When I heard about the summer launches for the Yves Saint Laurent Pur Shine Summer collection which consisted of #32, and #33, I had to have #32 Frozen Mango, and there wasn't much that was going to stop me. The price tag on YSL makeup is a bit steep, but I was sure this would be a great investment since it was the perfect color that I was looking for.
To my disappointment, I was just not as pleased with the lipstick as I would have thought. The Pur Shine collection lipsticks are sheer, which is fine, but the moisturizing part was not very true for me. I felt as thought my lips felt very dry and slippery with this. It's strange because everyone claims that these lippies are so moisturizing, but I really don't like that waxy feeling some sheer lipsticks give off, and this lipstick gives off the ultimate waxy feeling. It does smell good though...
As for color, it is sheer, and as it looks like a perfect orangey-pink nude color, once on the lips, it's just as much of a nude as any other shade. Nothing special.
Overall, I don't feel as thought my $30 was spent to my complete satisfaction. It does come with beautiful typical YSL style packaging, very posh.
It's difficult to get these confused with the beloved Rouge Vulpte lipsticks from YSL, since those lipsticks are superb beyond comparison to most other lipsticks and totally worth the $30 price tag, but the Pur Shine line of lipsticks is kind of a downfall for their high price. It's more of a balm and should be priced like a balm.
