“I wanna scream and shout and let it all out
and scream and shout and let it out
We sayin oh we oh we oh we oh
We sayin oh we oh we oh we oh..”

Yes! I am singing right now. I finally have YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick in my life. It has been a long journey from the time I wanted this bad boy and I finally got it last month. I have been wanting to post pictures on Instagram, but somehow controlled my emotions.
YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Lipsticks are available in 19 shades (as shown on the website). The one that I picked up is in shade 16 Orange Impertinent. My preferred color hue ranges from coral to nudes.
So without wasting any time lets just jump into the review.

OMG! The packaging is so GLAM and LUXURIOUS. The golden case is heavy with YSL logo on it. You can check the shade of the lipstick without opening it up.
Love love love the packaging. I dropped the lipstick once on the floor which clicking pictures. And, believe it or not my heart was in my mouth. To my surprise there was no damage 😀


Before starting with the formula, let me tell you that I initially was inclined towards YSL Rouge Volupté lipsticks as they have higher coverage. Unbelievably they are discontinued and I went with Rouge Volupté shine.

If I have to describe the formula in one word it would be “Moisturizing”. The consistency of the product is smooth which makes the application easy. It glides on the lips like butter. Definitely requires multiple coats to build the color.
As mentioned in the product description it has shine and is extremely comfortable.

Everything has a dark side so do these YSL lipsticks. It stays on for less than 2 hours on my lips. The packaging is so beautiful that I don’t mind reapplying multiple time, but I wish if the lasting power was longer. I am too lazy to do touch ups.

Apply directly on the lips for a moment of pure pleasure. The lip brush can also be used to spread the color over the lips or to add a second layer of lip color with precision.

The swatch on the hand comes out completely different than on lips. On the lips it looks pinkish coral.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick is completely worth the splurge. With the variety in the shade range there is something for everyone here. Just try the shade on lips prior purchase, swatching on hand might not be enough.
