Editor-in-Chief of FashionVIPdergisi.com Veronika Gnezdilova tested the new YSL Beauté lip balm lipstick

The first Rouge Pur Couture The Slim lipstick appeared last spring and immediately settled in my makeup bag. She is cool!

And now YSL Beauté has released its updated version - Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Sheer Matte lipstick with a weightless texture. I'm crazy about her too!

When Rouge Pur Couture The Slim first appeared, she immediately interested me with her unusual shape! Have you ever seen a stick with a square cut? I hadn't seen it until that moment, which, by the way, turned out to be very convenient. The novelty, fortunately, has exactly the same shape.

Thanks to the diamond-shaped cut, I can do without a pencil, although it was impossible to imagine a bright lip makeup without it before. With lipsticks from The Slim series, making up lips with colored lipstick no longer seems like something overly complicated. I just put the edge of the stick to the corner of the lower lip and lead it to the middle. With the upper lip, on the contrary: I lead the stick from the center of the lip to the corners.

Due to the high concentration of pigments and dense finish, Rouge Pur Couture The Slim lipstick (on video) looked as bright and saturated on the lips as possible. It did not need to be applied in two layers, it was enough to lightly touch the lips with lipstick to get the color identical to the color in the stick. The novelty works differently: the saturation of the hue can be adjusted by the number of layers. One layer gives a light and natural result, two - saturated and bright. I applied lipstick in shades 101 and 103 in a thin layer, and they looked very natural.

Also, Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Sheer Matte lipstick is easy to create a trendy “kissed lips” effect. To do this, you need to type lipstick on the pad of your finger, fold your lips as if for a kiss and distribute lipstick with driving movements. Fast, convenient, effective and fashionable! Detailed instructions from the national make-up artist YSL Beauté in Russia Kirill Shabalin can be found here.

The texture of the lipstick is soft and creamy. It contains caring oils, so it is easily distributed over the lips, gives them comfort and moisturizes well. And this is despite the fact that the finish of Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Sheer Matte is matte. Marketers did not deceive, promising that the lipstick will create the effect of a second skin. And Tom Pechot, creative director of YSL Beauté, once said: “If you apply lipstick in one layer, it will seem that fruit juice remains on the lips.”Everything is so, it can be seen in the photo where I'm testing shade 112.

There are 12 shades in the collection, from dusty rose to expressive fuchsia. The brightest I've tested is 105. It gives rich coverage even when applied in one layer, but it still feels like a hydrating balm on the lips.
