YSL Rouge Vermillion Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick – Sindoor For Your Lips?

YSL Rouge Vermillion Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick

Hi Beauties,

As I was telling in my previous review of the Estee Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Red Tango (My first Estee Lauder lipstick); I had totally forgotten about it and was exclusively using (well, on most days at least) another lipstick which I had purchased along with it a few months back. Yes, I am indeed talking about the star of the show today…..and this one is my first from this brand as well. Well, I have been using it for a few months (as you can well see from the pictures of the bullet); so at last, today, I am reviewing this baby.

My Experience with YSL Rouge Vermillion Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick:

This was my first foray into Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks. There was a sale going on at the counter, where all Yves Saint Laurent color items were at a 15% discount….so I got it for less than the actual price. Yay…

The lipstick comes packaged in a gorgeous gold color box, with all information written on it. The lipstick case inside is heavy, purely golden in color; and looks extremely luxurious. Yes, this was indeed the most luxurious looking lipstick I had at that time.The lipstick bullet has a nice fruity fragrance to it. It is extremely creamy, and absolutely glides on to the lips. It does not tug on the lips, and does not sit on the lip lines. It does not feather or bleed, despite the creaminess; and delivers a surge of moisture every time you purse your lips. It feels very light and comfortable on the lips.


The shade Rouge Vermillion is described by the brand as a raspberry pink; but I found it to have a slight warm tinge (rather than a blue toned one). That way, it looks a very wearable shade of pinkish red on yellow undertone skin types. It will look extremely good on all skin tones; and will immediately brighten your face. The pigmentation of this lipstick is absolutely top notch. It delivers almost full pigmentation in one swipe itself; so despite regular use, you will find that it lasts a long time. The lipstick has a nice sheen to it, which neither looks glossy, nor semi matte. It is extremely smooth and creamy in texture.

It stays on my lips for almost 5-6 hours, with minimal snacks in between. However, one major meal may wipe it off, leaving behind a lovely stain which stays on and on. I find that I have to reapply it every 5-6 hourly, or after every meal, but the formula is such…that replying it is never a hardship for me.
