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.
THE YSL ROUGE VOLUPTE SHINE PRUNE IN FIRE LIPSTICK!
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.
WORD OF WARNING...
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? :)
