About The Product:

A revolutionary new lip product that combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long wear of a stain.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
-For natural shine, apply one coat onto the center of lips and brush towards the outer corners.
-For more coverage and sophistication, apply two coats using the outer curved side of the applicator, then dab on the formula generously over lips.
My Experience with YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain No 7 Corail Aquatique
I knew one of these days I had to get my hands on at least one YSL lip products. The brand itself and their products are too tempting to pass off. And also having used their famous crème blush in Red Agate(reviewed here) I was highly impressed . I read rave reviews of their lip products by Kulpreet and Rati on Imbb which made me decide to go and get this. After some swatching at the store I decided on the shade No 7 Corail Aquatique which looked like such a fun and summery color to me.
The packaging itself is so luxe with hints of gold which is signature to every YSL product. The glossy stains have a golden cap on top and the bottom half has a tiny peak of the shade inside which makes it easy to differentiate if you have many products from this range.
These glosses have a very unique petal shaped applicator which feels soft and smooth as velvet. I was surprised to find that it is also very flexible but still gives utmost control in application. The narrow tip on top helps reach the corners of the mouth easily without going outside the lip line. It doesn’t pick a lot of product in one go so you do have to dip your brush in, multiple times.
The gloss itself is very thin and runny in consistency but once it comes in contact with air and the lips, it transforms into the most unique texture which feels more like a gel. It feels highly comfortable on the lips and is not at all sticky or too slippery.
Though the color goes on opaque, you do need 2-3 coats to make the application look even. I find the best method to apply this is to apply a coat and let it settle for a few seconds and then apply another coat. This gives you the most flawless, streak free application.
The shade CorailAquatique is a beautiful peachy coral shade which will be flattering on most skin tones but particularly on those who are light- medium skin tone. It brightens up the face and gives it a youthful glow. Keep in mind the color does tend to deepen within a few minutes, so the color you see on the lips immediately after application may not be the true color which it settle down to. This shade is particularly suitable for spring-summer time. It contains some visible shimmer particles which cannot be felt at all and are not too visible unless looked at very closely.
It truly lives up to the claim of being a slossy “stain”. The staying power is pretty impressive. The glossy look easily stayed on me for 4 hours and after that the glossiness subsided but the stain of the color remains intact though not as prominent as when freshly applied. It easily survives through snacking and I have even gone through a whole meal with this not disappearing into oblivion. In total the staying power would be 5-6 hours on me.
It has a subtle fresh scent which disappears within a few minutes.
Overall Highly Impressed with this product. I will definitely recommend it.
