[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] It’s coming up to that time of year again, when my inbox is full of the most tenuous links to Valentine’s Day. However, it does feel like the right day for a brand new lipstick, either as a gift to self in the most dreary month of the year, a gift to a friend for exactly that same reason or because you’re doing something special with your beloved.
YSL’s collector edition of Rouge Pur Couture in Red Is My Saviour is a satin formula with a beautiful sheen – the colour is just lovely with some pink and orange undertones (to my eye). As soon as I put it on, it brought some life to my face.
In terms of last, gosh, yes it lasts but really it will depend upon what you’re doing – eat anything oily wearing any lipstick and you can kiss it goodbye in double quick time – or, speaking of, kissing is going to wear it away although I did not surprise Mr BBB by putting that particular event to the test. I think we can safely say that your beloved will also end up wearing it and I’ve yet to meet the lipstick that is truly ‘kissproof’.
I almost forgot to mention that the lid has two red snakes entwined to create a heart. The good news is (there is no bad news) that Escentual.com has 25% off taking the price from £31 to £23.25 HERE. Better still, Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick Lip Colour has had a big price drop in most colours – the one I’m looking at, Corail Dolmain, is currently £11.66 instead of £35. Whatever birthdays you have coming up to buy for, snap them up HERE! I just don’t see these ever being this price again.
