YSL Rouge Volputé Shine Pink In Paris Has Me Dreaming Of The City Of Light

 
I REALLY want to go back to Paris. REALLY REALLY.

Until then, I’ve decided to wear Paris. Pink In Paris!

YSL Rouge Volputé Shine Pink In Paris

When I saw YSL Rouge Volputé Shine Pink In Paris($39 CDN) while browsing the HBC Beauty section online(did you know you can now order Chanel Beauty products from them too?), I had to get it. The name Pink In Paris sounded perfect to me! Plus, you know what? This is my first YSL Rouge Volputé Shine Lipstick. I’ve tried the lip balmy ones, but not one of these babies!

Swatchy Time!

YSL Rouge Volputé Shine Pink In Paris Swatch

YSL Rouge Volputé Shine Pink In Paris swatches more of a rosy coral than pink, doesn’t it? It’s nice, but not something I’d describe as Pink in Paris, ya know? But once I put it on my lips THAT’S when I saw the pink!

I’m not complaining at all, because I MUCH prefer this pinky coral shade! Oh, this is the lipstick I was wearing in yesterday’s post about the Lancome Pink Ballerine blush in case you were wondering!

YSL Rouge Volputé Shine Pink In Paris

Like most pinky corals, YSL Rouge Volputé Shine Pink In Paris will look more pink or coral depending on the light, your skin tone, and even the blush you wear. I find if I pair this with a more peachy blush, the peach tones become more prominent. As for the formula, I LOVE it. It goes on really shiny and has great pigmentation for a sheerer lipstick. The shine does dry down after about an hour. I wouldn’t call it extremely moisturizing, because as it dries down it does feel a bit tacky to me. But that makes the colour last longer, as it wore a good 3 hours for me which is kind of outstanding for a sheer lipstick.

Will I get more YSL Rouge Volputé Shines? Maybe. The price is pretty $$$ for a lipstick. When I buy a more expensive lipstick for the first time, I rarely jump to go get more of them right away. I like to see if I reach for it and wear it enough to justify the price. If I do, then sure-I’ll pick up another if the shade speaks to me.

Do you have any YSL Rouge Volputé Shines and love them? What shades are your favourites?
Who wants to come to Paris with me?

  • It’s super pretty! I don’t really like these YSL lipsticks though…mine stopped twisting after a while and it makes me grumpy, hahahhaa.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL

  • emlangille

    This is pretty. I’ve looked at them at Sephora but never thought about buying any. I have had my eye on one of the YSL Pur Couture’s, Le Fucshia

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Oooh! See this is why it’s dangerous! I don’t have a Pur Couture either…:P

  • You look gorgeous, muffin 😉 I love Paris as well. i did not know we can order this online now. I think i need this.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      HAHAHAHA thanks my friend! xo
      Yup-it’s dangerous now that The Bay ships this stuff I think…;)

  • I can comment, I can comment!!!! Hey, pretty lady 🙂 Bold lipsticks look better than ever on you. So fresh I almost forgot it’s winter.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      HAHAHA I wonder why you couldn’t before? So weird! But YAY!!
      Thanks lovely! xo

  • I don’t have any of this formula but this shade makes me want to start a collection!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL you need a red girl!

  • Shu Ting

    Wow!!! Love your eye and lips makeup. Not to mention the fun fun fun hair! 😀 😀

    So glowy and young, Tracy!!!! Does anyone believe you are a mum of Marky when you visit? I bet they won’t. I still refuse to believe it. :p :p

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Awwww, thanks Ting! You always make my day with your lovely comments! xo
      Nope. People think we’re sisters. And when we travel with my hubby they think he’s our dad HAHA! Poor guy.

      • Shu Ting

        hahahahahahahahaha! Sorry (to your husband). Poor guy indeed! My dad, who’s only 6 years older than my mum has been mistaken as her dad on several occasions too!! Oh well… That made a happy mum. My dad just brushed off the comment with “he / she must be blind”… :-p

  • I have only tried the Sheer Candy lipsticks, but this colour is so stunning that I have to pick it up!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      That’s what the lip balmy ones are called haha!
      Yes-take a look at them!

  • dowantmakeup

    I was eyeing the darker, bolder shades from this range but this colour is so pretty on you, Tracy! Stunning as always.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks love! xo
      You should get a vampy one! It would look gorgeous on you!

  • Hey Tracy, holy cow, this looks SO different on you! On me it’s not as pigmented, and it’s also basically PINK! I like it but don’t love it. The micro-glitter in there bothers me a little. I wish it were more subtle and delicate! BUT yes, I love it on you!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I don’t even notice the micro-glitter so much until it wears down, and I don’t feel it either. Weird! But thanks! Yeah it’s kind of a coral pink on me! I love how different products can look on us depending on skin tone-that’s what makes all of this so fun!

  • I want to come to Paris with you! This shade looks really pretty on you! I have Nude in Private and Corail Intuitive and I love both. I like this formula SO MUCH MORE than the original RV.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Let’s all go! WHEE!!! Thanks Tiffany! I haven’t tried the original, so nothing to compare too. But now I need to check out that nude shade! I love me a great nude lipstick!

      • The original is more pigmented, but it has a thin and slippery texture. It slips and slides all over the place, it’s weird. Nude in Private is such a good nude that isn’t too pink, too peach or too pale! I love it.

