I have been a huge fan of YSL’s Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks in the sheer formula. Recently, YSL has come out with a new version of Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks and I was kind of confused at first wondering about the difference between “Rouge Volupte Shine” and “Rouge Volupte Shine Oil Stick!” Is there really any difference in the formula or have they just added new shades to the range? After doing my research, I found out that YSL Rouge volupte shine oil in stick is just a new name for rouge volupte shine, but still the colours they have added to the range are so beautiful that I had to pick up a few shades. The shade that I will be reviewing today is #44 Nude Lavalliere.
An oil-in-a-stick, medium-coverage lipstick with an innovative texture that provides high-performance color and irreverent shine while it conditions the lips. Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick is oil-infused to impart seductive color and high shine while hydrating your lips. Formulated with 65 percent oils, the deeply hydrating texture instantly melts into lips, creating a pop of color, instant moisturization, and all-day comfort. After four weeks, lips appear healthy and more nourished. This lip formula delivers six oils for six benefits: hydration, high shine, comfort, ultra-melting, luminosity, and smoothness. Infused with Yves Saint Laurent’s additive, signature mango scent, these lipsticks are good enough to eat. Now in 30 shades that in a range of modern neutrals, playful pinks, and intense berries, they’re perfect for every lip mood.
My Experience with YSL 44 Nude Lavalliere Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick:
The packaging is the same as that of “Rouge Volupte Shine.” This lipstick comes housed in a beautiful golden tube with YSL logo band wrapped on the centre of the tube with a colour coordinating strip underneath. Packaging has a weight to it which makes it look and feel very luxe. The shade number is mentioned at the bottom of the tube.
Not only the packaging is beautiful, the formulation is equally stunning. Shade #44 is a pinky brown n*de color which would look flattering on fair to medium skin tones. The texture of the Rouge volupte shine oil-in-stick is smooth and has a slip to it.
It glides on effortlessly, delivering a sheer-to-medium coverage on the lips. It’s quite buildable in one swipe and will give a slight wash of colour. Around 3 to 4 swipes will deliver medium coverage.
On me, this does not feather, but people who have mature lips, might notice some feathering. This YSL lipstick has a fruity scent, which can bother some people, but I love the scent of YSL lipsticks. Because of the shine, it helps in mimicking plump and fuller lips. It does not settle into fine lines of my lips, which is a major plus for me. It does transfer if you eat or drink.
YSL rouge volupte shine oil-in-stick does fade evenly, leaving behind a beautiful stain. It feels very comfortable and lightweight on the lips. Even after it has completely worn off, the lips feel hydrated. The only drawback is the bullet shape, the lack of which makes it hard to apply the lipstick precisely on to the lips. This product has the same staying power as the rouge volupte shine formula, I get 4-5 hours of wear time.
