After I landed myself a John Lewis voucher through the survey reward site Valued Opinions, I spent hours searching for a little something to spend it on. I finally settled on on the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick in Pourpre Intouchable.
I find the YSL lipsticks to be a luxurious item that I wouldn't normally convince myself to purchase because of the price tag, but they receive such great reviews and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get myself £10 off.
Pourpre Intouchable is a stunning deep berry laced with shimmer. It's a sheer but buildable colour that glides onto the lips with ease, keeping them smooth and moisturised. I find that the shimmer in the bullet doesn't particularly translate onto the lips, creating a glossy appearance rather than the disco ball effect. I get about 2-3 hours wear out of this particular shade. It fades quickly when eating or drinking but reapplying is effortless.
Now let's talk packaging. It definitely reflects the price tag, housed in a gold casing and a band that is reflective of the colour inside. These lipsticks deserve to be out on display rather than thrown to the back of a drawer. I couldn't shell out £24 for one of these very often, but as a treat? It's worth it!
