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.
