Here’s a recap of the 14 more recently released, limited edition YSL Rouge Volupte Shines ($38.00 for 0.15 oz.) and coordinating Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.).

A lot of the shades performed well–in line with how they were marketed and consistent with their respective formula, generally–but I think seeing the late spring and early summer Rouge Volupte Shines together just emphasizes how much overlap there can be. For the most recently released four, it would have been nice to see great variety – perhaps leaning toward more of a coral or orange tone rather than more reds. The Rouge Pur Couture shades are more pigmented (as intended), so the differences are more obvious, at least!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I concur that YSL ought to have had far better variety, especially for a summer set of shades. That said, I do love a few of these. In particular, Take My Red Away and Red In The Dark Rouge Volupte Oil-In-Stick lipsticks.

Just love this orange red lipstick line – vibrant shades. Light Me Red and Take My Red Away are my firm favourites. These lipsticks looks so creamy and hydrating and I think they are worth the money.
