You all know by now how much I love both a YSL lip and a coral lip, so it’s fair to say that today’s lipstick is a match made in heaven. I’ve wanted to try out the YSL Tatouage Couture range since it was released back in September, and now that I’ve finally had the chance, I’m not disappointed.
YSL make the most incredible lipsticks; some of my all time favourites are from YSL and I adore every single one of them so needless to say, I wasn’t surprised to find that I loved this today too.
Unlike their other lipsticks that I’ve tried, this lippy is a matte stain in the very truest sense of the word. It applies very similarly to their vinyl liquid lip cream, and has the same creamy texture, only once dried in, gives the full effect of a matte lip.
As mentioned, the formula is very creamy with the same delicious scent that all YSL lippies have. The pigment is strong and flawless, and the colour pay off is excellent too.
The matte finish does make it a little less hydrating than other YSL lipsticks but that’s to be expected from a lip stain. I did find myself preferring the moisturising element that you get from the vinyl lip creams or regular lipsticks, but I still loved the colour and finish nonetheless.
The colour itself is a salmon coral rather than an orange coral, but I loved it as I’m sure you’ve already guessed! And, what’s more, it’s a perfect day-to-night shade for any time of year.
We were out tonight for a friend’s 40th birthday celebration and I loved how this worked equally as well on out and about during the day, as well as for a night out on the tiles tonight. What’s more, the stain element means the staying power is excellent so I didn’t need to worry about reapplying it during the evening.
Of course as with any brand, there are some lipsticks I prefer more than others, but this one is definitely going up there with my current YSL favourites. It’s smooth, creamy and gorgeously luxurious – I literally didn’t want to take it off!
Have you ever tried a YSL lipstick?
