Unlike the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte (which I have mixed feelings about..), I love this Glossy Stain!
I think I love everything about it except for the $32 price tag.
The color of my choice, Violet Edition is a perfect dark purple red.
(I might have just found my "Movie Star" lippie! ;o)
Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE PUR COUTURE Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain
Violet Edition (1)
It comes with a fuzzy applicator with a unique shape.
I think this works very cleverly to distribute the color evenly on lips.
It feels quite watery and cool on contact.
It does leave a nice stain.
What I love the most about this lippie is its perfect balance between the moisturizing finish and the longevity.
It sets pretty quickly but still gives me time to work with it, and after a careful blotting I find it stays on very well without drying out my lips.
Thanks to the shiny moisturizing finish, it does not accentuate the dry spots on lips and can be easily worn even on those "bad lips days".
I also love that I can control the color intensity quite easily.
