REVIEW: A brilliant pop of color and a layer of shine make your pout unbeatable and camera-ready. A lipstick does wonders to one’s overall  appearance and instantly brightens up your make-up.
Upon my first application of the YSL Rouge Volupté Shine lipstick, my lips were instantly softened. It must be the antioxidants and rich-in-vitamins fruit extracts.

I chose the darkest shade of the lot – Violet Incognito (pictured above) – thinking it would be just another layer of matte color on my lips. But I was pleasantly surprised – even with such colour intensity, the lipstick gave my lips a luscious and luminous shine. It felt lightweight and comfortable, and the hue was just brilliant and luxe.

And the best part about this lipstick? No lip gloss is required. I have a love-hate relationship with lip glosses, because they give me such kissable pout but when the wind blows, my long hair flies around and is inevitably coated with lip gloss, which then stains my face with streaks of colour for the rest of the day. Not very glam.

But with YSL Rouge Volupté Shine, I kiss this problem goodbye because the the aqua effect shine leaves no room for lip gloss to annoy me.

Rating: 5/5
