TMG Faves: YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain…

Very rarely do you see me shout from the rooftops about a lip color but I am shouting now!!! This is my favorite thing ever, a gloss and a stain mixed together!  I have been using stains under glosses for YEARS and this formula nails it nails it nails it.  Now the only drawback for some may be the price but since this is SO long wearing, I feel like you get what you pay for.  YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain is lightweight, with bold colors and absolutely comfortable to wear.  It lasts and lasts and lasts,  I wore it all weekend when I was speaking at The Makeup Show in NYC.  I have three shades that I rotated…No. 3 Brun Cachemire (pretty chocolate brown), No. 5 Rouge Vintage (softer pinkish rose) and what I am wearing in the photo below with my BBS (beauty blogging sister!) Felicia Walker Benson of This That Beauty.  That one is called No. 10 Rouge Philtre (gorgeous true blueish red).  So many shades to choose from but at $32 a pop, I had to draw the line at three (for now anyway….LOL). å

Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres. The answer for women who want it all. Those who refuse to compromise. Women who want to have lips infused with the most gorgeous colors and a totally new kind of shine. To reveal the true beauty of their lips with sublime sophistication
and transparency.

Skin-deep color and a wet look that lasts and lasts. Not exactly lipstick, not exactly gloss, and so much more than a simple lip stain, Yves Saint Laurent is a whole new way to make up lips.

A technological breakthrough, Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres is a must-have with an exceptional hold. Fresh and light, the texture does not run, streak or fade. Lips are infused with color. The pleasure is reinforced by an extraordinary feeling of comfort.
