It has been years (almost seven?) since the release of YSL original Rouge Volupte and the brands has added many lines of lipsticks since. Earlier this spring, a new range called Oil in Stick was released, which isn't too different from existing Rouge Volupte Shine.
I wasn't sure if I like the name but just by looking at the range (decently pigmented brights that's glossy and not opaque), I knew I have to try at least one shade.
I still love their gaudy gold tube (one is enough for me though)! The newer ones have ditched the actual mirror (the smooth top is reflective enough) which actually gives the tube design a smoother transition.
The color I picked, 43 Rose Rive Gauche, is a warm strawberry pink. The color has a cream (white) base that isn't pasty at all and just like many other white based lipsticks, it looks a bit done-up on face that free of base-makeup. The glide is smooth, effortless, never squishy or messy.
On the lips, Rose Rive Gauche is an refreshing color for spring (maybe not as bright/juicy as I want for summer). I find the quality to be very high (as good as the Bobbi Brown Luxe, in a different way) and I love the creamy look but jelly-like application.
I like it, not repurchasing kind of like though.
