YSL Volupte Shine Lipstick Fuchsia in Rage Review, Swatch

YSL – Rouge Volupte Shine – #19 Fuchsia in Rage

Hello Lovely Ladies!

I know I have been away for a long time. I have been busy with a work assignment which took a lot out of me. Now that it has been submitted, I can breathe a sigh of relief and am back. Back with another lippy…from my new found crush – Yves Saint Laurent – better known as YSL!

YSL Volupte Shine Lipstick Fuchsia in Rage Review, Swatch

I am surprised that with my love for lippies, I did not explore this brand for so long. Rouge Volupte and Volupte Shine pretty much have cult following of their own – and rightly so.

Since I love pigmented lipsticks instead of the balmy ones, I generally steer clear of variants which are named “Shine” (Coco Shine) or “Sheer” (Rouge d’Armani Sheer). So when I wanted to buy a Rouge Volupte (RV), I thought to pick RV instead of Rouge Volupte Shine (RVS) because I was under the notion that Volupte Shine are the less pigmented cousins of the Original Volupte formula. Boy, was I wrong! Read on to find out my experience with this formula.

The Product Details (from the website):

Introducing Rouge Volupté Shine. Give in to the temptation of dazzling color. Succumb to a unique sensorial experience with extreme comfort and luminous shine. Hyaluronic acid microspheres help seal in moisture for 8 hours of hydration. Anti-oxidants and emollients help condition and soften lips.

What it is:
An innovative and comforting lipstick enhanced with fruit extracts rich in vitamins and antioxidants that leave lips visibly softer and smoother with up to eight hours of hydration.

What it does:
Succumb to a unique sensorial experience with dazzling color, extreme comfort, and luminous shine. The luscious, hydrating texture glides on your lips leaving a lightweight aqua shine effect, while Back Injection Technology offers extreme comfort and pleasure upon application. This innovative lipstick is formulated to protect lips from free radicals and seal in moisture for up to eight hours of hydration.

What else you need to know:
Antioxidants in natural extracts of pomegranate and rosemary reduce the look of fine lines, while candellila resin forms a thin, protective layer to help lock in moisture and magnify color and shine. Mineral pigments provide bright, vibrant color and a melting formula (instead of a solid stick) enabling smoother glide-on application and an ultrafine lightweight film on lips. Hyaluronic acid spheres hydrate and soften lips to help seal in moisture for up to eight hours of hydration.

Price: $34 in US / In India @ INR 1900.



The packaging is beautiful and eye-catching –almost like owning a piece of jewellery. The golden casing has the YSL logo running in the middle within a coloured strip – colour reflects the colour of the product in the tube.

I think the packaging is extremely luxe while being practical. Easy to identify the shade from afar and has the weight and luxurious feel of an upmarket brand.

After you are finished staring at the case lovingly, you open it and twist the lipstick out, too ogle at it for some more time….It looks gorgeous! Almost good enough to eat!!

Comes packaged in a cardboard golden box, which makes photography a nightmare!

My experience with the Product:

Color: The colour is probably the most talked about colour of this line because it happened to feature in one of Lisa Elridge’s video. So needless to say, everyone who decided to try this range, went for this colour.

Why did I pick it? Coz I liked it! Actually, I had been looking for this kind of a pinkish violet for sometime – had zeroed in on a Rouge d’Armani in this shade – but it was always sold-out wherever I checked. So I settled for YSL instead.

Though named Fuschia in Rage – I do not think the colour to be pure Fuschis – its more voliet/plum than pink. It’s from the same famly of colours as MAC Up the Amp or Violetta but with distinctly more pink in it.

It’s got a glossy luminosity – I cannot call it sheen, it makes the lips look luminous, luscious with glossy colour.

Texture: The texture is very glossy – more glossy than creamy. It glides on like a dream with buttery softness. You do not need a lip balm below this. Its fairly moisturizing. And you definitely don’t need a gloss above it! However, there is no stickiness which is generally associated with glosses.

Pigmentation: Despite being named Volupte “Shine,” it still packs on the pigment. A single swipe deposits 60-70% color – you do need to build it with 2-3 swipes to get the colour in the tube. The colour though actually opaque on the lips, appears transluscent coz of the glossiness.

Unlike other “shine” variants of other brands, this is definitely “shine” but not “sheer”! However, for people who prefer things sheer, you could apply it lightly to get that effect. Either ways, it a win.

Lasting power: This is the beauty of the product – the product lasts about 3-4 hours – which I understand is not great in itself. That’s the same amount of wear a lip butter or balmy lipstick would give you. However, the difference is that it lives behind a pretty stain, which sticks on for hours – till you actually remove it with a remover. Since the lipstick is moisturizing, the stain itself is non-patchy and even.

YSL - Volupte Shine - 19 Fuschia in Rage

To sum this up for you:

1. A beautiful bright color
2. Amazing glossy shine – make lips look fuller, more attractive.
3. Great pigmentation – Option to get the colour in the tube or a sheer wash. However, pls note, the single swipe is not equivalent to sheer of colour – it still packs on pigment.
4. Easy to apply from the tube
5. The lipstick is moisturizing and applies like a dream – no tug or pull….far from it!
6. Does not settle into the fine lines of the lips
7. There was no feathering or bleeding
8. Luxurious beautiful packaging – you can sit and stare at it for hours.
9. Functional packaging – addresses customer concern by providing colour indication on the case.


1. The colour may not be everyone’s cup of tea. However, more natural pink, red, coral, brown shades are also available.
2. YSL products are not as easily available in India – except select ShopperStop counters
3. Transfers fairly easily

IMBB Rating:

Yes, a 5/5 product.

From my raves you would have guessed that its my current hot favorite! I like the product more than the colour and definitely intend to go back for another one. So, have you tried YSL products yet? Whats on your wishlist?

        1. *thankyou* Sumera for the encouragement! I hope I continue to deliver on this aspect by giving true colour of the lipsticks. And I always try to put my face in the pics coz sometimes lippies look so wonderful on the lips but it doesn’t add up when you see the full face – coz of skin tone, etc! So…. *thankyou* *thankyou*

    And *thankyou* Fiona for your sweet sweet words! Im glad that you are loving the lippies that I am sharing with you! *happydance* *happydance*

      1. I agree, the formula of Volupte Shine is better than the Original Volupte lippy….and they last despite the glossy texture…thats what is so amazing about it! I have 2 of the shine ones and i want atleast 1 more! *drool* *drool*

    1. Cho chweet! *thankyou* *thankyou* Mini – you have no idea how encouraging your words are – coz that IS my endeavour! I do want my reviews to be complete, informative and interesting so that at the end of it, a person is not undecided – rather she knows whether she want it or not! Thankyou!

      You do not wear statement colours? Prefer n*des? Why dont you try once – I feel a bright colour works on so many levels – it can brighten an outfit, a face or just your mood! Try a bright colour as a soft stain – maybe that will work for you till the time you are comfortable wearing it as a full-on lippy!

  8. *drool* *drool* this looks soo drool worthy..you have an amazing collection of lipsticks KK *jai ho* *jai ho* and you review them so well *jai ho* *jai ho*
