  £24.50 - available from here

YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick Rose Paris 

"All the magic and know-how of Yves Saint Laurent can be found in this lipstick. Both light yet rich, its creamy texture becomes fluid on contact with the lips for a smooth and pleasurable application that instantly leaves the lips feeling soft and dresses them with exceptional radiant colour." YSL Beauty

I've been meaning to out this on my blog for so long as my sister actually got me it for Christmas.. but I have been wearing darker colours recently. Does that excuse me from being a bad blogger?
Anyway, I'm pretty sure any beauty addict and lipstick fanatic has at least one of these beautiful YSL lipsticks in their collection. They really are gorgeous and the ultimate luxury lipstick I think.The packaging on them is absolutely gorgeous. I love the sleek gold design, and the intricate detailing with the colour band in the middle.. total swoon! Also it feels heavy and sturdy which is good for me as lipsticks end up everywhere in my bag!
To start with I wasn't totally sold on the colour, I like pink but I thought this was too pink even for me but when its applied to your lips its actually not quite as bright and I use a lip brush to mute it down a touch. Although I do think now that summer is nearly here this is one colour I'll be wearing a lot. It is definitely creamy and sort of moisturising when its first on your lips which means it can wear off quite quickly but I just whack some good old trusty Lipcote on. The one thing that did happen with me was my lips got super dry after a few hours but I have very dry lips in general.
Oh! did I mention it smells like watermelons it was one of the first things I noticed when I opened it up.
I am completely in love with this lipstick and not just because it looks great in my bag and on my dressing table, although that helps. Its definitely a colour I save for nights out and possibly the summer if I get some sort of tan, I think it would look great.
They aren't cheap at £24.50 but are something you could buy as a treat or get as a gift.
Although there is currently 10% off at Debenhams, not that I want to be an enabler or anything like that. Im currently trying to convince myself I don't need the Rouge Volupte Shine Fuschia in Excess the news of 10% off is making my will power fade! 
Whats the most expensive lipstick you own and do you love YSL Rouge Volupte as much as me?
