YSL's New Water Lip Stain Is the Only Product You'll Want on Your Lips This Summer
When it comes to swiping on a lip in Summer, I'm a little hesitant, mostly because I hate how heavy/chalky it can feel, especially if I'm making the transition from beach to bar (which is a lot tbh). But YSL may have just changed my mind with their new Illicit Nudes Collection.
Dropping this week, YSL's beauty range welcomes two newcomers: the Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Glow Matte Lipstick and the Vernis A Lervre Water Stain Glow Lip Stain. While both prods look like the ideal Summer handbag staple, it's the water stain that's a real game-changer for me. Formulated with ingredients picked from YSL's Ourika Gardens in the Moroccan Atlas Mountains — aloe vera and mallow flower — it offers a romantic, sheer flush of colour and an instant boost of hydration upon application. It applies smoothly like a balm yet gives good shine like a gloss, and comes in 9 barely-there shades.
Meanwhile, the Rouge Pur Couture Slim Glow Matte Lipstick looks and feels a little different to your usual lippie. YSL have swapped the traditional bullet-shaped tip for an edgier square-shaped design, that helps with easy application, even in the tighter, curved edges of your lips like your cupids bow. It comes in 12 creamy, matte shades and also contains the same hydrating ingredients as the lip stain. Which means I might even be a Summer lippie-convert after I give this baby a go.
Both the YSL Water Stain Glow Lip Stain and the Slim Glow Matte Lipstick are $62 each and available online from today. *Adds every shade to cart*
