If you’ve read my beauty posts before, you may know that I’m obsessed with YSL lip products. They are on the pricey side, but I really think they’re totally worth the splurge. These liquid matte lip stains claim to be lightweight with a naked-lip feel, which really drew me in because I hate how heavy and dry most matte liquid lipsticks make my lips feel.
These are the most unique matte liquid lipsticks I’ve ever tried. They truly are lightweight, and I barely even notice them on my lips. They give a matte appearance but don’t feel dry and matte on my lips, and also don’t emphasize fine lines in my lips. They do wear off, but when they do, they wear off evenly and leave a nice stain and don’t leave my lips feeling dry.
The YSL Tatouge Lip Stain has the most unique applicator which makes applying the product so easy. The straight edges and corners of the applicator really help to give a precise application, without the need for a lip liner or to clean up any excess that might go outside of the lip line.
I, of course, went for the nude shades, as well as a more mauve toned shade. Honestly, I thought the mauve shade would be more of a pink mauve, but since its more of a purple mauve, I don’t like the color very much on myself. I also think this shade (#26) applied a little patchy and didn’t look as good as the other two. That may be something to keep in mind if you go for other colors. The two nude shades (#7 & #25) applied beautifully.
I would highly recommend the YSL Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stains if you like matte liquid lipsticks, but don’t like how uncomfortable and drying they can be. Have you tried these out?
