YSL Rouge Volupte No 9 | Review

Hello Angels
This week i was mostly sick. Down with fever and a running nose! As a 'pick me up' treat, i took myself for a 'lil shopping spree to Sephora. Shopping at Sephora can be a pain when attacked left, right and center by sales staff and one is not let to try & test products at our own pace.

Luckily for me, i was left unattended this time around. (Perhaps it was my feverish 'Blah' look that drove 'em away!!)  I got 2 lipsticks and 1 blush. I will be reviewing all in separate posts. Here is what i got first...

YSL Rouge Volupte - Silky Radiant Lipstick in No 9 (Rose Caresse) 

Needless to say YSLs Rouge Volupte is extremely famous in the beauty industry and among make up lovers. I somehow never got down to buying them. So this would be my first of many. I say so quite confidently because it is amazeballs! Completely get the rave now. The texture is fantastic and highly moisturizing. The perfect well pigmented yet 'buttery feel' lipstick. Glides onto your lips like a dream. 

Since the lipstick is uber silky and smooth i had my doubts on its lasting power. Fortunately i stand corrected and impressed to say the least. Long lasting is yet another major win win feature with this product. The glossy finish 

Now can i get down to packaging? Look at this beauty. Encased in stunning beautiful gold. The perfect accessory to your vanity table or make up bag. The casing makes the product slightly heavier compared to other lipsticks in the market. I personally like it because the same gives me better grip during application.

My Sephora store had them in 18 shades. But i guess stock differs from region to region. Cost $34. Pricey, yes! But i guarantee this will beat your Mac or any other drugstore favorite. There is no way you can go wrong with this baby...

Do you own one? Or late to party like me? Tell me about one holy grail lippie of yours...

Have a glamorous weekend lovelies
