I love this product so so so much. First of all, it comes in gorgeous packaging. Second of all, this lipstick is super moisturizing. For the days I lose my chapstick, I subsitute this lipstick as a temporary chapstick and it works so well! I own #17 which is Rose in Tension and it is such a beautiful color. Despite the price, ($35! whew!) I will definitely purchase again in the furture. One of the best buys I have made this year. It makes a great acessory and a staple in your makeup bag.
I am not a lip color fan, but I LOVE these so much! I own 3, and wear them every day. The formula is moisturizing but not tacky, and looks like a lipstick rather than a tinted balm. I honestly put these on as lip balm during the day (and for color) because I love the feel! The scent, to me, is fine; it's fake fruity but I actually like that. It does taste a bit fruity as well, but only if I'm checking/licking!
The pigmentation is sheer to medium, so it's a bit hard to find shades that look like anything on my pigmented lips. The finish is shiny but not glossy/glassy, and while one of the shades I have has iridescent shimmer, it's invisible on my lips.
Each color stains my lips, so hours later (after coffee and talking) I still have a nice color going on!
I have #2 Pourpre Intouchable, which is not purple on me - more of a plum/red/berry. It doesn't pull fuschia and might be my favorite lip color ever. I also have #7, rose infinite, which ends up being MLBB - a taupe rose/pink that is more brown than pink. My least favorite (but still loved) shade on me is #17, Rose in Tension, as it pulls very hot pink on me, but is a great spring shade.
I seriously want to toss all of my other lipsticks and just use these!
Oh my god I love this lipstick so much! It's my go to lipstick and I use it all the time. I have the #8 which is call Pink in Confidence. On my lips, the colour comes out as a pink berry a little darker than my natural lips (which are more red than pink). I know that on some other girl it comes out more of a light pink (I guess their natural lips have more pink tone than mine).
The colour is not too much pigmented, but not translucent neither. It's just that the colour is so natural, it brings out more your natural tone. It's also shiny but not too much. The staying power is good, and it moisturizes my dry winter lips.
The packaging is absolutely beautiful. I just love putting this lipstick on! It feels luxurious! And there's a good smell not too pronounced. The swatches in this collection look all beautiful. I can't wait to buy one (or more) of their lighter pink. It is expensive for a lipstick, but for someone like me who does not buy or uses a lot of makeup, I like to invest in quality products. Even if not, it worths it totally! I used for a couple of years now the regular Volupte, and it is also a VERY good lipstick. It is also very moisturizing and well pigmented, just a little more matte.
It is really the perfect lipstick for my taste I have ever tried. I don't even want to continue looking for a better one, this one and the regular Volupte are so great!
I bought one of these at the suggestion of another MUAer. I spent a very long time in Sephora swatching and trying on different colors until I spotted #2 Pourpre Intouchable, which is described as a "deep airy purple." I don't get purple when I wear this, I get the most perfect deep red/berry lip shade that I've ever owned. It looks soft but noticeable and, seriously, the color is just perfect. The packaging of these actually puts me off a bit as I do find it slightly tacky. It's got a nice weight to it and is extremely well made, I just don't like all the gold. The smell is gorgeous, like mango or something equally delicious. Where these really shine (heh) is the formula. These feel like nothing else I've ever worn. I suffer from chronically dry lips and these just glide on and don't make it worse. They are completely weightless but very pigmented and the wear time is actually quite good. I can go a solid 3-4 hours with some light eating/drinking and still have this hanging on. I find that when it does wear off, it does so quite evenly. I'd have to say that this is easily one of my top 3 lip product formulas I've ever tried and I can't wait to get some other shades - I've got my eye on Rose in Tension and Fuchsia in Rage.
Add to me to list of people who think this just isn't worth the high price tag and designer pedigree. I bought this in Fuchsia in Excess. Gorgeous color and glam packaging for sure, and hey, I don't even mind the smell. But the staying power is next to nil and it wears off in a very uneven and unflattering way.
