YSL Corail Jalouse (32) Rouge Volupte Lipstick
I ended up caving and buying the remaining two new shades of Rouge Voluptes from the spring collection (you can see my review for the other two here). Rouge Voluptes have a thicker, creamier consistency and feel, so they glide onto lips very easily and are–generally–intensely pigmented and have opaque coverage. Both shades were moderately hydrating, wore well, and were comfortable to wear. The formula has a sweet, mango scent but no discernible taste.
YSL Corail Jalouse (32) Rouge Volupte Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium, warm-toned pink that leans slightly coral with how much warmth it has. It had rich, opaque color coverage, and the consistency was very creamy and glided on easily. As it is a lighter shade, it can sometimes show “lines” if you press your lips together–it is not too bad but still a little noticeable. This shade wore well for three hours. Tom Ford Beauty Summer Fling (04) (LE, $49.00) is lighter. Tarte Pink Peony (P, $16.00) is warmer. Givenchy Rose Taffetas (201) (P, $36.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Urban Decay Naked (P, $22.00) is more muted. NYX Blush (P, $4.00) is lighter. MAC Flamingo (LE, $16.00) is warmer, lighter. MAC Betty Bright (LE, $16.00) is brighter, warmer. See comparison swatches.
YSL Rose Asarine (34) Rouge Volupte Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a brightened, pink-red with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy finish. It had good pigmentation, though it seemed a little more emollient/wetter compared to Corail Jalouse, so it didn’t have the same creamy look when applied (lighter in appearance). This shade wore well for five hours and left a stain that lingered behind. MAC Feeling Amorous? (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Revlon Whimsical (115) (P, $8.99) is cooler-toned. Guerlain Provocative (863) (LE, $49.50) is less glossy. Urban Decay Catfight (P, $22.00) is darker. Chanel Suspense (P, $34.00) is less glossy. Guerlain Girly (P, $49.50) is cooler-toned, darker.
