Hello World! It’s officially Fall! time to get cozy because cold weather is coming 🙂 but no matter what the weather is going to be, let’s not all forget to put on some gorgeous lipsticks. Cold times call for nicely flushed lips, and who says you can’t rock a bold lip color on the fall? after all, we never really want this summer to be over, do we? course not!
Remember that “Sample of the Week” review that I did a couple of weeks ago? That said review was about a sample of YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipsticks and you can read it HERE. In that said review, I rave about those lipsticks and mentioned that I was planning to purchase them in larger sizes with a few colors I was eyeing in mind.
Well, here’s part 2 of that said review, or should I say, a continuation of my love for YSL Lipsticks.
These YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-In-Sticks are definitely a must-have. They’re light to medium coverage lipsticks wherein you may only need one (doubt it, LOL) and I’m pretty sure you’ll love it. These lipsticks are one of the most beautiful lipsticks I’ve ever tried, hands down. I love the packaging, love the hydrating formulation, the delicious scent, and most of all, I am in love with their pigmentation. There’s an excitement every time you apply one of these on your lips. I don’t know what it is, but they just make your lips look luscious and gorgeous.
Another best part of these lipsticks are the fact that there’s enough or even a lot of product in their tubes, so I always feel like I got my money’s worth. The shades that I purchased are extremely different from each other and I just love them all. I do think that most of the shades in this line are almost all on the bright side, like lots of neons, corals, pinks and nudes. They’re definitely more of a summertime lipstick, but don’t we all yearn for some color in the gloomy days? I do.
- N 43 Rose Rive Gauche – Smoky Rose. For my NC30 skin, this shade appears more like a nude coral-peach on me.
- N 45 Rouge Tuxedo – Cherry Red. Reviewed HERE
- N 46 Orange Perfecto – Poppy Coral. Such a perfect, gorgeous and fresh orange-coral shade that is very versatile specially for medium skin tones because it’s not too neon-like.
- N 48 Smoking Plum – Juicy Plum. My most favorite shade of all the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-In-Sticks because this shade complements my skin tone very well and my fairly pigmented lips. It has mauve hues that works really well on my lips, making it a “my lips but better” kinda vibe. Ya know the feeling…
Some people compared these lipsticks to Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo (reviewed HERE) in terms of coverage and formulation. Personally, I think these are way better in the sense that these lipsticks have a staining power compared to Chanel Stylo which almost doesn’t leave a trace, at least not on me. Though they both have extremely hydrating formulas, they differ quite slightly when it comes to coverage. These lipsticks may have slightly less coverage than Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo but you almost can’t tell the difference. The nice thing about the Rouge Coco Stylos are the fact that they don’t have any scent, which may be a better option for those who dislikes scents or tastes in their lipsticks.
If you’re looking for these lipsticks in the store, be aware that they’re kinda tricky to find. Of course they’re all in the YSL beauty aisle, LOL obviously, but sometimes they get mixed up with the YSL Rouge Volupte Shines and the Rouge Voluptes. There’s a difference between the two, or three, yeah, read it HERE. Sephora usually mixes them together with the Volupte Shines, while YSL’s website really made a distinction of each line.
Anyways, hope you like this review, Happy Autumn! It’s raking time!
