I’ve meaning to do this post since I bought the YSL glossy lip stains in my Hawaii haul! Click here to see my Hawaii haul-age.

These lip products are quite revolutionary- it has a high gloss finish but the long wearing properties of a lip stain. On application, the texture is thin but within a few minutes, the product starts to feel a bit thicker and ‘gummy’ on the lips (which I love! less slip and no feathering).

One should also note that these colours deepen when on the lips, they appear more vibrant than in the tube or in swatches. Also a big round of applause for the applicator, which can be described as an angular bristle doe foot, providing greater precision (no need for lipliners with these!)

I think it’s fair to say that I’ve engaged in love affair with YSL Glossy Stains. Below are lip swatches of the four colours I own, as well as full face pictures.

YSL Glossy Stain #15 Rose Vinyl: A cool toned, medium pink.

  1. Wow! Love the violet editon. Looks really good on you. What brand of foundation do you use? And highlights to recommend? Thanks~^^

    1. They’re awesome products! Definitely a standout from the past year. They last VERY well on my lips, the gloss hangs around for two hours and the stain remains through two meals!
