Can You Ever Have Fuchsia in Excess?

Hello everyone, from gosh knows how many miles of the ground! I'm currently sitting on the most turbulent plane (seriously, I'm a little scared), ears popped, with no food in my belly and on my way to Canada! So I thought this would be the perfect time to write up a post on the newest member of my lipstick collection. I saw this beaut while browsing in Sehpora - well, I didn't see the lipstick, just the wonderful ad with a gorgeous woman and her even more gorgeous lip color. It was bright, it was fuchsia, and I needed it. I didn't get it when I automatically saw it (good little beauty blogger *pats head*) and I didn't get it when I saw it the few times after that. Sometimes it was in stock, but mostly I didn't get it because it was sold out. Then one day I find myself in a shiny new (to me) mall in Jersey with a 10% off coupon. I couldn't resist at that point. I made a beeline for the YSL section, nabbed the color and I'm now the proud owner of YSL's Rouge Volupte Shine in No. 5 Fuchsia in Excess

I'm no stranger to YSL's Rouge Volupte line of lipsticks - they're the ones I usually treat myself to when I've got a coupon and a craving for one (or my boyfriend decides to be generous on Valentine's Day, haha) You can check out the review of the other two over here. The packaging of Fuchsia in Excess is gorgeous with the gold throughout all of it. I love the detail on the center with logo and the color of the lipstick in the band. I always appreciate little details on the outside packaging that let you know the color of the product inside - saves so much time when you're digging through to find the one you need. The formula of this lipstick is outstanding, which should be expected when paying $30 for a lipstick. It just glides on the lips without accentuating any flaky or dry areas. The formula is quite moisturizing and the staying power is actually a bit better than the other two I've had. A little may transfer when you eat or drink, but the color still stays vibrant. It's semi-opaque on the lips and leaves a shiny finish - nothing too glossy. Fuchsia in Excess is almost a berry toned fuchsia. It looks bright but not too bright and I feel like I'll be able to wear this color any time in any season. It looks great when I wear my most recent gold/purple eyeliner combo and stunning with a neutral eye. 

So at $30 a pop it's def. one of those lipsticks that you 'treat' yourself to but with the amazing pigmentation, quality, and array of colors, they'll lipsticks worth investing in!

    1. This is probably my favorite even though I only have 3 of them. MAC is great but there's something so classy and elegant about these! Any color, really, would be great!!

    1. I hope you do because they're really nice quality and somehow my wallet never hurts when I buy one (maybe my man-friends wallet did the first time, haha, I didn't ask) but seriously, they're so good that I can't regret it! When you're ready to treat yourself to one, a color will stand out :)