The packaging alone should have its own reviews. A seriously gorgeous, luxurious tube with all the special details that make it feel high end. Don't get me wrong, I love my minimalist Chanel and Burberry packaging but sometimes it's nice to have that obvious, ornate beauty in a cosmetic product.
I bought this in 13 Pink in Paris and quickly fell in love with both the color and the formula. It's a medium rosy pink, slightly brightened like strawberry pink rose petals. It has a subtle shimmer that simply looks shiny not shimmery. I have fairly pigmented lips and this covers it entirely but doesn't look like a fully opaque lipstick. It feels very silky and glides on so comfortably. It feels moisturizing like it's really nourishing my lips not just coating them in a cushy formula. But for the record I do tend prefer lipsticks that feel like a balm over the drier, more long wearing types. I'd rather reapply a couple extra times than have my lips feel dry.
This has a lovely, lingering fruity fragrance too.
I spotted a few other colors that I'm going to have to add to my ongoing makeup wish list.
I was in Sephora at the Yves Saint Laurent section, looking at all the Rouge Voulptes there. I ignored the Rouge Volupte Shines because... well, I don't know why.
Anyways, the woman who worked at Sephora asked if I needed help. I told her that I wanted to purchase a YSL Rouge Voulpte, but I didn't know what colour I wanted. I told her I wanted a rather natural-looking colour as opposed to a bright colour. The woman grabbed a Rouge Volupte (I don't remember the number or name of the shade), and she also grabbed a Rouge Volupte Shine in #9- Nude in Private.
When the employee applied the Rouge Voulpte, I hated how bright it looked, despite the shade being a rather "neutral" shade. I quickly took it off and the woman applied the Rouge Voulpte Shine. I loved it the minute I saw my reflection in the nearby mirror! It was neutral, but the colour was still noticeable on my lips (my lips are a natural light pink if you're wondering). The scent was good, and it didn't feel sticky. I bought it that day and wore the lipstick the rest of the day. Even as I'm typing I'm wearing it! I'm not even kidding- I love it that much.
Though the price is quite high, I do recommend it if you want a hydrating lipstick. The colour #9- Nude in Private is a beautiful neutral, but I'm sure all the colours are beautiful! For me, it's a definite must-have! :)
this lipstick is worth the price. I spend numerous hours in Sephora looking for perfect pink that was MLBB color. I have pigmented lips that are kind of pink already so lot of lighter color lipsticks do not even show up on me or look more pink that they really are. So its really a struggle. I finally stumbled on the color which I unfortunately can't remember a name of, only that it had "pink" in the name..Sorry, the names are only printed on the packaging which i threw away...my lipstick itself has #8 on it if that any help.
Its medium brownish pink with rose tones, like the natural color in your lips. and it looks incredibly natural on. On me it basically looks almost like my own lips, just better lol
Formula is fantastic..I usually prefer opaque full coverage but I love this-its shiny, incredibly moisturizing and definately not opaque but I still love it. It goes on smooth as silk, needs no gloss or balm under it. But yet, its long wearing. I wore it all morning, had lunch and still had some color on my lips. I am very impressed.
And of course, packaging is very luxirious and heavy. all in all, I can justify the price because of formula and how well it performs
AMAZING! At first when I was paying for it at the till I though I wouldn't like it because it looked really weird but OMG I'm inlove with it! Defiantly RECOMMEND IT!
Just like all other high end lipsticks, I don't like these at all! I have no idea why lipsticks like YSL, Chanel, Guerlain, Dior, all dry my lips out, while much cheaper stuff works so much better!
Initially I bought #12 Corail Incandescent, and I purged it because on me it looked almost bright red, way too bright for me.
Then I bought #15, the peachy one. Better for me color-wise, although it barely shows up, but it still looks decent for about half an hour. It's glossy and upon application feels balmy and moisturizing.
However after 30 minutes or so, it just disappears from my lips (without me eating or drinking), and my lips look parched. It's just useless.
I have at the moment 4 YSL lipsticks, and I dislike all of them :s
