I'm back :)
Without further rambling .. Let's get started with the review :)
The packing :The packaging feels out of the space luxurious !! black and gold screw on cap with the brand logo in red. OMG <3
The Glossy stains come with a special doe foot applicator - flat and pointy, and also very flexible -, that allows perfect application and control even on the lip line or the Cupid’s bow.
The applicator has enough give and it’s quite easy to scrape the sides of the vial, so no waste of product in sight.
The product :
The scent is the usual amazing, rose-y scent that all YSL lip products have, that reminds me a lot of Parisiènne eau de toilette. It lingers on the lips for a while, then it starts to softly fade after a couple of hours.
The texture is different from anything else I’ve ever tried: it’s light and thin and it doesn’t feel sticky at all. It’s actually quite comfortable to wear, moisturizing in a way, and lacks of all the unpleasant features of a stain, especially the slight stretch and the awful dryness that makes every little dry patch look ten times worse. The product doesn’t move towards fine lines or collect into the creases like too creamy glosses often do.
The gloss lasts 3 to 4 hours without eating and drinking carefully, then it gently wears off to reveal the stain underneath.
The stain it’s not completely matte and is pretty much everlasting with a little bit of fading in the middle of the lips.
When I wear it I get tons of comments on my lips :) even from strangers .. Weird but I don't care :)
Price :YSL Glossy stains retail for 27.50€/22.50£/32$ for 0.20 oz/6 ml and can be found online and in stores, at Sephora’s and every YSL suppliers, but keep in mind that some shades are exclusive to Sephora or some retailers like Nordstrom.
If you can afford the splurge, these are totally worthy: if I could buy only one product from the spring collections it would be one of these stains, that’s how good they are.
Have you tried it? Is there any shade that caught your attention?
