Amy Antoinette - A Motherhood & Lifestyle Blog: YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain - Corail Aquatique

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain - Corail Aquatique

Yves Saint Laurent has launched the ultimate hybrid lip product - Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres. The revolutionary new Glossy Stains offer the perfect partnership of high impact glossy shine and vibrant, long lasting colour. Housed in a luxurious black and gold rectangular tube, the angled doe-shaped applicator with a tapered tip allows for precise lining and filling of the lips to create the perfect pout.

I was expecting a gentle wash of colour but I was pleasantly surprised to find the formula to be intensely pigmented with a highly glossy yet non-sticky finish. I love this shade (no.7 Corail Aquatique), a soft peachy coral which is perfect for spring. The range includes 20 different shades, so whether you are wanting a feminine pink or a glamourous red, there's bound to be a colour to suit. 

The YSL Glossy Stains certainly live up to their claims of being an ambiguous lip product which embodies lipstick, lipgloss and lip stain. I think they're a great product for someone who loves gloss but wants something more long lasting. They're also a great alternative to lip stains which can be quite drying on the lips.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres Glossy Stains are priced at £22.50 and are available to buy from Boots, Debenhams and House of Fraser.

  6. I absolutely LOVE these lippies! I have this shade, and number 12. From my experience the shades that don't have shimmer in them apply a little more smoothly. Either way I think they are amazing!!

  7. Glossy lipstains! What a great idea! Usually lip stains dry out my lips and I hate two steps of lip stain and then gloss. What a great product!
