YSL Rouge Volupte in Forbidden Burgundy  - £24.50

Lets get one thing out of the way before we even begin - the YSL Rouge Volupte Lipsticks cost a fortune, I don't even know how anybody could justify that kind of price on a lipstick - I thought MAC Lipsticks were pricey enough... however they are something you could add to a wish list or like I did use your Debenhams points to save some money! 

The YSL Rouge Volupte packaging is simply beautiful, it's so luxurious and looks great on show in the bedroom. If I'm honest I have to admit that the only reason I bought this lipstick was because of the gorgeous packaging. I picked shade Forbidden Burghandy as its very me due to its dark purple tones, I picked this up ages ago for New Years Eve but its a very autumnal shade so I'm looking forward to wearing it this autumn/winter. 

In terms of quality, the colour pay off is amazing, you can build it up to be as 'pinky' or as dark as you like. The lipstick itself really is so creamy and glides on like a dream, I don't usually need to do much prep on my lips at all as its such a creamy and moisturising lipstick. I find due to its dark colour and shape of applicator it is so difficult to apply. I usually use the Real Techniques Detailer brush to apply this lipstick to get clean lines around the lips as its difficult to get those using the circular applicator. You can easily over apply this lipstick due to its soft nature, I can imagine it would melt very easily in hot weather, I always blot this lipstick a which gives a nice bright and even lip.

Overall I think it's the perfect shade for autumn/winter and the quality of the lipstick is great. My only niggles are the shape of the lipstick and the wear time isn't fantastic either.
