We meet again my dear readers in the sweet month of November and this time you'll find me talking about my favorite makeup product in the entire world - yes - THE ALMIGHTY LIPSTICK.
Inheriting this passion (now transformed into a real addiction) from my mom who can rock a lipstick anytime and who in her entire life has never used any other makeup product, my passion for lipsticks began when I was just a kid as I was watching her putting on lipstick and I was counting down the days when I would do the same. I was fascinated about that little stick who can just transform you from an ordinary person into a princess.
The lipstick for me is not just a makeup product, an object, the lipstick is a part of me. When I have days when I might look like a zombie, or just a gloomy one, putting on lipstick makes me feel simply amazing. When I put my lipstick on, I feel like I rule the world. All my lipstick lovers out there, you know what I am talking about, others may consider me crazy or superficial. I don't care! Love me or hate me, this is ME!
In today's post I am beyond excited to show you and talk about my absolute favorite VoxBox received from Influenster so far - the Yves Saint Laurent VoxBox. If you don't know what Influenster is, let me tell you that Influenster is an exclusive online community of over 1.5 million social savvy shoppers that stay on top of the latest product news and expert tips, review products, share honest opinions with brands and the community and test products for free based on their social media influence.

If you follow me on Instagram, I was teasing you with a sneak peek of the content of this box a while back. Well, inside the black elegant box there were two Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks from the Rouge Pur Couture collection, one in number 9 - ”Rose Stiletto” and one in number 19 - ”Fuchsia”.

To say that I was mega happy and grateful for being chosen from so many great Influenster members out there to test these products is an understatement. Are you kidding me? Lipsticks? Better yet? YSL lipsticks?
As a lipstick addict and lover, I am proud to say that I do own a few YSL lipsticks and the quality of these products never failed my expectations. That is why when I want to splurge, YSL is one of my top three brands that I like to go for, definitely deserves every penny of those $36.
The two received lipsticks from the Rouge Pur Couture collection confirmed what I expected from the brand: high quality all the way through.
Better yet, let's see them in action!

The Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in number 9 - ”Rose Stiletto” is a rich berry rose - the perfect fall shade. Elegant and sumptuous, this lipstick matches my skin tone perfectly. It's a classic shade that you can never go wrong with, I can wear it both as a day time makeup as well as a night one. It feels so comfortable on my lips, it's like I was touched by a rose petal.

When I first saw the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in number 19 - ”Fuchsia” - magenta purple - I said ”Wow, now you're talking!”. Having such a fair complexion, you know me, I would never say ”no” to a bold color, because I like rocking a bold lipstick and this one is exactly what I needed. I received so many compliments wearing this lipstick, that one day I was literally walking on sunshine. Need to make a statement? This lipstick is on point!
I would like to sum up now with some essential facts that I've noticed wearing these lipsticks:
- luxurious packaging - hands down to YSL for this packaging, the lipstick itself is a masterpiece
- great smell - all those YSL lovers out there will recognize the unmistakable smell of this lipstick
- easy application - both lipsticks glided smoothly on my lips
- great coverage without any effort - I can really achieve great coverage with only one stripe/ application, but you can build it up as you desire
- rich pigmentation - both lipsticks are great when it comes to pigmentation
- long wearing - ”Rose Stiletto” stayed on me for about good long 6 hours, meanwhile ”Fuchsia” resisted more than 8 hours
- small transfer when I was eating and drinking
Both lipsticks match my skin tone very well, feel so comfortable on my lips, they are creamy, moisturizing (do not dry my lips all day long), do not bleed and let me tell you a secret I did not wear any lip liner, not to mention that beautiful satin radiance finish that brought me so many compliments. As I told you before, the lipsticks confirmed the quality that I have expected from the brand.
A very, very subjective conclusion the Influenster Yves Saint Laurent VoxBox was my favorite VoxBox so far, the ”little” lipstick addict inside me sure enjoyed playing with these jewels.
What do you think about Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks? Do you own any? Which ones are your favorites?
