YSL Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Lipstick in 11 Rose Culte

This post is not intended for those weak at heart.  What I have for you today is a lipstick so beautiful, daring, vibrant and naughty that I have gotten hot flashes just looking at it.  What is it you ask?

Alright, enough packaging pics / ingredient information...right?

YSL Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiance - Rose Culte

I purchased this lovely tube of silky goodness at Sephora for $34.00 USD.  Size is net wt. 0.14 oz / 4g of product and it is all contained in a lovely, gold colored, metallic casing.  What I love is how heavy and luxe it feels.  Outside of the main compartment, is a stenciled out YSL insignia with a color ribbon inside, that in this case, it exactly true to the color within.  This is part of the Silky Sensual Radiant line...as YSL has a few other options for Rouges and Voluptes.

Warning:  Those who are sensitive to scented products may not like this.  Those who do, start drooling!
The scent of this is so yummy and appropriate for summer, somewhere between fruity and floral.  It is  impactful upon application, but fades away rather quickly I would say.

The wear of this lipstick is fantastic.  It seems to morph the longer it is on your lips.  Upon first application, this has such a silky, glossy finish...and it is so light on the lips.  This is not a thick formula which boggles my mind as this product is so pigmented.  The lip feel is so light.  Once blended, shine turns into sheen and the lips look lovely.  I love this as a stain as it blends out beautifully...looking semi-matte after the shine wears off.  Do note that on me, this product has stained my lips.  I have tried this both on moisturized and unmoisturized lips and the same effect was that of staining my lips.

This is the perfect vivid Fuchsia.  Freshly applied, there is a lot of pink to this color.  Once it has had a chance to sit on the lips, you can really see the cherry red notes pop out!  I have to touch on this point again, as it is really awesome...this is really pigmented and looks thick, almost like a matte lipstick.  But it is a phenomenally light product...perfect for the summer season.

Do you need one of these?  Of course you do!
