The newest lip product from YSL can’t be defined by one category alone. YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain is a lipstick, a lip gloss and a lip stain all in one! If you’re looking for a lip product that delivers color, shine, feels great and lasts, YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain is for you. Read on for more…
I always think it’s rare when a product comes along that is truly revolutionary, but YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain definitely fits in that category. Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain delivers the rich, pigmented color and longevity of a lipstick, plus the shine of a gloss. All that gorgeousness without a tacky, sticky feeling.
I’ve been wearing four of the shades (#14,17, 15 and 7, above) and can attest that this is a different kind of lip product than I’m used to using. I love the freedom and flexibility of a lip gloss, but hate the stickiness and having to reapply to get a pigmented color. This formula is featherlight on the lips. I love the rich color of a lipstick, but am not a fan of the matte formulas (too dry) and to be honest, sometimes a lipstick is just too dressy for running to Target. With YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain, I get everything I love. Plus a case so chic, it looks like more like a nail polish.
The 19 colors (#13 is a Nordstrom exclusive and #20 is a Sephora exclusive) are mouth-watering and application is easy. The applicator looks different than anything I’ve used on my lips before: a flat shape with a pointy tip. The flat side deposits the color where you need it and the pointed tip acts as a liner. But the real reason you want YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain is the formula. A high-tech blend of polymers, oils and silicones work together to create a finish on the lips that is exceptional. I’m not sure I want to go back to other lip products!
