I have always loved lip glosses, but I really prefer them to be lightweight, non-sticky and beautifully shiny. It should, therefore, come as no surprise that I absolutely adore the Yves Saint Laurent Gloss Volupté formula, and I recently purchased three shades: 2 Or Saharienne, 19 Rose Orfèvre and 20 Nude Carat. All three of the shades that I selected are more sheer-leaning glosses that do impart a lovely wash of color. They can be worn alone, or top your favorite lip liners and lipsticks.
2 Or Saharienne is a dusty rose with golden shimmer
19 Rose Orfèvre is a warm pink with golden shimmer
20 Nude Carat is a golden peachy nude with golden shimmer
The Gloss Volupté formula is very lightweight and comfortable on the lips, it boasts the perfect amount of cushion, but it is able to cling to the lips without the least bit of stickiness. Furthermore, it boasts a gorgeous shine that is punctuated by a luminous shimmer that is tastefully done, rather than overdone. I get several hours of wear out of a single application, and find that the novel shaped applicator lends itself to easy application. The pointed tip is perfect for lining the lips, while the wider area fills in the lips effortlessly. It should be noted, however, that the Gloss Volupté formula has the distinct fruity scent and taste for which YSL is known. I do find that the taste fades fairly quickly, but if you are sensitive to fragrance, then you should go smell them before making the purchase.
Yves Saint Laurent premieres the first light weight non-sticky lip gloss. A precious liquid, light yet intensely glossy, its ethereal texture is a celebration of pleasure that invites indulgence. In a breath of life, lips are filled with a reflective and radiant color. The unique patented applicator envelops the lips in full color and allows for a precise application.
Tips: Apply the Golden top coat to add a dazzle of glitter, Pure top coat for intense shine, or the Smoking top coat for a day to night look. The unique patented applicator envelops the lips in full color and allows for a precise application. Gloss Volupte is available in 23 irresistible Shades.

All three are very pretty shades, and I love the no stickiness. But when I comes it gloss, I like opaque color if I can find it.ReplyDelete
They are pretty indeed, but they definitely aren't the type of pigmented shades that you would prefer, Allison. They definitely have darker shades, though.Delete
Gorgeous shades, I especially like the Rose. If only they'd make them unfragranced (even if just for me!!).ReplyDelete
I know, I think that their fragrance is too much for you! It's such a shame because the formula is perfect, and the rose shade is your kind of color!Delete
Such gorgeous shades! I don't wear gloss very often, but I love the sound of this formula.ReplyDelete
The formula is spectacular, Bailey! They are great lipstick toppers too, you should try one at some point!Delete
I love YSL lip products! I also love your shade choices. I need to go do a swatch and see if they have too much glitter in them for me or not.ReplyDelete
I love their lip products too. These shades are really easy to wear! They are definitely worth swatching. I don't feel that there is too much shimmer, but you should double check to see if it works for you!Delete
Oh my, I don't typically like glosses but Saharienne and Rose Orfevre are stunning!ReplyDelete
Aren't they gorgeous! Its definitely worth trying at least one of them!Delete
