YSL Nude Lipstick Review for Brown Girls

There are only two things that I look for in a lipstick – stay power and the right color.  For some reason both of these are hard to find in one lipstick BUT when you find it in one product it’s downright amazing. I have shared many times on Instagram stories that Kylie’s matte lipsticks are my ABSOLUTE favorite (better than HUDA in my opinion) for both stay power and color, but they are matte. 

If you are not into matte lipsticks, I have gotten my hands on a few Nude lipsticks from YSL that I wanted to share with you that serve up a whole lot of fashion and function.  I have reviewed them all here on YouTube, but I wanted to share the two out of the three that are my favorite.

Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick

Color: Nude in Private (9)

My lips dry out A LOT during the winter months and although I almost always have chap stick (like this tinted one) in my bag, this Oil in a Stick lipstick is down right amazing.  It keeps your lips hydrated and glossy for hours!  I love having shiny puckered lips all afternoon, so if you on the market for a high gloss and feel good lipstick, check this one out.   Also, side note the lipstick tube itself is gorgeous – feels as fancy as it is!

Rouge Pur Couture Lip Color

Color: Le Nu (70)

This lipstick has a luminous satin texture that does not cause any dry out.  With hyrdo-spheres and natural extracts this lipstick keeps hydration locked in.  It is also the winner of Allure magazine’s ‘Best of Beauty’ Award for Best Bright Lipstick shade No. 19, 2016.

The third one I tried but am not featuring in this post is the Vinyl Cream Lip Stain in color Beige Bounce.  This lip color was just too sheer to matter.  Although it has a nice texture, this color delivers very little on our complexion. 

Sometimes you can find multiples of these on sale in a kit. I got this one with all three in a cosmetic case for $72 over the holidays and it was such a great deal.  The only kit on sale now is this one for $60.

I hope you found this review helpful.  We like to share things that we like and sometimes things that we don’t just to keep things real. 

Get your glam on!
