Okay so I took a few photos earlier, but for some reason they came out horrible... I picked a few Christmas shades that I'm loving at the moment but I found this Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Perle in #114* in my draw. I reviewed this last year but I wanted to include it as my "favourite day lipstick" - I don't think I feature enough of my all time favourite products, so I wanted to start with the lipsticks. I'll be doing the xmas shades later on in the week. Now, if you haven't treated yourself to a YSL lipstick before, (I say treat because for me, £24.50 is slightly on the pricey side) I really think they are worth it. Lets start with the packaging, I can honestly say I have not seen a lipstick that looks as nice as YSL. They have perfected their packaging down to a T. The actual formula of the lipstick is quite unique, I tried this shade on my sister (she is pretty much a lipstick virgin) and she noticed the difference in texture straight away, compared to the regular Rimmel or MAC lipsticks she wears.
It is incredibly lightweight on your lips and it almost feels like a gloss! Besides from the lightweight texture, the pigmentation is amazing. From the swatches above, I literally did one coat! Because of the formula of this lipstick it is perfect if you're rushing out the house, it is quick and easy to apply and for a natural look, you can gently dab a small amount onto your lips as a tint. I personally prefer matte finish lipsticks that feel quite thick on my lips so I wasn't too impressed about the formula of the Rouge Volupte range, but it has slowly grown on me. I wear this pretty much as a day lipstick, it is cute, pretty and very girl next door. I really recomedn this if you want a everyday lipstick and something very natural. What are your favourite day lipsticks? Have you tried any of the YSL Rouge Volupte Pearl lipsticks? 8.5/10 ♥
