The Yves Saint Laurent lipstick has been on my wish list for quite some time now. Everything about the packaging made me love it and the YSL engraved bullet screamed perfection. The only factor that held me back was the price. Finally, I’ve made the decision to invest in the product and I couldn’t wait to review it! The colour range is stunning and I had a very difficult time picking out the shade I wanted. In the end, the classic red is what stuck out to me the most. Below is my review of the stunning Le Rouge #1 lip stick.
First of all, the smell. The light fragrance smell is absolutely perfect. Secondly, the texture. The lipstick glides on perfectly on your lips and feels extremely silky and light. To be quite honest, it feels extremely moisturizing and feels more like a lip balm than lip stick itself. The colour is extremely pigmented but definitely suitable for both warm and cool complexions.
The only downfall to the lipstick is the staying power. Numerous times I’ve noticed that the lipstick would stain my hands for example if I brushed my fingers against my lips. That being said, this can be expected given how smooth the formula really is. While the lipstick is transferable, it generally tends to stain the lips with it’s colour so you don’t have to worry about lips being pale.
Overall, given the amazing creamy and satin texture of the lipsticks, I would definitely purchase them again. With their price, the lipsticks are definitely a splurge, but oh so worth it.
