If you regularly read my blog, it’s no secret I’m obsessed with pink lipstick for everyday wear. It’s a versatile lip look that can be paired with dramatic or simple eye makeup. That being said, let’s talk about YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in Nude Beige.
Color: Despite its name, Nude Beige is more of a pinky than a beige-toned nude. Because of the pink tones, this lipstick is less of a risk for the “concealer lips” nude lip look. It’s also not an overly pale nude color, so it should work well on a variety of skin tones. The color is mostly opaque and has a soft, subtle shine.
Texture: This lipstick has creamy, not sticky or slimy, but creamy texture. Unlike many other creamy lipsticks, YSL doesn’t ask you to trade color payoff for a nice texture. It gives you both.
Application: Rouge Volupte lipsticks apply evenly and opaquely with only one swipe. The shape of the lipstick means you might have to be a little bit careful applying it to your cupid’s bow, but this is easily manageable.
Wear: This lasted a few hours on me and did not feather during that time.
Price: $34.00, but you can really see the difference in quality between this and drugstore brands.
Animal Testing: This is tested on animals and is NOT cruelty-free.
