Some people splurge on shoes, some people save up for jewelry, but when it comes to luxurious items, for me, it’s all about YSL lipsticks. I try to grab one only here and there and not make it a habit because then it feels really special and exciting when I get to take it out of the packaging and hold it. There’s no doubt that the YSL ROUGE VOLUPTE Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF15 is stunningly gorgeous, from the packaging to the actual product. I have #29 Opera Rose for you today. If you’re a classic pink lip lover, you’re going to adore this perfectly feminine shade of rose pink. Enjoy the eye candy inside,
The packaging alone makes this a really special item to purchase and receive. The lipstick bullet is so pretty that I often display my YSL lipsticks on top of my makeup drawers in my office. They’re fun to look at it and have a very classic, rich French look to them. Perfectly YSL.
#29 Opera Rose is a vibrant rose pink. This is actually my first time trying one of their Silky Sensual Radiant Lipsticks. I had previously used their Glossy Stains and Rouge Volupte Shine, but not this formula. This is much more opaque and rich in color. It spreads on beautifully in just one pass. You’ll have really great color in just one pass of the lipstick on your lips because it’s so strong in color. They feel very hydrating, much more than I was expecting actually. My lips felt a bit dry but as soon as I applied this they felt normal again. I love the satin finish and the fact that they include an SPF15 in it. The lipstick itself also smells divine…a very genuine sweet smell that is subtle.
I was pleasantly surprised by what great coverage this lipstick puts down. Just one swipe put this color down!
This color is stunning. It’s a bright, punchy pink shade that manages to be very flattering and wearable. It’s a sophisticated classic. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about these YSL lipsticks, which is probably in part why I keep splurging on them from time to time. Now that I know I love the Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF15 formula so much, I’ll have to go back for more in the future.
Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE VOLUPTE Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF15 is available at YSL counters nationwide, as well as at Sephora stores nationwide. Each lipstick retails for $34.00 USD. You can also browse and purchase these lipsticks online at Sephora’s website. I personally have my eye on #13 Peach Passion for next time!
