As I mentioned in the previous post I wanted to tell you more about the make-up I used for the "Tiger Safari" outfit. I used the Kiehl's Marvelous Mineral Mascara in Black that gives your lashes a natural but still voluminous look (also in this post) and no eyeshadow, as I wanted the focus to be on the lips. And that's what this post is really about: The YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stains. They are real "Love The Fabulous"-material!
This glossy stain definitley lasts longer on the lips than a gloss or lipstick and the colour looks richer and more dramatic. The texture is creamy, but you feel that it has something in common with a lip stain as it is much thicker and less smudgy. I prefer applying more layers as it creates a more intense look and really makes the colour pop. I always wait for the first layer to settle and then add more until I reach the intensity I want. The gloss smells floral but subtle.
I love dark lip colours, but I am always afraid they will end up somewhere in my face other than on my lips. With this one I finally dare to wear red and dark berry shades. It still leaves stains on glasses or wherever you put your mouth on. But that's fine. I also wanted to try a lighter shade and opted for the pink one. I think it is hard to get this seductive shade of pink with a normal gloss. Well, you might reach that point, but your lips will look like the ones from Elise Elliot in 'First Wives Club' after she had one too many lip jobs. But don't get me wrong, I love a soft, glossy touch on my lips. But this time I wanted an intensive pink.
I got this fabulous product in shades No. 01 (Violet Édition), No. 09 (Rouge Laqué) and No. 15 (Rose Vinyl). You can see me wearing all three colours in the following images.
Have you tried this product yet? And what colour did you get? I'd love to hear!!
