I AM NOT a lipstick fan but when I see a luxurious lipstick that seems whimsical and fantastic, I just have to have it. My recent purchase was YSL Rouge Volupte in Sweet Honey. I was looking for a simple nude lip that was low maintainence. I was instantly in love with the packaging. Way beyond the loveliness of the gloss, the lipstick SCREAMS luxury. Admittedly, I have to apply it lightly, lest I look like a dried lip crackhead...seriously things can go wrong here, but with a light hand I love it. Here's what I don't love, it settles into the lines of my lips even after aggressive exfoliating and with lip balm underneath and it starts wearing off before I get to the garage. Seriously YSL, what the hell? For $34 I expect to at least get to my destination without needing a touch up. Still I gotta say the packing makes it all worth while. Sometimes the only option is Short Term Luxury. Will I get another? If I fall in love with another color YES, YES...probably. Next stop, Guerlain because the idea of having my name engraved on my lipstick case is beyond.
