YSL Rouge Pur Couture Sample

The best things are free :) I do not own any YSL lipsticks... I've heard a lot about them, but never actually purchased one... I was happy to receive this sample and try a couple of shades first...
 this mini sample came with little lip brush, that I did not use to swatch with... I prefer my own lip brush... this seemed too small and a bit flimsy for the job...
 all the shades looked very promising...
 First I swatched these on my arm, and oh wow I was instantly won over by the texture... very creamy and smooth
 Then I sampled them on my lips.  Consistency comfortable, soft, luxurious...
First on my lips Beige Tribute N°10... and as I said I was won over by the formula, but not by the color. This is not me... too pale... I looked a bit washed out, and sickly... It's a pretty shade, just not my shade...
 Second sample... Rose Stiletto N°9, and this is totally this pretty Rose...
 last Le Rouge N°1, a bright dramatic red... love it, but once again this shade is not really me... I have a couple of reds already... it's not exactly an everyday color for me...
so first impression of YSL Rouge Pur Couture is very favorable, I understand the following these lippies have... one of these days I'll spoil myself with one...


  1. These lipsticks sound great, I love the red shade xx
