YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain - 10 Rouge Philtre
One of the products that has been raved about on the online beauty community that I have been wanting to try are the YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stains. I have been wanting to try lip stains for a long while now, but haven't found one that I have been willing to purchase (due to texture).
The YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stains are a new type of lip product. They give you the look of a gloss with a wear of a stain.
The texture and formula is incredible light and glides ont he lips smoothly (as long as you remember to keep your lips in good condition, i.e. exfoliating and moisturizing). The pigment is rich and the finish is beautiful.
I chose the shade 10 Rouge Philtre because the Spring and Summer season is all about the pop of color and this coral/red color definite gives you a pop of color. It's an incredibly pigmented color and although it is a stain, as you wear it throughout the day you get the natural look of a just bitten red lip.
I love the luxe packaging and how compact it is. The wand it comes with is perfect for an even application of the product.
Although this product is long wearing, it is not a permanent stain. If you kiss the back of your hand (or your significant other) it will transfer and it does fade a bit throughout the day, but the rich color is still present on your lips. For my preferences, it meets all of my expectations for what I am looking for in a stain. It's hydrating, smooth, and pigmented.
