Lipstick luxury: YSL Rouge Volupte in 'Sensual Silk'

Hey Girls!

So you know with a blog name like 'budget boutique' I'll always be a drugstore girl at heart (after all I can't thank it enough for making me look better on a budget, collection concealer anyone?), but when gorgeous high end things come into my life I can't help but go all gooey eyed over them, especially when they are as pretty as my newest lipstick. Meet the YSL Rouge Volupte in 'Sensual Silk'...


I got given this little beauty as a gift for doing my friend's wedding make up on New Years Eve which I was so grateful for as my student loan certainly doesn't cover £24 lipsticks, no matter how pretty they are!  You've most probably heard  quite a lot about these before as they've gained quite the cult status amongst the blogging world and I'm guessing the main thought from people who haven't tried them is 'are you paying nearly thirty pound for the packaging?' Well undeniably the luxurious gold packaging is one of the major attractions (Just imagine getting this out to reapply, preferably in front of lots of people), but you'll be pleased to know the actual product is just as amazing. The creamy bullet gildes onto the lips so smoothly you do feel like you're wearing silk, no lip balm needed and it's also surprisingly pigmented for a nude shade, very much like a MAC cremesheen formula. I've got to say 'Sensual silk', or number '2' as it's also known, is pretty much the perfect nude shade too as it's dusky pink undertones ensures concealer lips are avoided and instead you are left with a peachy pink sheen that lasts for a good couple of hours before you need to reapply (although as I said before this hasn't stopped me from reapplying it at every public opportunity so far. Can you blame me?)  So whilst this may not be an essential purchase you need to instantly rush out and make, there's no harm in popping it on your wish list for the next present occasion or general splurge now is there...

I haven't done much today apart from work, but I did go to town with Rosie yesterday and found some absolute steals of Primarni bargains that I will share with you shortly! For now though it's back to essays until I cave in and watch some rubbishy Saturday night tele, Splash anyone? Have a wonderful weekend!

Love Meg

  13. Oh wow this sounds like an absolute dream! My lips are so dry so I always find lipsticks a bit of a struggle as applying them on top of lip balm can make them look a bit streaky sometimes, but this one sounds like the perfect formula! I'm still hunting for my perfect nude shade, this is gonna be going straight to the top of my wishlist :) The packaging is super pretty too! Your eye make-up looks amazing in that photo :)
    Love Holly x

  14. Ooh that is beautiful! I still can't bring myself to buy high end lipsticks yet, especially because I normally store them all at the bottom of my handbag, todays count is 4! xx
