YSL Rouge Volupté Shine - #19 Fuchsia in Rage

I picked up two of YSL's Rouge Volupté Shines while on vacation in New York City earlier this Summer, and I've been loving both shades. Today I'll share shade #19 Fuchsia in Rage ($39 CAD) with you, since I've been reaching for it a ton lately!



From Sephora:

"Succumb to a unique sensorial experience with dazzling color, extreme comfort, and luminous shine. The luscious, hydrating texture glides on your lips leaving a lightweight aqua shine effect, while Back Injection Technology offers extreme comfort and pleasure upon application. This innovative lipstick is formulated to protect lips from free radicals and seal in moisture for up to eight hours of hydration."


First off, can we just take a moment to appreciate this gorgeous packaging? YSL's Rouge Volupté Shines have hands down the nicest lip stick packaging, in my opinion. Packaging shouldn't matter, but when you're spending almost $40 on a lip stick, I feel like the packaging has to be nice. In the bullet, Fuchsia in Rage looks fairly scary. However, once it's swatched, it looks a lot more wearable and you can see the pink undertones. I picked this up in Macy's in NYC, and the American price was $34, so I got a savings of $5. I swatched this on my hand, and instantly fell in love. I walked around the beauty department, but I eventually came back to the YSL counter and made the splurge. 


YSL's Rouge Volupté Shines are so creamy and hydrating, and they leave your lips looking so shiny. Even though this is a purple shade, the heavy pink undertones make it very wearable. This lip stick just glides onto my lips, and one coat is all that's needed. The Rouge Volupté Shines are a slightly sheerer lip stick formula, but they still do have wonderful colour payoff. This lip stick formula keeps my lips feeling hydrating for about 3-4 hours, and the colour stays on for about 6 hours before I need to reapply. 

If you're in the market for a new, high-end lip stick, I highly recommend checking out Fuchsia in Rage. I feel like this shade might get skipped over a lot since it does look quite scary and bold in the tube, but it's absolutely beautiful on the lips. Definitely check it out the next time you're at a YSL counter! :) I also think that these lip sticks make amazing gifts, since a lot of ladies won't feel comfortable splurging on this product for themselves. I know that I would love to receive anything from YSL as a gift! If you've tried any of YSL's Rouge Volupté Shines, please leave me your shade recommendations in a comment below!


  1. such a pretty shade on you. I have the nude in private which is a more mauve pink and love it. It is so pricey but I think it is totally worth it. Planning to get a few more on my next trip to the city :)
