  • "My favorite lipsticks are from this company the colors are always so beautiful and easy to apply to the lips they are also long lasting and I can get a good wear out of them the packaging is so luxurious I would definitely buy this again and again " in 8 reviews
  • "I got a mini version of this as part of a set at Sephora and I absolutely love how smooth and creamy this formula is. The price point is definitely up there, but the color is bright and pigmented that I couldn't resist!" in 7 reviews
  • "I purchased ysl #17, rose dahlia. It's a beautiful coral, pink colour. When I applied it, I noticed it was creamy and hydrating. YSL colors are buildable. One application is long lasting and just feels good on the lips making every woman feel beautiful. The price is on the high end. Although this lipstick is long lasting, full of emollients and good for your lips. I recommend ysl products. I believe every woman should have at least 1 tube in her bag for any occasion." in 4 reviews
  • "You really get what you pay for with this lippy such a luxury feel on application and leaves lips feeling nourished too with lovely natural colour pay off" in 3 reviews

I have been using YSL makeup for over 40 years. Especially their lipsticks. I got my first YSL lipstick on my first trip to Paris when I was 16 years old. It was a very pink pink. I wore it until there was nothing left and I mean not even a pinch.

That's why YSL red is the perfect red for my face. It has blue undertones in it so it goes on like a cherryish red. It's hard to explain because I'm sure it looks so different on everyone. I just know that when I'm in a killer black dress, or I have a killer black suit on, or a beautiful yellow silk blouse I want this red lipstick on that day, because it just blows your whole outfit up like 10 dimensions. Immediatly you are noticed whether that was your intention or not. Let's face it if you're putting on this lipstick it's your intention to be noticed, that's what it's for. It's not for those you who don't like maximum observance.

So when I'm feeling my best, and I have my hottest outfit on, this is the lipstick I always go to. Out of probably 90 out of 100 times somebody comments on how beautiful it is on me. My suggestion is give it a try, if it's not your red, they have other Reds but their lipsticks are fantastic. There so luscious and they last forever despite not being those 24-hour last forever lipsticks. They're so nourishing and so emollient that they stay where you put them, and they feel delicious and when you take them off your lips your lips feel soft and that's what I love about YSL. Lots of love Gracie

Review for: 04 Rouge Vermillion - Satin Finish more...
Great if you really want to spoil yourself and find a color (or 3 you love on you!) I think Color 4 Rouge Vermillon - raspberry red is perfect as an understated "red" as it is not too bright or overly done looking, never "clown-like" which is my personal worst fear when it comes to my search for MY Perfect Red! It is very wearable, looks chic yet still natural. To me, it comes off as a naturally looking elegant lip. I expected more red but it is more muted like a natural looking lip color on my fair skin, dark hair, and brown eyes. Sometimes I feel it makes my skin look even more fair but as odd as that may sound it is a good looking, sort of "brightening" effect.

The formula is soft, feels creamy. Some might feel it accentuates lip lines. This color is not a matte so I guess it is what they call their "satins" and it has a slight shine to it, but not very much, it just looks natural in my opinion. I applied this a few hours ago without any liner to just wear around the house to get a "feel" for it's wear before wearing it out after I'd let a light moisture gloss absorb into my lips to help avoid the lip line accentuation I'd experienced in-store while trying different things and had applied it to bare lips there because I wanted to really feel the actual, True product feel and look alone without any "dressing it up" with anything. After some talking and wear I see super tiny, very few little spots where it has feathered but that is only seen by me getting all up super close in the mirror and they are in a spot I accidentally touched after application.

This is an easily transferable formula, even the slightest touch and it will transfer. It feels very light and comfortable but I guess that transfer issue is what you pay for that light feel. I don't think this is long wearing at all and with this color you won't want to eat or drink not only because of the transfer but because I feel you'll have to totally re-do your lips after, and it doesn't really seem to stain hardly in my opinion. If you "dress up" this with a liner, blotting, powder, re-applying, etc. it could definitely do better when it comes to better/longer wear, and/or bleeding. But be cautious if you wear these in the Summer or any heat, especially if you decide to apply any sort of lip gloss over it because I had an embarrassing incident with Le Fuscia where my mom had to tell me that my bottom lip basically "looked like a tear!" I checked and saw that the Sun had indeed melted my lips and my bottom lip had pooled together all the products to the center by gravity and, yes, looked like a "tear" about to fall onto my chin! Of course she waited until everyone had seen me in that bright color :(

But I just want to emphasize that these are creamy soft so be careful wearing, don't over apply- they are very pigmented anyway, and be careful where you store them especially when they are this pricy. You only need a touch to get super comfy coverage with Color 4 Rouge Vermillon - raspberry red, and look naturally elegant, and just remember those couple points to pay attention to, and you'll feel definitely spoiled by these!

Review for: 70 Le Nu - basic nude more...
I love their lipsticks, they are very moisturizing, and I have really dry lips all the time so this lippie definitely helped with that. Only thing I didn’t like was I had this weird taste from it. It wasn’t super bad but the taste was there. I will continue to repurchase from them because it definitely helps with dry lips.

Review for: 207 Rose Perfecto - matte blush pink more...
I really love YSL products. Their lipsticks stay for a long time, and they are made of great ingredients. some of the ingredients are peppermint oil, pomegranate extract, and black pearl powder. They are about 40 dollars but it is definitely worth it. They make a great small gift as well.

I love this color! It is absolutely the most perfect red I’ve ever seen. It is creamy and I don’t feel as though I constantly have to reapply. The packaging is pretty too! I ordered mine online and was able to customize it with stars and it is engraved with my first and middle name on the lid!

I always have lipstick on my teeth so I liked it for the reason that it's not gooey but I kind of felt that I needed to apply a lipgloss over top. Not sure if that is how it's made or not. I'll have too experiment a little. Does not have a weird smell or taste.

I have been a drugstore lipstick girl for years. While I usually prefer a creamier finish, for a matte, they are superior to other matte finish lipsticks I've tried. But I hate how matte lipsticks and their dryness effect that comes with it. However, this formula is amazing, rich in color, very comfortable to wear, and super hydrating. Although it is a matte lipstick, it still has a soft feel so it doesn't dry out your lips. I got the shade rouge rock and it's such a sexy romantic color. I only wear it when I want to be bold or simply on date nights. My boyfriend loves when I wear red lipstick so I try to only wear this on occasions! Love love love 💕

At first I was so impress with you can customize it with a message. Good for present. Then when I opened I love the sense. It smells so good and relaxed and addictive. Then when you applied. It's really smooth and you know you picked the right one

Nice lipstick, a tad expensive though. I got this as a gift from my motherl. The color was pretty but I dont think I would purchase it on my own. I have some others that I just gravitate to more and are less expensive.
