I blame this purchase more or less entirely on Karen from Lovely Girlie Bits and Aisling Total Makeup Addict they were talking about the new shades in the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine and next of all I found myself in Boots with a new lipstick.
Normally I have a million swatches but on this day the shade 50 Fuchsia Stiletto jumped out at me and asked me to take it home. I could only oblige.
YSL Rouge Volupte Shines are described as "A revolutionary lipstick that provides luscious color and luminous shine while actually conditioning lips" Sold to the lady with €33.00 in Boots Points. Volupte Shines are made with nourishing oils which hydrate and plump the lips and help them look hydrated for up to 8 hours. There are 12 new shades in the range and I of course gravitated towards the bright pink.
Fuchsia Stiletto is very easy to wear, soft and comforting on the lips but leaves a lovely shot of colour. They remind me of the Lancome Juicy Shakers (post here) but the solid oil is neater on the lips and easier to apply. They really feel like a treatment on the lips. YSL lip products are spendy but man they have to do the best packaging out there, the bullet is classy and weighty and you feel like you are getting your monies worth (or Boots points worth?). I like to save my Boots points for exactly this kinda of treat.
