Gorgeous In Grey Product Review - Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Pearl Lipstick

Where oh where do I begin.


I’ve been searching for a purple lip since last season. Actively searching for the past month. I originally set out to find the NARS Train Bleu that I saw Teyana Taylor rocking during Fashion Week. It was sold out everywhere. When I finally did get my hands on it I realized it just wasn’t for me. I felt very vampy but in the most horrible way possible. I finally found a purple that I absolutely adore!

Hand Swatch of Different Purple Hues!

I travelled to many a Sephora looking for the perfect purple. I just wasn’t wowed by any. So I walked a few blocks down and found a Bloomingdales. Every beauty enthusiast I know says your makeup bag is not complete unless you’ve got YSL and Dior in it.

I fell in love with Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Pearl Lipstick in Spellbinding Violet. Of course it doesn’t come out quite this purple, and the color varies depending on what I am wearing but how gorge is this hue! I ended up ordering it online because it was sold out in the store, of course. I even found a coupon for 30% just by googling “YSL coupons”. Yes it works!

It came to the office during Sandy so I had to wait a week before I could rock it. BUT it’s been my go-to lip ever since. I’ve been getting so many compliments on the color, makes me feel super duper pretty (tee hee)!!!

I imagine that perhaps a pair of YSL pumps may feel just as amazing as this lippy. It goes on so smooth. Similar to chapstick but very glamourous. It’s quite amazing and truly my favorite!

Getchu some hunny!

    also, thinking about your comments on ysl pumps…did you know that during times of recession, lipstick sales INCREASE? i guess us chicas still want to look pretty, so we’ll spend the money on lipstick!
