Happy Friday and welcome to your weekly French beauty rendez-vous! How is your summer going? Here it's now really hot every single day, and I'm so glad I just started a job in an air-conditioned office! Anyways, this week I want to show you photos, swatches and share my first impressions of a brand new product by Yves Saint Laurent, the Vinyl Cream Lip Stain.
I'm sure you've heard of YSL's iconic Glossy Stains, one of their best-sellers. They're highly pigmented glosses that last and last because they leave a colorful stain on the lips. The new Vinyl Creams launching for fall are a creamier, more comfortable version.
Let me start by saying that I don't own any of the YSL original Glossy Stains, for a good reason: I just don't like them. They burn my lips and dry them out horribly. So a comfier version sounded like something I might really enjoy, and I was hoping they would work as well for me as the lighter, sheerer Pop Water version (see my review of that one). I bought it a couple weeks ago when it was still only available directly from YSL's website, in the shade 410 Fuchsia Live - I wanted 407 Carmin Session but it was out of stock when I ordered.
So was it a hit or a miss? Let's find out!
