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

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.

I’m such a sucker for cheek gels and stains when the warmer weather hits. Granted we’re still in January and I’m still waiting for some hard New York cold but so far its been quite mild around here so I”m getting an early start on Spring and Yves Saint Laurent Voile de Blush Gel Blush may be added to my Spring beauty blush stash.

Yves Saint Laurent Jardin de Minuit Fall 2011

If blues or bolder shades are trending for Fall 2011, I’m so safe! I can’t seem to pull off blue as well as I used to lately due to aging eyes so I’m foreseeing a considerable savings in my makeup wardrobe fund if this keeps up!

Yay! Savings for Holiday 2011 Collections!

Wait, isn’t it Summer? Why am I even worried about this so soon?

Anyway, jump for the delicious images of Yves Saint Laurent Jardin de Minuit for Fall 2011.
