YSL Rouge Volupte #29 Rose Opera Lipstick Swatch and Review

For my 21st birthday I was given the most expensive and luxurious lipstick I own . As soon as I seen it I was amazed at the gorgeous packaging and amazing colour inside. I love that you can see the shade of the lipstick on the outside of the golden case amongst the engraved YSL logo. Perfect in case I buy another YSL lipstick!

The girls chose me a beautiful medium pink which instantly makes me think of summer, bubblegum and roses. I don't think Opera Rose is the right name for it but no one can argue with YSL.

The lipstick is very buttery, velvety and creamy. It glides on smoothly but only lasts a couple of hours because of the texture. This isn't too big a problem but puts me off wearing it on nights out that I know a lot of drinks will be involved - drunken lipstick application isn't safe!  With that being said I've never had any problem applying it, it glides on nicely, covers my lips and I've not had any experience of it bleeding. 

I've seen some people say they don't like the smell. Personally I've never noticed the lipstick to have any scent, it's very neutral and doesn't affect me when applying or wearing it.

What's the most luxurious lipstick you own?
