By now you’ve probably realised I have a serious obsession with lipsticks. It’s the one thing I like to splurge on as i think it’s a real mood lifter and it’s where i like to really experiment with colour.
I recently picked up YSL’s Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick in ‘Fuchsia in Rage’ – a true, bright fuchsia. This particular shade is unlike anything I currently own, so to say I was a little excited is an understatement. It’s definitely an alluring, modern pop of colour that doesn’t look quite so purple on the lips as it does in the bullet. The packaging alone is completely swoon-worthy and the lipstick wears beautifully. While it’s highly pigmented the wear-time is nothing to write home about. It does however, impart a stain which lingers throughout the day. Expect about 3-4 hours of wear, maybe less if you’re in the mood for food (or drinks if you prefer).
From what I can see Rouge Volupte Shine is the lovechild of Rouge Volupte and Volupte Sheer Candy. On my lips it feels like the perfect combination of the two, that is, it has the pigmentation and creaminess of the Rouge Volupte formula, with the texture and glossiness of the Volupte Sheer Candy formula. Pretty perfect union if you ask me.
I’m definitely going to explore more of the shades in the range. If, like me you’re a sucker for a daring dash of colour in a beautifully luxurious package with an exceptionally emollient finish, ‘Fuscia in Rage’ will definitely satisfy your craving.
