While I am trying to reform my ways and buy much less lip gloss I did have to indulge in the new YSL gloss I've been hearing about. It's called Rouge pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres, the last part roughly translated is "polish for lips". Vernis is typically the word used on nail polish bottles, therefore it is to be noted that this is not truly a lip gloss. As the makeup artist at Neimans explained to me, the product is really more like a lipstick that feels like a gloss (and is applied with a wand) but stays like a stain. Kind of crazy, right?
Well it's all true. My lips were glossy to begin with but when that faded (as all glosses do), it still felt creamy, like a lipstick. BUT hours later, the color was still perfect. Thus, a stain. I am officially deeming this the perfect lip product (let's go with product, because gloss doesn't quite cut it) for going out. I hate when you pick a stand-out color and then have to keep re-applying all through the night. Not with this.
However, I also recommend that you don't hastily re-apply while walking or stopped at a traffic light. Be very careful with the application because wherever it goes, it's staying.
I'm using #14 Fuchsia Doré - if you're going to be bold, go all the way right?
