YSL Fall Color Collection Swatch: Rouge Volupté Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick

Yves Saint Laurent ‘Rouge Volupté’ Lipstickicon has a new shade out for fall that is gorgeous! I love this lipstick in general, but often the shades are a bit out there for my tastes. However, the new Exquisite Plum shade is perfect. It looks rather dark in online shopping color swatches, but it isn’t quite so extreme on the skin, especially since you can apply it on the sheer side if desired.  Below is a swatch, along with a couple of lovely shades from  a Yves Saint Laurent ‘Ombres Duolumières’ Eye Shadow Duo in anise green and intense plum. I’ll review those at some point on Beauty and Fashion Tech.

YSL Rouge Volupté  lipsticks are creamy, smooth, and packed with pigment. You can do a sheer swipe with them (which I did in the picture), but add a layer or two and you can also get a more intense look.  I assume the model in the picture is wearing the shade, but honestly, it was much more sheer for me in the store (which I prefer, so I didn’t try to get it too dark).

The packaging is also gorgeous. Personally, I think YSL makes some of the best lipsticks around (Dior is another favorite), but the price does reflect that.

Easy Peasy Lip Scrub At Home

Today brings just a quickie lip tip for you. Do you need a lip scrub and don’t want to pay for a fancy pot scrub or balm?  Simply get out a bit of brown sugar and mix it with a little olive oil. Rub in on your lips for a moisturizing scrub!

Another option is to use dry powdered strawberry jello (the kind with sugar, don’t get sugar free) for a bit of a scrub that will leave a tint behind.
