Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks (Gold Attraction Edition)

Yves Saint Laurent's iconic Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks are now available in a limited-edition matte black packaging with a glittery YSL logo! There are seven shades to choose from, ranging from a soft rosy nude to a daring vivid coral. The formula offers rich color in just one stroke while natural extracts provide intense hydration.

The formula is very creamy! These lipsticks glide on my lips like butter, but they aren't too oily either. I usually prefer a slightly thicker consistency, as it makes it less likely to feather around the mouth or gather into lip lines. But I like how lightweight AND hydrating the Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks feel on my lips!

I would recommend using a lip liner though, especially with the darker shades. I noticed that the color 01 Le Rouge feathers past my lip line after only an hour, so using a lip pencil is necessary for me.

These Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks are strongly scented, but the smell doesn't linger too long.

01 Le Rouge is extremely pigmented and completely opaque on the lips, while 52 Rouge Rose is still very pigmented but slightly sheerer. The color 70 Le Nude is more translucent but nicely pigmented.

On me, coral lipsticks tend to gather into fine lines, and the shade 52 Rouge Rose is no exception. The color is even upon application, but after a few minutes it looks super streaky on me. And it emphasizes dry skin like crazy, so exfoliating your lips is key with this one!

The color 70 Le Nu is a bit streaky on my lips too, but it's not very noticeable and it wears much better than 52 Rouge Rose. I adore this shade, it's a great daytime nude!

As for the lasting power, the shade 01 Le Rouge wore well for about 6 hours (with a lip liner to prevent bleeding), while 52 Rouge Rose lasted 5 hours on me, and 70 Le Nu wore well for a little less than 4 hours.
