YSL Glossy Lip Stain Swatches & Mini Review


<3 <3 <3 <3 <3!! Oh my gosh! I am in LOVE with this stuff! I can not believe the lasting power, the vibrancy of the colour and just how beautiful the product is. The YSL Glossy Stain is a relatively new product and it took me awhile to get it because I was waiting for it to be available on Strawberrynet, but I ended up getting a voucher from work and so I splurged! I was meant to only get one as they are $50 here in Australia, and the voucher for for $50 but I couldn't help myself! 

I got the shades #9 & #15, one is a vibrant true red (definitely one of my favourite reds now!) and the other is a wearable, muted down blue based pink.
  
Pros:
  • Amazing colours
  • Long lasting
  • Very comfortable and light on the lips - I know some people have said that it was sticky but to be honest, I don't find it that sticky and sometimes I forget that it's on my lips. It actually feels very watery when it is first applied which was a bit odd.
  • Very pigmented - The swatches below are 1 swipe of the product. 
  • The packaging is to die for!
  • Stays VERY glossy which I wasn't expecting
  • Love the application wand
Cons:
  • Expensive - It is available at any YSL counter but it is $50 a pop
  • My lips may be a little sensitive to this because sometimes I get a weird drying feeling the day after if I use it a few days in a row

 (L-R (in sunlight): #9, #15)

 (L-R: #9, #15)


I can not rave about this product enough and I'm definitely going to buy some more shades when it starts being available on Strawberrynet because these are the bomb!!


Hope you're having a great day ladies!

  6. Beautiful colours, they are as vibrant as you described! It is so pricy however, but i guess you are paying for amazing quality so in that sense it is completely worth it :)

  16. ahhhh, stop, you're making me so jealous! I really really love the concept of these!!! I do agree with you though that they are quite expensive, I just splurged on two rouge voluptes, I can't justify another just yet...:(. I bet they would look gorgeous on you!
