YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipsticks* (£26) – available on counters and online
When it comes to beautiful makeup packaging, you cannot get more splendid and instagram-worthy than the YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick range. They are just gorgeous in all their golden glory! But as well as looking darn pretty, these lipsticks are actually pretty awesome products too, whether you choose to opt for the more opaque, satin finish of the original Rouge Voluptes, or something lighter and more luminous which the Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks deliver. Or to give them their full name, Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick lipsticks! (and breathe…)
Last month YSL launched 12 new hedonistic shades to join the already brimming collection of 18 original shades that make up the Rouge Volupte Shine range. These lipsticks are lovely and literally melt onto your lips. The texture is soft, smoothing and luxurious feeling. The 12 new shades are packed full of six oils, pomegranate, macadamia butter, hyaluronic acid, pigments and pearls to create a quenching, high-shine formula that glides onto the lips and gives a buildable, vibrant shot of colour. The oils also care for the lips so these lipsticks feel incredibly comfortable to wear so won’t dry or sit in any fine lines. They are probably best described as a hybrid between a lipstick and a balm but with a good level of colour pay off and a gorgeous, glossy finish. Oh and did I mention the mouthwatering smell these lipsticks have?! A fruity mango scent which matches the juicy wash of colour they deliver onto the lips. Gorgeous!
With 12 new shades and 18 original shades in the Rouge Volupte Shine line up, there is bound to be a lipstick (or two) that appeals to you! Which one takes your fancy?
