Review | YSL Rogue Volupte in #13 Peach Passion


A YSL lipstick is something I have always lusted after, the colours are gorgeous, the packaging is stunning and they have such a luxurious look about them that would look amazing amongst any makeup collection, but at £25.00 each I've always been put off by them. However it was recently my birthday so decided to finally get one of the Rogue Volupte's, because I knew it was something I would never justify buying with my own money even if I always want it. This is a shade I've wanted ever since seeing Zoella use it in her everyday makeup, it looked neutral enough for any eye look but had enough colour to brighten up the face.


The shade really is so unique, I had been searching for a dupe ever since seeing Zoella use it, but had no success at all. It is a gorgeous peach shade which translates to almost a pale orange when applied straight to both lips, so I personally prefer to apply it only to one lip, put my lips together so they both get some colour and pat it down, so it's not too orange on my lips. Due to my pale skin I don't suit orange lipsticks or lipsticks with a strong warm undertone, so will never be able to apply this like a proper lipstick, but if anything that means I'll use less of it!

The wear time is a couple of hours, so just because it's got a high price don't be expecting to not need to top up. It has a creamy and hydrating formula which has the feeling of it sliding around the lips, but it glides on to the lips effortlessly. However if you have really dry lips, these are ones to steer clear of because they have a tendency to fall in to the creases of the lips, but this is only if you have really dry lips!

I absolutely love this lipstick and it really does suit any look, whether I'm doing a heavy eye look or something really simple I know this will work with it. I think every girl should own at least one luxurious lipstick, whether to them luxury means MAC, YSL, Chanel or Tom Ford, it is something special I think every girl should have. However, at £25.00 each I still don't know if I will ever justify buying one myself, but further shades are defiantly something to add to my future birthday and Christmas lists!

What's your favourite luxurious lipstick?

  4. I've wanted a YSL lipstick for so long, the packaging is just gorgeous and the shades look amazing, especially this one. I just haven't been able to justify the price tag, they are so expensive here in NZ. Although i've just looked at feel unique and they ship internationally cheaply, eek! And with that extra 10% off.. I am so tempted to make a purchase!

    1. I know, I sometimes feel like I'm not posh enough to be whipping a YSL lipstick that looks this pretty out of my bag ;)
