I have six of the shades to show you.
603 In Berry Deep, 605 Bain de Corail, 610 Nude Underwater:
612 Rouge Deluge, 617 Dive in the Nude, 618 Wet Vermilion:
They are all such pretty shades.
I thought I’d show you a couple of them on my lips, and went for a nude and a bold.
Here is 610 Nude Underwater:
And this is 612 Rouge Deluge:
They feel really nourishing and comfortable on the lips and have no heavy feel. It feels almost like a water-gel, or an essence. You can tailor the finish to what you want, so you could go for a smudgy stain, or layer up for something more glossy with deeper colour payoff.
Some of the shades are sheerer than others. For example 610 is a lovely sheer nude, whereas 612 gives a much bolder opaque finish. In fact, 612 is the most opaque option out of the shades I was sent. I love them both.
Where is YSL Water Stain available in the UK?
The shades are £29 each and available now at Selfridges.
