What is it?
YSL is one of the most coveted and prestigious beauty lines that have been around for decades. I still remember being 4 years old and watching my mom swipe on her YSL classic matte red lipstick before heading off to a party (I’m pretty sure genetics is one of the reasons why I’m obsessed with YSL..lolz). Anyways, this year they’ve put together a lip set consisting of 4 full size lip products. You get their rouge pur couture lippie in the shade 52 Rosy Coral, Glossy stain in the shade 12 Corail Fauve, Volupte Sheet candy in 4 Succulent Pomegranate and their Rouge Volupte Shine in the shade 12 Corail Incandescent. As you can see, all four lip products are a shade of coral.
Rouge Pur Couture in #52 Rosy Coral: This is your typical true coral shade that is supposed to be super pigmented with a satin finish.
Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in #12 Corail Fauve: This is your redish coral shade that’s a lip gloss/lip stain duo.
Volupte Sheer Candy in #4 Succulent Pomegranate: It’s a sheer glossy lip balm that’s supposed to be a sheer bright pink.
Rouge Volupte Shine in #12 Corail Incandescent: This is a bright Cajun coral that’s a medium coverage lippie that gives you colour and shine in one swipe.
Rouge Pur Couture in #52 Rosy Coral: This shade is nice and the perfect true coral. The only down side is that it’s not as pigmented as I thought it was going to be, but you can def layer the lipstick for more colour.
Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in #12 Corail Fauve: I love this lip colour. I find that it does what it’s supposed to do, plus it’s a really pretty stain on your lips in the Fall!
Volupte Sheer Candy in #4 Succulent Pomegranate: This is completely sheer to the point where you don’t even see a little bit of colour on your lips (which is understandable given it is from their lip balm line). I don’t think I’d buy any lipsticks from this line on its own BUT I’m glad it’s in this set because I got to try it out.
Rouge Volupte Shine in #12 Corail Incandescent: This colour was kind of a bummer for me. I was expecting this shade to be a little bit more pigmented and it wasn’t. BUT, the formula on your lips is incredible. It keeps your lips soft and smooth.
The set as a whole: For the price, this set seems like a steal. You’re getting 4 full size lipsticks for the fraction of the price. The only downside is that it’s not as pigmented as the set makes it seem to be (or maybe I just had super high expectations).
