YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipsticks

As I'm sure you all know by now, lipstick is my weakness. Especially beautiful packaged lipsticks like the YSL Rouge Volupte's. I still remember buying my first one and cherishing it like it was the crown jewels. The gold packaging and the beautiful logo wrapped around a band of colour which represents the colour of the lipstick inside is just so beautiful. Basically, it's what makeup packaging dreams are made of and in my opinion, one that can't be beaten. With this being, you can imagine my excitement when five of YSL's brand spanking new Rouge Volupte lipsticks arrived at my door. Such a dream!

I already owned three YSL lipsticks prior to receiving this lovely lot but until now, I'd never tried one of the shine formulas. I think the reason for that is because I'm not usually a fan of sheer lipsticks as they don't tend to be all that pigmented and if I'm spending a lot of money on makeup, I want it to be something that will actually show up on me. However, since trying these lipsticks, I may have been converted as they're so beautiful to wear!

The texture of them is amazing - they feel so moisturising on the lips and provide a nice wash of colour without being too heavy for day wear. They also have the most lovely glossy finish which I personally love as I'm not keen on matte lips. I also have to mention the scent as they smell like watermelon - seriously, they're good enough to eat. 

L-R: #41 Corail A Porter, #43 Rose Rive Gauche, #45 Rouge Tuxedo, #46 Orange Perfecto & #47 Beige Blouse

In terms of shades, due to their more sheer finish, they're all so wearable and would suit all skin tones. As you can see from my swatches, they're all beautiful shades for S/S and there isn't one I wouldn't wear. At the moment my favourite is Beige Blouse which is a beautiful dusky pink and the perfect 'my lips but better' shade. It's been coming everywhere with me recently and even made an appearance on my Snapchat as my current fave lipstick so if you follow me on there (@kayljcouture) you may have seen it. I think the other shades will be perfect for the Summer months as they all fall into the peach/orange and pink colour family. 

Overall I'd say these lipsticks are beautiful and would recommend anyone to try them, especially if you like lip products that also moisturise your lips and have a glossy finish. Not to mention look beautiful sat on your dressing table!

You can buy them here for £26.00 each here and from YSL counters nationwide.


  1. I dont own any YSL lipstick but I want it so bad just for the packaging. Goals! ahah


  2. Beige Blouse is beautiful shade! I actually prefer bold shades to be more on the sheer shade. I feel more comfortable wearing them. And i really want to add some colour in my makeup collection for spring / summer, so these sound perfect :) xx
