I don’t know whether I like a product bearing the word ‘stain’ in its name, but I do know that I’m quite keen on YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain. “Texture and shine of a gloss, long wear of a stain” is the sales pitch. I like that it feels very light, very comfortable, and the colour is rich and indeed glossy. I’m not 100% convinced of the stainability, though – but I don’t mind. I never really got into the lip-stain concept; it just looks like you weren’t very thorough with your cleansing after a while. …And by the way, does anyone still use Benefit Benetint? I never bought more than one bottle way back when, and what’s more the runny consistency really didn’t do it for me.

All that aside, YSL products would be vastly improved (in my humble opinion) if they got rid of the rose-scent. Does anyone else find the fragrance off-putting? I suppose it’s a testament to the performance of the products that I am a repeat purchaser of its lipsticks and mascaras, because I really detest the scent.

The shade in the pic is #3 Brun Cachemire.

  1. Well the first time that tried this product was when I went to the Benefit counter. The woman who did my makeup was the first to introduce me to the benetint. I honestly really loved it. I was scared that it would stain my lips all weirdly, but the girl who put it on said that it would eventually fade and look natural. I would definitely say that it did. It was great. It looked even better with the California Kissin’ on top. Both made a great combo to make your lips look naturally red and the teeth white (because of the California Kissin’). I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. I guess the only downside to this is that it might not last for too long. For me it usually just last for about 4 hours or more. Not too long. BUT still a great product! I LOVE IT.
