If you have trouble choosing between lipstick, lip gloss and lip stains, this is the product for you.
For reasons unbeknownst to even myself, I’ve always shied away from lipstick, instead opting for lip gloss. I now think that a barely there glossy lip is more of a young woman’s game and/or is best suited to a more casual look.
As I ease myself into the colourful world of lipstick, YSL glossy lip stains are the perfect product. I have the shimmer of a gloss with the medium coverage of a lipstick and the staying power of a lip stain.
Even though my lips are naturally quite dark, the YSL glossy stain in 26 Violine Surrealiste (a plummy purple) gives good coverage so the colour is true, gives the shine of a gloss without stickiness or the dreaded liplash (strands of hair caught in your lip gloss) combined with the moisturising properties of a lipstick.
As with all YSL products, the packing is lovely; these stains are part of the YSL vintage collection so they have a slightly old school feel to them. They also smell wonderful.
The stains come in six colours:
21 Orange Fusion
22 Prune Minimale
23 Fuschia Cubiste
24 Fuschia Intemporel
25 Fuschia Neo-Classic
26 Violine Surrealiste
so you are sure to find a shade to suit you.
