Rose Loulou (124)

YSL Rose Loulou (124) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-StickYSL Rose Loulou (124) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick ($38.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium pink with warmer undertones and a luminous sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation–up to semi-opaque coverage–that adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips.

The texture was lightweight, smooth, and balmy with a lot of slip, which gave it that shine and ensured it felt comfortable on my lips over time. For as emollient as the formula was, it sat beautifully on my lips. The color lasted well for three hours and felt moisturizing 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.

Rouge Studio (127)

YSL Rouge Studio (127) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-StickYSL Rouge Studio (127) Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick ($38.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a brighter, medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a glossy finish. It had a fair amount of slip to it–a little shinier and more emollient than others within the range, which says something!–so it was easy to over-apply or apply outside the natural lip line. The consistency was still very smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to wear, though, and it wasn’t prone to streaking, despite all that slip.

It had medium color payoff that adhered fairly evenly to my lips, but seemed a touch uneven along the inner area of my lips. It stayed on nicely for three and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

WHY didn’t I see/read this BEFORE I placed my Sephora order. I’d have ordered Slay for sure (I love the Rouge Lacquer lippies and this would be a new “colour experience” for me).

Rouse Loulou looks fabulous! Just the most perfect shade of true Rose pink. Even though we’re still needing to wear masks, I would buy this one for when we don’t anymore.
