The Summer Season: YSL Fetish Pink Rouge Volupte Lipstick

YSL Fetish Pink Rouge Volupte Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pretty-in-pink shade with no shimmer but a creamy feel and look.  It’s a cooler, slightly pastel and blue-based pink, so it definitely lends itself as more complementary on cooler skin tones, but with the right pairings, it can be lovely on warmer skin tones.  (I always like a gray or black smoky eye with light cheeks and a pale pink lip!)  It has a lightly sweetened mango scent, but I didn’t notice any taste.  Rouge Volupte is a very, very creamy formula that glides onto lips with ease, and it is very pigmented with just one stroke.

Is this the right pink for you? Would you wear it?
