Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain - Review

Happy Friday beauties!  Today is my last day of work till the New Year woohooo!!!!

Today I'm going to discuss the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levris Glossy Stain.  Phew, that's a long name!  I call it my YSL Glossy Stain.  :)

This is a stain but unlike most stains it is not the least bit drying.  According to Sephora, this product "combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long wear of a stain".




I constantly lick and bite my lips so lip products don't last very long on me.  This stain is the longest wearing lip product that I have ever owned.  I have this in the color 7 Corail Aquatique which is coral-ish which I think is nice for my coloring.  You can see below that unlike most stains, it is so shiny, it almost looks like a gloss!

If you were thinking about adding this to your makeup arsenal I'd say go try it out at Sephora or a YSL counter.  What I do to test my lippie purchases is try it out, then leave and finish my mall activities and see how the lip product has held up and then make my decision.   This product is expensive at $34 but it's worth it in my opinion because it lasts so long on me.

I haven't read too many other blog reviews on this so let me know if you have it and what you think or if you are planning to get it!  Have a great day and weekend everyone!

  1. That's a great tip when not sure of purchasing a lip product I like to test it for a bit as well, well, when they are pricier products anyway.

    1. Yes, I always do that if I want to purchase something expensive and especially if it claims to be long-wearing! Thanks for visiting!

  3. Ooh, that is glossy! That's a really clever tip... I also have a tendency to rub/bite my lips so most lip products don't last as long as they should on me either. :/

  4. I'm constantly licking and biting my lips too, I hate that habit!! Lip colors rarely last on me because of that, ugh!!

    This is such a lovely shade, and I'm glad to hear it works well on you!

  7. I've wanted one of these for so long but the price tag scares me! I picked up one of the L'Oreal Lip Stains from Ulta because I heard they were fairly similar. I haven't tried the YSL one before, but so far I'm loving the L'Oreal one! I'd definitely recommend trying them out because it's a third of the YSL price.

  9. we love any type of lip stain, and they're particularly perfect for this time of year when you're drinking, eating and dancing the night away!! We love Rimmel's Apocalips and Loreal's Carisse stains if anyone's looking for cheaper alternatives! This shade look amazing on you by the way! Great review:)

  10. I love the YSL Glossy Stains! I have this colour too - I have been trying to choose another one but can't find a colour I love more than this. They wear so well - even glossy after eating!! Have you tried the L'Oreal dupes (the glamshine stains at least that's what they are called in the UK) yet? I see people have already recommended them. They are good, but not as opaque as this one - worth a go though!
