Moisturizing Cream Lipstick/Rouge Creme Hydrant is a part of new YR makeup edition for 2009. I could hardly contain myself when I ordered one of these lipsticks in "61 Rose Galica". It finally arrived last week and I have to say I'm 100% satisfied! The pink colour is gorgeous, although not as light/nude as on their site. The texture is a dream, it glides on like butter. There's also some really nice subtle sparkle. Overall, this is light years away from old YR lipsticks I have tried in the past.
My favourite lipsticks are by Urban Decay, but considering their outrages prices, I had to turn elsewhere to be able to afford experimenting with different colours. Well, these new YR lipsticks are already 46% off in Sweden, and sooo much cheaper than UDs.
Comparing to UD (and most other) lipsticks this one contains more natural ingredients, whole 80% - 86%, depending on the shade. First two in the ingredient list are sesame and coconut oil. There's also shea butter, rosehip- & apricot kernel oil and vitamin E. Impressive, huh? This lipstick is so incredibly moisturizing, there's no need for a balm. Since it is quite creamy, it doesn't last as long on its own. But the famous powder trick makes it last much longer. I have nothing negative to say, except maybe that I wish there were more lighter shades available. But there are still so many lovely colours that I want to try, so I'll be ordering more!

EDIT 18 AUG 2009, I'm still loving this lipstick! In fact I ordered one more in 51 Beige Vanille which is a lovely beige nude, with some brown and no pink. Much nicer than expected. :)
