These lipsticks are packaged in an attractive golden cardboard box with the red and black YSL logo printed in the middle.  The lipstick tube is a beautiful golden colour with the exact shade in plastic in the middle of the tube and golden rings with the YSL logo in gold going all round. On top of each tube is a small round mirror.



It’s a bright, “fashion-forward” fuchsia pink with a creamy finish.



The texture of this lipstick is rich, smooth and creamy.

Coverage and Pigmentation:

This gives completely full coverage with just a single swipe and has awesome pigmentation, so one has to be careful not to keep loading the colour onto the lips.

Staying Power:

In spite of being so smooth and creamy, it has quite a long staying power and doesn’t budge or fade for quite a few hours, surviving meals and drinks too!


It has a slight fragrance on the fruity side, maybe a bit mango-ish kind of smell.

My Experience with Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick No. 10 – Provocative Pink:

First of all, hi everyone, I am over the moon to be back with a review after quite a while, hope all of you are doing great!  I bought this lipstick during the festive season in December last year when I was looking for a real bright fuchsia pink colour and had been eyeing this particular colour from YSL and even checked it out quite a few times before taking the plunge. I thought to myself that if I was going to buy a YSL lipstick, then the colour should be really unique and something that was not easily available or “dupe-able” in other brands.

For someone who loves “brights,” even I was a bit taken aback with the absolute brightness of this colour, but not in an “outlandish” neon way. You have to apply this lipstick with a really light hand because it is so highly pigmented and loaded with colour and you can really go overboard with the thickness and intensity if you go on swiping it over and over again on your lips. There are times when I have just dabbed it lightly on lower and upper lips and blended it out with my fingers and it looks great as a smooth lip stain.

When I use this lipstick with full-coverage effect, I keep the rest of my makeup pretty subdued, sometimes even skipping blush, and instead just using a bit of highlighting powder on the highest point of the cheekbones. For eye makeup, I like to stick to black eyeliner on the upper and lower lash lines and a tiny dash of highlight eyeshadow in a soft, peachy-nude shade with minimal shimmer just below the brow bone, and then add lots of mascara.

Pros of Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick No. 10 – Provocative Pink:

  • Rich, creamy, and highly pigmented.
  • Feels super-soft, smooth and comfortable on the lips.

Cons of Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick No. 10 – Provocative Pink:

  • The tube is a bit heavy, maybe it has something to do with all that gold metal everywhere!
  • This particular shade is a matter of personal choice.
