Notable lipsticks that have had an impact on my life? YSL Beauty’s Rouge Volupte.
Okay, so maybe saying “an impact on my life” is a little over the top, but those were probably the first luxury lipsticks I ever got and for a while I was completely obsessed with them (it also didn’t hurt that we didn’t have a YSL counter in my city at the time so it made them harder to find).
Anyways, it’s been a while since I’ve bought one of those since I have so many lipsticks in my collection, but they have always held a special place in my heart regardless if I have used them or not in the past few years.
New to the Rouge Volupte line is their Rock ‘N Shine collection (C$49 each), which is a line of 10 lipsticks that feature a glitter core that leaves your lips with pigmented colour and a sparkling finish. Perhaps the most innovative part of these lipsticks is the silver star in the middle of the bullet that makes these so luxurious when applying them. The star-shaped core is packed with glitter that makes your lips stand out. They also have a fresh mango scent which makes them a treat to apply.
YSL Beauty was so gracious to send over three lipsticks to swatch and try out, and these are just as luxurious as their original counterparts. The majority of the shades are very bold and although I don’t usually reach for reds, these do apply really beautifully and leave lips looking juicy and bold.
The packaging on these is the same as their Rouge Volupte line but in silver with a glittery cap. I will also note that although the star motif on the bullet is beautiful, once you start using these it does get all smudged.
So how do these compare to the original formula? They feel very similar in that the wear is lightweight and they glide on the lips. These just have glitter in them so it helps to elevate the colour. Like I said, all the shades do lean more towards a bolder colours, so if you wear reds, oranges or pinks then you would probably really enjoy these.
Do you have any YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks in your collection?
