I really do appreciate sunshine, this week has had me reaching for my Ray Bans and embracing the warm weather. Yes, I’m a typical Brit – as soon as there is a ray of sun, my sunglasses come out and so do my summer lip colours. When the weather is colder, so is my make-up bag…well the colour tones anyway so it’s nice to bring out the bright pink lip shades for a change! Out of all the lip colours I have, the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain will forever be one of my favourites. Like certain perfumes, my lip products also remind me of old memories – this particular shade 10 was worn pretty much all of last year. I can be quite dull when it comes to my lip colours, I love sticking to one nude shade and playing it safe, but I cannot help but love this shade!
The texture of the lip stain is creamy and moisturising but it still has incredible pigmentation. The packaging itself is beautiful, I cannot fault YSL in that aspect whatsoever, the only point I would make is that I wish the texture of the lip stain was slightly thicker. Although the concept of this YSL lip product is supposed to be a lip stain and not a gloss, I do prefer a thicker formula regardless. The staying power is incredible, it lasted for over four hours and it did not leave my lips dry. Overall, I give this lip stain 9.5/10 You can buy your own YSL glossy stain here – Debenhams are actually doing 33% off! Have you tried this shade before? What is your summer product? ♥
