The Summer Season: YSL #26 Tender Peach Rouge Volupte Lipstick

Yves Saint Laurent #26 Tender Peach Rouge Volupte Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a luxuriously creamy darkened peach. It has virtually no shimmer, but it has a subtle glossy sheen. Rouge Voluptes are very, very creamy and feel slippery on lips, but they do manage to stay on for two to three hours. They’re incredibly moisturizing and opaque, and since they’re so creamy and thick (but don’t feel heavy), they often de-emphasize any minor flaws on the lips, too. They are mango-scented, but I don’t notice any taste myself.
