I am obsessed with YSL lipsticks. The formula is hands-down one of my favourite lipstick formulas out there. YSL lipsticks feel comfortable on the lips, are nicely pigmented, and leave a beautiful stain behind that doesn’t make your lips look flat or flat after the lipstick has worn off. The shade that I will be reviewing today #52 Rosy Coral/Rouge Rose and it’s one of the best-selling shades from the range and it’s actually hard to get hands on this particular shade.
What it is: Adorn your lips in Yves Saint Laurent with Rouge Pur Couture, a new generation of emblematic colors.
What it does: It’s formulated with a luminous satin texture and is presented in a modern golden case, designed by Yves Saint Laurent Couture Creative Director Stefano Pilati, for the ultimate in luxury and style. Hydrospheres and natural extracts provide all-day comfort and hydration. Winner of Allure magazine’s ‘Best of Beauty’ Award for Best Bright Lipstick shade No. 19, 2016.
My Experience with Yves Saint Laurent 52 Rosy Coral/Rouge Rose Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick:
The packaging is absolutely stunning! This lipstick comes in a gold case which feels very high end. The gold tube with black detailing and black YSL logo looks so luxe. It’s heavy, steady, and feels absolutely luxurious. The bullet of the lipstick has YSL logo engraved on it. The shade number is printed at the bottom of the tube.
This lipstick has the typical YSL fruity-flowery scent and the scent doesn’t even fade away soon.
“Rosy Coral/Rouge Rose” is a coral pink shade and it’s a very unique color. It would be perfect for spring and summer days. I think this shade will suit fair to medium skin tones. Even on my medium skin tone, it makes me look so tanned, so I prefer mixing this with other shades or wearing it as a stain.
It is very pigmented and offers medium coverage in a single swipe. This also doesn’t bleed or feather around my lips. It belongs to satin finish and that makes it very comfortable to wear on the lips. It won’t accentuate dry patches and doesn’t even settle into fine lines of the lips.
Because of its creamy texture, it does not survive meals. It does fade evenly and leaves a lovely stain behind. The staying power is 3 to 4 hours on my lips.
Pros of Yves Saint Laurent 52 Rosy Coral/Rouge Rose Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick:
- The formula is very comfortable to wear. It’s hydrating and does not accentuate any dry patches.
- Fades evenly and leaves a beautiful stain behind.
- Beautiful colour range, there is something for everyone.
- Unique shade.
- Pretty long lasting considering it’s a stain finish formula. It leaves a stain behind which won’t leave your lips looking flat.
