*Thank you to Influenster for gifting me this product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are 100% my own experiences!!
I’m all about a bold lip any time of year, but I do switch up what colors I like to go with as the seasons change. Lip products are one of the few beauty products that I’m always willing to try new brands. My current collection has all kinds of brands, colors, sticks, glosses, stains…Basically I’ll give anything a shot as long as I like the color! And this pink was very me.
Starting with application I was pleased. If a formula is hard to put on I won’t give it much time or patience! But even though the shape of the brush is a bit different, it actually made it really easy to get clean lines and an even layer of stain. It only took one layer to get great color & coverage!
I wasn’t the biggest fan of how long it took to dry once applied. It was a little odd in how wet it made my lips feel. I tend to put my lip color on right before I leave the house and this made me feel like I needed to wait a while for it to set before I could do anything. Once it dried it was great though! Not sticky or heavy or anything.
It also is not very transfer-proof. I’m pretty aware of that with a lot of my lip products when I first put them on, but after a few hours I stop thinking about it. However my pup wasn’t all that pleased when I gave her a kiss in the evening and she was left with a bright lipstick smooch on her face. Oops!
Overall, I’m pretty happy with having this YSL Tatouage Couture Lip Stain to choose from when I’m figuring out makeup in the morning. I definitely know this color will get a lot of use and the issues are only minor little things.
If you’re looking for a new lip stain it’s worth giving a try! There are more than 15 colors to choose from and it’s at a very reasonable price point.
