YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique

Hope you are all having a glorious weekend! Let’s talk about an absolute winner of a lip product!

YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique is a staining lip gloss in a medium peach shade with a bit of silver shimmer. I caved and bought this pretty late but I’m so glad I picked this colour. From the plethora of shades available, I feel it’s the most unique! For me it’s a lot like Chanel Liberte in a gloss!

My love for peach lipsticks that actually suit me is new and growing. Corail Aquatique is a perfect shade because while the peach is very light, it’s a bit sheer and muted to adapt to my lip colour. You can build this up to opaque coverage but I like keeping it slightly sheer. The shimmer isn’t very prominent on the lips, only visible up close. It’s very fine, so you don’t really feel it on the lips.

The gloss feels very wet and cool when you apply it, somewhere inbetween a gel and liquid in terms of consistency. After it sets it’s comparatively difficult for it to budge. I mean if you rub your lips it will come off but it doesn’t slip around like most sheer lipsticks/glosses do. You can expect it to stay in place and not smear. It’s also very comfortable to wear with almost no tackiness on the lips.

The staining power is strong in this one! Even if you swatch it on your arm, it will leave a stain behind. I quite like that because when the gloss wears out, there’s still an even colour left behind. Speaking of wear time, is 5-6 hours good for you? It certainly is for me!

There’s a ready drugstore dupe for these, the L’oreal Shine Caresse glosses (Juliette and Lolita). In terms of wear time and consistency they are very similar but they lack in comfort (more tacky) and shade range (only 8).

The packaging is gorgeous with the gloss displayed in the little transparent area, very handy to identify shades. The applicator is doe foot but very tapered at the end, making it easier to apply in the inner corners. You get a whopping 6ml of product for $36. Not sure of the INR price since I bought this at Duty Free. I went ahead and also bought the shade Fuchsia Tomboy. :)

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Oh this would looks great on you! I think in between you had reviewed a shade of the new Chanel glosses, a light peachy pink, it’s a little bit similar to that. :)

    Oh I love YSL Glossy Stains. I also love the L’Oreal dupes (Aqua Stains or Wet Shine Stains) but YSL offers far more interesting colors.
    Corail Aquatique is beautiful on you. :)

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      I agree, L’oreal has nice basic shades but YSL has really good corals and violets. I’m in awe of the shade range any time I look it up, just so many options. :)

  • http://www.kissandmakeupsbeautyblog.com/ Kiss & Make-up

    Yesssssss, it’s pretty! <3 Before actually clicking the article and just seeing the thumbnail I thought you had reviewed the same product as me today :-)

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Hahaha, the Bourjois glosses right? I might try those if/when they release here. :)
