My first YSL rouge volupte lipstick

Please meet the new love of my life...

My very first YSL rouge volupte :)

Check out that beaut packaging!

Quite possibly one of the most gorgeous things I've ever owned

I chose shade 1 (nude beige) which is a gorgeous pinky nude colour 

This colour is so wearable and I love how it applies.  I'm ashamed to admit I bought this based on looks alone, but it really is an amazing lipstick too.  It goes on so smoothly and feels super creamy on.  It smells good too - to me it's like a subtle watermelon fragrance.  The one downside is that it's not long lasting, but reapply regularly means lots of opportunities to flash the gorgeousness!  

If you follow me on twitter you may know that I actually lost this lipstick two weeks ago and I was more than a little distraught!  Luckily I found it again a week later hiding among my Christmas present purchases and the love affair was back on.  While it was lost I ordered another to ease the pain, but I picked a different colour in case the original turned up, so now I have two of the beauts :) My Mum's giving me the new one for Christmas, so I don't get to play with that yet, but it's a coral / peach one.

If you haven't tried one of these before I highly recommend them.  Debenhams currently have them on offer for £18.70 with free delivery - go go go!
