Yves Saint Laurent YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain 7 Corail Aquatique and 15 Rose Vinyl Swatches

When it comes to lip products, color is very important as well as wear time. Sometimes we have to reapply the same lipstick over and over again because either it dries our lips within several hours or simply the color faded. YSL takes the hassle out of the equation and brings you a lip stain line that is complete in long lasting wear time.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture comes in a nail polish shaped design case that has a see through window on both sides. The window shows the color of the lip stain. The design is lightweight and made of plastic with sleek smooth design surface.

There are a total of 20 shades available while #13 Rose Tempera being Nordstrom exclusive and #20 being Sephora exclusive. Today we’ll showcase #7 Corail Aquatique and #15 Rose Vinyl.

When you twist off the cap with the brush attached, you’ll notice the shape of it being very unique from the other doe foot applicators on the market. It’s in a slanted spatula kind of shape with soft short bristles. The thin flat brush provides a perfect control for precision.

And if you take a closer look at the tube inside, you’ll see the hole with a very narrow opening. This design ensures that every time when you pull out the brush, you get exactly the right amount of product without having to wipe it off on the edge.

7 Corail Aquatique is a peachy coral color that is splattered with shimmers all over it.

15 Rose Vinyl is a hot pink color with hints of fuchsia. There are also shimmers inside this bottle. Compare to 7 Corail Aquatique, the shimmers are even finer and more saturated.

When applied, these lip products provide the extra shine and is very long wear because of it being a stain. The colors are lightweight which melts into the lips that last for hours. There is also an intense glossy finish with shimmers scattered all over. Being a lip stain, these colors have full coverage on the lips. So what you see in the tube is basically what will show up on the lips. I do find the consistency being very wet like liquid  when you first apply it, but it gets thicker within minutes and luckily it doesn’t feel sticky. One thing I want to mention is that you won’t be able to remove the color with water or even makeup wipes. I had to use makeup remover to fully remove them.

YSL provides such a nice little lippy that brings intense long wear combined with such high shine finish. And the colors are absolutely sexy. There are 20 colors available to choose from with different shades that can suit any occasion and any skin type.

    I have always loved YSL and their packaging. Historically there lipstick packaging are so luxurious with it’s detailing. These lippies are really long lasting. I tried a few at Sephora.

    How is the control feel on the slanted brush tip?

      I lost count after 5 hours. I do think they could last a lot longer. It is a stain after all.
