YSL Rouge Volupté Shine - 6 Pink in Devotion

I picked up quite a few new lip products during my recent trip to New York, including two of YSL's Rouge Volupté Shines! I have been lusting over these bad boys for so long, and I'm really happy that I finally made the splurge. Today I share with you YSL's Rouge Volupté Shine #6 Pink in Devotion.

I have to admit, one of the major selling points of these lipsticks is the absolutely gorgeous packaging. YSL has the most beautiful lipstick packaging, in my opinion. But even after swatching these lippies, I still wanting to take them home with me. #6 Pink in Devotion is described as a bright hibiscus pink, and I would have to agree. Although this lipstick doesn't look overly bright in the bullet, it does give a nice punch of colour to your lips.

Pink in Devotion has a tiny amount of blue based shimmer in the formula, but I find that it doesn't quite show up on the lips. However, this lipstick does give a gorgeous shine, even without the shimmer. YSL claims that the Rouge Volupté Shine line offers up to 8 hours of hydration, but I find that I only get about 2 hours before I feel the need to reapply. Since this is supposed to be a hydrating lipstick, I was hoping for a more long-lasting dose of moisture. The colour from this lipstick lasts much longer, about 6 hours. So, if your lips are feeling dry, you can apply a clear balm over top of the Rouge Volupté Shines.

YSL's Rouge Volupté Shines do come with a steep price tag... $39 CAD. I would definitely classify these lipsticks as a splurge item, and they would also make an excellent gift. I've been loving the two shades that I bought (I also have #19 Fuchsia in Rage), but I think it will be a while before I can justify adding any more to my collection. I also have my eyes on Chanel's Rouge Coco Shines, which formula do you prefer? Leave me  a comment below letting me know if you've tried YSL's Rouge Volupté Shine formula before, and which shades are your favourites :)
