Right off, this product is on a whole other level.  I’m not even kidding, you guys.  Yves Saint Laurent (hereby referred to as YSL) Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain is everything it says and more.  I only picked up one shade (because, let’s be honest, what lip stain this deep actually STAYS this deep) in 20 Rouge Enamel, but am definitely picking up a few more.

What the Sephora website has to say about Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain:

What it is:
A revolutionary new lip product that combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long-wear of a stain.

What it does:
Coat your lips with this lip color that offers a lightweight texture, which immediately melts onto lips. Glossy Stain delivers intense glossy color for an extremely long-lasting shine.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Petrochemicals
– Phthalates
– GMOs
– Triclosan

What else you need to know:
The applicator’s unique slanted tip and short soft bristles allow for flawless application with perfect precision.

Rouge Enamel is a warm red, with just a bit of shimmer.  The pigment is fabulous on this and super glossy.  At first, as it’s put on, it has that drying feeling of a stain, but then it miraculously gets okay and feels good!  I did layer the color on a few times, but the pigment is still nice (though not as deep) with just one coat.

The applicator is a sponge, but not in any shape I’m used to using.  Luckily, it’s easy to maneuver and the pointed end helps to make application more precise.

Scent-wise, when I sniffed the swatch, it smelled like roses and cinnamon.  It was a little bizarre, but on the lips I can’t smell much of anything.  Perhaps a very faint odor of the rose… but seriously, I’m extremely sensitive to smells and this isn’t offensive.

This stain didn’t budge through a ridiculously messy dinner of pancakes smothered in syrup, greasy bacon, and orange juice (as well as hours before and after).  I was a bit worried because a slight smudge appeared on my glass (dang) but I just peeped in the mirror and it’s ALL STILL THERE!  On the lips!  Like it’s home!  The only con is that after you eat it feels a bit sticky and loses a bit of it’s shine, but that is easily remedied by adding a dab of your favorite lip conditioner (I like MAC Viva Glam Ricky).

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain retails for $32.00 and is available at Sephora as well as at your local YSL counter.
