A New Fav Lip Cream.

YSL Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream Liquid Lipstick

I always love the look of matte lips but can have a hard time with the texture. I don’t like the tight, dry feel that most long-wear matte lip creams offer. It’s uncomfortable, and the wear can be upsetting if you eat or drink something… rather than gradually fading away (my preference!) I am always the person with an ombre mouth after a  drink or two! And don’t get me started on removing some of the really long-lasting ones. I’ve ruined many a washcloth.

YSL Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream Liquid Lipstick

Anyway, Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream Liquid Lipstick is different. It’s creamy and just feels soft on your lips. It isn’t sticky or stiff at all, just velvety and nice. The wear is really good too. I wouldn’t classify it as a true long wear lipstick which is what I like, it gradually fades over several hours and you don’t need a brillo pad to take it off.

My favorite color is N204 Beige Underground; a beigey nude with rosy undertones. It’s so pretty on… it looks (as you know I love) like my lips, but better.

PS – my other favorite lip cream: this one is more of a pink!

    Grace I love your honesty. I tried the matte lipsticks, and just like you they did not work. I had the same experience with them. Now I will have to try YSL especially since Sephora has it on sale.

  4. I’ll have to try this lip cream. My boyfriend hates matte lipsticks because they make my so dry. So I’ve stopped wearing them. Maybelline’s lip tint seems to work well.
