YSL Rouge Volupte Sensual Radiant Lipstick

A reader recently asked me what the best pigmented and moisturizing lipstick was and my answer was Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE VOLUPTÉSilky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15.  The YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick line is packed full of pigment, yet the YSL lipsticks are comfortable to wear. Needless to say, they also last very well.  Furthermore, YSL packaging is always gorgeous!

P218426_hero Most of the YSL lipstick shades are not for someone who is shy about lip color. For the most part, they are bright and vibrant. They also pack in pigment, so there is nothing sheer or mild about them! With that said, you actually can wear most YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick on them on the sheer side by being careful with the application. Then build them up for more color punch.

For the neutral shade lover like me, finding a YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick that isn’t too intimidating can be difficult, but I like several of them.  Below are YSL Lipstick swatches of my four favorite shades. From left to right:  Nude Beige, Spicy Pink, Opera Rose, Exquisite Plum. Opera Rose is new—it is part of the 2010 YSL spring collection.


YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick is pricey, but it ranks among the best there is. If you find a shade that you like, it is well worth it. Plus, every girl needs a luxury lippie or two (or three, or four, or more….)


Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick Compact

For complete luxury in both packaging and quality the Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact is a must have. In Rouge G, Guerlain has put together what I think is the most beautiful lip package ever created. I love it for the case alone, which also does a nice job of including a mirror. But the lipstick itself is also wonderful. It is creamy, smooth, and wears beautifully.

Buerlain Rouge G Lipstick

Here is what the company says about it:

Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact

What it is: A shimmering, ruby-powder lipstick tucked inside a chic, Parisian case.
What it does: Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact contains a ruby-powder formula that interacts with the light and creates a jaw-dropping pout of perfection. At first glaze, lips will be left defined, smoothed, plumped, and hydrated.
What else you need to know: Tucked in a compact that marries beauty with high design, with one click, you will have a luminous lipstick and mirror at your fingertips. Designed by Lorenz Bäumer, the most talented jeweler from the Place Vendôme in Paris, it is the ultimate accessory of mystery and seduction.

I say, get it for the sake of having a beautiful luxury lipstick in your purse.


MAC Holiday Lip Kits and Bags

I managed to sneak in a field trip to the MAC store to see the new MAC Holiday Collection icon. The MAC lip bags this year are quite nice. I like the silver bags, and the colors in both sets are quite attractive. One set is a selection of pretty pinks, and the other collection is akin to brick red in color.

The lip kits are also nice, as usual. One kit has neutral  shades and the other has pinks. There is also a MAC Viva Glam set. Again, I like the cases on these quite a bit this year.

Finally, there are new dazzleglasses out for the holidays, including two very nice pinks. The shades are softer this year, and I rather like that!
