Review: YSL Rouge Volupte Shine


Today I'm going to be reviewing a much-loved product in the beauty community- The YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick.
Beautiful packaging!

I have wanted one for quite a long time, but I could not justify spending my money on the previous editions as I didn't really like the consistency. The formulation of the Shine is amazingly flattering and right up my street, and the colour choices appeal to me much more than the previous versions did, as I am not someone who goes for super light or super dark colours.

I chose shade 8 (a pinky rose), after being super torn between 8 and 15 (a light coral). 

Shade 8

The lipstick applies smoothly and gives a lovely amount of shine without being sticky or slippy.

There is something about YSL lipsticks (and YSL in general) that really appeals to makeup junkies. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I am pretty sure it's absolutely not eye-watering price tag- I came away from the counter with my sensible side screaming "Did you really just spend £24 on a lipstick?".

I was very conflicted over the purchase, but there is no denying that this product is really, really wonderful. I may not be splurging on myself anytime soon, but I will make it my duty to give as many YSL presents as possible.

You can purchase YSL lipsticks for £24 from any YSL stand or the online store.

Thanks for reading!
