YSL Rouge Volupte Shine #4 Rouge in Danger

A few months ago now I was lucky enough to be the winner of the lovely Kate's blog giveaway to win a YSL lipstick. Like every makeup obsessed girl I love YSL Lipsticks. They just scream luxury to me and I obviously chose a classic red since I wear red the most and would have more opportunities to take this little beaut out my handbag (any excuse)!

There is just something about a fresh untouched lipstick that I love, that's probably the shopaholic on me but I just cannot resist a nice fresh lipstick. The packaging on these is gorgeous and I've always loved the gold and intricate script detail on the band that corresponds to the colour inside. I also noticed that the shines are sort of metallicy and the others not! I don't know if it's just me but are they also a different gold?

The colour I got is number 4 - Rouge in Danger. It's described as a rich strawberry red, I feel this describes it perfectly its not red but its not pink it manages to cross that middle ground perfectly. It's not a bright in your face red either and the sheer formula of the shine probably contributes to this. I'd say it's the perfect red for everyday wear and for those a little shy of dark or bright reds. However the formula is a little bit... It does tend to wear off quite quickly and settle in lines on the lips as well so reapplication throughout the day is needed and a good lipliner is a must!

This however won't put me off as I still love them, a YSL lipstick is the perfect gift for anyone and a good treat for yourself!

Availible to purchase at Boots, Debenhams, Feel Unique for £24
