You know how much I love a nude lip product! Well, YSL have decided that nude doesn’t stop at beige. These goodies are definitely not boring! They have launched Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres or Rebel Nude Lipsticks to us. 

When I first saw the packaging I assumed this was a gloss. Wrong. It does go on quite creamy but it dries to a stain with a sheen. It’s quite unusual and not like any lip product I have tried to so far. Usually I find stains too intense and too drying, that is not the case with this gem.

Here’s how it looks on my sisters lips in natural daylight…

The photo above taken with flash over-exaggerates the iridescence. You can see a slight hint of it in natural light which is very flattering. I had to try a variety of lighting set ups and flash to show it to the extreme so don’t be scared of it :) It’s still natural.

They are made with a new formula and texture which as a I mentioned is unique. There is a brush instead of a doe foot applictaor which is a bonus for me. It’s far easier to apply this way. It feels fresh on the lips too. The best thing is that they have hold but they aren’t sticky!

One slick gives a natural colour and a little transparency. You can wait 20 seconds and apply a second coat which is what you see in the swatch pictures. You can lightly blend with your fingertip to tone down the effect if you wish. I do this last step with all glosses. I like a slightly smooshed look rather than super polished – I use the word ‘smooshed’ since it looks like someone has just kissed you :) Something YSL recommend is to mix & match shades, that’s not something I ever thought of doing, it could also get very expensive! Too rich for my blood I’m afraid.

The packaging is very beautiful. I love that you can see the shade through the tube. Also the brush is precise and delivers the right amount of product, without waste.

Choosing the right nude: There is one to suit every woman. No. 103 Pink No Tabboo, No.4 Fuchsia Tomboy and No.108 Violine Out of Control are the most intense. No.101 Nude Provocateur, No 106 Beige Anarchist and No.107 Naughty Mauve are the most transparent. There are also two orangey tones for ladies with fair skin – No.102 Corail Mutin and No.105 Corail Hold Up.

It’s rare for a product to surprise me but this one sure has. They cost €33 each so these bad boys are for a payday treat!

Any fans?
