Uh huh honey. YSL strikes again.
Well well, what do we have here? Yet another lip related post but this one that excites me quite a bit.
I went with the intention to get a lipstick and came away with a YSL Glossy Stain. Not that I’m complaining because the formula of this bad boy is absolutely divine.
I picked up shade 15 – Rose Vinyl and honestly it’s love. The glossy stains are a freaky stain, gloss and lipstick hybrid which of course intrigued me considerably. Firstly, the shade is the perfect medium, rosy pink that you can wear during the day or night. For my first Glossy Stain purchase, I wanted a wearable shade that I would, well get my wear out of. I couldn’t be happier with the shade – it’s not too cool toned, it’s not too warm either. Plus y’all know I love a bit of pink.
Application wise – I pop a thin layer on first (to stain), leave it for around 15 seconds and apply a second, glossier and more opaque coat. Voila! The staying power of this is pretty amazing considering it’s a very glossy based formula – I can eat my lunch and it’s still hanging about, shimmering away. Pretty awesome right? I’d say it lasts a good 4-5 hours before needing to be re-touched.
I’m definitely going to be eying up the other shades – I hear the L’Oreal versions are pretty awesome too. Have you tried either?
Love, Katie xo
