Rouge Ballet (04)

YSL Rouge Ballet (04) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-StickYSL Rouge Ballet (04) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick ($38.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium red with neutral undertones and a glossy, luminous finish. It had medium color payoff in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips as the texture was lightweight, emollient, and had a fair amount of slip.

I was impressed that it applied as evenly as it did, though not perfect, and wasn’t prone to settling noticeably into my lip lines. The color stayed on well for four hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

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.

Pink Safari (06)

YSL Pink Safari (06) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-StickYSL Pink Safari (06) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick ($38.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink that straddled the line of fuchsia–though it was lighter than true fuchsia–but richer and more vivid than a typical pink–paired with faint pearl and a luminous finish.

It had medium pigmentation in a single layer, which was as marketed, that delivered even coverage that was kind to imperfections on my lips. It had a more balm-like, emollient consistency, so it was easy to apply and comfortable to wear but had a smidgen of product that settled into my deeper lip lines. Thankfully, this was only noticeable in the close-up photo and not in person. It lasted nicely for three hours and felt hydrating over time.

Nude Sheer (09)

YSL Nude Sheer (09) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-StickYSL Nude Sheer (09) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick ($38.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a soft, light-medium peach with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had medium to semi-opaque color coverage that adhered well to my lips with a smooth, even application of product

The lipstick had a more balm-like consistency, which felt like it melted and became more emollient with high slip as soon as it came into contact with my lips. There was a touch of product that settled into my deeper lip lines, but the high-shine finish camouflaged this in person. It wore well for three hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.

I bought 09 Nude Sheer, and retuned it the next day. I couldn’t get past the strong artificial mango scent/taste. It lingered even after the lipstick had started to wear away.