      • TracyBeautyReflections

        Huh! Good to know! Thank you!

  • Pretty pretty pretty pretty!!! This is SO perfect for you…and for spring! PS: you apply lipstick SO darn perfectly–the best I’ve seen, I think! 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Becca! xo
      LOL actually it takes me forever because I’m old and BLIND and can’t see haha-I have to take my glasses off and get right up in a mirror to do it!

  • Lily

    I LOVE this pink on you Tracy. You, my friend, are a Pink Lady! All pinks look good on you! I’m jealous >_<

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks love! xo
      HAHA I am I guess, hey? I should get a hot pink leather jacket now….

  • rachlovespenguins

    I keep looking at the Rouge Volupte Shine line but I guess none of them really speak to me, since I can never decide on a colour! Maybe one of these days…..
    And I’ll totally come to Paris with you. Imagine all the trouble we could cause! lol

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL hahaha it would be AMAZING

  • OH LORDY! that is a beautiful color!!!! I want to be in Paris toooooo =P

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      We should all go!!

  • So gorgeous! And such perfect packaging. Drooool.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! xo

  • Emma Bovary

    Pack me in your Paris bag please, I haven’t been back for years! I have had this on my list of things to swatch for a while now, the name just suckers me right in

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL you bet babe!
      Me too! The name is what finally got me!

  • I love this warm pink so much on you!
    I have one Rouge Volupte but decided the formula is not my thing. I think I will like the Shine formula much better but chance is that I would probably get another Dior Addict. 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Lena! xo
      Yeah, the Dior Addicts don’t end up as tacky I find! I got this one before another that’s an Addict, and I agree-I do like that formula better now that I know!

  • Hi Tracy,

    What a beautiful pink — Pink in Paris looks gorgeous on you! I tried the Rouge Voluptés recently, but like Lena am not sure yet that the formula is for me. The colors are all strikingly beautiful, however, and may warrant another try 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Dovey! xo
      It’s a different formula I agree! I don’t mind it actually! But yes, the colours are all so pretty and there are some new ones I hear!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Awww, thanks Evelyn! xo

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Thanks! Hahaha you are right and this is one of them!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Thanks Teri! I think it would be amazing on you too!

  • Liz

    OMG this shade is perfection on you! I don’t have any YSL lippies other than that one sample tube of Le Rouge Pur Couture, but I’ve been lemming some Rouge Voluptes for a while. Didn’t the Shines were pigmented enough but this post proved me wrong!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Yeah they are pigmented! I want to get a pale pink one now but UGGH MONIES.

  • I really like the formula as well. This shade leans pretty neutral on me, despite my cool mauvey lips, I thought it would look more pink. It’s a bit too neutral for my liking and I tend to reach for other lippies more (shade wise) I think I will give this one a new home though. I really REALLY like YSL shine #3! This one paired with a red or burgundy lipliner gives the best finish and prune shade ever.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Ooh I shall look at that one then for sure! Thanks Claire!

  • Yes! I will definitely go to Paris with you! When do we leave?
    I love this one on you. Such a happy and feminine pink.
    I own 2 YSL RVS’s: 15 Corail Intuitive and 8 Pink in Confidence. #8 is my favorite of the two because I love a pink pout! ❤

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      YAY!! Let’s go girl!
      OK I will check those shades out for sure, because you know I love a good pink pout too!

  • dont think i’ve found a coral i really love yet which is crazy since i’m not opposed to orange or pink tones. but when orange, pink, peach come together…hmmmm. i think this one might do it for me…the color looks so great!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I think it would be perfect for you!

  • Kristi C.

    This is a gorgeous color! It has been added to the TOP of my wishlist! Absolutely I’ll go to Paris with you – I can be packed in a jiffy! : D I haven’t tried any YSL lipsticks. But this looks like a good one to begin with. Rose In Tension has also caught my eye. Can you compare this to Chanel Rouge Coco Shine formula?

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Yay boy we’d have a blast!!
      I like these a bit better than the Rouge Coco. It lasts longer that’s for sure, but they feel kind of the same on the lips. Hope that helps!

      • Kristi C.

        It definitely does. A color in the Spring collection in the RCS formula caught my eye but seeing that you like this a bit better – I think I’ll check the YSL first. Thanks for the info!

      • TracyBeautyReflections

        Yay!

  • That’s a stunning colour! I’d love to go back to Paris too. This time to do some shopping. Haha. I only really went sightseeing, and even then I missed out on some things (the gargoyles at Notre Dame, for instance – sigh).

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I want to go back so bad! 2 days wasn’t enough!

  • So beautiful! Keep rolling out the pink lipsticks! And Paris *sigh* – I’m dreaming of going there for my 50th 😉

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      ME TOO. I need to go back!

  • Toya

    I think that’s a reasonable way to go about it Tracy – if you wear it a lot, it’s a good test to say you should buy another! For pricey lippies, I tend to be ‘I’ll just buy one’ so I end up having one of each crazy expensive product but rarely will I buy more than that. I just want to try them all!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Right? I need to have it for awhile and see if I really do like it. I mean it’s so much monies! Why go spend if you might wear it occasionally?

  • Gaelle

    I love that formula, I want all of them! The colour is perfect on you!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! xo
