The Yves Saint Laurent Summer 2013 Collection features two Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stains ($34 USD / $36 CAD), including this spicy coral shade in Nº 31 Corail Alla Prima. This collection takes inspiration from the subtle palette of warm tones and contrasting waves of twilight seen during sunset. A variation on torrid, golden hues and cool touches of violet, coral, fuchsia and green, this breathtaking collection will be available in May 2013 (but you can already check it out online).
I’ve raved in the past about the YSL Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stains, because they are truly one of the most unique (and coolest) lip product i’ve ever come across! They have a very thin, liquid-gel texture that spreads very thin on the lips. A single layer gives a hint of color, or you can build the layers to pump up the intensity and shine to a full coverage, high-gloss finish. The color stains the lips for hours and hours of comfortable wear and the applicator is the perfect size and shape to ‘pave’ the lips with the glossy stain. It’s truly innovative, and the YSL version is far superior to the newer imitation formulas.
This shade in particular is a stunning spicy coral- a single layer leaves the lips with just a hint of juicy coral, but if you add 5-6 layers, you’re left with a gorgeous reddish orange lacquered finish. They smell amazing, feel comfortable (perhaps just a tad drying as the gloss wears off, but nothing like typical liquid lip stains) and you can eat, drink and kiss without worry of them disappearing. This shade is a definite must-have for summer, and if you don’t have any of the YSL Glossy Stains (or if you’re in the market for a killer coral lip), then check this one out!
