I am pretty much exclusive to YSL lip products because of their quality and their packaging. Also, I am addicted to that strange perfume, which I can only describe as synthetic and strangely rotten in an attractive way. If that puts you off, worry not because this lipstick has a sweet and mild smell.
Besides this one, I also own the Kiss & Blush and Rouge Pur Couture. Out of the three, I have to say that this one, Rouge Volupté, is my favorite. I have it in #9 Nude in Private (the racy name is like 50% of why I bought it in the first place). It is a sheer color that is basically my natural lip color but more intensified. If you are going to be taking photos but want a "natural" look, this shade is going to be your best pal. Additionally, it moisturizes very well and stays put surprisingly long since it's a balm-like texture.
The packaging on this is luxurious without being trifling. I would definitely repurchase both this line and this product.
I have this in 24 Violet Insurgent from the Holiday 2014 collection. Feels like butter on my lips and leaves a nice fresh wet look and a bit of a stain when it dries out. It's exactly what I was looking for in a fun everyday lipstick, the pinkish berry colour is not as dramatic as the bullet makes it look. Most of my lipsticks are matte so it feels like it might slip right off if I touch my face but maybe that's just me haha. I do wish the bullet was pointy, I feel like I'll waste so much product going at it with a lip brush!
I was tempting to get this lipstick for almost a yr until recently that I finally got it. It does glide on like butter and very moisturising.. But ... But you definitely feel like having lip product on. And it's moisturising at first but it dries out your lips after 4 hours :( and i dont like that feeling at all. For a lipstick like that and costing like $35 is wayy too expensive. I can find better dupes with cheaper price and equal quality. However i do love the mango scent and the pigmentation. I got #16 which is an orangey coral that compliments warm skin tone a lot.
I have this in number 15 corail intuitive. This is the best lipstick I've ever owned! It's so pigmented, I only use 1 or 2 swipes to get full opacity. It smells great--like mango. It's a soft, warm toned pinky coral that looks natural & not too orange (unlike my clinique chubby stick #04). I've been wearing this every day since I got it. It is expensive, but it's worth the price because it's great quality and has beautiful packaging. Love it!
I just got this in 6 Pink in Devotion. Loving it. It feel so moisturzing and have a beautiful shine to it. This is going to be my favs together with Guerlain G Rouge range. I love Guerlain G but they are heavy, this is more practical to carry inside a small purse.
I LOVE this lipstick. The color is SO rich and the texture is phenomenal. Almost like a light oil. You barely notice it. It us not unpleasant at all. It's not waxy it is light and refreshing. It even tastes good (I know weird) and it has a nice smell. I'd buy all colors if it weren't for the price. For me it doesn't last a long time, but that's ok because reapplying it is a pleasure.
This is, by far, the best lip product. No no, I'm
-the wear: these could be advertised as balm stains, because even when the shine wears off, the color stays put like a lip stain!
-the feel: it's soft and smooth and comfy, perfect for travel
-the pigmentation: very smooth even and full coverage
-the packaging. Can we say high class?
-price. Okay it's pricey but worth it
-the color selection: it's good, but not as good as I would like it to be. Maybe better for my wallet?
People compare it to the revlon lip butters and maybelline color whispers, but to me the texture is incomparable.
It is like I said: a balmy, full coverage stain. Though revlon is comfy on the lips, it doesn't have that staining effect.
Overall you need to try at least one.
Over and out.
I actually own two of this gorgeous luxury lipsticks. The pigmentation and texture absolutely is to-die-for if not for the price I would own them all ^^. The packaging looks extremely valuable thus I would also be a nice present. The lipstick lasts about 3 hours and doesn't dry out the lips at all.
if you want additional information you can also check out my blog; I actually did a full review on this ^^
Completely in love with this product, and I'll be looking to pick up a few more shades in the next couple weeks!
I bought this in Pink in Paris, an "aggressively fresh" pink....very difficult to describe the color, as the pigmentation is unlike any lippie I've used before. It is intense, making the color last for up to 4 hours on me with eating and drinking, whereas most lipsticks will last 1 hour. It is a warm, medium to light pink, almost straying to a peach color. Very eye catching, but versatile enough to go with almost all MU looks. I get so many compliments on this color, and have had so many people asking me what I'm wearing!
It is fragranced, smelling like mangoes to me, but the scent and bit of a taste fades after 10 minutes max. The formula is extremely rich, glides on easily, and has the feel of butter, without melting all over the place. It leaves my lips soft, smooth, and shiny, but a matte look is easily achieved by layering color and blotting with a notecard. It is very easy to produce a light wash of color, or a darker, intense pink stain with this lipstick.
The packaging is no different than the YSL standard of high quality, luxe feel. The tube is heavy and a bright gold: easy to find in my purse!
The only thing I'd change, isn't really a fault of the lipstick, it's just a personal preference. I prefer the traditional lipstick shape, with the shaped and angled tip. It's easier and faster to get clean lines and a defined lip shape with the traditional tip, and this one is a round shape, flat across the top, set into the tube at an angle. I'm not a fan of using a lip brush every time I apply this lippie or go to touch it up. But that's just my preference
I'd love to try the other shades, and I will be repurchasing until these are discontinued! worth every penny!
I have #12, #14, #15, #16. #15 is way too pale, even for my younger sister who has pale skin (I am tanned) and not very pigmented pale pink lips. It still somehow managed to wash her lips out and make them look slightly white. On me this colour just comes up white because my natural lip colour is so much darker. #14 and #16 are beautiful, which reminds me, because I haven't used them in a while. #14 is a bit bright for me though, and my cap is slightly broken from dropping it once. #12 is also beautiful and stains the lip slightly. A gripe with this formula is that there is so much slip that it tends to move around the lips quite easily, so it's not a low maintenance lipstick.
