Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream liquid lipstick is worth adding not only to your cosmetic bag, but also to your calendar: we suggest trying a new shade every month!

YSL's arsenal seems to contain all possible options for lip products - from the perfect matte lipstick with a graphic stick to juicy polishes of all shades of red.

New this summer, Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream combines the incompatible: creamy texture, ultra-rich pigment and matte finish. It is impossible to choose just one option out of twelve, so we have compiled a beauty schedule (one month - one shade) and plan to strictly adhere to it.

Kirill Shabalin National makeup artist for YSL Beauté in Russia @kirillshabalinThe texture of Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream lipstick is like no other: it is matte but with a velvety finish. This is the first time I've seen such an effect! If you want to create a bright, rich accent, apply lipstick with an applicator: it will evenly distribute the color and provide a clear outline. If you need to complement bright eye makeup, apply the product with a fluffy brush or fingertips in a thin translucent layer.

Shades 210, 206, 216

July, shade 202

Delicate coral color will timely remind of the sea to those who are deprived of it in the summer of 2023. The shade will be in harmony with both a white T-shirt and an evening dress. If you blend a couple of strokes on your cheeks, you will get a fresh girlish look, and make-up artist Natalya Razgulyaeva advises combining such lipstick with eye makeup in delicate lilac tones.

August, shade 209

In the bottle, the shade looks dark plum, but on the lips it reveals its bright side. Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream number 209 has a very advantageous quality: teeth look whiter against its background.

September, shade 206

In autumn, sangria is replaced by mulled wine, and juicy bright lipsticks give way to burgundy ones. If you're still on the hunt for that one, take a look at 206 with the suggestive name Club Bordeaux - you might not want to part with it.

October, shade 211

To make sure that classic red lipstick does not look boring, use different textures in one look. For example, combine Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream ultra-matte lipstick in chili color with radiant powder: make-up artist Maria Kalashnikova tests both products in a short video review.

November, shade 210

Drowsy November atmosphere sets you on a calm wave. Basic nude lipstick is the best solution for late autumn. You don’t need to spend any extra strength or energy, a couple of lazy strokes of the brush - and the languid image is ready!

December, shade 204

Continuing the theme of natural lip makeup, it is impossible not to include lipstick in shade 204 Beige Underground. It effectively emphasizes the natural beauty of the lips, and on occasion can become the basis for something special. For example, on New Year's Eve you can sprinkle such a base coat with colored sparkles - and a festive mood is guaranteed.
