I have a love and hate relationship with nude lipsticks. I don’t have the complexion or attitude to pull the color off - some are too beige; some are too cool toned; some make me look 10 years older and some make me look like I have lip liners around it. Does it stop me from buying them – Nope! I am still actively looking for The One and I believe YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE in number 6 has ticked all my requirements.
My requirements are:
- moisturizing! doesn’t dry out my lips and accentuating my lip lines
- it is a few shades lighter than my natural lip color but doesn’t wash me out
- not too opaque, not too sheer
- not streaky, goes on evenly and no blending is required when applying
Rouge Pur Couture is a new line of lipsticks by YSL, the number 6 shade ‘Rose Bergamasque’ is part of their Spring 2011 Collection.
I personally love the gold packaging by YSL, it is sturdy and looks elegant, the only downside is it leaves finger print marks.
Swatches of YSL Rouge Pur Couture in 6 in daylight. It is a very wearable nude pink color on my naturally pigmented lips. If I want the color to look more beige I just need to conceal my lips with foundation. It goes on buttery smooth and even – no lip balm underneath is required. I can just apply and go. It feels soft and lightweight on my lips, and has a subtle sheen to its finish, making my lips look more plumped.
Have you tired YSL Rouge Pur Couture yet? What is your favorite nude lipstick? I am very interested to hear your recommendations.
