I can’t believe it’s the final day of 2016! Can someone please tell me where this last year has disappeared too? Saying that, I’m beyond excited what 2017 will bring… Eek! And as this will be my final beauty post of the year, I wanted to write about my favourite find; the YSL Beauty Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick.
YSL Beauty Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick
A truly cult lipstick; The YSL Beauty Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick combines voluptuous glide-and-go colour with comfort and care. Thanks to 6 sensorial oils your lips are kissed with long-lasting moisture making this combination perfect for daily puckering. The Rouge Volute Shine is wrapped in a romantic, elegant, gold case with a contrasting silver tone logo and lipstick colour match panel.
Available in 30 dazzling shades, from semi-sheer to more intense, there’s literally a shade for everyone – Apply directly on the lips for a moment of pure pleasure.
I said I was never going to spend this much on a lipstick, so I’ve had to eat my words! I now own three… Oops! And I’m already contemplating a fourth (well I did purchase the others during the sales). This is truly a luxury, couture lip product. It’s highly pigmented, full colour and coverage with the beauty of a glossy shine. I first purchased the 49 Rose Saint Germain; a beautifully bright pink/coral. After every application my eyes literally gleamed with delight. So with pure enjoyment, I quickly purchased 45 Rouge Tuxedo; a feminine red along with 52 Trapeze Pink; a subtle pink/purple hue.
What I love about the YSL Beauty Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick formula compared to the original, is that it doesn’t settle into lip lines and is incredibly hydrating. In addition, I find this formula much more lightweight and comfortable. It feels more like a balm due to its moisturising properties, although it is creamier than a traditional balm and you still achieve a great colour. It has the usual YSL lipstick scent (which I think is mango?), and it lasts for about 2-3 hours on my lips.
Overall, I love this lipstick. I’ve been reaching for it most days and I can’t wait to share these shades in up-and-coming style posts. I love how hydrating and comfortable the formula is, and the shiny finish is quite natural and makes lips look incredibly soft and supple. I wouldn’t be surprised if another shade (or two) eventually find their way into my collection very soon.
