Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain

Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain is the latest lip product to be released by YSL and a fist of it's kind for the cosmetics industry.
These are a lip stain that is glossy (like the name would indicate) and if you've ever used a stain you know how drying and matte they look on the lips, which is usually the reason why I steer clear of them but these are completely different.

The two shades I picked up are:

No.9 Rouge Laque, a true red (and the shade used in the promo image)

No.12 Corail Fauve, a bright coral

The texture of these is quite unique, they feel creamy when applying and cooling at the same time and you do have to build up the intensity in stages, they aren't the sort of product you can just slap on and go.
They are worth the extra effort though as once they are on they stay put for the majority of the day without touch-ups and the best part of it is that despite the glossy finish these stay put and don't bleed outside my natural lip line.

They have a pleasant scent and the packaging is gorgeous, they are well worth the £22.50 they cost.
