This lipstick comes in beautiful gold casing with the YSL logo inscribed around it, with the lipstick shade in the background. The packaging is probably the most beautiful I've ever seen for a lipstick. You absolutely wouldn't be embarrassed to take this out of your handbag! It certainly looks and feels expensive. It feels a little weightier than your average lipstick. I think you can imagine my horror when I was opening this when it first arrived and I managed to drop it onto my tiled floor! Fortunately no damage was done, but I think I came pretty close to having a heart attack...
This lipstick has a creamy, almost buttery texture. It's so soft and moisturising that when I when I first applied it I wasn't expecting it to last very long! It applies very smoothly. The only thing that I don't like about this lipstick is the scent. It has a very fruity smell. Fruity scents really aren't my sort of thing, I much prefer sweeter scents, but it's not a big deal.
I can wear this for over four to five hours or so before it begins to fade a little. It survived coffee, but I'd still recommend keeping this in your bag to touch up. I was impressed with the lasting time considering how creamy this lipstick is!
Overall, it's a nice luxury. It's great if you have Boots points to spare or gift vouchers, but I think I'd still cringe at the thought of spending that much on a lipstick.
This lipstick costs £23.50 and can be purchased from Boots or Debenhams.
Discloure: I bought this product with my Boots points.
