YSL Rouge Roxanne Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick Review, Swatches

YSL Rouge Roxanne Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick

Hi Beauties,

I am an Orange Hesitant. I do-not do pure orange lipsticks very well. I feel, they just don’t suit me. I don’t go for out and out orange or coral shades. However, a twist to the coral is always welcome to me…and I love it. Today, I will be reviewing another lipstick from my stash. This is my second YSL lipstick. While the first YSL lipstick (Rouge Vermillion) was purchased keeping in mind the brand; this lipstick was bought purely for this shade (since I am already in love with the brand). This was bought a month back…after seeing some really perfect orange lipstick shades on IMBB, and lusting after a muted orange in my life as well. Least to say, every Orange lip color lover and hesitant is going to fall in love with this shade. It is an absolutely perfect shade.

My Experience YSL Rouge Roxanne Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick:

YSL Rouge Pur Couturelipsticks; which are just “pure color”…are really my most loved lipsticks till date. They epitomise everything which a lipstick should be…and more. There is nothing in here not to love about this range. It is just….sheer luxury and pure love.

The lipstick comes in a sleek, golden colored, rectangular metallic casing, wrapped inside a similar looking box packaging. All the details are mentioned on the box. There is, however, no window provided, for easy identification of shades. Not a big issue for me.The bullet looks extremely creamy and sleek. It has a mild fruity fragrance, which is actually quite pleasing to the nose……and does not stay long. The lipstick has a creamy and moisturising texture. It glides upon the lips, banishes all the lip lines, and moisturises the lips. It does feel a bit slippery on the lips…but that is not a con in my opinion.
The shade is a beautiful mixture of shades. I cannot, till now express what shade it is. It seems all a mixture of red with brown with coral…with underlying hints of pink and gold. You see my problem here…it seems all the colors are there in this lipstick…and looks different in different lights and on different skin tones. It is a warm-toned shade definitely. The orange in this shade, somehow, seems more enhanced on warm Indian skin tones.
The pigmentation is also superb, as with all other lipsticks in this range. It gives complete opaque color in one swipe only. It stays on without meals for 5-6 hours on my lips…with meals…it leaves a lovely stain on the lips. On my lips, the lipstick does not bleed or feather at all.I can almost pledge my undying love for this range….and for this lipstick, which I bought just for this unique shade. I am not a very big fan of pure orange lipsticks…but orange is such a beautiful shade…I really needed this lipstick in my stash.
