I have heard really good stuff about YSL’s Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte lip stains and I wanted to try one myself too. The shade that I picked up recently from the above-mentioned range is “1 Rouge Tatouage.”
A lightweight lip stain with a revolutionary formula for ultra-matte, high-impact color and a lightweight, naked-lip feel. This formula gives lips matte tattoo-like color that is lightweight and non-drying, making it ultra-comfortable to wear. The high-pigment color dries instantly, stays fresh, and moves with your lips for up to eight hours of wear. The exclusive liner-like applicator allows for precision outlining and filling in—creating perfectly defined lips every time. The color never feathers or spills over the lip line.
My Experience with YSL Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain 1 Rouge Tatouage:
YSL Tatouage comes housed in a frosted, glass-looking bottle with a golden screw cap with the YSL logo on it. The most unique part about tatouage is the applicator. The applicator wand has a slant cut with the YSL logo on both sides and is supposed to make the application process easy. Like other YSL products, there is no shade name mentioned on the bottom of the tube, there’s only a number.
YSL Tatouage in #1 is a vibrant red color with a slightly pink undertone. The consistency is quite liquid-y and it’s not as pigmented as other average liquid lipsticks out there. As the name suggests, it’s actually a stain.
It has the usual YSL fruity scent which lasts only for a few minutes after application. Honestly, the unique shape of the applicator makes it difficult for me to apply and keep the color within the lines. YSL tatouage lip stain also needs two layers for the color to build up since it’s not saturated enough.
It takes hardly 5 seconds to dry down, but once it completely dries down, it’s not going to go anywhere whether you drink or eat. It dries down to a matte finish. It’s not transferproof exactly, but I barely notice any transfer once the color dries down.
I do not see any feathering on me, but some people might feel that since the stain is quite liquid-y. This lip stain sits comfortably on my lips throughout the day without drying out my lips. It also feels lightweight on the lips. I get more than 10 hours of wear time, even with eating and drinking. It does fade a little but the stain remains on the lips for a very long time.
Pros of YSL Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain 1 Rouge Tatouage:
- There are a variety of shades to choose from.
- Comfortable on the lips.
- Not drying on the lips.
- Lasts really for a long time even after eating and drinking.
- Unique applicator.
Cons of YSL Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain 1 Rouge Tatouage:
- I have a hard time with this applicator.
- Not highly pigmented, a couple of swipes are needed to build the color.
