YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in No 15 | Review & Swatches

Wednesday, 9 October 2013

Aloha Lovelies! Although it’s now October and long gone are the days of Summer and sunshine, I’m not ready to let go of some of the Summer trends just yet. I love coral lipsticks and I don’t think you should just keep them for Summer, if you love something, why not use it all year I say! Anyway, I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a YSL lipstick for ages and now I finally have.

I originally wanted shade 1 which is a gorgeous nude pink but it was sold out in my local counter and I couldn’t leave without getting something, so I picked up shade 15 which is this gorgeous coral shade. I love the packaging of these YSL lipsticks, I think they’re so pretty and girly and look great in my lipstick holder!

This lipstick looks a lot darker in the packaging than it does on your lips which is something I like about these lipsticks as sometimes I don’t want such a solid colour on my lips, so this lipstick is great for the days when I want a more sheer finish. As you can see from the swatch, this is quite a sheer lipstick with a slightly glossy finish which means I never have to apply gloss with this lipstick.  I also love this lipstick as it feels super moisturising and glides on like a dream, it never pulls on my lips and it really does feel more like you are applying a lip balm other than a lipstick.

Overall, I love these lipsticks and everything about them. I will definitely be checking back with my local YSL counter to see when they will be getting shade 1 in stock. 


  1. I agree with you, coral can definitely we worn well into autumn and even winter, but I'm still on the hunt for a coral shade that has a little bit more zing in it with a bit more orange. If you have any recommendations, please let me know :o). Xx

  2. I've never brought a YSL lipstick but this one looks so nice! I'm glad you like it a lot it has made me think about taking the plunge and investing in one of these beauties! x

  3. I've only owned a light pink version of this lipstick but loved the consistency so much! This is such a pretty colour xx

  4. The gold shimmer running through is beautiful!

  5. I've decided a YSL lipstick is going to be my duty free puchase at the airport on Tuesday - let's see what colour I pick up.
