My views on YSL Rouge Volupte Shine 'Nude in Private':

I was always fascinated by YSL makeup range! Their packaging is so classy the one you would want to flaunt in public. I saw the YSL Volupte Shine on Huda Beauty Blog and I was like I want #9, #5, #4 etc but damn! When i went to Debenhams there were hardly any shades but this #9 was something i secretly wanted because i never had a nude lipstick and the name 'Nude in Private' was catchy. You'll agree right?

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine has 19 super gorgeous shades, I am sure there is surely at least one shade you would want to own. I feel their lipstick shades will be flattering most skin tones.

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine #9 is peachy nude shade with brown undertone. The finish of the lipstick is glossy yet creamy. It feels very light on the lips and feels like you are not wearing any lipstick at all. The formula is sheer obviously yet pigmented enough to cover lips in a single swipe. It covers a minor pigmentation in just one swipe, however you can make it opaque with 2-3 swipes. Even after layering the lipstick it does not feel heavy on the lips at all.

These lipsticks glide like butter on lips, does not settle into the line and there's no need to use a lip balm underneath. Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks are very hydrating and moisturising too. They make my lips soft, supple and plump.

Since its a glossy finish the lasting power is 2-3 hours max, after that there is a need to reapply the lipstick. If you like long wearing lipsticks then this may not be the one for you! But i absolutely don't mind re applying again.

The packaging is luxurious and I love it! Its stunning gold not the on your face kinda gold. It has a color band coordinated with the shade of the lipstick in the tube. It has YSL embossed on it which makes it sooo classy! It has a very fruity yummy scent that i could eat up! No really it tastes pretty good.


1. Luxurious packaging.
2. Gorgeous Shade
3. Texture is creamy and glossy.
4. Lasts 2-3 hours which is good for sheer lipsticks.
5. One swipe is enough to cover the lips.




They have 19 shades to chose from and it compliments every skin tone. The formula is ahhmazing, sheer yet pigmented enough to cover the lips in one swipe. If you are looking for a nice glossy lipstick then this one is for you!
