YSL's Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks are one of my favourite lipstick formulas of all time. I almost feel like they don't receive the attention they're worth as they aren't as pretty on the outside as the Rouge Voluptes. I purchased Rouge Pur Couture The Mats in #210 (Nude Accoustic) a couple of weeks back together with the ever so popular #52.
I own quite a few YSL lip products and I love each of them. I wanted to review this particular one as I have been reaching for it non-stop from the day I got it. It's just the perfect "my lips but better" (MLBB) colour that compliments my fair-medium complexion. Especially great when you don't want to think too much about balancing your lip colour with the rest of your makeup. It virtually goes with every look that I've tried from natural to slightly more dramatic.
The texture is also really comfortable on the lips. It's a semi-matte which doesn't leave your lips feeling dry like some other matte formulas out there. The lasting power is nothing impressive but it doesn't slip or slide even without lip liner. It has that signature YSL scent which I don't mind.
And here's a photo I posted on Instagram where I went for a more natural look which has pretty much became my "everyday look". If you're into MLBB colours I highly recommend you look into this one.
