YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain Review & Swatches

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain 8

My first experience with lipstain/cheek stain was when I purchased the Schick Stick off of HSN about 10 years ago (it might have been even be longer than 10 years ago).

Yeah, the Schick Stick, sounds like a razor to me. But actually it was a cheek and lip stain housed in a tube with a sponge applicator. It was created by the super friendly, utterly gracious, and oh so gorgeous Morgen Schick (she e-mailed me randomly a few years ago just to say hello and thanks for liking her product, I was gobsmacked to say the least).

Morgen, to this very day, still sells her brilliant cheek stain/lipstain and it remains a fond favorite of mine.

Lip and Cheek Stains have evolved so much though. New packaging, formulas, etc…where as before the market was lacking, now the market is saturated with all kinds of stains.

I think one of the main complaints about stains is the irony that they have such a long wear time on cheeks but go drier on lips and sometimes don’t wear as well.

The new Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain is testimony that hope is still alive for a lip stain that wears all day with a hydrating formula.

Take a look!
