-Classy packaging.Even the YSL metal case looked extremely elegant in the opening scene of fi hagat video clip by nancy ajram (lebanese singer).
-SPF 15 to protect your lips
-Neutral Soft Rose Pink Color.One of a kind pink and many said they like the opera rose on me.It is a rose pink that does not lean to cool or warm so it won't make your teeth looking yellow and i can see many skin tone could wear Opera Rose, asian or caucasian.If a pink lipstick make your teeth looking yellow then the lipstick is not for you.
-Wide range of colors to choose for.I believe there would be at least 1 color that will suit each girl from rouge volupte range.
-Consider expensive.When you have to pay 34 usd per lipstick (around RM145++ if you buy through malaysian online seller)
-No YSL counter in Malaysia so its hard to choose the best colour for yourself.Please do not rely on the online swatches as you might be shocked if the lipstick color look garish on you if wrongly chosen. -Heavily scented.The sharp mango smell in the ysl lipstick bothered me and can make me feel nauseous especially when i wear it in the morning without having breakfast first.However the soft vanilla-scented in mac lipstick never give me this kind of problem.In fact i like it!
-Too Creamy Texture.I dont say its HYDRATING but the texture is overly creamy and can cause the lipstick bleeding across your lips and looking uneven.
-Not long lasting.
-Hard to apply.Because it is very pigmented you really have to exfoliate your lips to wear this stuff! It can stuck on dry patches and really exaggerates them and it gave me trouble when its 'floating' on my lips after i applied it.Remember when we melted butter and we can see the solid milk particles floating in the pot,yes the lipstick is floating like the solid milk particles on my lips.I dont know why this happened but i face the same problem everytime i apply it directly from tube.I think the best way to apply is by dab it on to my lips and then pat/blend with my fingers, building up the colour as I wish.
-Settle in the lip lines.If you have fine lines on lips like me this would be a problem beacause the lipstick could sink into the lines.
-Nameles/Codeless.The casing comes with no name or code making its hard to differentiate if you have many rouge volupte lipstick.

Would i repurchase:Maybe if YSL is available in Malaysia and i can try different colors and do some tests first before buying.Right now i am eager to buy urban decay revolution lipstick.It caught my attention when i tried it at sephora.I can say it is way better than my YSL lipstick in term of price,color and texture.
