YSL Vernis À Lèvres Water Stain

Hi Guys!

I brought my first YSL lip stain over the summer, opting to spend a bit more money to see if I could discover a lip stain that isn’t sticky or drying and is long lasting. Was I asking for too much or is this kind of lip product achievable?

The YSL Water Stain is a water enriched formula which provides high coverage and high shine. It feels very comfortable on the lips without the stickiness feeling (hurrah!).

The pigmentation is fantastic which is great for the bold popping colours within the shade range.

I brought this lip stain in shade 612; a bold red. The application is very easy and precise and I love having a lip doesn’t require reapplying often during the day and the added bonus of knowing it doesn’t transfer onto my teeth!

I also love the shiny finish, it makes my lips look and feel wonderfully hydrated and glossy.

The texture is nice and light which is fantastic given how buildable this gloss is and the high pigment it gives.

I also like to sometimes just dab a small amount onto my lips and blend it onto my lips with my fingers for a lighter more natural look… but for a night out or special occasion I can build this onto my lips for a full glam look.

Overall, I really like this lip stain a lot! It doesn’t dry out and ruin my lips, it’s long lasting, the shade range is wonderful and the application is easy! What more can I ask for!?
