YSL Yves Saint Laurent, Gloss Volupte Lip Gloss Review!

The new YSL Gloss Volupte lip gloss line is one word; Stunning. The packaging, feel, sent and lasting colour is amazing.

I picked up the shade 209 Smoking at work while waiting for a friend to purchase a lip gloss herself, this was an impulse buy but it is one that certainly is worth the money.

The idea with 3 of the lip glosses are to use them as topcoats to change the look of your lips or lipstick, the others in the collection you can use as stand alone lip glosses with gold shimmers or use them to enhance your lipsticks.

There are 23 shades in the collection.



Price: RRP £21.


Time Trailed: 2 days, one while out in the night and throughout the following day.


The unique thing about these lip glosses is the patented applicator, it’s shaped like lips, so one side is for fuller lips and one side is for thinner lips, and helps create a precise application. the applicator is soft, flexible and for me, personally the best applicator I have used with regards to lip gloss. It doesn’t pull out too much of the gloss from the container so there is less wastage.


The scent is very delicious, sweet but not too sweet where you’d want to lick the formulation from your lips! The gloss stays on for longer than I expected, with the chosen colour semi staining your lips which in my opinion helps keep the colour on for longer. The colour is quite sheer but this is buildable.

I’ve swatched them on a few lipsticks so you can see what they’re like on different brands.

Bare lips.
