I’ve been meaning to do this review for a while as I took the photos ages ago! Finally, here is a review on a few different shades of YSL’s Glossy Stain.
P.S Did anyone seen the celebrity portraits in this issue of Vanity Fair? Stunning.
– The Look –
The look this product creates on your lips is fantastic. You can go one swipe for a touch of colour or you can build it with a few swipes for a bolder look. These glosses make your lips look fabulous and oh so kissable. As for the packaging, if YSL has something down its packaging, I love that it looks luxurious but still fun, and that slice of colour is my favourite!
– The Function –
I LOVE that these glosses don’t get sticky. Applying it the first couple times can be a little tricky with that new wand because it isn’t like a usual lip gloss wand. But it totally has its upsides and once you master your own technique when using it you are one step away from luscious lips. The staying power is pretty great, if you’re going for a bold look for the whole night you will need some touchups but if you don’t mind it fading a bit as you drink the night away, its there to keep your lips looking colourful and lovely.
– The Smell and Feel –
The smell isn’t my favourite. It doesn’t have a nice fruity or flowery smell. To be honest it smells like chemicals. But it fades after you put it on, so not to worry! The feel is so unique – it feels really wet but its not slippery and slimy and it sticks to your lips effortlessly but doesn’t make your lips sticky.
– The Downsides –
The smell and the price point at $38.00 (CA).
– Recommend? –
Totally, everyone who loves glosses and loves stains needs at least ONE of these.
You’ll see the swatches below on the left and in the right photo is after I wiped my arm off with with a tissue and then makeup remover.
