I am not sure about the color of the red one, but I’m feeling pretty confident saying this is the color Le Orange. It is a red and orangey color, as you might have noticed from the pictures. I don’t think my lips should be very dark, I haven’t tried darker red colors though, but that’s just what I feel for now, so to speak. Anyhow, this red one is from YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE and I bought it in London. It was £20 or so, and I think it’s both affordable and gorgeous, also when you are provided with a personal shopper at Selfridge’s, £20 is not that much to me. However, this color suits me, I think, because it’s playful and stylish but not too mature, if you get what I mean. I am not a lipstick-junkie, and as I said I prefer the lighter colors, but this one suits me perfectly, according to myself.
Then why should you go with YSL YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE? Well, this one is very moist (although it is not as moist as the one below from another series of lipstick from YSL), and it doesn’t dry out my lips, which lipsticks overall tend to do to mine. The finish is not too glossy, but not too matte either, and if you just dab with a finger on them after applying the lipstick, you can easily make it more matte if that’s what you prefer. It lasts for long, I apply it twice or three times during an evening, which I think is a reasonable number of times. With other lipsticks we’re talking 10 times…
This is Lingerie Pink from YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ. I love light colors, as I’ve already stated. However there’s a thin line between stylish and what we in Sweden call ”fjortis” (girls who put too much foundation and bronzer on, white/blonde hair and then have very light lips, it’s comparable to a teenie bopper, but it’s hard do explain… Here are pictures of one if you’re curious!) and I am not sure whether everyone suits in this color. I actually don’t use it that much, only when I feel comfortable and not feeling like a ”fjortis” with my outfit and stuff. It’s a bit more light pink than what these pictures above show. All my friends say that it’s a very nice color, and that I should use it more often though.
Why you should buy a YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ? This takes the word moist to a whole new level, the formula in this one is very moist, and yet it doesn’t get smudgy. It’s like putting some sort of.. Naah, I have tried finding something that can compare to it, but I can’t. It’s almost like a lip balm or a Lipsyl, but it’s not as waxy as those are. You just have to try it! It’s very easy to use, since it is so creamy, and as the one above, you can choose how shiny you want it to be by dapping your finger on your lips after applying it. It’s very shiny to begin with, but I like it more matte. Since this is more moist, it’s not as durable as the ROUGE PUR COUTURE, but still you don’t have to apply it for more than 5 times during a whole night out. I am very happy with it, and I surely recommend it!
