YSL Rouge Volupte Shine And Lipstick

Please tell me I'm not the only one who finds it beyond satisfying placing a beautifully cased lipstick on their lipstick stand for the whole world to see, but also find it even more satisfying when the actual product itself is just as beautiful.
Take the YSL Rouge Volupte shine and lipstick, for example. 



Top- 8 (Rouge Volupte Shine) Bottom-1(Rouge Volupte Lipstick)

If you can look at this packaging and not immediately want to buy it, I applaud you.

Shade 8 is a you're lips but better rosey shade with tiny little shimmers running through it and shade 1 is a matte, more pigmented version (colour wise not formula). Both of which can be worn day/night and with many eye make-up looks. I prefer having muted more wearable shades so I can get a lot of use out of them for the price. I like to feel like I haven't wasted money, seeing as these cost £25 (!) each. The formula is very glossy, the only thing I could compare it to is the Revlon Lip Butters, but slightly more light weight on the lips. There's also a lot of pigmentation in these, with one swipe you get an intense amount of colour and they also leave a slight stain behind once the gloss has faded. 

As much as I 100% say they are worth the money, I wish they'd add some sort of scent to them, like MAC's trademark vanilla, for added luxury. But they just thrash the competition with their packaging and formula and I know i'm not the only one who has succumbed to this. They also make perfect gifts.
