YSL Rouge Pure Shine in 23 Candy Plum

Monday, 19 March 2012
Yves Saint Laurent are almost seen as the 'top dogs' of lipsticks. Most of the hype being around the Rouge Volupte lipsticks however I am a fan of their Rouge Pure Shines. These are their sheer lipsticks which are great for everyday use. I did not purchase this lipstick, I got it as a present from a friend whose mother works for YSL. So I'm not entirely sure how much this retails at but most YSL lipsticks are around £24 pound. I personally don't think that this is a fair price for the lipsticks but I would recommend them if you can get them cheaper.
 Candy Plum is a purpley colour that looks a bit scary in the bullet form but comes onto the lips as a very wearable colour. This is such a smooth and easy to apply. The pigmentation isn't too great and it does wear off quite soon, however this can be said for most sheer lipsticks. I really like the shade of this as it's quite unique. The only problem with this lipstick is that if there are any imperfections or chaps in your lips it shows them up(as pictured below). However this can easily be solved with a lip scrub.
Pros - Nice colour, applies well
Cons - Price, Lasting
