YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick.

Okay, so duty free may have got the better of me. I've been dying to try some of the YSL lipsticks for so long and I thought duty free was the perfect opportunity. I knew I needed to try one of the Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks, not only for their gorgeous finish but also for that amazing packaging

I happily settled for number 12 'Pretty in Paris' which is an amazing Barbie pink-esque colour but very wearable. This is the perfect shade for everyday wear and masters that your-lips-but-better look down to a tee. I wasn't sure what to expect texture-wise with this but YSL have definitely thought this through. This a really buttery, lip balm-like texture that just sits perfectly on the lips. I have very dry lips in general and this didn't dry them out at all, not even in the Cyprus sunshine. 

Surprisingly the staying power on this is incredible, especially for a balmy texture. I wore this on an evening and didn't need to top up once, despite drinking some yummy cocktails. In fact, I fell head over heels in love with this lipstick, so much so I picked up another YSL number on my way back through customs. I did pick up a different formula to try too, so watch this space for a review.

Let me know your YSL recommendations.
