YVES SAINT LAURENT VOLUPTÉ PLUMP-IN-COLOUR LIPSTICK

As the first day of Spring is only 5 weeks away now and it is beginning to feel milder out, I felt it was the right time to buy a new lipstick, in readiness for the new season! 

I wanted a bright pink or fuchsia and discovered that YVES SAINT LAURENT had some beautiful shades and textures.  My favourites were: 

ROUGE VOLUPTÉ SHINE (a hydrating "Oil-In-Stick" shiny lipstick) in Rose Saint Germain (49), a bright pink, and Fuchsia in Rage (19), a dark, purple/blue toned fuchsia

and

VOLUPTÉ PLUMP-IN-COLOUR in Dazzling Fuchsia (02), a bright fuchsia - as in the photograph below.

YSL VOLUPTÉ PLUMP-IN-COLOUR 02 Dazzling Fuchsia

VOLUPTÉ PLUMP-IN-COLOUR contains coconut and pomegranate oil and is similar to  ROUGE VOLUPTÉ SHINE in that it is a moisturising, shiny lipstick.  It also has a black heart core which contains glycols to boost circulation and peppermint extract, designed to give a plumped effect.

I tried out the three lipsticks and decided to buy the VOLUPTÉ PLUMP-IN-COLOUR in Dazzling Fuchsia (02).  I thought that the colour was exactly what I wanted and I felt that the texture did have both a moisturising and plumping effect.

Contained in a glamorous case - silver with a gold and pink band with YSL initials around the middle, this beautiful lipstick actually made an excellent Valentine's week present from me to me! 

What next? Currently busy looking at Spring/Summer 2019 collections from my favourite designers to decide my fashion mood for Spring, I intend to "shop my wardrobe" for some key pieces before going on any shopping sprees! More about this to come in my next post.
