This is a quick look featuring one of the new YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in No3 Violet Incognito
. The new Rouge Volupte Shine lipsticks are already available at the YSL counter at Tangs and also at their store in Ion retailing for S$45 each. These lipsticks have a high glossy finish, and have a semi-sheer consistency. They are creamy, and goes onto the lips very smoothly. I find them very moisturising and have a hydrating effect on me. If you want a more opaque look than the current Rouge Volupte Sheer Candy, then the Shine series would be right up your alley.
I was given 5 of these Rouge Volupte Shines..and first up, is the most dramatic shade - in Violet Incognito. It is a deep blackberry shade, which shows up very wearable on me, I could have gone over a couple more times for a more intense look, but I probably swiped it twice across my lips, I applied it straight from the tube. It can get a little streaky as with dark lip colors, so I used my finger to dab and even out the color.
It is a very wearable and chic was to rock a deep dark berry shade - and definitely one of the standout shades in this collection. In the tube it looks almost black, and just super sophisticated in my opinion. I find that these last about 2 - 3 hours on me, they are not very lasting simply because of the very emolient and moisturising factor, but they are easy to apply, and I don't really have an issue with that. You wil also find that other shades which I will be featuring in the next couple of days show up more creamy and opaque.
