One of the first luxury lipsticks I ever bought was the YSL Rouge Volupte in #13 Peach Passion, and ever since I’ve been a big fan of the brand and their stunning product range.
In February YSL launched their brand new Rouge Volupte Shine Oil in Stick range and I’m very excited to share swatches and my review with you today!
L-R – #41 Corail a Porter, #43 Rose Rive Gauche, #45 Rouge Tuxedo, #47 Beige Blouse & #51 Rose Saharienne
I’ll start off by saying I’m not (usually) a fan of sheer/shiny lipsticks. I much prefer a matte finish packed with pigment & colour, so I was intrigued as to how much I’d like them but they pleasantly surprised me. Despite being super moisturising, they have a good amount of pigment which is fantastic (I would really hate to have spent £26 on a lipstick for it to not even show on my lips).
To me they have a watermelon scent (which I think is supposed to be mango) and they seriously leave my lips feeling so soft and moisturised with a gorgeous juicy colour. My go-to is Beige Blouse which is a ‘my lips but better’ shade but I also adore #43.
As usual with YSL products the packaging is just sublime and they have taken pride of place on my vanity desk. How any girl could resist these beauties is a mystery! I have completely fallen head over heels for these so much so that I haven’t worn anything other on my lips since getting them.
They retail at £26 each and are available from YSL counters nationwide!
