First impressions/ YSL Volupte Lipstick


I've wanted a Higher end lipstick for a while but didn't really know what brand to start with. I have a couple of MAC'S but wanted to try something different.  I'm not the most confident person and going to the Higher end counters intimidate me a little. But I was in boots having a look around and at all the drugstore lipsticks but nothing caught my eye. So I thought I'm going to brave this and go and look at the higher end counters. I went straight to the YSL counter and was looking around. Thankfully there didn't seem to be anyone attending the counter. So I had a good look around. But Straight away I new what one I was going to go for YSL VOLUPTE LIPSTICK.

I Know these have been going around for a while but I've never brought one. Picking the shade that I wanted was one of the most difficult tasks. They are such beautiful shades and it got me a little overwhelmed. But I new I wanted a shade that I could wear everyday. So that was the reds out of the question. I thought about the pinks and I knew I wouldn't get the use out of it like I new I should. So all there was left was the Nudes. I don't think it was any shock I went for a nude shade really. The women who served me was really lovely and I'm so glad my higher end counter experience was nice.

The shade I went for was 3 ultimate beige. Which is a perfect nude for me. Darker nudes seem to suit me better.  It cost £26.00 so pretty expensive for a lipstick. But totally worth it. As I've said I've never tried any of these lipsticks before. So I didn't really know what to expect. But I think it was the most enjoyable experience applying it for the first time. Might be a little sad but its so TRUE. It glides on so smoothly with a silky feel. Not only does it feel good on the lips it has a shine which gives something extra special to the lips. Its so pigmented. With every lipstick I always like to test how long it lasts. I had high expectations with this one because of the price tag. It lasted pretty well from eating a meal to drinking. It did lose a little bit of the shine but nothing that was too noticeable. I had to apply it once. Which is pretty good going. Also look at that packaging. It's definitely my prettiest lipstick. It's so luxury looking. It sits in its pride of place on the dressing table

I'm so happy I went with this one. It didn't disappoint. I think I'm going to get a  pink shade because they are so beautiful to. With all high end products there is always some hype surrounding it. But this lipstick deserves the hype and plenty more. I recommend this to anyone who wants a little splurge. Its beautiful you won't be disappointed.


  1. The packaging is stunning ! So pretty. I want to get some high end lipsticks too. This one looks promising. The staying power is very important. Glad, this one worked out x

  2. Such a gorgeous colour and the packaging is just so lovely! I'm a gloss girl but this would definitely be my kind of colour if I was to buy some lipsticks! x

  3. I very rarely buy high end makeup, so it's always a nice treat when I do. I've not yet purchased anything YSL but I always hear amazing reviews on these lippies! They look amazing & I think the shade you've got for is absolutely perfect! I'm hoping to pick something like these up in the duty free when I go on holiday next week. Eeep! Fab post Amy!!

  4. I have two YSL lipsticks and they are such beautiful formulas! This shade looks so gorgeous and how beautiful is the packaging?! Definitely one of my favourite just for how it looks!
