Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté range has been around since 2008 and it has been growing since then – be it the limited edition launches or new additions to the range – it has become a cult favourite. The gorgeous melty shine finish and an array of fresh colours, it has been one of my favourites since the first time I tried it a few years back. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Rock’n Shine is the new addition to the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté range and it is itself a star already.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Rock'n Shine review swatches

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Rock’n Shine has a silvery cap that sparkles and inside is a lipstick bullet with a silver star that contains plant-sourced glitters running through its middle which makes the lips sparkle with rock star glitters, bringing a high-sparkling shine and intense shine. The lipstick glides smoothly and comfortably on the lips, the thin glitter film feels moisturizing, and at one with lips. The formula of the lipstick is intensely hydrating and nourishing – even the driest lips like mine. The lips are soft and supple while the coverage is medium and buildable – the dreamy smooth formula with the signature mango scent is just too good to be without.

The inspiration behind the playful, fresh shade range of Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Rock’n Shine, per Tom Pecheux, the Creative Director of Makeup, YSL Beauty, “This is definitely a lipstick that everyone can relate to. I created a colour to please every woman, from young to older, to more mature, to very pale, to very dark skin. There are elements of disco and modern punk; there’s a colour to suit every mood from happy to moody – pop a layer of lipstick on and the colours will give you joy.
