Blogmas Day 15!
I am a huge fan of YSL makeup so when I visited Selfridges on Tuesday, I immediately headed to the YSL counter. Although I wasn’t planning on buying anything, I came home with the Tatouage Couture Liquid Lipstick in 07. I love a good nude lipstick and when I swatched this on my hand, it honestly lasted at least 24 hours.
Yves Saint Laurent has the most beautiful packaging and this liquid comes in a beautiful frosted bottle with a gold lid and YSL embedded on the side. When I first applied this, my first thought was about the distinct smell. I’m not sure if I like it or not as it smells a bit like alcohol. The reason I chose 07 is that it is almost the same colour as my lips, but nicer so I can wear it for any occasion.
Liquid lipsticks can be quite drying, especially if they have a matte finish. However, this is the most moisturising liquid lipstick I have ever tried. It feels so nice on your lips and like you’ve just put lip balm on rather than a liquid lipstick. When this lipstick dries down, it then feels like you’ve got nothing on your lips, making it so comfortable and easy to wear. The applicator is shaped to contour your lips to give a fuller look. To define your lips, use the sharp edge of the marker to outline the edge of your lips and then use the widest part of the marker to apply one coat in the centre of your lips.
The thing I was most impressed with is how long this lipstick lasts. I will apply this lipstick once before I go to work and it will still be there when I get home. I don’t mean that the outline is still there in patches, I mean it still covers my whole lips as if it has stained them. I am so impressed with this lipstick, I would recommend it to anyone. It comes in a variety of vibrant colours so there is bound to be something to suit everyone.
What’s your favourite lipstick?
