The Rouge Volupté range of YSL lipsticks has recently expanded to include their new ‘Shine’ formula. When I first caught wind of this new release, I ran to their website, and ordered #8 (Pink in Confidence) sight unseen. I knew it would be a hit for me, so no surprise that it is!
The Rouge Volupté line now imparts luminous shine to their richly pigmented and extremely comfortable line of best-selling lipsticks. “Enhanced with fruit extracts rich in vitamins and antioxidants, it leave lips visibly softer and smoother with up to eight hours of hydration”. It also contains Hyaluronic spheres which soften lips and helps to seal in moisture.
The Rouge Volupté Shine lipstick glides on like a melting stick of butter. Perhaps even a bit more smoothly than the original and Sheer Candy versions. The comfort level is high and the formula is utterly weightless. The shine provided is just the right amount. The scent is fruity, referred to as “Mango” and I would agree. For someone sensitive to fragrance, it is a scent that I have come to love. It is truly sensory experience to apply and of my highest recommendations.
The Shine Rouge Volupté lipstick provides more pigment than the Sheer Candy and less than the original. I expect more pigmentation with other shades that are brighter and deeper than this natural pink. The color does not last as long as the original, although I am provided with hours of moisture. My lips feel incredibly nourished, a perfect lipstick for those who complain about dryness. One swipe provides sheer color and subtle shine. When layered, the color deepens and the shine increases to perfection.

Pink in Confidence #8 is dusty pale pink with a small amount of shimmer.
YSL Rouge Volupté Shine are $34 and come in a range of 16 gorgeous shades. The only trouble is choosing just one! I already have my eyes on a few more shades.
