May Fashion Challenge: Day 3

---Day 3---

-31 Day Fashion Challenge-
"Something you're wearing for the first time"

To cheer myself up on my fabric trip to London on my birthday I treated myself to this bad boy with money I got from my grandparents. I got the YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in shade 9 (Caress Pink). I'll admit I originally wanted one of these purely because the packaging is so beautiful. But I fell in love with this shade as soon as I swatched it, and this is seriously the best lipstick I have ever used.

It glides on so perfectly, and has amazing colour pay-off after just one light swipe! So if you like to vary how much of a lipstick you apply, then you may wish to use a lip brush for a lighter effect and more control. 

It did set me back £23.50, so it is in no way cheap, but personally if ever a lipstick deserves to be expensive, it's this one! Definitely the best quality make up product I've used by far.

Day 3: "Jazz Up Your Hands"



  1. Never tried a YSL lippy, that one seems lovely!

  2. After trying this one I want more, which isn't good as it's so expensive! It is a lovely colour though, the photo's don't really do the colour justice xx

  3. this is a beautiful colour and really suits you! I love the packaging! x
