I don’t think I’ve read a bad review about these lipsticks. I am always looking at different reviews before I purchase a product. This particular formula had great reviews and I knew I had to try it for myself. I have one other YSL lipstick formula that I’ve tried before, but I have not tried this particular one.
This is the Rouge Pur Couture YSL lipstick in shade 70. Surprise, surprise, it is a nude, mauve pink. It is a gorgeous nude color – a your lips but better shade. It is a satin, buttery finish. It’s rich in pigment as well as shine.
I bought this at the Sephora Rouge sale. It retails for $37, but with 15% off, I thought I would splurge a bit for a lipstick.
This lipstick smells of vanilla, but it also smells like my grandmother’s lipstick, if that makes sense. It takes me back a bit, reminds me of the times I played in my grandmother’s makeup drawer, and I actually like it.
It contains antioxidants and claims to hydrate. I actually do find it very hydrating, but to be honest, it doesn’t last a long time. I don’t expect it to last long due to the formula, but I do expect the color to wear longer, especially for the money.
I really like this lipstick. I think it is a good lipstick formula for nude, natural colors. I find that I like smoother formulas for natural colors and more matte colors for brighter shades. That’s my personal preference, because I am always afraid of the color bleeding or getting everywhere. (Let’s just say I have had that happen before and it wasn’t pretty!)
Is it worth the money?
Yes and no. It’s good. It’s really good. I love the formula. I know that these are some of others’ “holy grail” of lipsticks. My only wish is that it lasted longer.
Wishing you all the bright fireflies,
