As promised, this post is a swatch and review on my Yves Saint Laurent rouge Volupte Lipsticks in 13 Peach Passion and 30 Faubourg Peach. I purchased these as I was looking for the perfect milky peach. Originally, when I tried on Peach Passion in Sephora I was like OMFG, found it. Of course, Sephora lighting isn't always right, so when I returned home and tried it in natural lighting I was like something's wrong. However, I really liked the texture of the lipstick, so I didn't want to return it. Instead I decided to throw out a huge sum of money for a second one. I picked up Faubourg Peach, and boy, I'm really satisfied with both of these lipsticks. Please understand that the lip swatches are very light because I wear them like this. If I had applied a bit more, I would have full coverage lipstick. I just like it more sheer.

As you can see in the swatches, they look very natural because I only patted the lipsticks on. If I had swiped, the color of my lips would be totally replaced with the color of the lipstick.
Peach Passion is a slightly bright milky coral pink with just a touch of peach. the name is a bit misleading as it implies that the lipstick will be more peach, however, it didn't work out for me that way. Applied sheerly, you will get a nice coral pink, applied opaque and you will get a true coral pink. Faubourg Peach is a true milky peach. Applied lightly, my lips will make the lipstick a bit more pink, applied opaquely and my lips will be totally peach.
These lipsticks have no shimmer, however, because of the creamy texture, they leave a pretty sheen. Like I said, these are amazingly creamy and smooth, applying them is like apply butter on your lips, and that's why these lipsticks are so renowned. You can definitely shose the intensity of these lipsticks: pat for sheer application, and swipe for more color. These lipsticks feel very moisturizing on my lips, and they actually seem to mask the lines in my lips rather than accentuate. One downfall to the amazing creaminess, is the wear time. If I don't eat then I can get 3-4 hours if I'm careful. With eating, these lipsticks are basically gone.
The packaging of these lipsticks is so dang amazing. I feel so rich holding and applying the lipstick. It's a rosy gold with the YSL emblem on the side and you can see the lipstick color through the packaging. There's also a mirror on the cap of the lipstick. One problem I have though is, like most luxury lipsticks, the name of the color is not on the lipstick, only the number is written.
Overall, I really recommend these lipsticks, if you have the money. If you don't have the money, opt for MAC Cremesheens, although you will see a huge difference if you were to try the Rouge Volupte's. These are seriously some of the best lipsticks I've ever tried.
