The YSL Rouge Veloupté lipstick has literally been on my wish list forever! I added it to my Christmas list this year and I am now the proud owner of shade 13 Peach Passion. Now lets just speak about the packaging for a minute, how amazing? Its sleek gold case, with the YSL detail in the centre revealing the coloured panel matching the actual lipstick, it is just beautiful and in all honesty I would have bought it for this alone!
Now you should know by now that I am obsessed with anything coral, peachy pink and the like, so this really did have to be the shade that I chose. It leans towards the pinker side of peach and compliments my warm skin tone nicely. The formulation is such, that it literally glides onto the lips leaving a pigmented wash of colour. It has a lovely creamy formulation which is very hydrating on the lips, yet still feels light and comfortable. I love moisturising formulas in lipsticks like Mac Creamsheen (post here) and the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks (post here) but find they don’t last more than a couple of hours, but I don’t really mind as it gives me a great excuse to whip this gorgeous lipstick out and reapply! This is a beautiful addition to my lipstick collection and the perfect colour for spring…please hurry up and arrive soon!
