The YSL Beauty Rouge Pur Couture lip colour ranges spring to mind, whenever someone asks me to recommend a long-wearing lipstick or a lasting lipstain.
I’ve happily converted a healthy handful of ladies to the brand: My mother and my mother-in-law, as well as several close friends, now own a nifty selection of Rouge Pur Couture pieces; even a few acquaintances to whom I’d mentioned the brand have been convinced to try them.
They make ideal gifts for women who appreciate colour, and I’m delighted when beauty buddies send me messages of thanks with regard to my picks. I still get a thrill every time I see someone flashing a YSL lip tube: Just yesterday, I was tempted to exclaim when a stranger, with whom I was sharing a table at lunch, whipped out a YSL lipstick in front of me. #truestory 😍
In that same vein, I’d like to introduce some of my faves to you, and give you an opportunity to win these lovelies.
Part of their allure is no doubt attributed to the brand’s sophisticated image and star endorsement. Pictured above are four prominent Korean celebrities who have been featured in K-mag High Cut, each wearing a different YSL Beauty Rouge Pur Couture product.
Clockwise, from top-left:
- Han Ye Seul (Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain in № 11 Rouge Gouache)
- Yoon Eun Hye (Rouge Pur Couture in № 65 Orange Ardent)
- Sulli (Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain Pop Water in № 205 Pink Rain)
- Jung Ryeo Won (Rouge Pur Couture The Mats in № 201 Orange Imagine)
A notable kamsahamnida to Jun Ji Hyun too for propelling Rouge Pur Couture in№ 52 Rosy Coral to vertiginous hallyu heights, though she apparently never wore it.
Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Rouge Pur Couture Dazzling Lights Edition in № 01 Le Rouge and № 19 Le Fuchsia
In just one stroke, luxurious, rich color dresses the lips with intense hydration and antioxidant care. In a signature couture jewel-like packaging, Rouge Pur Couture delivers the promise of edgy style and ultimate feminine strength.
This almost-indelible range not only offers superb colour payoff, it also sits comfortably on the lips. Up for this giveaway are two limited-edition pieces from the Dazzling Lights collection marked with bursts of festive fireworks.
Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Rouge Pur Couture The Mats in № 220 Crazy Tangerine and № 221 Rose Ink
Heroic, forbidden, passionate, seductive, scandalous, the iconic YSL lipstick is declined in rock, radiant matte shades with Rouge Pur Couture The Mats. Its “stretch-leather” texture espouses and adjusts to the lips, ensuring a matte, sensually sleek finish and colour fidelity for 6 hours.
The first lipstick that I bought and loved from the brand came from this range. The incredibly-smooth matte texture has a non-drying, velvety softness that complements the intense colour.
Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Vernis à Lèvres in № 46 Rouge Fusain/Sfumato and № 50 Encre Nude
Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long-wear of a stain for a truly innovative lip product. A lightweight texture that immediately melts onto lips.
The one that started it all, this range of luscious lipglosses was the forerunner of lightweight + long-wearing lipstains that impart a refreshing sensation.
Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Vernis à Lèvres Pop Water in № 217 Red Spray and № 218 Orange Mist
Vernis À Lèvres Pop Water offers intense but sheer colour balanced with a light, watery intensity…Its watery brilliance stays true on the lips without drying out, or losing its impact. Lips feel supple and comfortable.
These hydrating glosses might have a translucency to them but there is some depth in their juicy payoff. You’ll be glad to know that they apply evenly too.
Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Tatouage Couture Matte Stain in № 02 Blood Orange Pact and № 09 Grenat No-Rules
Intense colours that are here to stay, with a naked lip feel. Inky, cool and more matte than ever before. Tatouage Couture Matte Stain reinvents the tattoo trend with an ultra-luxe formula made for rebellious lips only. High pigmentation matte.
Despite their inky richness, these #heretostay matte stains have a feather-light texture and feel like a whisper on the lips. I love the patented bevelled applicator whose precise edges contour the lips effortlessly, minimising mistakes. Lightweight and lasting, they also make an excellent primer for other lipsticks.
