YSL #13 Rouge Volupte Lipstick

The Summer Season: YSL Peach Passion Rouge Volupte Lipstick

YSL Peach Passion (#13) Rouge Volupte Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened peachy-coral with an ultra creamy feel. Rouge Voluptes are ridiculously creamy–quite possibly the creamiest lipstick I’ve ever tried–so they do have a lot of slip. It’s easy to use more than you need, but the lipstick itself lasts a solid three to four hours, despite the slip-factor. Peach Passion is a rich, opaque shade that delivers full-color coverage with a soft, mango-ish scent.

Is this the right coral lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

  1. I will definitely buy one of these in the near future.

  2. Laia

    I don’t know if I’d wear it… that looks a bit too light for my tanned skin. Anyway it looks like a nice one!

  3. Sum

    suchhh a fantastic color…i bought it on impulse but sadly the creaminess of this makes the lipstick settle in my lip lines making the color gather in diff parts of my lips if tht makes sense…i wish it looked as flawless on my lips like it does on urs :)

  4. I LOVE these lipsticks! I’ve got “Rose Paris” and it’s fantastic! =) this shade is gorgeous, thanks for swatches! ^_^


  5. Such a pretty color on you. I really like this color I just need an equally as pretty blush for it.

  6. Leila

    Leave it! Too bright!

  7. sydney

    This reminds me of a color, Lorraine from the current custom would ware…

  8. baybee415

  9. Alisha in WI

    What would be a good dupe for this MAC or non-MAC? Almost bought it @ the last Sephora F & F but still couldn’t justify the price!

  10. Hend

    I have this shade .. but it looks very bright comparing to how I see it in real life ! and I really can’t wear it without lip liner .. otherwise it will slip here and there , it is summer here and its 36 degrees out there

  11. Lydia

    This is so pretty and summery! I don’t know if I could pull off something so bright but I think I might try this one out!

  12. Catherine

    Looks great on you! I was wondering if you knew any dupe of this lipstick that would be lighter?

  13. oh dear……my wallett is going to be hurting! this is so gorgeous!!! how do you think the color compares to MAC’s ember glow lipglass?

  14. ilona

    Wow christine this color looks amazing on you!

  15. Neena

    I need to have this!

  16. It’s not for me. Don’t like the colour or the texture.

  17. Christina

  18. maria

  19. This is VERY BEAUTIFUL. And very helpful as well! I got this on my to buy list for May! Thanks a lot! It is sooo pretty! Can’t wait to get my hands on this lippie! I’m soo addicted to Rouge Volupte! 😀

  20. Diana B

    That color looks awesome on you.

  21. inaya

    Is MAC vegas volt a dupe for this?

  22. Jenn

    I’ve been lemming this since foreverrrr!!

  23. this is gorgeous! it looks SO pretty on you :)

  24. amanda

    love this colour.
    do you think it is similar to ever hip from liberty of london, as that is now my very favorite lipsick.
    this colour looks great on you :)

  25. Abril

    YSL Lipsticks have my love forever! LOL!

  26. baby in a corner

    this colour is unusual! but i like it on you!

  27. Sara

    it looks beautiful on you!
    haha you lucky, lucky warm toned person.

    is it just me or does way more than half the makeup out there look better on warm-toned people than cool-toned people?

    • Sara

      also, is the lipstick melted? in the pic where you’re showing the lipstick itself the sides (the part that would have been in the tube if you rolled it back down) almost look like they’re melting haha. it’s probably just my screen though

    • Ehhh, I don’t know about that 😛

  28. Wendy

    I do LOVE this color and it looks great on your Christine! I just can’t spend $34 on one lipstick anymore! LOL

  29. Kathy

    That is one of the most gorgeous shades of lipstick I’ve ever seen!

    The steep price makes me sad though. I think I’ll wait for a Sephora F&F sale to snag this. :)

  31. Victoria

    wow. that color looks so nice! although a bit creamy for my liking

  32. I am so in love with coral lipsticks right now. They just seem to brighten up your complexion! I don’t own any YSL lipsticks yet, but this one is going to change that real soon. :)

  33. konconsc

    I recently bought #1 nude beige and #26 tender peach. The lipstick is very creamy but I was suprised for a creamy lipstick like that, it is pretty drying after a while. Nevertheless, i love them and I think buy more colors for sure!

  34. Viridiana

    absulutly stuning love it on you P.S. i love the full face shots gives me a better idea of how it looks on and i also wanted to thank you for all that you do :)

  35. ellie

    This really looks good on you Christine. For me this is the most beautiful peach color lipstick ever! The color is very unique. After a few hours on me this turns into a very delight light pink on my lips. Also, super super creamy. The only thing i hate about this is the packaging. I have 2 rouge volupte and both lipsticks are somewhat broken in a sense that once i twist the lipstick to bring it up it won’t go down anymore! I really want to try their other colors but i’m afraid i’ll have the same problem with their packaging. Does anyone have the same problem with me?

  36. Melly

    I think this would be the perfect summer color if it was a bit more sheered out!

  37. Kathryn

    This colour really brightens up your complexion, Christine! I think this would be a nice alternative to an everyday neutral colour.

  38. Marissa B

    Love it! might be my next Rouge Volupte!

  39. Erin K

    where are these available? At makeup counters?

  40. Kristin

    I bought this lippie after agonizing for an hour yesterday in sephora. ITS GORGEOUS! I was put off by the price at first, but a little goes quite a long way so I know itll last forever. I also found it goes well with NARS Giza gloss for added shine.

  41. Wi

    Christine, do you think that h=this color is smilar to Fabourg Peach color?

  42. this is so gorgeous and the exact shade im looking for so it’s def on my to-buy list thought it’s ridiculously expensive. thnx for swatching

  43. Wendy

    Love it, but not sure it’d go well with my NC35 skin. xD

  44. Jenny

    Just as a warning. These lipsticks are sooooooo creamy that they fade really quickly. It makes me paranoid that I’m licking half of it off at any particular point. Also, it has a really weird smell and I’m not usually bothered by smells from my lip products. Just warning people who are going to buy!

  45. Sarah

    What’s the MAC color that is similar to this?

  46. Tiffany

    Hi, because of the creaminess, does this lipstick tend to settle into the lips’ lines?
    which lipstick is less creamy in YSL rouge volupte line?

  47. I love the color! Will buy it!

  48. daphne

    Ok, this is wild – I can’t even tell you how much BRIGHTER this color is on me. Like Vegas Volt, maybe more so. Very weird, since you and I have very similar coloring!

  49. Mmmm!! Looks good enough to eat!

  50. Sheryl

    I love the color! It looks so creamy and super-pigmented. However, I would not pay $34.00 on a lipstick. =(
