REVIEW | YVES SAINT LAURENT ROUGE VELUPTÉ #3 ULTIMATE BEIGE





I've already told you that I am on a bit of a lip product kick, so don't be surprised to see a lot of lip product posts coming up real soon. I guess I've become a member of the Lip Product Addict club. Recently, Hagkaup (a store in Iceland) was having a Tax Free sale (around 20% off), so I, of course had to take advantage of the discount! I finally got myself a Yves Saint Laurent lipstick. The Rouge Volupté in shade number 3, also known as Ultimate Beige.

This is very much a 90's lip, although it is looking a tad bit darker on camera. It's a difficult color to describe, a brown peachy nude? Let's go with that. I will admit that the main reason I've wanted a YSL lipstick for so long, is because of the packing, I mean it is just absolutely stunning. But after trying it and wearing it a few times, I can see why these are so popular. The formula is like no other, it's the creamiest thing I've ever put on my lips and it glides on like butter (literally like butter, warm butter). It's very pigmented and has a beautiful glossy finish. It also lasts pretty long for such a glossy product and wears really nicely. Can you tell I like this product?

So, my conclusion is this : If you have been thinking about getting a Rouge Velupté, go for it. It's that good. I know I will adding a few more shades in to my collection. 

//Eins og ég sagði í fyrri færslu, þá er ég að missa mig í vörum fyrir varirnar, svo ekki láta það koma þér á óvart ef það verða margar varalita færslur á næstunni. Ég er víst orðin ein af þessum lip product addicts. Það var Tax Free í Hagkaup fyrir stuttu og greip ég tækifærið, að sjálfsögðu. Ég leyfði mér loksins að splæsa í Yves Saint Laurent varalit. Rouge Velupté í lit númer 3, einnig þekktur sem Ultimate Beige.

Þessi litur hrópar 90's en hann kemur aðeins dekkri út á myndunum. Það er mjög erfitt að lýsa litnum, en ég myndi segja brúnn, ferskju nude litur, já segjum það bara. Ég viðurkenni að aðal ástæðan fyrir því að mig hefur langað í þessa varaliti svona lengi, er útaf pakkningunni, enda guðdómleg. En eftir að hafa notað hann nokkrum sinnum, skil ég vel afhverju þessir varalitir eru svona vinsælir. Áferðin er ólík öllu öðru sem ég hef prufað, hann er svooo kremaður og bráðnar á vörunum (eins og smjör). Hann er líka vel pigmentaður og glansar fallega. Hann endist ágætlega og er þægilegur á vörunum. Er nokkuð augljóst að ég elska þennan varalit?

Ef þú hefur verið að pæla í að kaupa þér Rouge Velupté varalit, go for it! Hann er það góður. Ég veit að ég mun bæta fleiri litum í safnið, hægt og rólega.

  1. I really want a YSL lipstick. I wouldn't get this shade though. Too dark and brown for my liking.
