Fall Lips with YSL: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Perle in "113 Iridescent Burgundy" & Volupté Sheer Candy in "7 Sweet Fig" Review and Swatches
Hi everyone, happy Tuesday, I hope your week is going fine and dandy. Last month I shared with you two fall lip colors from Yves Saint Laurent's Glossy Stain range and today I wanted to share with you a couple more warm and chic fall colors from the brand's Rouge Volupté line. The Rouge Volupté Lipsticks ($39 CAD) from YSL have several different finishes; the Rouge Volupté Perle is pigmented, creamy and smooth with a satin-y pearl finish while the Rouge Volupté Sheer Candy Glossy Balm Crystal Colors have a sheerer lightweight formulation. Today I have one shade from each line to swatch for you so to see some pictures, click.......

Packaging:
Oh gosh, where do I even begin...... It's pretty easy to say that YSL Rouge Volupté Lipsticks have some of the fanciest packaging in the lipstick world. The Perle (pearl) formulation features a shiny gold exterior while the Sheer Candy version features a shiny silver exterior. Around the middle of the lipstick bullet there is a strip of plastic in the color of the lipstick shade and it's covered with metal cut-outs bearing the YSL logo. So intricate and luxurious!

Rouge Volupté Sheer Candy in "7 Sweet Fig":
This is a sheer red lip balm with a light and shiny finish and the formulation feels super moisturizing and balmy on the lips. I personally find the pricing for this a bit steep because the product is essentially a tinted balm but with that said, when it's YSL and comes in such an elegant packaging, not many can resist.

Rouge Volupté Perle in "113 Iridescent Burgundy":
This is a gorgeous plummy/burgundy rose with a super lightweight formulation. Even though the formulation is so smooth and thin, the pigmentation is phenomenal; the lightest swipe yields a opaque coverage. The lipstick looks almost a bit frosty in the tube but on the lipsticks the shimmery particles are much more subtle and only contributes to a satin-y finish. Because the lipstick is so lightweight, it doesn't cling to the lips very well so its wear isn't as great as other lipsticks in similar shades.

Overall:
Both are such gorgeous shades for fall. If you are into something a bit more natural and light, go for the Sheer Candy and if you prefer an intense and saturated color, opt for the Volupté Perle!
