Blast From The Past #9


YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick in No. 1 Nudge Beige – £23.50

This week’s ‘Blast From The Past’ or BFTP that I might so elegantly start calling this feature, pays homage to a piece of cosmetic luxury. The YSL Rouge Volupté lipstick. If you want class, luxury and price then look no further then YSL. But then if you also want intense moisturise with great colour payoff and selection then you have still come to the right place. Parting with your hard earned cash will be hard but boy will it be worth it! I bought my first YSL lipstick back in September 2011 (I still have the blog post floating around on the interwebz to show it!) and I started off with a much brighter selection No. 13 Peach Passion. However, I quickly returned to pick up it’s nudey counterpart Nude Beige. A year ago these lipsticks cost £22 but already they have jumped up to £23.50. Would I repurchase another one at this price? Well considering the way this lipstick is going and how much I use it this might happen sooner rather then later!

These lipsticks glide onto your lips like velvet and, although a little be streaky on a unprimed lip, they provide pretty intense colour whilst remaining moisturising and soft. When I first bought this lipstick I could hardly put it down but then as with most of my other cosmetics it got pushed aside for a new limited edition lipstick. It would flit back onto my lips a couple of days a month but recently it has become a permeant fixture. I have been reaching for my YSL Nudge Beige instead of any of my more drying MAC lipsticks and when I want to inject a bit of colour I pick up the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in 69 Flirt (which I have also rekindled my love for!)

Sometimes a girl just needs to treat themselves to a bit of luxury and there isn’t many things that look more luxurious then this. Pricey? Yes. Worth it? Do you need to ask? :P

  • I love my Rouge Volupte lipsticks so much…applying them is a dream! its just a shame, i find they dissappear so quickly. Do you have any tips on how to make them last longer?

    • I make sure my lips are primed and moisturised before I apply them and if needs be add a bit of Lipcote to seal in the colour =) xx

  • I also love these lipsticks, i have a few of them and despite the price i will continue to buy – mind you i dont have this colour this may be my next purchase!

  • I disagree these lipsticks are just horrible, they are so melty on my lips and sink into all the lines of your lips and have zero lasting power, if they were packaged in rubbish packaging I’m sure more people would agree!

    • Oh no! I guess they ease of application helps sells them for me and also I ensure my lips are primed to help keep the colour in place =) xx

  • I love this colour on you, I rarely wear lipstick so I’ve never tried them but great review!


  • I rarely wear lipstick, but I’d love to have this jewel in my purse!xoxo

  • the color is just amaziiiiing
