Yup, it’s true. There’s actually an under $8 lipstick dupe for the YSL Rouge Volupté lipstick (you know that little famous gold lipstick tube). For $38 dollars, a lipstick better be close to magic. And well the YSL one is AMAZING and if you can splurge, I’d definitely recommend it because it’s soooo luxurious. But I know not everyone wants to drop that kind of money on a lipstick. So, for all of you who want to save a few bucks on a lipstick that is just as good as the YSL one, I’ve got the dupe for you!
I’ve been wearing the YSL Rouge Volupté Shine lipsticks for years now and love the shiny, rich color and how hydrating they are (you can read more of my thoughts here). I have dry lips, so naturally I gravitate towards creamy, nourishing lipsticks. When I got my hands on the L’Oréal Colour Riche lipsticks, I was like ‘WOW these are so close to the YSL ones!’
Similar to the YSL lipsticks which have 65% oil in them, the L’Oréal ones have 60% oil, making them also very hydrating and creamy. They glide on super easily and have the prettiest color and shine! These aren’t long-wear lipsticks, so you’ll definitely have to keep one with you to reapply throughout the day. Ps. they both smell AMAZING!
