The YSL Glossy Stain #19

Being a natural girl at heart, Spring is just one of my favorite season for lip wear. But now that Spring is over and Summer is finally here, I have to experiment with brighter colors. YSL is one of my most loved brands and I have always heard about their Glossy Stains and how incredible they are. The first one I tried was #7 and I was impressed at first but after a day of wear, I was completely disappointing-these things aren’t cheap ya’know! It was too dark for my skin tone and I gave up quickly on the Glossy Stains last year. A year later I passed the YSL shelves and saw #19, it looked beautiful as I swatch it on my palm. I decided to walk around for 20 minutes to see what color it would transform into and I was shocked and in love! I have been ever since…

The Texture is a water-like and after a few minutes it quickly settles. Beige Aquarelle, #19, looks quite cool , pale and bright after a swatch but just wait until it fully rest on your lips for the true color to come. It tries to a subtle light,  somewhat sheer,  peachy-pink that is good for every day wear. If you apply more than one layer to intensify the color. I would recommend exfoliating your lips before usage because I find that it can cling to dry patches. It lasts about 4-5.5 hours on my lips; even when I ate I still had a pinkish stain left on my lips.

I am in love with this Glossy Stain and now I see what the hype is all about! I always carry this around in my purse and I find that it complements my skin tone beautifully.
