Launching Today: YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 14 - 2012

Oh boy, oh boy.  Forget cards, flowers, and chocolates and check out these beauties from YSL new to the counter today.

The YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres are a new lipstick/stain hybrid in an impressive range of 20 shades, each featuring a nifty precision applicator.  They promise a light texture with buildable coverage.  From the few swatches I’ve seen online, they look to be sheerer than something like Chanel’s Rouge Allure Laque but I’m hoping that at least one of the reds fills the painful hole left behind by the discontinuation of Dragon.  I’m currently lusting after #05 Red Mauve to satisfy my ‘red’ craving and #15 Pink Lollipop for a more day-friendly alternative.

Watch the ‘behind the scenes’ video below for a further insight on this new lip-offering from the Parisian fashion house.

Are any of those shades calling you to the counter?

    I saw these last week in Debenhams. 😉 They seem very pigmented, 2 darker bright pink shades stained my hand just after 30 seconds! But I won’t be indulging in these, I have so many lip products already.

  2. Anna says:

    They have been out for two weeks in House of fraser now, they are really glossy but don’t last. They stain your lips anyway and nice colours aswell

  3. Oh my word, I definitely need that red in my life and I need it now!

  4. Nargis says:

    I want one of those so badly! Either a pillarbox red or a darrk rose

    pbi – #5 isn’t red in the slightest, it’s a YLBB shade. If you are after red, 10 or 20 is your best bet. There isn’t really a dark rose shade in the range as yet either sadly. Make sure you try before buying as hand swatches are deceptive, I’ve found.

    I was in Selfridges today and bought no. 15. In Germany we’ve had them for several weeks now, I’m really surprised that we got them earlier than the Britons 😉

  7. Ruth says:

    I’ve got 4 colors from Sephora, in Canada. They are the greatest lip product ever created.

    I’m going Red Flash…oh my. Thanks god, will be traveling tomorrow to Amsterdam, does anyone know, where I can find YSL counter there?

    Ooh I need to check these out in a store soon – I’m very tempted!
