Hi there, makeup lovers!
I splurged on a luxury lipstick the other day at Sephora, and wanted to tell you guys a little bit about it 🙂
Introducing, the Yves St Laurent Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in 70 Le Nu!
I mean, as per usual, the packaging completely got me. It’s beautiful. The gold, the sparkles and the stars embossed on the actual lipstick. I can’t. I love it.
This packaging is limited edition and only out for the Holidays. However, you can still find these lipsticks in the regular packaging. Just no sparkles and no stars.
I chose the nude shade 70 Le Nu, because the other shades were a bit too pink or red for my liking. When I splurge on such an expensive product, I like to stay on the safe side.
Here is a little swatch on my super pale arm 😉
So, to be perfectly honest, the shade was not to my liking, even though I stayed on the safe side. On me, it looked more like a warm pinky shade that almost looked a bit orange-ish on my lips… For that reason, I might not keep it…
In regards to the formula, no complaints there, whatsoever! It is a sheer finish. It feels very hydrating, is super comfortable to wear, and it has a pretty decent staying power for a sheer lipstick. It feels like I’m applying some sort of expensive treatment on my lips 🙂
As an added bonus, the lipstick smells like Heaven! Like a mix of bubble bath and expensive perfume!
Overall, I would recommend this lipstick for the gorgeous limited edition packaging, especially if you are a makeup collector 😛
I do like the formula, even if I usually look for more opaque lipsticks. I feel like I am applying an expensive lipstick on my lips. Unfortunately, I wish they came out with more shades, as this particular selection did not work out too well for me.
