This is a very exciting lip launch from YSL. I still remember fondly the first time I was introduced to the iconic Vernis a Levres, or Glossy Stain as they were often referred to. They were a revelation, and now they haven been reinvented in a brand new texture. Here’s the lowdown on the brand new YSL Vinyl Cream Lip Stain with swatches of all 12 shades. Enjoy!

So this is about high shine that is intensely hydrating, super comfortable, and also long-wearing. YSL are calling it a mash-up of a lip stain, a lipstick and a lip gloss.

I have been wearing 403 on my lips today and it’s gorgeous. A beautiful fresh and vibrant shade in an extremely comfortable and light formulation. The shine is really flattering and makes the lips look juicy and full. You can use a single layer for a light look, or wait and gently push together your lips, then apply a second coat for extra intensity and moisture. Lovely!
