YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick | Review

I have been after a YSL lipstick, for quite some time now, although i’ve never been able to find a way to justify the price tag. So when Me & Aaron arrived at Duty Free before our holiday, It was the perfect reason to finally pick one up! 
I had swatches all over my arms, trying to find the perfect one. Aaron had a little input into which lipstick he liked, and we finally agreed that we shared a lot of love for #16, a gorgeous true coral colour. I thought it would look perfect with a tan, which I was hoping I’d come back with after 2 weeks in Mexico..
Aaron, so nicely, decided to treat me to the lipstick, knowing how long I had been lusting over them. At Duty Free, the lipsticks are £20.80, which I still thought was a little steep, but since wearing it almost everyday on holiday, It was money well spent!!
Not only does the lipstick come in gorgeous, luxurious gold packaging, it also has a fruity scent, which just makes it even more gorgeous. The formula is so creamy, and glides onto your lips. It doesn’t stick to any dry bits on your lips, keeping them feeling moisturised. It feels a little bit like lipgloss but without the tackiness or gloopiness. If that makes any sense… 🙂
I don’t know if I would pay £24 for one of these beauties, but i’m definitely going to pick a new shade up when I go to Duty Free again in September. They are definitely worth the £20.80 that I paid.
I’d love to here which YSL Rouge Volupte shades you have been loving?
