YSL Lipstick 9 - Nude in Private!

So Tuesday 29th July was National Lipstick Day and the first email I saw when checking my inbox was one from Debenhams proudly stating that to celebrate there is £5 of every lipstick you buy - well it would have been rude not too right?

I was meeting the lovely Kimberely from Kimberleysbeautyblog outside Debenhams anyway and we decided to have a quick browse -  after plenty of swatches I decided I could no longer resist the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks and it was a choice of two, number 8 or number 9.  I settled for number 9 which is called 'Nude in Private'.  

The first thing there is to say about YSL lipticks is the packaging, not usually an interesting conversation to have, but wow, stunning from the outer gold box to the actual lipstick case. The outer case on this lipstick is gold coloured and there in the tiniest of intricate details are the YSL letters, behind it is a solid purpley pink colour, which for me makes the whole thing look stunning, I could sit here and look at it for hours.

As soon a tried this product I loved it. The texture of the lipstick is incredibly smooth, almost like a lip butter and really hydrating. When applied it glides onto the lips and has a definite shine to it. However this lipstick is also packed with fruit extracts and it is one of the first things I picked up on when I was testing it, it smells like raspberries to me and I really like it. Not only does it have fruit extract but it is also rich in vitamins and antioxidants which are said to leave your lips visibly softer and smoother with up to eight hours of hydration and it contains the beauty bloggers favourite ingredient Hyaluronic acid - quite impressive hey?!

This lipstick and others within the range retail for £25 each, though with my £5 discount it cost £20 which is just £5 more than I would pay for a MAC Lipstick and this one is much better design, quality and lasts much longer on the lips and I mean a lot longer.

If you don't own one of these lipsticks, I urge you to go and get one, I am so glad I did and I will definitely be purchasing more!

Do you own a YSL Lipstick?  Do you have a favourite?

  7. Looks like a lovely colour and the packaging is attractive. I rarely wear make up though and couldn't warrant paying that much for a lipstick xx

  15. I owned a YSL lipstick once and loved it. I must try it again. It feels like a really grown up lipstick.

  17. That looks beautiful. I have to admit I'm not much of a make up buff and wouldn't pay that much for a lipstick as I always lose them - I usually go for the cheaper brands because I would be heartbroken if I lost something that pretty!!

  20. Beautiful color! I don't own any kind of lipsticks, I have to admit. I don't really wear any make-up because of my allergies.

  23. Back in my glamorous days I did have YSL lipstick and a few other bits too. I think my whole makeup collection was from there for my Mum and Step-Dads wedding but nowadays my budget just runs to No.7 but I do make sure I always top up my Bare Minerals. Great review. Liska xx
