YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks #9 and #19

I have a lot of lipstick, but for some reason I have an insatiable craving for purchasing new ones. I may have 10 rosy nude shades, but they’re all slightly different, which in turn means I need to have all of them; one rosy nude shade is never enough. Although I own a lot of lipsticks, I don’t own many YSL lipsticks. In fact, I only own one– Rouge Volupté #13 Peach Passion. The quality of the lipstick is amazing (albeit, I’m slightly annoyed that my lipstick tube stopped winding the product back down so I must have a defective one) and although it’s pricey, it’s a nice splurge. That’s why I was super excited when I was able to try out some of the YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick #9 Rose Stiletto

#9 Rose Stiletto* is a berry rose shade that’s great for anyone who likes a berry lip, but doesn’t want anything too dark or bold. I think this is a great autumnal neutral because it’s a deeper berry and rose toned nude that is different than the peach or pink toned nude one would wear during the spring or summer.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks #19 Fuchsia

#19 Fuchsia* is essentially a magenta purple. I honestly didn’t think I would like this shade when I first looked at it, but I actually do. It’s bright and bold, but doesn’t look too intense on the lips. The pigmentation and everything is still there, but when you wear it, it doesn’t look like that cringe-worthy 80s fuchsia lip that makes you want to run your tongue over your teeth because you’re probably rocking some lipstick on them.

The lipsticks are $36, which is pricey, but they’re luxurious lipsticks. The formula is very creamy so they glide onto the lips effortlessly without tugging. They both have a satin finish so your lips actually retain moisture instead of drying out, and if you happen to forget to apply lip balm, these, unlike chapped-lip hugging matte lipsticks, will be kind and forgive you.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks #9 and #19

The great thing about both of these shades, other than the formula and pigmentation, is that they both leave a stain on your lips once they fade. These do have a creamy satin finish so they’re not super long wearing, but lasted about 5 hours on me before fading– that’s pretty good considering they’re not matte!

You can definitely tell the difference between these lipsticks and ones you would find in the drugstore, which is why I think they’re worth the splurge sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, the drugstore does have some great lipsticks, but they’re still not as great as these.

  • I have two shades from this line and I love both, they’re so creamy and pigmented. YSL is a luxurious brand so I can justify the price since you’re paying for the pretty packaging and high quality lipstick.

  • Don’t they look so beautiful! My favourite is #9, it is perfect for this time of year. It is good to know that they are creamy and actually last for some hours. I make sure to check it out when I see them.
