Happy New Year to you all! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful festive period with everything you wished for, material or otherwise 🙂
I was lucky enough to receive another Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre lipstick for Christmas. I’ve already told you about 108 – Ocre Rose and 111 – Rouge Helios both of which I love and I can now add 113 – Rose Parisien to my growing collection.
Rose Parisien is, in the bullet, indeed what I would call a rose tone and actually not quite what I was expecting, it looks a little more middle aged than I would usually go for. Beautiful, but not my usual kind of colour.
The application of this one is smooth and the lustre gives a soft pearl effect rather than metallic, frosty or golden and the big surprise is that it’s nothing like how it is in the tube, but I’m learning that with these lipsticks swatching is essential. Turns out this is a soft pink on my lips and I love it for that. It’s really quite beautiful.
See! Nothing like the bullet at all. Regardless this is gorgeous and these continue to be my favourite cosmetic discovery of the year. Truly beautiful formula, gorgeous finishes and they last really well too.
I will be heading out to buy more of these when I can. I just love them so much. Thanks hubby for a gorgeous lipstick!
