Nude/Pink Lip Trio - Featuring YSL Rouge Volupte Perle

As I sit here sipping down cough medicine like it's my morning coffee, I decided to write about a new lip trio I am loving.  Well I haven't been able to love it in days accept for in the Emergency Room!  Bronchitis is NOT my friend!  Anyhew, here is a new lipstick that Detective Lynn picked up for me on her recent romp through NYC! 

This is the YSL Rouge Volupte Perle lipstick in #107 Beige Impetueux.  YSL came out with the Perle line of Rouge Volupte sometime last year.  I have one which I like but it is a little bit gritty.  I read about the new ones being less gritty and more wearable than the original YSL RV's that are very matte.  If you have any sort of dryness on your lips these are not for you.  They also need to be dabbed on and not put on straight from the tube.  I have 2 of these and wear them only sometimes, even though the colors are gorgeous. 

The new Perle is very creamy and can be applied straight out of the tube.  The color that I got is a ... SURPRISE SURPRISE, a light nude pink.  I will swatch it below so you can see just how pretty it is.  I wear this color with Whirl lip liner from MAC and it is just gorgeous.  I have also worn this with Chanel's Sweet Beige Glossimer over the top.  This glossimer is the only item I ended up getting from the Holiday Collection.  I thought I would give my Nordstrom's card a break this holiday season! 

Here are the colors -

For thew swatches, the lipstick is in the middle, Sweet Beige Glossimer is on top, and the bottom is Whirl liner.  This trio is gorgeous together.  This is a high end nude/pink lip!  I am sure that there are a ton of less expensive products that would look the same.  I have to be honest and say that for me, there really is nothing like a gorgeous YSL lipstick and Chanel Glossimer to make me happy when skies are grey! 

In the case of finding yet another, Nude/Pink lip trio to grace my pout - This case is SOLVED!

Thanks! So do I!! They are pure luxury in my opinion! Tom Ford's aren't too bad either. I am so tempted to get another but trying to hold off on purchasing, yet another lipstick! xoxo
