I hope you are all doing well. Today I want to review the popular YSL Tatouage Couture matte stain liquid lipstick. I got this beauty for my birthday and have been trying it out ever since. I have the shade Rosewood Gang, as you can see. I hope you enjoy this review!
Overview & Claims
Each YSL matte stain costs £29 which is quite a lot for one liquid lipstick. YSL is a luxury brand though, so the price point is high. But for £29, I would expect the quality to be outstanding.
The packaging is gorgeous. The frosted heavy duty plastic bottle comes in a gold box, which matches the gold lid. The YSL logo is quite large on the lid. This one is definitely a lipstick you can have on display.
The applicator is really unique. I haven’t seen anything like this before. As you can see from the pictures, it is an squared off shape with a slanted edge, this makes a precise application surprisingly easy.
This lipstick claims to have high pigmentation, comfortable and give a naked lip feel. It also says that it provide full coverage, high precision and no colour bleeding. It will last for 8 hours according to YSL.
As I have already mentioned, this lipstick is so easy to apply. Once it is one and has had a moment to dry down, it is completely matte and very pigmented, specially considering this is a matte stain. Since the consistency is so thin, I wasn’t expecting such a bright opaque colour, so this definitely impressed me.
I’ve got to say, I absolutely love this lipstick. It feels extremely light weight on the lips, so I would definitely agree with the ‘naked lip feel’ claim. It doesn’t feel drying at all. It does sink into the fine lines after a while, but it is not so bad in my opinion. The colour doesn’t bleed and it lasts really well on the lips. After a few hours the colour does slightly fade, but since this is a matte stain and not a thick lipstick, it still looks really lovely once faded so you don’t need to reapply if you don’t want too.
Another bonus of this lipstick is the smell. It smells so incredible!! Once it is on your lips you can’t really smell it though, so if smells irritate you, I wouldn’t worry too much.
Overall, although on the pricey side for a lipstick, the quality of this is really good so I would recommend trying them out if you get the chance. If you’re into pinks, Rosewood Gang is a fantastic choice.
