I am back with a review of another Yves Saint Laurent Lipstick today. Now, this particular lipstick was what inspired me to go empty my pockets on YSL lipsticks. Like I said before, I was watching a YouTube beauty guru review her YSL lipstick collection and when she put on the “Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté – 13 Peach Passion” to review, my eyes went POP! The color looked so pretty and stunning on her – I had to own it! I went online to read more about the Rouge Volupté online; everyone had good things to say. The next day, I went to the YSL counter and got this one without even trying it on my lips! The rest of my experience with this one got a little interesting. Read on!
1900 INR for 4 gm.
One of these Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15 is sure to be your new signature color: they’re sensual, radiant, and strong. With shades that drench the lips with densely pigmented color and a unique color-shine complex, lips are visibly smoothed, plumped, and radiant with luminous satin color.
I am a huge fan of YSL packaging! If I could, I would get them all and decorate my dressing table with them. They look so classy! The Rouge Volupté comes in a gold canister with the color of the lipstick as a band around it, encased in the gold YSL logo. How can I not fall for that?!
Texture: These lipsticks are the creamiest lipsticks I have ever tried. They have such a soft, butter-like creamy finish. This is why the lipstick spreads so easily on your skin. It just slides over your lips and gives you long-lasting moisture.
Color: The color is a very pretty peach-ish pink. These colors are so highly pigmented, that there is no scope for more than one swipe. Really, it gives you the maximum color in one layer. If you do multiple swipes, its just going to look pasty. These are very very opaque.
My Experience with YSL Rouge Volupté Peach Passion 13 Lipstick:
The first thing I noticed, these lipsticks smell somewhat like mangoes! Really. Don’t worry; the smell is not prominent. But if you actually smell the product – mangoes 😛 I somehow think this is a little too much as an everyday lipstick, but if you are used to wearing statement colors, go for it!
This comes on your lips like a pastel baby-doll pink. That is the best way I can describe the color on my lips. What I love about this is that it looks absolutely amazing on camera. Your photos and videos will look amazing even with terrible lighting! When you have this on, it will last you for about 6 hours. It goes with more western wear as compared to Indian wear, but it is great for both!
There are a lot of things that YSL got right with these lipsticks! It has SPF 15, it is very moisturizing and feels like butter on your lips. But like other YSL lipsticks, this sinks into the lines of even mildly dry lips. Do remember to exfoliate and moisturize your lips before using this.
I know I said that the lipstick is moisturizing, what I meant what that it will keep your lips moisturized. It will NOT heal any dry or chapped lips. This lipstick is not easy to take off, since it is so pigmented, makeup remover is a must.
Now, coming to the not so good part. I mentioned that I got this without trying it on my lips, well that was a mistake. The YouTube guru who had this on has gorgeous tanned, glowing, medium toned skin. I have pale fair-toned skin, no tan at all. This lipstick does not go too well with my skin color. I still love it when I look at my photos, but when I look in the mirror; I wish I got a darker peach. This is for tanned/medium-toned skin. I doubt that it would look good with dark skin too.
I don’t hate the lipstick; I just don’t like it very much. It is an amazing shade, very pretty and doll-like, but it just isn’t for me.
Pros of YSL Rouge Volupté Peach Passion 13 Lipstick:
- Heart-melting packaging, beautiful and travel friendly.
- Butter-like, creamy texture – spreads so easily.
- Looks amazing on camera.
- Goes with both western and Indian wear.
- Statement color for everyday lipstick.
- Contains SPF 15.
- Highly pigmented and opaque – you only need one layer of it.
- Does not leave lips dry on removal.
- Looks stunning on tanned skin.
Cons of YSL Rouge Volupté Peach Passion 13 Lipstick:
- Since it lasts for up to 6 hours, it might not be a great option for an everyday shade.
- Very fair or darker skin tones can find better colors in the Rouge Volupté range.
- Looks pasty if you use more than one swipe.
I rate the lipstick a 3.8/5. I would recommend it to a friend based on their skin tone.
