The links are to their "lipstick fall favorite" posts, so go go go! Check them all out! I'm excited to see what everyone else chose, as well.
What did I pick? Let's see.
|Ta-da! YSL Rouge Volupté in Forbidden Burgundy. It is the most beautiful dark fuchsia color. A brilliant berry, if you will. It has a glossy finish, and the formula is so smooth - it glides on!|
So I went to YSL, which I was trying not to do. Yes, a Rouge Volupté is only $2 more than a Rouge Dior, but it's a matter of principle. My cap for lipsticks is getting higher and higher. Eek.
But it's freaking YSL! Look at the gorgeous packaging! I will say that it faintly annoys me that only the top barrel twists, which seems like a very small place to grasp. Also, the fact that the lipstick formula is so smooth and creamy means that it does feather. So line your lips with a lip liner. And...that's the end of my list of cons. Because this one is damn beautiful.
|This is without liner, because I'm lazy. It's still not so bad in terms of feathering, but if you want really precise application, go with a liner.|
And, bonus! I've decided...it may be time to tackle those FOTDS. I really like to see a full face shot when I look at lipstick reviews and swatches, so...maybe you will too. And I'm in good company, right? *nudges fellow Lipstick Bandits*
|I currently hate my hair. It is being cut off in a few weeks.|
