YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in Orange Impertinent

As the weather turns warmer(well, not yesterday when we were hit by a few inches of snow), I tend to go for vibrant lip color. I still wish I could rock bold red colors but I can't. I love coral lip colors for the summer and I picked up a gorgeous coral shade from YSL with the Sephora 15% sale.

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 16 Orange Impertinent

It is hard to justify in purchasing a CAD $39 lipstick so with the Sephora 15% sale earlier, I gave myself "permission" to pick up one.

I have another shade from this Rouge Volupte Shine last year and I really enjoy the formula. It is very moisturizing with gorgeous shine finish. Not your typical moisturizing lipstick which does not stay on long. 

It may not look as coral as in the picture shown above. But in real life, it is coral. I have a few other coral shades but they look very orange and too vibrant. This one is not. It has some pink or red undertone to it which balance with the coral/orange shade very well. I feel this shade is very wearable and is perfect for a lot of skin tones. 


  1. Agree, very wearable. I like it that it has a pinkish undertone. I tend to go for these and pinkish salmon or are they actually the same? I can't tell :D. But I've been drawn to these colours for quite some time after my nude fix.

    Bold red is a different story. I've been looking for an excuse to wear one. I guess it depends on the mood as well. So far it has not come :D.

    1. I am really enjoying this. Wearing it non-stop since I got it. It actually goes on brighter on the lips than being swatched so I apply a little and then use my fingers to blend it out so it won't look too much.
