My Experience with YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain Pop Water
I am not a huge gloss wearer but once in a while I pick up a nice shade and use it every now and then. Juicy Peach 207 is a lovely peach color. It is a very summery shade and in general nice everyday color.
Glossy Stain Pop Water comes packed in this nice little black tube with golden twist up applicator. There is a little transparent rectangle designed on both sides of the tube for you to see the color. The applicator is in little heart shape and it quite good quality. The packaging is exactly the same as YSL Glossy Stains. It is compact, lightweight and easy to carry around.
I took a while to really understand how this gloss was working. The formula is kind of new to me. It goes on watery and sheer on the lips, then it kind of thickens up a bit and turns into a lovely creamy gel like texture. Even the color intensifies in a few seconds. I started with a disappointed feel to it considering how sheer it goes and it turned into a ‘wow’ when I realised what was actually happening. 😀 You have to apply 2-3 layers to build up to a nice bright intensity. The first layer goes on light and sheer and almost feels like a moisturising balm. You wait for a few seconds to apply the next layer and the color starts looking a bit brighter. And you can layer it up again to make it look brighter. I think you can totally play with the brightness depending on your preference. That said, since it is a stain kind of a product don’t expect it to become a full on a opaque lip color. Some of the original lip color always shows through when worn alone. If you have very pigmented lips you could wear a lip liner underneath.
It feels sooooooo nice and light on lips. It is one of its kind gloss that almost feels nothing on lips. Zero stickiness. It goes on evenly on lips and feels hydrating. It keeps lips moisturised for hours. It neither feathers, nor settles in fine lines. And it smells soo nice- fresh and fruity. I almost every time take a sniff at the applicator before applying it. 😛
What was most surprising was the staying power. I was not expecting it to last through a coffee, forget about a full meal. It just stayed though all my snacking and coffee and water drinking for more than 4 hours. I absolllutely loved it! It also leaves a light stain of color behind for next hour or so.
This product is a surprise love for me. I was not expecting a gloss to be so exceptional. Absolutely love it and recommend it.
