I’m a HUGE fan of lipsticks! All colours, brands & finishes (although I do have some favourites!). I only have a selection of glosses that I go for when I don’t want to wear a lippy. You may, or may not, know that I’m a total YSL fan – I’ve loved pretty much everything I’ve got of theirs. I was recently sent these new gorgeous YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres* (aka as the YSL Glossy Stains). They are luxurious, as is the entire the YSL beauty range & as you can imagine the quality of them are second to none.
RRP: £22.50 available from HERE.
They are fairly expensive, considering their Touche Eclat foundation is £5.50 more(!) but you’re getting a good quality product for the price. (But still, I do wish they were around £13-£15!)
The lip gloss wand is a slanted ‘arrow-like’ shape which I feel that totally makes application easy. It’s quite bendy though when you put it on your lips – always makes me think it’s going to break but it seems to be fine 🙂
The formula is in between a gloss, a lip stain & a lip balm! It’s not sticky & has such a gorgeous LIGHT YET CREAMY finish to it. It feels like I have nothing on which is totally a bonus. It lasts me a fair few hours before I need to re-apply. I think #17 Encre Rose has to be my favourite out of the two. It’s a beautiful light blue-pink colour, totally summer worthy!
Overall, I’m very happy with these Glossy Stains. I would reccomend these to anyone who is out there for a good quality, ‘stick-free’ & hydrating lip gloss. But, ALSO if it was a colour they couldn’t find elsewhere (this is purely down to the price)! However, the YSL Glossy Stains, Revlon lip glosses & the Intense Lipgloss range by Illamasqua have become my ultimate favourites!
