Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte - 17 Red Muse

I was quickly lured by YSL's Rouge Volupte packaging and bought four shades. I am a packaging girl through and through and I think this particular product is simply divine. The shade I swatched is 17 Red Muse and is a classic red. Although the lipstick itself is creamy, moisturising and glides well on the lips, I found it messy and tricky to apply. The bullet seems quite big and it is absolutely essential to wear a lip liner. After the first few wears the bullet becomes 'hard to control' and is challenging to apply (check your local YSL counter)! I also found that this lipstick bled. Pros are packaging and the light, fruity scent. I am not sure I would purchase this product again, but given I have four shades to get through I know I'll have this product in my bag for some time!
