Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE VOLUPTÉ #1 Nude Beige, #29 Opera Rose, #30 Faubourg PeachSaturday, June 16, 2012
As seen from the title, I'm going to do a mini review on these amazing lipsticks!
I actually own 3 of them now! Just splurged online the other day and got the 3rd one - #29 Opera Rose. Bought it on OZCOSMETICS and it arrived in 4 days! How awesome.
Such a pretty packaging~
YSL lipstick has the best packaging I've ever seen!
This came with a mirror cap! Total different from the other two that I own. Those two also have a reflective cap thou, very useful when I have to touch up.
#29 Opera Rose
It's a very pretty bright pink. Not something that I will wear on a daily basis but will look great on a date or a girls night out. Love it!

The scent is awesome. It is suppose to be a mango scent but to me it smells more like honeydew, which is great too! Not too sweet and overwhelming.
Really good quality and pigmented. Rich color! Lighter colors like #1 Nude Beige has a very creamy feel to it, which makes the baby pink looks softer and super cute.
Creamy lipsticks like these usually has poorer staying power. I did abit of research and found out that actually prepping your lips is very important for the lipstick to last longer. Other than applying lip balm to moisturize your lips. Applying a lip liner that is close to your natural lip colour also help it last (: another way that I experimented myself is to apply lipstick, then blot with tissue, then set it with a bit of translucent powder and apply again!
I took photos of how each of them looked on my lips.. Sorry for the bad quality :/ and my lips look super weird and slanted oh god!
