YSL Smoking Plum (48) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-StickYSL Smoking Plum (48) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick ($38.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a soft, light-medium plum with cooler undertones and a luminous finish. It had a glossier finish with a lot of shine but wasn't shimmery. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and balm-like with a lot of slip. It feels a lot like a tinted lip balm, which made it easy to glide across my lips--almost too smooth!--and comfortable to wear.
It had semi-sheer to medium coverage, which could be built up to semi-opaque pigmentation but always had translucency to it, which was as marketed. It stayed on well for three and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.
