YSL lets your lips do the talking

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A LevresThey say: Yves Saint Laurent has a new way to make up lips, and it’s so much better than other lip products you’ve tried. With the new Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres every woman can create her own style and look – this lip stain not only shines, it also lasts!

BeautySouthAfrica.com had this to say:

Zoe: Every girl who likes make-up will get excited and fall in love with this lip stain when you lay eyes on it (you can’t not). In a beautiful gold and black case, it’s sure to make any girl drool – well it sure did for me. If you drink lots of coffee/tea throughout the day and you find yourself always having to reapply coat after coat of gloss later, then Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres is a must have product for your lips. Not only did the colour last for about four hours, the shine was still there too. It didn’t feel sticky or leave strands of my hair sticking to my lips – a big bonus in my book!

Megan: I’ve never used a lip stain before and was a little hesitant to try the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres. What if I didn’t like how the colour appeared on my lips? What if the texture was horrible? What if it never came off? What if? What if? What if? But let me tell you, after wearing the glossy stain for a day, I’m hooked! The product glides on well with a super soft brush and maintains that just-applied look for hours afterwards. The stain is a thinner consistency than a lip gloss, which felt as if I was barely wearing it. On the first day I had to keep checking my compact to make sure it was visible, but soon stopped when after a chicken-mayo lunch date my lips were still stained Brun Cachemire. The taste took some getting used to, but I was really impressed with the non-sticky and cool texture of the Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres.

Available in 12 different shades at the RRSP of R365 from selected Edgars, Red Square and Stuttafords stores.

    I got this as a gift from NY and I love it! It’s got a funny texture, difficult to describe, almost waxy, which I love. It takes a few second to settle, so don’t touch immediately after application. Will definitely be purchasing a few other tones.
