Now, if there’s ever been a lipstick, that claims to do it all, this surely must be it.
YSL’s new Rouge Volupté Shine is a new collection of 19 colours, that claim to smooth, and soften lips with up to 8 hours of hydration, as well as using antioxidants found in rosemary and pomegranate to reduce the look of fine lines. These are big words, but I have always enjoyed lipsticks from YSL, and in fact, they are probably my favourite items (I’m not keen on Touche Eclat or their Faux Cils mascara as I find the fragrance irritates the skin around my eyes).
Whether this lip product can live up to its description remains to be seen. The effect is meant to be lighter than a lipstick, with more of a shine effect, not similar to Givenchy’s Rouge Interdit Shine. The colour range is certainly impressive (see more here) – I particularly like no 4 Rouge in Danger shown here – and the ‘melting formula’ which differentiates it from a lipstick has piqued my curiosity.
At £23.50, they launch nationwide in February, but at that price I’m not sure I’ll be rushing out to buy one.
