My Experience with Yves Rocher Rouge Vertige Effet Satine 36:
Yves Rocher has a wide range of lipsticks and I wanted to pick just one. I swatched a lot of shades and finally picked this one. The lipstick comes in a bullet lipstick form. It has a black casing and looks just like any other lipstick. The shade is written on the base of it. 36 Satin is what I picked. When I swatched, I felt this would look like a nude kind of color on me.
The consistency of the lipstick is creamy and it colors the lips with just one swipe. But the color is very sheer. I even tried applying more layers to build up the color but in vain. The color payoff is okay but not buildable. On the bullet, the color looks gorgeous but on the lips, it’s slightly lighter.
I have used it a few times and I feel that it slightly bleeds. It also transfers almost completely, even when you drink a glass of water. It would never survive a meal.
The lipstick does not last for more than 2 hours. Yes, longevity is extremely bad. I love my lipsticks and want them to stay on for at least 6 hours. But this was a total disappointment. Thankfully, it fades away evenly and does not look patchy.
The worst is yet to come. The fragrance! It has a fragrance which reminds me of perfumes old grannies wear here in Europe. I hate that fragrance and just cannot stand it. I wish that there was a way to mask it. The fragrance does last for some time, making it intolerable to me.
Overall, it’s a nice shade but not on the lips and I hate the fragrance. I do not think it’s worth the money and ould not repurchase any other shade either.
