Ah yes, YSL lipsticks.. some of my all-time favourites.
No matter what the colour is, my heart will always skip a beat when I see a YSL lipstick show up at my door. I’ve used a few of their formulas over the year and have always really appreciated the quality of the formula and the intricate details of the packaging as a whole. Plus, the fact that it’s YSL is a huge selling feature for me. I love any beauty brand that is put out by a luxury couture house (#bougie).
Anyways, I have tried YSL Beauty’s Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks in the past, of which they have a few different lines in this formula. For fall 2020, they have just released a new version to add to the line up.
The YSL Rouge Pur Couture Slim Glow Matte (C$50) is a long-lasting lipstick that comes in a unique slim square stick. The odd shape of the lipstick is actually convenient since it is designed to hug the natural curve of your lips. This lipstick delivers pigmented colour in a matte finish that is lightweight and comfortable.
Available in 12 shades, this lipstick contains light-reflecting pearls and mallow flower extracts from the YSL Beauty Ourika Garden (so fancy!). YSL sent me five shades to try out, two reds, a pink, a nude, and a brown. The shade range all lean on the darker side of things and is a rich and deep colour that looks very mature. I do find these to be matte in finish and the texture of them are creamy and long-wearing with a opaque wash of colour.
Overall I really like these and they are definitely a luxe treat. I get that $50 for a lipstick is a lot of money, especially in a pandemic, but if you are looking to treat yourself then these would definitely fit the bill. The casing is also incredibly luxe with the matte black packaging and rose gold lid.
Compared to the other Rouge Pur Couture formulas out there I would say that this version is my new favourite and I expect to get a lot of wear out of them this fall (for when I actually go out and apply makeup).
Have you tried any of the new YSL Rouge Pur Couture Slim Glow Matte?
