!


 I've wanted to add a YSL lipstick to my collection for as long as I can remember. The packaging just screams luxury and it is one of those products that really feels like  a treat. I knew I wanted one, I just had to chose a colour!

£25 might seem a lot for a lipstick but I had an e-voucher to spend at House of Fraser and a little piece of it was going to purchase my lovely gold tube of gorgeousness. Vouchers aren't real money, so it's ok!

I wanted a colour I would get a lot of use out of, I would hate for it just to end up sitting unloved in my make-up bag case and only saved for special occasions. 
I find nude shades can be very hit-and-miss and without trying it on and I didn't want to chose a colour that wouldn't suit me so I ruled out an everyday nude, just to be safe. Reds aren't exactly day to day wear for me so it was a choice between pinks and corals. 
'Ever Hip' is one of my favourite MAC lipsticks, it's a  pinky coral that is really wearable. It doesn't offer too much colour but enough to add a little pop to an every day look. I decided something like this was what I wanted from my first YSL lipstick.


After a bit of online research (seriously, what did we do without blogs with swatches of these things? No wonder everyone's make up looked awful in the early 2000's...) I opted for the Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick in shade 15 -Corail Intuitive.

When it arrived I was as excited as I expected to be and even more impressed with the colour. A perfect day to day coral that compliments my skin tone. It's so creamy and stays put, it may be pricy but you get what you pay for -admittedly a lot of what you pay for is the gold casing but the product itself is definitely great quality.


I feel ever so Victoria Beckham (I should have said Audrey Hepburn or someone classic there shouldn't I..?) when ever I pull out the lipstick to apply, even if it is on a crowded train to Victoria to meet friends for Nandos! 

This is my first YSL lipstick, but I tell you now, it won't be my last!!

What other colours do you recommend?
