YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick (17) Rose in Tension : Review, Swatch, FOTD

 

For my birthday last week, I wanted to get something special for myself and I zeroed in on the YSL lipsticks. I had wanted one for a while now but for some reason or the other, I didn’t try these out. At the store, I had a difficult time picking just one shade because there are so many gorgeous shades to choose from! Since I like slightly glossy finishes, I went for the Rouge Volupte Shine range and picked a beautiful berry rose shade – Rose in Tension.

Price : JPY 3800 + tax (Rs 2250)

My take on the Product

 

The YSL Rouge Volupte packaging is just exquisite – from the metallic gold and intricate detailing to the hefty feel of it – everything about it spells luxury! The texture of the lipstick is silky smooth and super creamy. But it doesn’t break off, crumble or melt in the tube like a lot of creamy drugstore lipsticks. The Rouge Volupte Shine range lipsticks are sheer but buildable and on layering it, you can get near opaque coverage. The lipstick has a natural looking soft glossy finish. The formula feels quite hydrating and I love LOVE the faint mango scent! Despite being creamy and not heavy on color, the lipstick stays quite well on my lips. I get about 3.5-4 hours of wear with a bit of fading if I eat/drink in between. The color doesn’t bleed, doesn’t feather and doesn’t settle into lip lines.

There is something magical about the texture and feel of the lipstick on the lips – it doesn’t just sit in a thick layer on the lips but hugs the lips like second skin and really moisturizes and softens. The formula is very light weight and comfortable.  I feel like this is the best lipstick I have every tried (!!) and I love everything about it from the packaging to the formula and the color! I have seen people rave about YSL lipsticks but never really understood the hype around it till I tried one for myself!

#17 Rose in Tension is a beautiful berry rose color. Its the perfect all-occasion color for me – works for the day and the night, for casual as well as special occasion makeup, brightens up the face and looks very polished. I think it’ll work for most skin tones especially if you are medium toned, Highly recommended!!

 Rating : 5/5

    • September 24, 2014 / 5:20 am

      Hi, I think Bandra Shoppers Stop on Linking Road should have it. Or else you could visit Shoppers Stop in Inorbit Mall, Malad. They definitely would have it.
