YSL Rouge Pur Couture Mat # 202 Rose Crazy Review

Hello Ladies,

Everytime I used to read a YSL lipstick review on IMBB, I said to myself “One day I will buy them”. Then I went on to prepare a lust list of YSL for myself. One day, I went to Shoppers Stop in my city and saw their counter and thought “Let that one day be today”. I went ahead and searched for my shortlisted ( with the help of IMBB, ofcourse) shades. But to my disappointment not a single one of my shortlisted shades was available. But now that I had made up my mind, I swatched the available shades and settled on this beauty.

Claims: The must have for the perfect matte lip look. Rich, creamy formula is infused with a velvet complex for a luxuriously smooth application, and jojoba oil for long lasting comfort. Intense color pigments for a vibrant touch of color that lasts

Price: – Rs.1850/- for 3.8g/0.13oz

Packaging: I will be honest here. Packaging was what attracted me to this beauty in the first place. The golden, sleek, rectangular packaging with beautifully placed YSL logo urges you to flaunt it and damn if I can resist doing just that. It comes in a beautiful gold mirrored cardboard box. It is a bold stare-at-me-all-day-long packaging and screams luxury.

My Experience with YSL Rouge Pur Couture Mat # 202 Rose Crazy

I will summarize my experience in just two words, amazingly awesome.

Colour: 202 Rose crazy as the name says is stunning pinkish red. It is a muted bold color, if that makes any sense to you. It will suit all skin tones and according to my limited knowledge, all Indian beauties will rock it.

Texture: Its texture is the second thing I love about it (the first being its packaging as I already said). Being a matte formula, I was apprehensive of the havoc it would create on my dry lips. But woohoo, the texture is creamy and glides like a dream. The finish is not exactly matte but settles into semi-matte look after application. It feels super-light and does not settle into fine lines. It does not bleed or feather too. It does not dry the lips at all, I mean, no pulling and tugging of lips, nada, nothing. Rather it keeps the lips hydrated (because of jojoba oil I guess).This, for me, is the best part of this luxurious lipstick. There is no smell at all too. I know you are not going to believe if I ramble on with all its good qualities but it is true.

Pigmentation: As with all other aspects, the pigmentation too lives upto its claim. It is highly pigmented. It goes opaque in one swipe. So beauties with pigmented lips can breathe a sigh of relief. You can add multiple swipes to give a more bold look to your lips.

Staying Power: The lipstick transfers a bit for a few minutes after application but that almost vanishes with time. It stays practically all day long though the color starts fading evenly after 3-4 hours. It even survives meals!! Even when it starts fading, it leaves a beautiful pinkish stain.

So, all in all, this has been a dream buy for me.
