The range is not extensive and they have only 5 – 6 colours to offer in this , as am digging MATTE Lips a lot lately here is quick FOTD and review of YSL rouge pur couture mat which I picked a while back . I almost forgot about it; as I was so in love with one of the MAC dupe of same colour, shall share in next post about that… Here is a quick FOTD with gorgeous YSL lipstick.
# 202 Rose crazy ( 1850/- INR ) as the name says is stunning shade of blue based rosy red which is easy to dupe in other brands however , the texture plus the feel may vary and this is what makes it so special and must have pick from YSL mat range. It is absolute opaque in one swipe and if you layer it little bit you get the exact colour you see in tube. It can be worn like a stain but as I always say, the beauty is when you wear it direct from tube; the power packed red lips.
It is soft , creamy and glides easily on my lips , I keep them well moisturized for matte lip colours but never use lip balm before , if you want little glossy feel you can layer a balm beforehand but if you want to get full on power packed matte lips , I recommend you not to use any balm prior to this . It feels so light weight on my lips and fades with a gorgeous pink tint and jojoba oil in it makes my lips super soft and well moisturized for hrs . Trust me, once you try this you would feel that so called “BEST MATTE LIPSTICK FORMULA” would feel rather tacky and heavy on lips; MAC I am referring to . I am not against the brand but compared to this; they are poles apart and so is the price and variety.
The packaging is absolute wow and it is housed in golden case which is prone to finger prints but still no qualms, am so in love with luxury feel of this. You are going to see some more YSL reviews, am totally smitten by the brand ever since I got their Shine lipstick and digging a lot of products lately.
On scale of 1 – 10 , I would give this puurrfecttttt 10 : From shade to texture to staying power and luxury packaging it has it all , you just need some courage to wear this , the colour is universally flattering and sits pretty on my NC 40 complexion for 5 + hrs and still doesn’t make them cry for a balm .
And this is how the color looks on my NC 40 skin tone :
I hope you find the review helpful ?
