YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick- Prune In Fire

Hi Everyone. Hope you are all as fabulous as I just KNOW you look.

I have some serious lip action for you today. The sort of lipstick you can praise the Goddess of Autumn for. This shiny gorgeous golden bullet of bad boyNESS was the reason I wished away the remainder of August. The reason I willed the fluffy cardie and buckled boots season to arrive. 


As impulsive as I am all that 'wishing away' carry on occurred before I'd even sampled this on my lips. I mean I swatched in shop... sure! But an arm swatch doesn't really tell you how this going is going to look painted on your pout does it? 

The packaging though? Oh it's a bit sexy like. 

So first things first.
 It has a smooth and moisturising formula that slides across the lips with no tugging or pulling. It glides on leaving a deep intense colour with a beautiful glossy sheen.

Prune in Fire is incredibly pigmented. It's a striking claret colour that looks less berry more burgundy on the lips. The strength of the shade is balanced beautifully by the glossy glistening finish though.

Me and my cack hands had a right faff on applying this. I'm well aware I may be alone in creating such a mess when simply getting my pout on but I'm an honest girly and prone to over sharing so here it goes.

I was a mess. I seriously had lipstick from "a***hole to breakfast time" (quoting my late Granda there!) If you need that owld Geordie saying deciphered then it simply means... 'it was everywhere'. And it was.
Teeth, cheeks, neck and eyelid. 
How I do not know! But the message is clear... apply with caution! :)

In all seriousness though, it is a bit smudgy for like the first hour but the actual colour does leave lips with a rather satisfying stain for hours!
 Rule of thumb, if lips are shiny they are smudgy so gan steady! (another bit of geordie wisdom for you there!)

I love the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine range. I want to add more colours to my collection... Any recommendations? Have you had any ridiculous lipstick mishaps? It can't just be me with the skill set of a five year old... CAN IT? :)

  11. Ah this is the most gorgeous shade! I love it :) I really need one of these lipsticks!xxx

  12. my hair ends up dragging lipsticks like this all owwa!!! that's why i tend to opt for matte dark tones... like diva by mac. i propz love diva... but mac hasn't got a patch on the ysl packaging. i wanna try no 19... that bright pink.. lisa eldridge does a YT vid with it and i keep watching it and am like 'fucking. luv'.

    i'm not good with dark lip application tho... but my makeup artist friend told me always to line in a nude pencil first. apply lipstick. blot. go over with liner that matches lip colour. then add more lip colour. it's a bit too faffy even for me if i'm honest but if i'm going out out this trick does work. as tested on the diamond strip on different glass types including wine, shorts and shots... ;P

    have a nice weekend pet lamb! xxx

  13. Oooh Kate I love your little Geordie interludes haha - I'll be fluent by Christmas...
    Also, you are beautiful and that shade is gorgeous on you - I bet you even worked it while on your teeth, cheeks, eyelids...everywhere haha :p
