These ysl rouge volupte's are for those that like lots of pigmentation.not sheer in any way,but can be dabbed on for a more subtle look.I love the packaging,it is very sturdy and has some weight and I like that. All things said,something about this lipstick formula does not agree with me. I prefer a thicker formula with less slip because I feel that this lipstick could be easily messy because it slides so easily on the lips.this is good for initial application,but not for staying power.My main problem with these is the formula-for me,these lipsticks Bring out flakiness majorly,even if my lips aren't dry,I'm not sure why but it literally I feel causes my lips to become all peely...it must be something in all of their lipsticks because the Shine ones do this on me also.I feel that this is a good quality lipstick but it just didn't agree with me.one lippie for packaging and one lippie for high pigmentaion.this is hard for me to say because I am a lover of HE mu,but truly my Sally Hansen Carmindy l/s in baby pink from the drugstore I prefer over this.

LOVE the color... I couldn't find anything else like it in Sephora. It's a baby pink on the cool side that somehow straddles porno and classy - think 5.5" Loubs.

The only downside is the consistency. Despite it's ultra-creaminess, Volupte starts drying out my lips after 1/2 an hour. Therefore, a moisturizing gloss is a must need over this.

Update: I decided to see what would happen if I used this like a Nars Multiple - it makes the prettiest pink blush and blends so nicely into my skin! It also lasts longer than my Nars Multiple!

I do enjoy the color & the feel of this lippie...however it's not my fave..I still prefer Mac.
I don't believe the pictures that are up do this lipstick any justice.
The first two look just so awful and I believe they dipped their lips in pepto-bismol before the photo was taken.
it's a pretty pale pink, but not "chalk pink" as most the photos would suggest.
Now if you are of a darker skin color this is just going to look awful.. for that matter any light pink looks awful on dark skin...Think the old woman on Something about Mary.
If you are of a more fair complection, it's worth a go.

I was disappointed in this lipstick. The pigmentation and lasting power couldn't beat my Revlon lipsticks. In fact, I had to reapply every 30 minutes. So glad I didn't pay full price for this. Will not purchase any more YSL lippies.

Oooh, gorgeous pepto-bismol pink. It is a creamy consistency, not a dry, matte lip and has a lovely scent. You can't beat the gorgeous gold tube either!

I am curious to see how this stands up against Pixel Pink though...

I keep seeing this particular shade being featured in magazines. And since I've fallen in love with YSL lipsticks since I tried Rouge Pur...I purchased this without even trying it.
I was not diappointed. Though at first try I thought it was too pale on me...that's because I put on too much. I realized this is highly pigmented so I put it on using a lip brush...it was a lovely shade of pale pink. I fell in love all over again with YSL...now I have to try other shades of Rouge Volupte! It keeps my lips hydrated (I have very dry lips, I usually put lip balm before applying lipstick). It smells yummy and the packaging is just gorgeous. I used to think it's crazy how expensive these lippies are...but now I understand...this is high quality lipstick. It's worth what I paid for.

I, too, picked this up at a private L'Oreal sale. I can't BELIEVE the bargain I got. On to the product.

Feeling on lips: glides like a dream, not drying, though I'd never wear lipstick without lip balm.

Pigmentation: unbelievable. A tiny bit goes a long way unless you seriously want your lips to look exactly like the color in the tube.

Smell/taste: This is what usually keeps me away from lipsticks - that obvious, pungent chemical byproduct smell and taste. NONE at all with this, there's almost a slightly sweet fruity scent. It's quite faint, and still smells a little artificial but hey, it IS lipstick.

DEFINITELY suited more for cooler skin tones. I'm Asian with yellow undertones, around MAC NC30, 35. In all honesty, this looked queer on me. However, it was so steeply discounted that I couldn't resist trying it out especially since I want a nude lipstick. I find that dabbing a tiny bit of this onto my lips and pressing my lips together to smear it (it's so creamy that it actually blends really well) and top it off with colored gloss it's perfect. I wouldn't repurchase at the insane normal price seeing as I'm not yet a billionaire, but at the bargain price FOR SURE I will. Though I'd like to try the other shades...

I picked these up at a private YSL sale. The colour was gorgeous, exactly what i wanted for a nude lipstick that didn't make me look crazy or sick like Barry M 101 did. The texture was creamy, moisturising and colour pay-off was awesome. I love the way it felt on my lips. No funky taste or smell. I have chronic chapped lips & dark lips but this product not only provided an asthetic purpose but also healed my lips. The packaging is blink pretty and it comes with a small mirror on the top of the cap. The diameter of the lipstick was wider as compared to the average lippie, making application easy and fast.The only set back is that the stick may break easily due to its creamy texture.I have abandoned my MAC, Paul & Joe, Girogio Armani lippies since then.

This is a great colour but I don't really want a lipstick that slides off right after I've applied it. It doesn't really stay put for longer than 5 minutes which is a real shame as the smell, colour and the soft texture are nice. I like a lipstick to stay put and this just doesn't do it. I prefer the Mac lipsticks so much more.
