Yves Saint Laurent Gloss Volupté: Voluptuous Kisses in 2014!

Seems every other high-end makeup junkie has a stash of the classic, melt-on-your-lips, gorgeously-packaged Rouge Volupté lipsticks in their drawer, so I’m expecting some of the fanaticism to continue in the new year with the launch of 24 brand new shades of Gloss Volupté. (Shade availability may vary by country, so check with your local counters for more information!)

If you like the plush, lightweight, balm-like feel of the lipsticks, you will probably also love the weightless “melting” feel of these new-generation glosses that give high shine in one light coat without needing to glop on a thick layer of product. No gummy, greasiness or stickiness! 

The adorable lip-shaped applicators come with a hollow well in the center, and a gentle bend, to pick up just the right amount of product, curve over the lip surface comfortably, and distribute product evenly.

I received 4 shades for reviewing/swatching purposes, so unfortunately I won’t be able to show you every single color but the names and numbers are all listed below for reference.
