Following my previous post discussing (this is starting to sound like a work email) the YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks, observe ladies – lip swatches!
I can’t fault the appearance and formula of these lovely lipsticks. YSL have got the lipsticks DOWN, just like Dior has the mascaras DOWN and Chanel has the lip glosses DOWN.
(By the way, what high end brands do you prefer for various products? I love YSL and Dior mascara, Dior for foundation and quints, YSL for lipstick and Chanel for face powder and lip gloss).
Firstly, Noir Laque:
This is very vampy and more of a deep plum than a black:
Not for everyday but passable as an evening shade?
This is very much rose as opposed to a RED, it’s pretty and pigmented. I must admit I rarely wear these kind of shades but I think it would be a nice alternative to full on red.
I love all orange based lipsticks, most of the time, and this is perfect. So bold, so retro!
Blanc, a creative shade:
I wouldn’t say this is utterly unwearable on it’s own – it’s sheer – but it is just a little cold on it’s own:
The nude Beige Tribute:
It is very nude, so nude that I forgot to do the face look but I am sure you can imagine 🙂 It’s a basic nude lipstick with a nice soft, texture.
So, would you buy any of these?
