YSL Indulgence

I am a huge lipstick fan. HUGE
It was only a week last Saturday I had a weak moment whilst browsing Cheapsmells
when I came across these beautiful YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks.
They were £5 off RRP so the temptation was even larger.

There were a variety of colours available so I checked some reviews on YouTube before purchasing.
I chose a fuchsia pink and a light pink.
Left: 10 Provocative Pink
Right: 7 Lingerie Pink

These lippies are SEXY. They have sexy names and just ooze class and sophistication. A welcome visitor to any dressing table, they are beautiful to look at. I remeber watching a Pixiwoo2/@TanyaBurr video once and she commented along the line of "I wish all lipsticks were as sexy as YSL". 
I feel the same.

They feel weighty in your hand and I love the classy gold design. Its really not going to be subtle getting one of these babies out of your purse!
Top: 7 Lingerie Pink
Bottom: 10 Provocative Pink 

The texture of the lipsticks are creamy. When looking at both lippies I saw two immediate dupes.
The 7 Lingerie Pinkis very similar to MAC Viva Glam Gaga.
It has similar blue undertones but is a much creamier texture.
(Sorry my lips need some love and attention!)
I know the Viva glam gaga was criticised for not being very wearable. 
But rather than slathering this colour on it is very buildable depending on how much you want you lips to POP.
My deepest apologies my Gaga lipstick disappeared a while ago so I cannot physically compare them!
10 Provocative Pink
This is a deep fuchsia, it really has the capabilities to give the POP you may want.
This lippie is for all those bold lipstick wearers out there...hurrah!
I really love the colour, it is so beautiful,
 I also have a dupe for this one also: MAC Girl About Town
Top: MAC Girl About Town
Bottom: YSL Rouge Volumpte 10 Provocative Pink

The YSL is a little darker than the MAC, but they colour pay off is very similar.
I have to say though that the YSL has a much better staying power than the MAC, although I adore it I have spent many nights constantly re-applying to achieve the same POP.
In Other News
My eyebrows continue to look almightily crap!,,,may book a consultation tomorrow!

I had a session on some toning tables today. Their basically machines that create resistance in order to tone your body. I am sceptical but it was good fun!

Its my birthday on Saturday :) :) :) !!
