YSL Tender Peach Rouge Volupte Lipstick Review, Photos & Swatches!

YSL Tender Peach Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick

YSL Tender Peach Rouge Volupte is a creamy and vibrant, medium pinky-peach with a shiny finish. The color is opaque with one swipe.
An object of desire, this award-winning lipstick is wrapped in a romantic, elegant gold case that exudes luxury. Each signature shade saturates lips in captivating color that’s intensely pigmented, and imparts an irresistible glossy shine. The long-lasting, comforting formula is highlighted with a unique Color-shine Complex that leaves lips visibly smoother, plumper and more radiant. Light, silky texture smoothes on a veil of satiny, sensual color that’s altogether alluring . Companion mirror on top of case ensures easy application any time. SPF 15. -
The quality is what you'd expect from a YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick. It's buttery soft and creamy and applies to the lips like a dream. Despite it's creaminess, it feels very light - almost slippery on the lips. It also has the signature mango scent.

YSL #26 Tender Peach Rouge Volupte Lipstick

Here is YSL Tender Peach Lipstick on my lips. My lips are lightly lined with MAC
Stripdown Lip Liner.

The biggest downside with the Rouge Volupte formula in general is, they aren't very moisturizing and they don't have the best staying power. And, for $34 a tube, it's quite pricey for a lipstick that you'll have to constantly reapply.

Nevertheless, it hasn't stopped me from purchasing this lipstick, because it's just so pretty! This is my second Rouge Volupte (I own #2 Sensual Silk as well), and I now have got my eyes on #13 Peach Passion and #30 Faubourg Peach.

Here are some swatch comparisons to similar colored lipsticks:

Tender Peach looks almost exactly like Just Peachy except for the fact that the finishes are completely different. Tender Peach has a high shine glaze finish, while Just Peachy is matte. I'm not sure if my mind was playing tricks on me or not after staring at both swatches.. but Tender Peach seems to be the tiniest bit more peach toned than Just Peachy. Shygirl is the lightest of the three and has the strongest peach tone. Tender Peach actually looks like the Love Child of Shygirl and Just Peachy.. It's like the exact mixture of the two shades.

  1. This color is gorgeous! I have yet to try a YSL l/s, but I have my eye on a few. It's a little disappointing that they don't stay on for long, :o(

  2. This is my favorite Rouge Volupte - for an exact dupe, try Victoria's Secret Scrumptious, on the lips they look the exact same & VS is of course lots cheaper <3

  3. Thanks for the swatches, i will purchase it this summer and when my MAC Jazzed is over, since i find the colours a bit similar. xoxo

  4. Yes i agree with Amy!& this lippy is my all time fave!xo

  5. I've always wanted to try the YSL Rouge Volupte but can't justify spending that much money on pretty packaging. I was eying this shade but thank goodness you posted comparisons seeing as I already have the WnW one! Thanks so much!


  6. wow!! that is such a gorgeous lip swatch!! I just bought Peach Passion but this shade is also on my drool list...

  7. i want this :(. i've got 2 sensual silk and i loove the texture!

  8. The colour is gorgeous! I've never tried any YSL lippies as they are quite expensive but I definitely want to give one a go!


  9. Pretty color, reminds me of Benefit's Lady's Choice lipstick.

  10. that is gorgeous on you, and a lovely color overall!

    love, Shelly from:

  11. Elegant! But what do you do with the lipstick holder when you're done with the lipstick? Seems way too nice to be sitting in a drawer or, heaven forbid, in the trash. Do you know if people have attempted to refill this with something?

  12. OMG this is EXACTLY the colour i've been looking for! Beautiful! Thanks hun.

    As an aside tho, i really want more of these YSl lipstick, they're just my absolute favourite.
