My Take on YSL Rouge Volupte Perle Lipstick No. 103 in Sparkling Pink:
First of all, most of you know how much I adore and love shimmery products! This lipstick falls into this category and is a pink rose coloured shade with frost finish. I would not say shimmer finish, because the frost is so finely milled into the colour, that it gives a high shine finish without looking as if it has any shimmer at all, yet looks smooth enough on the lips to clearly notice the frost effect. The lipstick comes in a thick gold metal casing, and the pearl finishes have a white band through the middle, with the YSL logo within gold circles all around. I also like how the tip of the case is slanted, along with the shape of the tip of the lipstick, which makes application all the more easier and interesting too.
The lipstick case comes with a gold cardboard box with a red YSL logo in the middle and black printing elsewhere. I find it really a luxurious packaging and feel proud to carry this lipstick around for touch-ups 😛 Coming to the texture, the colour is very soft and smooth, in fact, so soft that I fear that there may be a tendency to break and/or even melt in the hot summer weather, so I would strongly recommend keeping it in the fridge. You can see a bit of the breakage and smudging that occurred when I swatched it lightly on my hand for the photos, so a very gentle touch is required when applying this. I also wouldn’t recommend pushing up the bullet too much, to prevent breakage. The coverage is full, rich, pigmented colour, smooth and comfortable like anything and it has a beautiful shine. It glided quickly and very smoothly on my lips, though I hardly needed to press it on the lips at all.
This lasted on me, surprisingly through a light meal, but it did transfer to a glass, being very soft, of course, as I mentioned earlier. I would say that I got 3 and a half hours wear time, and it faded evenly and without any patches. Having extremely dry lips, I felt this lipstick helped to smooth out fine lines on the lips and left me with soothed lips.
Pros of YSL Rouge Volupte Perle Lipstick No. 103 in Sparkling Pink:
- A very pretty rose pink shade with pearl finish.

- Comes in an elegant and sleek packaging.
- Soft and smooth texture.

Cons of YSL Rouge Volupte Perle Lipstick No. 103 in Sparkling Pink:
- Very soft, so prone to breakage and melting.
