YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipsticks (Review + Swatches)

In my makeup collection the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks are definitely my most reached for lip product. Not only do they have extremely luxurious packaging, but the formula is fantastic. These lipsticks feel very smooth and moisturizing on your lips, very similar to the feeling of a lip balm without the thickness that you tend to get from a normal lip balm.

The lipsticks are slightly sheer compared to a normal lipstick but they do show up very well on the lips, even the more nude colors. As you can probably tell by the name these lipsticks leave a really pretty shine to your lips. I personally do not like wearing lip gloss so these provide me enough shine to skip the lip gloss entirely. I find that the darker colors do stain your lips with a color a few shades lighter than the actual lipstick, but unfortunately I find this does not happen with the two lighter colors that I have.

The lipsticks can be found in stores or online. If you live in the US you can find them in Sephora for $36.00. If you live in the UK you can find them in Debenhams and House of Fraser for £26.00 each. Even though these lipsticks are more expensive than a drugstore lipstick, I feel that these are completely worth the money. I have never felt another lipstick similar to these. I own a few Revlon Lip Butters and although they are also moisturizing on the lips they do not feel as smooth or creamy as the YSL lipsticks and the Revlon Lip Butters feel much more thick on the lips.
