Velvet lips: YSL Beauty Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream Liquid Lipstick

You guys know I love a good matte liquid lipstick.  I love the colour payoff, the longevity, and the way it makes my lips look. The thing I don’t like? The way my lips feel.

If you are like me and love a good matte liquid lipstick but hate the dry feeling, then you may want to look into YSL Beauty’s new Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream lipsticks (C$49).

Available in 12 shades, these liquid lipsticks are a matte lip stain with a velvet finish that will coat your lips in rich colour, last all day, and feel comfortable to wear.

These apply via a unique applicator which is square in shape and fits the shape of your lips comfortably thanks to its sharp edge.  The formula is very comfortable and glides on the lips, staying on all day and giving you a full-coverage finish.  This applies colour in one stroke and truthfully, feels very luxe. The product is nice on the lips thanks to the emollient oil cream base in the formula. Sure, at $49, they are pricey for a lipstick, but I can tell you that they definitely feel like a very expensive product.

YSL sent me four shades to try out, three reds and a nude. I do have to say that the nude isn’t really something that I would call a nude, as it still has a more pink/red undertone, but I think that if you have a deeper skin tone than I do, then it would look more like a nude.

Although I don’t wear a lot of reds, I actually did quite enjoy how these looked on. The colour is very much a velvet texture, both in feel and look.  They went on very creamy and stayed creamy throughout the day. As such, I would definitely recommend these.

Overall, I really loved these YSL lipsticks. As I’ve said in the past, I’ve always had a thing for their lipsticks in general, so I knew that these would be a something that I would enjoy from the get-go.  The only thing is I wished that they had more of a colour range. I mean, do we really need 12 different shades of reds? How about a bright pink? A true nude? A purple? A pinky-nude?  I feel like brands really focus their shade range on reds and truthfully, even when I was swatching these, I felt like there wasn’t much difference between the colours.

If you are looking for a comfortable matte liquid lipstick, then I would take a look into these. Again, they are pricey, but the quality is there for these and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with the result you get from wearing them.

Have you tried any of YSL’s Tatouage Couture Velvet Creme lipsticks?
