There’s a brand new Rouge Pur Couture The Slim formula and it’s gorgeous. Check out the YSL Slim Glow Matte Lipstick collection, which is all about matte luminosity. I have photos and swatches for you.
I was delighted to work with YSL Beauty on the launch of these lipsticks over on my Instagram. There are lots of application videos there, but I have had quite a few requests from my lovely followers for some traditional swatches and the blog is always the best place for that as far as I’m concerned.

My Review of YSL Slim Glow Matte Lipstick
I asbolutely love the formula of these lipsticks. The texture is smooth and creamy and glides on to the lips. The colour pay off is super satisfying. Matte Glow gives a luminous matte finish which is very flattering and I find it really enhances the look of volume and fullness.
The shape of the bullet makes them so easy to apply. You can line, define and fill in really quickly for the perfect soft, pillowy pout with glowing colour. And all of the shades really do glow, in a soft, diffused way.
Once applied, the YSL Slim Glow Matte Lipstick stays feeling really comfortable and hydrating on the lips. The colour is longlasting, and as time goes on, it fades evenly without any flaking or patchiness. Even after swatching all the shades on my lips, they felt moisturising and smoothing.

Where to buy them
The new Glow Matte lipsticks just launched at:
They are £30 each, although LOOKFANTASTIC have a 10% discount offer with code BEAUTY10 (at the time of writing).
I couldn’t recommend them more. The shades are really universal – I’ve never tried five lipsticks from the same collection that all suit me!
