YSL Rouge Volupté Shine - NEW SHADES

I’m not one for surprises but the thing I love about sheer lipsticks is that they’re not always what they seem and I quite like that. I’ve learnt not to be so decieved by the vividness of the bullet and to remember that sheer lipsticks don’t look THAT bright on lips. Having said that, YSL Rouge Volupté Shine* packs a punch - more luminous than what I expected anyway (and that’s a good thing, by the way!)

YSL Rouge Volupté Shine - NEW SHADES For Spring 2016

Twelve new shades have been added to the YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick range. Oil-In-Stick it may be called but don’t worry, it doesn’t feel oily or heavy on lips whatsoever. The lipsticks are enriched oils to help your lips stay conditioned and healthier. The glide-on, lightweight formula which smells like mango features 6 oils, pomegranate, macadamia butter and hyaluronic acid to lock-in moisture.

The ever-so-luxurious YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Shine are pigmented sheer lipsticks with a glossy finish. They are sheer but buildable and they're certainly not weak in colour. If you don’t normally to wear a vibrant, bold lip but have toyed with the idea of experimenting with brighter shades, there are a few in this new collection that you might like to try.


For me, my choice of lipstick depends on what I’m doing and where I’m going. I wish I could pull off a chic red lip day in, day out but that's just not the case at all, sadly! (sob sob). However, I have become so obsessed with lipsticks that I now feel bare without one. For parties and nights out where I’ve got a full face of make-up, I can get away with bold lipstick. But for most of the time, like during the day, I’ll go for something a little less maintenance, and I think that’s where YSL Rouge Volupté Shine comes in to play. 

The twelve shades are split in to three groups or personalities to help you identify and select the perfect shade for you; Day Bloomers, Night Birds, and Weekenders. I have some from each category so I’ll talk you through them.

No. 41 Corail A Porter

Day Bloomers


Effortlessly chic with a playful hint of cool. From workout to working lunch, the Day Bloomer revels in the fast-paced lifestyle of the week and loves on-the-go modern neutrals. 

The shades in Day Bloomers are beautifully subtle and are made to give you a natural look for the daytime, especially if you wear minimal make-up for work. The shades are No. 41 Corail A Porter (coral - pictured above), No. 42 Baume Midi Minuit (a clear, moisturising lip balm), No. 43 Rose Rive Gauche (soft rose-pink - pictured below) and No. 44 Nude Lavalliere (a soft nude pink).

No. 43 Rose Rive Gauche

Night Birds 


The next colour group are the Night Birds: A vivacious extrovert who comes alive after dusk, this ready-to-dance party girl combines red carpet glamour with a fearless rock and roll vibe.

No. 45 Rouge Tuxedo

The shades in Night Birds have quite a POP. When I first opened shade No. 45 Rouge Tuxedo (pictured above) - it looked bright but I assumed it would be like a tinted red balm, similar to Benefit’s BeneBalm which I love (and is almost coming to an end!). I thought to myself ‘oh, this is going to be my perfect go-to red for the daytime’ but it's actually nothing like BeneBalm. Rouge Tuxedo is quite an intense red and it would be better suited for parties and nights out when I have all of my make-up on. 

The other shades in this category are No. 46 Orange Perfecto (an orange-red), No. 47 Beige Blouse (a rose beige) and No. 48 Smoking Plum (plummy purple with shimmer).

No. 50 Fuchsia Stiletto

Weekenders


Primed for off-duty moments, this fun-seeker flits from gallery to cycle ride and weekend brunch with friends. It’s bright, poppy shades highlights her natural playfulness.

The shade in this group of pink, flirty and fun. It’s the middle ground if the Day Bloomers are  too subtle for you and Night Birds are too bright. The Weekenders are No. 49 Rose Saint Germaine (raspberry pink), No. 50 Fuchsia Stiletto (a cool-toned fuchsia pink - as pictured above), No. 51 Rose Saharienne (pink), and No. 52 Trapeze Pink (cool-toned pink)

  5. These look gorgeous! I'm not normally a fan of sheer lipsticks and stay loyal to my matte shades but they're not always practical and I'm on the hunt for something low maintenance like this. I love the look of the coral and rose pink shades. Lovely photos! x

    Always, Alice

  14. Actually these have much more colour pay off than I thought they would but for me personally I prefer an opaque colour you can really see. The packaging as always is gorgeous on these though x
