This review has been long over due, I got this during the beginning of summer if I remember correctly. And the first thing that this reminds me of is the hibiscus flower. I am not sure why though, the color, the fragrance maybe? But nevertheless, I have lost myself to the YSL Rouge pur couture glossy lip stain, a brilliant product IMO.
The shade I have is called Corail Fauve, and as the name suggests it is a coral shade. But trust me when I say this can be the perfect transitional color for autumn as well. It has strong hues of rosy pink in it that makes it a perfect early autumn shade too. I love how bright and fresh it looks and has a pretty good color pay off, that is right in between sheer and opaque. But it is the unique formula that makes it stand out and is something that I have never tried before. It applies as a wet stain and feels a bit watery. But before you think it is going to slide and stick, it dries up into a velvety smooth gloss on the lips and stays there without moving for at least a good four to five hours. I love how soft and satiny it feels that I look forward to wearing it. It is very light on the lips and doesn't stick one bit which is a major plus for me.
Overall, I am bloody impressed with this product, seriously one of the best I 've seen so far in terms of both the color range and the formula. It is expensive, but it is a lovely treat to give yourself, and I can assure you wont regret it. Look at that packaging, how more beautiful and elegant can it be? I think Fuschsia Dore and Rouge Gouache would be perfect shades for the autumn.
Today is diwali in India, the festival of lights! So a happy diwali to all my Indian friends and also to anyone who is reading this! Bright & Beautiful things have no cultural boundaries, right? :)
