YSL lipsticks in general are the definition of luxury lippies – I challenge any beauty-loving girl to not feel a little bit curious when you spy another girl with one of these gorgeous golden tubes of lip-gorgeousness. I have two other Rouge Volupte lip products that reside firmly in my favourites box and this one is the latest addition – for me, it’s the ultimate my lips but better shade.
One of 19 new shades, grouped across a range of colour families… beige, coral, red, pink, and purple – this shade, Nude in Private falls into the Coral family, which I love because it is a nude, but with just the right amount of peach to make it really flattering. The texture is amazing for these – really light and quite sheer, but easily buildable. Best thing though, has to be how moisturising they are – my lips are really dry and a bit chapped at the moment. But with this, that doesn’t show, amazing.
This is thanks to the combination of lip care goodness that is in the lipstick – hyaluronic acid microspheres (hyaluronic acid is basically my skincare weakness), antioxidant shield thanks to Pomegranate and rice, Emollients to offer protection and comfort by keeping lips super smooth. All together, shiny, smooth, sheer, moisturising colour.
The sheer shades also mean it’s a good way to try brighter/scarier colours in a way that’s not as daunting as a slick of opaque/pigmented colour. You can build up as you get more used to the shade.
