YSL Gloss Volupte in 103 Opium Persan, 10 Or Rose, 201 Pure and 49 Terriblement Fuchsia

Oh, YSL, your new lip launches always set my heart aflutter.  No change with the launch of YSL's latest lipgloss, Gloss Volupte, which promise a sensual and intense gloss experience, with the hefty dose of luxe I expect from YSL.  This'll be picture heavy, so click on after the jump to see more.

Gloss Volupte comes in three different shade groups - Scandalously Gold (shimmering and golden), Sinfully Iridescent (sparkling couture) and Irresistibly Pure (sheer mirror-like shine).  I like how YSL are playing up the luxurious, decadent, almost naughty appeal of a wet, glossy lip - every word on the press release is seductive, sensuous and slinky.

Gloss Volupte comes with a very weird and yet utterly genius applicator.  It looks a bit alien, but the shape is perfect for outlining and filling in the lips with gloss - the pointed end gives preciseness, the undulating middle hugs the bottom lip and smooths easily over the top lip, and the shape as a whole acts as a sort of spoon, holding plenty of gloss on the applicator and meaning you don't need to dip back into the tube unless you want a very heavy application.

 As you can see, the shades are all super shiny, and vary in pigment intensity - Opium Persan and Terriblement Fuchsia are actually quite intense, whilst Or Rose and Pure are much more soft and subtle.

For someone who generally veers away from glosses and towards lipsticks, I've found myself surprisingly enamored with these plush, luxurious glosses over the past week or so.  The texture is light and balmy, gliding onto the lips and feeling squishy and slick without stickiness, and wear time is surprisingly good for a gloss - me and Terriblement Fuchsia have been stuck together like glue for up to two hours before it fades to a soft pink stain finish.  Add to that a lovely soft fruity mango scent, and it all adds up to a sensuous gloss which is a pleasure to wear - oh, and it also looks pretty good, which is nice too.

At £21, there's no doubt that these are a spendy treat - but they are, without doubt, some of the most luxurious and enjoyable glosses you'll try this year.  Find them at YSL counters, and online at the YSL beauty website.  I've got my beady little eye on Rose Satine, a lovely shimmering rose pink.
