Even as a beauty blogger, I love reading other beauty blogs, and they often get me into trouble because I end up lusting after beauty products! Recently, Lisa Eldridge did a video tutorial using this gorgeous YSL Rouge Volupte Shine #19 in Fuchsia Rage. First of all, YSL lipsticks are the crème de la crème in the beauty world. Everything from their gorgeous shade selection to their insanely luxurious and beautiful packaging makes them incredible. The best part about this particular shade is that it looks completely different on the lips than it actually does in the lipstick tube.
Let’s talk about the packaging. Oh. My. God. There is no other lipstick that is as stunning as a YSL lipstick. The packaging is very rich, luxurious, and expensive looking and feeling. Every single time I am in Sephora, my eyes gravitate toward the YSL section for this reason.
#19 – Fuchsia In Rage is a vivid fuchsia shade that has a lovely shimmer to it. Since this is the Rouge Volupte Shine formula, it has a sheerness to it that makes it extremely flattering and wearable, no matter what your skin tone is. It may look intimidating in the lipstick bullet, but the product shade is feminine, flattering, and amazing once it’s applied.
See how the color is different? It still has a cool purple tone to it, but it also has hints of pink in it, and the sheerness allows you to build the color to be opaque and rich, or keep it more on the sheer side for a subtle look. The subtle shimmer in this color is also amazing. I didn’t notice it until I looked really close at my swatches, but there is a flash of bright violet shimmer in it!
The formula is very hydrating feeling…almost like a gloss in a lipstick. It leaves behind a glossy, shiny look, and coupled with the color, I am just in love with this lipstick. I am so happy I purchased this and splurged on it because it’s flattering on such a wide variety of complexions and people. I can wear this year long, and pair it with so many different makeup looks. Love, love, LOVE!
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine in #19 Fuchsia In Rage is available at YSL counters nationwide, as well as Sephora stores nationwide. You can also browse and purchase this at Sephora’s website online. Each lipstick retails for $34.00 USD. I know that this is quite a splurge, but I can tell you that I don’t regret buying this at all, and I’ll probably be keeping this by my side all year long. It’s basically my most loved lip product in my entire collection right now.
