Give Me Lip: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine in Fuchsia in Rage (19)

(Applied Very Lightly Directly From Tube)
Price: $34.00 from Sephora

Is it Worth It Let Me Work It: I'll admit, roughly 50% of the reason I buy YSL products is for the packaging... Well that, and my desire to form some sort of connection to anything French. And yes, I know a good junk of the price is related to the packaging, but it is so worth it. Apparently the Rouge Volupté Shine line is formulated with hyaluronic acid (hello, hydration), antioxidants (via pomegranate & rosemary extracts), and candellila resin (to lock in moisture), and mineral pigments. While Sephora states it can hydrate for up to eight hours... I'm unconvinced. However, this is one of my favorite lip product formulas. 
"Fuchsia in Rage" is a high-shine formula and despite the lip swatch picture, there's no noticeable glitter/shimmer. It's totally smooth, sheer, semi-hydrating, non-sticky, and this particular shade is really pigmented. In the tube, it looks a little alarming but some sort of magic happens when you apply a light layer on your lips. It lasted as pictured for about 2 hours but after the glossy top layer wore off, I was left with a light stain that lasted 4-5 hours.
