If you are a fan of Yves Saint Laurent makeup or a lipstick lover, here’s a great news for you! Yves Saint Laurent has recently launched a new lipstick line – Rouge Volupté Shine- that gives a unique sensuous experience with extreme comfort and luminous shine.
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine – S$45
Offering 19 ultra sensual colors, Rouge Volupté Shine is the combination of a creamy texture and vibrant colors that makes lip color a delicious treat. It help seal in moisture for 8 hours of hydration, thanks to the hyaluronic acid microspheres. In addition, anti-oxidants (promegrante and rice extracts) and emollients help combat free radicals and condition and soften lips.
So what makes the Rouge Volupté Shine formula so unique?
Lipsticks are primarily composed of soft waxes and hard waxes to create the firmness of the stick, oils for shine and pigments for color. To create Rouge Volupté Shine, YSL’s laboratories played with the ratio of the various waxes and introduced a unique complex of smoothing ingredients. Rouge Volupté Shine therefore offers a unique consistency that instantly melts on contact with lips, imparting an ultra shiny protective film that’s as clear as water.
Rouge Volupté Shine is endowed with “back injection” technology manufacturing process.
Unlike classic lipsticks in which the sticks are fixed in the tubes when cold, this process entails pouring the liquid base into the tubes while it’s still hot, literally injecting it from the bottom up. It then solidifies as it cools off. This unique process allows the creamy texture of the new formula, rich in soft waves, to be shaped as a stick, for a made to measure lipstick that glides on effortlessly and bathes the lips in color and shine.
I’m pleased to learn that there are two times more soft waxes in the Rouge Volupté Shine formula by Yves Saint Laurent Beaute than in a classical lipstick.
A while back, I was super delighted to receive a Rouge Volupté Shine gift box that contains 5 chic dazzling shades including 2 Yves Saint Laurent signature shades, vibrant red and fuchsia. Many thanks to Yves Saint Laurent Singapore!
The case is stamped with the YSL Cassandre logo and wrapped in a sash that matches the color of the lipstick inside.
These are the 5 chic sensuous shades in the gift box – No.6, No.12, No.13, No.19 and No.3.
Fuchsia (No.6) and seductive red (No.12) are the two must-have lip colors from Yves Saint Laurent.
Caressing the lips as it glides on, Rouge Volupté Shine instantly melts on lips, leaving a veil of color brimming with wonderfully wet-looking shine.
This is my favorite color (No.13) of all! This versatile color is suitable for day and night use.
If you dare to wear purple, you probably will like these 2 shades (No.19 and No.3).
Though they seem very dark but upon application, the colors appear pretty light on my lip, thanks to the sheer transparency texture that gives a pigmented, ultra shiny protective film that’s as clear as water.
Rouge Volupté Shine provides a perfect consistency between a light gloss and an opaque lipstick which I feel is pretty similar to Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain but with a more buttery creamy texture and is less sheer transparency than the latter. My lip appears silky smooth, plump and feels super hydrated.
Rouge Volupté Shine, retailing at S$45, is now available at all Yves Saint Laurent stores.
