And considering it’s quite an intense colour, it is actually really rather easy to work with. I put a first fairly thin coat on and work it on with a brush and then apply another coat on top to add intensity. For super shine I go for a third coat!
It stays put really well. The first time I tried it I had an cup of tea and a sandwich and it looked untouched straight after. Yesterday I applied it and then travelled into central London for a wine tasting lesson and drank from loads of different glasses where it barely transferred. Very impressive!
I also ate a tonne of Thai fishcakes and it still looked good! Sorry I don’t usually bring food and drink so heavily into makeup posts but I feel it’s relevant here!
This is it after all that and approximately 6 hours of wear and me chewing my lips on the way home… I didn’t re-apply at all.
I’m addicted! The YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres retails at RRP £22.50, go to YSLbeauty.co.uk to check them out.
