YSL Glossy Stains #9 Rouge Laque and #5 Rouge Vintage: Swatches, Review, FOTD

YSL Glossy Stains #9 Rouge Laque and #5 Rouge Vintage

 

Hi all!

As you know, I’m mad about the Glossy Stains. My twitter and instagram feed are a GS love fest and I really think that these are the most exciting products release in recent times. In fact- keep your eyes peeled, I have 3 more of these babies winging their way to me from the US courtesy of the wonderful Xiao of Messy Wands) [update, here is the link to the new Glossy Stains]

The extraordinary thing about the Glossy Stains is the texture of the product- YSL has managed to create a formula where the shine lasts for hours on the lips and somehow survives meals and drinking (the stain lasts forever too, but there are plenty of products already on the market that achieve that).

I’ve been told the secret is ethylcellulose (a trick used commonly in the agri-food sector to coat food for a tempting shine), which is an ultra resistant polymer blended with silicone oil and ’emollient’ oil in an aqueous base. GENIUS.

Colour:

Glossy Stain #5 Rouge Vintage is a rose pink, and will deepen to a deep raspberry shade with two layers.

Glossy Stain #9 Rouge Laque is a cheerful tomato red which intensifies to a fire engine red with a second layer.

 

Texture and performance:

The product applies with a gel/watery consistency initially, then ‘develops’ on the lips becoming more cushiony lip gloss like in texture (and the colour deepens significantly on the lips at the same time).

I find this to be non sticky, and neither moisturising nor drying.

 

Dupe:

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the L’Oreal Shine Caresse, and how it’s a pretty good dupe for the Glossy Stains. I’ve tried both, and honestly- the formula feels PRACTICALLY IDENTICAL. The Glossy Stains probably apply a little smoother, are a little more pigmented, and have a more ‘sophisticated’ feel to the colour range, but dammit the Shine Caresses are an amazing dupe.’

Watch this space for a massive Shine Caresse swatch fest and review.

I don’t regret picking up these Glossy Stains though (and I have 3 more winging their way to me from the US) because I’m a sucker for luxury.

    I love this. I have No 9 and I really badly want No 5. I tried No 5 on in sephora a few months ago and loved it. You look amazing in both colors.

  6. […] I’ve recently been given the chance to try the L’Oreal Shine Caresse Lipcolours, which have just been released in Australia.

      Great reading after a long ass day at work! The balls…cracking me up! The big rubber ball at the gym, oh God that thing and everything the trainer makes me do on it…I swear, coordination has never been my strong suit and me on the ball is still pure comedy! It’s always 2 days after that it hurts. A lot.
