Nude lipsticks are my greatest obsession, and finding one that does not wash you out and make you look like the queen of the zombie apocalypse can be a challenge. To date, my very favorite peachy pink nude has been TOM FORD Beauty Lip Color in Nude Vanille (Reviewed HERE), but I must say that I recently purchased Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick in Nude Beige, and I am madly in love with it! While it too, is a peachy pink, it is a bit deeper and darker than Nude Vanille, but it is definitely in the same color family.
The consistency of Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick is very creamy, buttery soft and silky smooth. It glides across the lips like a dream, deposits opaque color evenly, and it neither settles into lip lines, nor does it bleed. It boasts a gorgeous sheen, is very comfortable on this lips, and I find it lightly moisturizing, rather than drying. Nude Beige, which is described as a, "creamy neutral beige" is a stunning peachy pink nude that is infinitely flattering on the skin, and it can be sheered out for a natural wash of color, or built up for maximum opacity. I get about 3 hours of wear before I need to reapply it, but if I apply it over a more matte textured lip balm it increases the wear-time significantly. While it has the well-known YSL sweet, fruity scent, I find that it fades soon upon application.
An object of desire, this award-winning lipstick is wrapped in a romantic, elegant gold case that exudes luxury. Each signature shade saturates lips in captivating color that's intensely pigmented, and imparts an irresistible glossy shine. The long-lasting, comforting formula is highlighted with a unique Color-shine Complex that leaves lips visibly smoother, plumper and more radiant. Light, silky texture smooths on a veil of satiny, sensual color that's altogether alluring.
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick in Nude Beige compared to TOM FORD Beauty Lip Color in Nude Vanille. The outer swatches are sheered out, whereas the center swatches are built up for greater opacity. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Silky Sensual Radiant Lipsticks also contains an SPF 15 for sun protection!

Nude Vanille is a gorgeous nude. Wow.ReplyDelete
It really is. It has been my very favorite nude for some time now!Delete
This is my kind of color. I know I'd love it if it didn't have fragrance. Plus it's less money than the Tom Ford so that's a plus.ReplyDelete
It is your kind of color. For some reason the fragrance isn't that pronounced in this. I would urge you to smell a fresh tube to see if it's too much for you because if it's not, this is definitely a shade that would be GORGEOUS on you! It definitely is a lot more affordable than our beloved TOM FORD Nude Vanille!Delete
That shade looks so lovely on you! Plus I love YSL's packaging!ReplyDelete
YSL's packaging is extraordinary! Thanks, I'm glad that you like the shade on me– it definitely works well with my complexion!Delete
