A New Generation Forumla
No more sticky gloss that doesn't hold. Airy light yet intensely shiny, the new GLOSS VOLUPTÉ ultra slim, nongreasy, nonsticky texture coats and defines the lips in a high fidelity veil of dazzlingly wet colour to create extremely sensual, deliciously alluring lips.
The Secrets Of The Forumla: 'All of the lipsticks in the VOLUPTÉ family are endowed with exceptional textures that literally melt onto lips, creating an intense sensation of comfort and well being. Ten times creamier in contact with the lips than a classic gloss, GLOSS VOLUPTÉ new generation formula has successfully met the challenge of combining smoothness and lightness to instantly add the most exquisite wet looking shine to the lips. Thanks to the patent pending Light Kiss System technology, it coats lips in an ultra thin, non sticky, velvety veil." - Caroline Negre, Scientific Communication Manager Yves Saint Laurent Beauté
The Light Kiss System: This patent pending technology is the perfect combination of a gelifying system and oils for a truly sensual application every time. The texture transforms, melting onto the lips, covering them in a heavenly veil infused with a cocktail of balm like care. Thanks to this unique technology, the lips are wrapped in an ultra thin, ultra lightweight film that holds without smudging or feathering. The lips are drenched in pure, non sticky, absolutely sheer colour.
The Glossy Optimzier: The Glossy Optimizer is made with lightweight, shiny oils and a vinyl polymer that form a thin veil on the lips' surface to boost their lustrous appeal. It wraps the lightweight, shiny oils creating a perfectly smooth, consistent mirror like surface for optimal light reflection and a volumizing 3D optical effect. The lips are plumped with exceptionally dazzling, ultra glossy shine.
A Cutting-Edge Applicator
A 'Bouche A Bouche' Caress
Designed in the shape of pouting lips, the patented applicator mimics the experience of a tender kiss. Unlike any other applicator, with its evocative shape and delicate foam, it embraces every curve of the lips in a naturally intuitive, ultra sensual gesture. A sensory, feminine caress. A sensual, intimate pleasure.
The Secrets Of Its 3D Design: 'The unique shape of this patented applicator was designed in three dimensions so that each application can be equally:
Precise: thanks to the tapered tip that creates a clean edge along the contours and corners of the lips.
Ergnomic: thanks to the wider, curved mid section that perfectly shapes the lips in a single, intuitively guided wave of the wand.
Sensorial: thanks to the exceptional flexibility provided by the suppleness of the applicator's material and hollow section.
Adapted: thanks to the mini reservoir in its core that provides just the right amount of gloss which is then generously yet consistently spread across the lips' broadest surfaces."
