The Rouge Volupté Perle color range is increasing by six shades for fall. That was exciting news for those of us who have been hooked on Rouge Volupté Perle ($34) since its introduction last year. The ultimate makeup bag accessory, this creamy and nourishing lipstick is enveloped in a luxurious gold case with the timeless YSL logo that speaks to its elegance. It makes my lips feel soft and supple instantly, while it drenches them in gorgeous color with a satiny-pearl finish.
The formula offers a perfect blend of nourishing and soothing ingredients with voluptuous pearls (transparent crystal pearls and colored pearls) that bless the lips with a subtle shine that’s utterly irresistible. I have lived in Stellar Pink (#104) since its introduction last July. It's long-lasting on me, feels great, and offers perfect pink color. I think I've bought three of them!
Now, I have a new love, one of the six fall shades. Brazen Plum (#109) is right up my alley. The rosy-plum shade is perfect for me any time of year. It will be special, though, this fall - when our thoughts turn to colors with more intensity.
I took a few swatch photos of Brazen Plum, outdoors in full sun. You'll see why this shade jumped right out at me when I surveyed all six. It has the pearly look of its sister shades and a divine color suitable for those who don't want to lead with their lips.
The new shades are numbered #107 to #112. I'll provide simplistic descriptions of each shade, but urge you to go see them before you select. The first two, #107 and #108, are very light. The new shades get more intense as their identifying numbers increase. The #111 and #112 shades are dark (from my fair-skinned perspective).
