Warning. I'm gaga for the packaging of all Yves Saint Laurent products. It's heavy, and just looks insanely haute. The YSL Rouge Volupte Perle Lipstick is no exception to this love.
From the Neiman Marcus website:
Rouge Volupte Perle Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15
The ultimate accessory, this creamy and nourishing lipstick is enveloped in a luxurious gold case with the timeless YSL logo that speaks elegance.
Lips instantly feel soft and supple and are drenched in gorgeous color with a satiny-pearl finish. The secret—a perfect blend of nourishing and soothing ingredients, and voluptuous pearls (transparent crystal pearls and colored pearls) that caress lips with a sensual yet sophisticated shine that's utterly irresistible.
A long-lasting and highly comforting formula leaves lips looking smoother, fuller and more radiant.
About Yves Saint Laurent:
At the age of 21, Yves Saint Laurent, held the top post at the French House of Dior before branching out under his own label in 1961. Under the YSL line, he introduced many revolutionary concepts, including Le Smoking (the women's tuxedo) and the safari jacket. The legendary Yves Saint Laurent designed clothes that defined entire eras of fashion. Intensely luxurious cosmetics, cutting-edge skincare, and fascinating fragrances have earned critical acclaim-and devoted fans-in their own right. The late designer's contributions to advancing women's fashion cannot be overstated, and current designer Stefano Pilati continues the brand's reputation for beautifully avant-garde creations.
This lippie is just an all around A plus plus. The color of Corail Solaire looks much more coral on the arm swatch than on the lips. The pink tone of my lips dims out the coral a bit. It glides on smooth, and hydrates so nicely. No gloss or liner needed!
Wear isn't too impressive, since it's glossy. It stays on for a few hours, unless you eat or drink then it's gone. I seriously can't stop gliding this on. It has a yummy flavor too, which could be a bad thing because it's making me want to eat my lips...
Corail Solaire, along with the other colors in the Rouge Volupte Perle line, retail for $34. A little high, BUT if you don't need a liner or a gloss, then you're saving money... right? There, I just justified it for you. And for me. Definitely getting a few more. ;)
You can pick up YSL Rouge Volupte Perle Lipstick at high end department stores, as well as Sephora.
