I do apologize in advance if this post makes you want to storm out to your nearest YSL counter and get your mitts on a new lippy. At least that’s how I felt when I stumbled upon this YSL Rouge Volute in #11 Rose Culte (here) for the first time.
It took me some time to get hold of it but now that it’s being added to my collection I think it’s safe to say that it is downright incredible. We bonded with the very first application and its uber bright and bold deep fuchsia / rose shade is literally to die for. The color of the lipstick is rather unique and I can’t really compare it to anything in my stash. It’s really vibrant but still pretty wearable and I love how classy and sophisticated it looks on the lips. Rose Culte is one of those shades that make me feel 10x more sexy and feminine and boost my confidence on the spot. I’d say that the color is pretty neutral so I imagine it would suit a lot of deferent skin tones. I like to pair the lippy with a hint of pink blush, a dash or eyeliner and lashes coated with volumizing mascara – Victoria’s Secret bombshell vibes right here!
The Rouge Volupte lippies are the crème de la crème of lipsticks in my books and Rose Culte is no exception. It is cushiony soft and buttery, which makes it a breeze to apply. It goes on smooth and even and feels super hydrating and comfortable on. Rose Culte is really rich and pigmented and you get full-blown color with one swipe across the lips. The good news don’t stop here though and there is no awkward fading or bleeding in different areas with this one. The glossy finish is absolutely beautiful and if you fancy getting more of a stain effect you can lightly just dab the product on the lips and the results are beautiful. As with any Rouge Volupe lipstick, Rose Cult is not the longest lasting of the bunch and it stays on for no more than two hours. Ouch. The good thing, however, is that I don’t really mind taking the snazzy packaging out of my bag and reapplying the lippy, plus it does stain the lips a bit so it’s all good. Apart from that though, Culte Rose has stolen my heart and I am in looooooove.
Have you tried Culte Rose before?
Lots of love,
