Review: YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in 6 Pink In Devotion

I'm a massive sucker for packaging. If something looks cute, there’s a higher chance I’m going to buy it. However, when something looks down right immaculate, like the YSL Rouge Volupté lipsticks, I need to buy 10. Obviously not in one go as these lipsticks retail around the $55 mark thus meaning I would be incredibly poor until my next payday comes, but they’re definitely something I want to collect.

I bought this beauty a couple of months ago whilst on my trip to Thailand, and I thought it was about time I finally write a little review on it.

We all know how beautiful all YSL products are, especially these lipsticks, so I'm just going to skip over that section and dive straight into the formula. 

Pink In Devotion is my second Rouge Volupté lipstick, with the first being thPêche Faubourg. Unlike Pêche Faubourg, Pink In Devotion is a Volupté Shine, meaning it's less opaque but more moisturising. If you've tried/seen the regular Rouge Volupté lipsticks you will already know that they are very pigmented, very creamy but can be a little drying after a couple hours of wear. The Volupté Shines though, in my opinion, feel amazing on your lips all day long. It seriously feels as though you just have a lip balm on!

Pink in Devotion is a bright, warm-toned pink lipstick that would look great on many different skin tones. Although, these are meant to be sheer and "natural" looking, you can build up the colour to make it more noticeable. These are perfect for those who suffer permanent dry lip syndrome like myself or who just want a luxurious everyday lipstick.

The one thing that does suck about this lipstick is the wear time. Due to the lightweight, sheer formula, it only lasts about 3 hours (without eating and drinking) before it begins to fades. Nevertheless, I'm not too fussed about re-applying  as it means I get to whip out the lipstick and fall in love with the packaging all over again.

Unfortunately the lighting is a little off in the photo below but you can already tell how lovely Pink In Devotion is.

As you can tell I just cannot say anymore good things about Pink In Devotion. It seriously has become a staple in my makeup collection and it actually worth the hefty price tag (although I only paid $30 instead of $55). 

If you haven't had the chance to test out the Rouge Volupté Shine lipsticks before, I highly and I mean highly recommend that you do. Pink In Devotion has become my go to lipstick for when I need something that is always going to look good and not make my lips into the Sahara Desert.
