Hi everyone! I’m back! I’ve haven’t posted a blogpost for a very long time, but I’m back at it! I’ve been really busy with school due to exams, so I decided to completely focus on school. But now the exams are finally over, and I’m graduated from high school! So I have lots and lots of time for blogging right now, and I’m very excited to share this ‘first’ blogpost with you.
As some of you might already know, I love me some lipsticks, so I ended up getting one of the YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks. I’ve never owned one of these lipsticks before, mainly because of the price. Because girl… that ain’t cheap for a lipstick. But I’ve been wanting to try these lipsticks for a very long time already, so I got one anyways, and I’m going to share my thoughts on it with you guys.
The packaging of this lipstick is just amazing. I absolutely love it. The shiny golden colour makes it look very classy and luxurious. This lipstick looks so good in a makeup collection.
I decided to get get it in shade 70 Le Nu, which is a brown toned nude colour. These types of colors are the colors that I typically go for, because it’s perfect for an everyday look.
As you can see in the swatch below, the pigmentation of this lipstick is pretty good. It’s definately not very opaque, but it is buildable. It has more of a satin finish. The formula is very creamy and smooth, and it leaves a slight sheen on the lips. The staying power of this lipstick is not very long, it probably won’t survive a meal. So you will have to do some touch ups throughout the day. But I do have to say that this is one of the most comfortable lipsticks to wear. It’s really moisturizing and feels nice on the lips. One more thing, it does have a florally scent. To me, it kind of smells like perfume. I personally don’t really mind, because when you wear it the scent quickly fades away.
Overall, I think this is a really good lipstick, but I do think it’s a bit overpriced. On the sephora website you can get it for $37. But then you do get a high quality, super creamy and very beautiful looking lipstick!
