A revolutionary lip product that combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long wear of a stain.

Coat your lips with this lip color that offers a lightweight texture, which immediately melts onto lips. Glossy Stain delivers intense glossy color for an extremely long-lasting shine.

How To Apply:

This can be applied in limitless ways, whether you’re after a playful pop of color, or intense drama and a statement look. Use one color on the cheeks, and the other shade on the lips, to bring contrast yet keep your look within one color family. Or on the cheeks, use both shades, with the lighter shade placed above the apple of the cheeks and the darker one on the apple itself, then blend with a brush or with fingers to achieve a subtle gradation and blush effect. On the lips, swipe one color and blend out for a pretty stain of color, or be daring, and create a duo-toned lip.

A few years ago, I bought one of these from Costco. I paid like 20 dollars instead of 36. I bought the shade 107. It’s a red with iridescent purple/blue shimmer. I remember trying it on for the first time. I was in complete awe. Not only was the color actually stunning on my completion, but the formula was like nothing I’ve ever tried before. The formula is not sticky, but slightly tacky and has this interesting wet or gel-like feeling to it. It wears beautifully throughout the day and keeps that wonderful glossy look to your lips even as it fades. I wore this every single day I went out. Until I found out that this shade was discontinued, that’s why it was at Costco in the first place. To this day I am still saddened by the fact. But the whole line is not discontinued, and the product itself is heaven sent. So I definitely recommend purchasing this. I say it’s worth 36 dollars, because I have yet to find a lip product as wonderful as this.

The best. I love the pigment on the lip stains and the color. It looks so vibrant on my lips. French colors their cosmetics have the most beautiful shades of pink rose and reds. I tried other lip stains and come back to YSL. It smells good and doesn’t make my lips swollen. I feel like it’s breathable and long lasting. It could smudge on your teeth if you don’t blot so remember to do so. I own so many shades of this collection and the original lip stain. If I could I would have every color, so beautiful! Thank you YSL I feel so beautiful when I put on YSL LIPS.

Now don’t get me wrong, this is not the most opaque lip product you will find, not is it the most long lasting, but this product is one of the smoothest, softest feeling lip products on the market! The Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain holds true to the YSL name in the fact that it is LUXURY. From the gold and black packaging, to the feel of the product on the lips, this product is one of the top dogs in the luxury business. It is a stain so the Gloss comes off fairly easily but it does leave a very nice tint to the lips. The scent of the product is immaculate, and the Gloss does not feel sticky or heavy; it is such a great product! This is for those looking to splurge on a great product!

Love how this is a multi combination of a rich pigment of a lipstick, the shine of a gloss, and the staying power of a stain! The color stays on much longer than a lipstick and has a more natural look and feel. It's also not drying at all, unlike other lip stains. My mom got really hooked on this lippie that I just gave her it! Love 💕

Best gloss I own. Not sticky, and stays shiny all the way to the edges of the lip, maximizing their apparent size. The only downside is that I truly despise the sweaty-grapefruit scent. It has a locker-room aspect to it that I have to bear for the 20 minutes or so it takes to fade. Favorite colors are 2 (Golden Praline; a beautiful and sheer neutral nude-pink); 43 (Golden Irreverence; a warm nude that reminds me of old-style amber-colored lipglosses that gave some warmth but not much color to the lips); and 52 (Golden Pebble; a difficult-to-describe but drop-dead gorgeous deep skin tone that resembles Clinique Black Honey products and would look good on just about anyone, but especially darker-skinned women).

The only lip gloss I use since I discovered. I like how smooth it applies and the pigment. It’s the only gloss that actually shows colors on my lips. All other glosses fails when it comes to this. Is it expensive, yes, it it great, yes. Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain

This is one of my go-to lip products. I have Carmen Session for daytime - it looks purple in the tube, but applies as more of a gorgeous rosewood. It does have a bit of transfer, but the product stays on quite well, overall, and the color is a perfect MLBB for me.

Love these and I keep going back for more despite the price tag. I love the sheen, the feel, the application. I have five different colors. Beige Anarchist is my discontinued (alas) favorite and I’m scraping the bottom on the bottle. YSL - bring it back!!

These are super pigmented. I love that these are not a super high shine gloss because they allow for the pigment to shine though. I have very dry lips in the winter time and these are super convenient to wear and they just elevate a basic look while keeping the lips moisturized. They also don't move everywhere all over your lips when you place them on

I love nude colors. It is the perfect shade of nude to dress up or dress down. Once you put this shade on it stays on all day. Even though it’s glossy it can still dry out your lips so make sure to put Vaseline on before and maybe throughout the night or day. The Vaseline also adds a nice gloss to it. I have blue eyes so I love to wear this product with just mascara or do some fun eyeshadow and the lipstick doesn’t clash or take away from my eyes! Awesome product! Great packaging!

For anyone who owns this. Do you count this more a lip gloss feel? Or a regular lipstick stain?
How well does this stay on??
