As far as luxe lips go Yves Saint Laurent holds major rank. Rouge Pur Couture ($36.00 // Sephora) is the latest and is said to give luxurious, rich color that dresses the lips with intense hydration and antioxidant care.. all in one stroke.
The packaging is primarily gold with YSL written in black. There is a wonderful heft to it and looks edgy, nothing cheap feeling about this case.. just couture.
There are many shades available and I was sent two of them in 09 Rose Stiletto and 19 Fuchsia (which is listed on the Sephora website as limited edition).
09 Rose Stiletto // rich berry rose
19 Fuchsia // bright fuchsia pink
The formula is so smooth and light... it's truly like letting silk drift over your lips. I'm not saying that to try and be dramatic - that's literally what it feels like. In these two shades one stroke really does give you completely opaque pigment and creamy, comfortable wear. Wear time was around 4 hours, which is usual for me and lipstick - less if I have something to eat or drink. A slight stain was left behind, which is something I like because even if I apply a clear balm over-top it still is something more than bare lips.
Which shade of YSL Rouge Pur Couture would you like to try?
