YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain review




I was lucky enough to receive some lovely gifts as stocking fillers last Christmas and this product was one of them. This is the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in the shade 7 Corail Aquatique. The glossy stain formula goes on like a typical gloss, but once you leave it for some time it turns into a lip stain and because of this the colour does go a bit darker than it does when you first put it on. At first this goes on a lovely coral pink colour, once it dries it turns into a darker pink, which is still a great colour, but bare in mind that there is a colour change. The applicator has a pointed shape to it, which means it makes the application really precise and pretty easy to get the hang of. You do need to apply 2 coats of this to get the full colourful and glossy impact you are expecting to see from it.


As you can see from the photos the packaging it really pretty, so you are definitely getting your money's worth when it comes to that. In terms of the product it is a lovely lip stain to wear as it feels and looks really great on, however I wouldn't say that you can't find anything else like this in the drugstore because I'm pretty sure you can. I'd say that if you can afford it great, but if you can't or don't want to buy it then I'm sure there are more affordable options out there, or you could ask for someone to give it to you as a present perhaps. It retails for £26- definitely a luxurious price tag so I'm very happy I have it and I do really, really like it.


What it looks like once it's applied.

I really hope you liked this review. If you have one of these tell me what you think of them, I'd love to know. 

Thanks for reading my blog xxx

    1. They rock when it comes to packaging, I think because of the gold detail they always have on the packaging. :) x
