Red is My Savior (110)

YSL Red is My Savior (110) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick ($38.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a bright orange-red with a lightly glossy, luminous sheen. It had medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage if desired, which was as described.

The texture was lightweight, creamy, and balm-like, so it was incredibly comfortable to apply in a fluid motion but did have noticeable slip. The color stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and left a faint stain behind, while the formula felt hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.11 oz. - $345.45 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "deeply hydrating" and "melt" onto the lips with a "pop of color" and give long-term hydration. It is described as having "medium coverage" and "irreverent shine." The color coverage was typically medium, as described, though some of the deeper shades were more buildable to semi-opaque coverage. They're a very, very creamy, emollient formula; they slip-slide as they melt against the lips during application, and it feels luxurious to apply but can be easily over-applied. It's just the type of texture that lends itself to over-application without adding more coverage, so I recommend being mindful in order to ensure you'll get plenty of usage out of each tube. Fortunately, once on, they don't feel thick or overly slippery, so it doesn't feel like the lipstick is constantly moving while worn.

They have a high-shine, almost glossy, finish that often smoothed out my lip lines without settling into them, and the latter made it more impressive due to the amount of color and slip. The wear time varied from shade to shade but typically landed between three and five hours. Some shades leave a faint stain behind--usually the mid-tone and darker hues. The formula has a sweet, mango scent but no discernible taste.

Dial R E D (114)

YSL Dial R E D (114) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick ($38.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral-orange with moderate, warm undertones and barely-there gold pearl paired with a luminous sheen. It wasn’t quite as glossy as some of the Rouge Voluptes but definitely still had some shine. It had medium pigmentation in a single layer, which was as advertised, that applied evenly across my lips.

The consistency was creamy, lightweight, and balm-like, so it was comfortable to apply and to wear, but it could have been a little more flattering to lip texture and lip lines. It wore well for four hours and was moisturizing while worn.

Both look delectably juicy and perfect for summer! But I’m still set on getting Orange Speaker instead.
