To preface this post: I've been MIA lately and my posts have been a bit sporadic, but I'm really excited to finally announce a career change! Within the past month, I've transitioned into a new role at HSN, a move that I feel aligns me with what I'm very passionate about, and I couldn't be more thrilled. That being said, I've taken the past two weeks to focus on transitioning into my new role, and I hope to provide you with more consistent posts and features from this point forward!
I received my latest Voxbox from Influenster about a month ago, and am finally excited to share its contents with you! It was another Yves Saint Laurent Voxbox, and this time, contained two full-sized lipsticks from its Rouge Pur Couture line, one in Fuchsia, the other in Rose Stiletto. While Fuchsia is a bright, sassy and ostentatious color, Rose Stiletto is more on the neutral side, but still very much rich in color.
Yves Saint Laurent's Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks are very moisturizing - my lips tend to get chapped very easily, which makes buying lipsticks a little on the difficult side, but I love the way these lippies feel! They don't suck moisture out of my lips, and I love how silky smooth the application is.
I didn't think that I would love a lipstick color as ostentatious as Fuchsia, but after giving it a try, I am absolutely in love and can definitely see myself trying other bold and edgy colors in the future. Rose Stiletto is such a great color for a casual work day or evening out, and still has the perfect pop of color to make a statement.
Overall, I really enjoy the moisturizing qualities of the Rouge Pur Couture line, and love the ease of application, but I do wish it was longer-wearing. Compared to other lipsticks that I have tried (that don't keep my lips moisturized, unfortunately), the Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks did not last nearly as long. If the formula could be altered to incorporate longer wear, this line of lipsticks would be perfect for me, and would absolutely justify its price ($36)!
