Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Lip StainTuesday, September 17, 2013
I wanted to try a stain to see if I could make use of this type of product when I am at work or on the go so that I could avoid having to reapply.
I bought it in shade 17 baby pink which despite its name goes on a little more lilac/purple than it appears in the applicator.
The packaging is nice as always although not as fancy as most of the other products, the applicator is a heart shaped wand which is slightly angled to make application easier, I really like this idea.
The consistency feels a little strange as it is more like a watery liquid than a gloss. On first application the colour is lovely and bright and you get the glossy finish you get from a gloss which is lovely but it does fade quite quick, The stain effect works really well as even when the gloss fades you still have the colour remaining for a fairly long time. I did really like this product as much as the other YSL products I probably because I prefer lipstick in general but I will keep it aside for long trips or busy days rather than have it as an every day lip colour.
I think it is well worth its price tag though of £22.50
