So if you’ve read any of my recent posts (and really, you should, I’ve been featuring some really rather awesome products!), you’ll have noticed that I’ve been banging on about the better weather. For the past few weeks, the UK has been bathed in the most gorgeous of springtime sunlight, and I’ve been loving all the blossom in the air and golden evenings.
So, in something of a celebration, I’ve been brightening up my makeup a little. My routine usually consists of a pinky-nude lip shade that I’m sure would be boring to many, but I felt it was only right to opt for something a bit juicier looking. So, I plumped for one of YSL’s rather iconic Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks in the shade 41. It’s a really stunning warm toned coral shade which can, in the right light verge on pink.
It’s such a great choice if you’re looking for a summer lip colour, as it’s both incredibly pretty as well as ridiculously easy to wear. I’ve been applying mine straight from the bullet, and I’m just in love with YSL’s Rouge Volupte’s formula. If you’ve never tried it before, you’re really missing out! Rather than many lipsticks which have heavy, creamy formulas, YSL’s feels incredibly light and nourishing. They apply almost like a balm, and leave lips with a light glossy veil of colour.
I’ve already amassed quite the collection of Rouge Voluptes as the formulas are just so dreamy! Infused with oil, lips stay hydrated throughout the day, meaning that they are just the perfect choice for throughout the summer, and there is such a wonderful choice of colours too! So, if you’re looking for a new way to way a pink lip right now, definitely give number 41 a go, and let me know what you think!
