Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in 12 Corail Fauve Review and Swatches

If you feel like making a splurge, I have a fantastic product for you.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain($32) has everything. Beautiful color, glossy shine, and staying power that just won't quit. When I first tried it, I couldn't wait to go out and show it off. Lucky for me, I got to show it off through brunch, lunch, and drinks, too.

The slanted tip of Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain makes perfect application a cinch, and the texture is easy to spread.

The formula feels thin at first, but YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain is notable for how its texture changes. After a few moments, the formula transforms from a thin liquid to a gel-like gloss with high shine and comfort.

Incredibly, the glossy finish lasts through several meals and the underlying stain lasts even longer. Plus, the gel texture of YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain avoids the the uncomfortable, dry feeling that is common among lip stains, and the shine looks gorgeous, sexy, and polished.

Based on Sephora's color swatches, I wasn't expecting much from Corail Fauve. While the pictures make it look like your standard-issue coral pink, the reality is so much better! To my eye, Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in 12 Corail Fauve appears to be more of a pinky-red coral, which I love. 

"Corail Fauve" is French for "tawny coral." Tawny denotes a golden brown hue. I don't see much brown is this shade, but the color is somewhat muted. Although it is a little bold, it isn't crazy bright and looks great for daily wear.

Bottom Line: Although the price tag is high, I foresee Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in 12 Corail Fauve becoming a constant fixture in my makeup bag. The color makes me feel confident and pretty, and the wear time of the glossy stain is exceptional. With 19 shades to choose from, I bet you can find a YSL Rouge Pur Couture Stain to fall in love with too!
