Ratings & Reviews
Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain is rated 4.04 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Check color carefully - This is a wonderful product that I highly recommend, with just one reservation. I ordered off the site, after carefully comparing colors. I can only wear warm-to-neutral colors, and decided that #29 (Rose Fourreau) was perfect for me. Everything about it, including the color featured box when it arrived, suggested a neutral rose, However, it turned out to be genuinely cold in reality., I gave it to my 24-year-old daughter, whom wears cold colors, and she is delighted with it - in fact, she ordered another color, and takes one of the two everywhere. The nearest YSL counter is quite a distance from me, but I won't buy another until I see it in person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! all other products i have tried are promised disasters compared to this. once you try it on no other stain will do. i found most other "bite" types of any sort wear off quickly. if not the case then; the stain looks like a cheap apply of RIT dye, normally not looking anything like a beautiful woman's lips. more like something for grade school girls. no offense just some brands aren't uniform on my lips. any color transitions in my natural lip color show through like age spots. ysl gloss hides my imperfections and doesn't stick in crevices. seems to 'float' on top of my lips. too awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Very Best! Absolutely fantastic! Like all women I am constantly in search of the perfect lipstick shade- I found it, and the perfect product as well! I use Camel Croisiere, and never would have thought this was my perfect color but it is- I keep 2 at all times, one for home and one in my purse. It is not too shiny even though it says gloss. It absorbs well and looks so natural, feels good on the lips. Doesn't last all day but I really like the applicator so it is nice to re-apply. I am blond with golden/ olive skin, and can't wear any blue undertones. This has a coral/ peach/ nude look that also serves as a persimmon/ red color- perfect for everything. The color intensifies with more applications. I cannot recommend this product enough, and I hope they never stop making it!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vinyl Cream Lip Stain I have been purchasing lip stains from YSL for several years. I love the way they stay on and it is not necessary to keep reapplying. What I don't like is the way YSL keeps discontinuing the older shades. Just when I think I have found one to replace the first one I ever bought (it was discontinued) the new color purchase is also discontinued. I decided to try the Vinyl Cream Lip Stain but when I received it the color wasn't anything like what showed on my computer screen. I was expecting a deep violet fuchsia color and instead it is an orange bright red. I returned it and the lip pencil. I will continue to look for another comparable color somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stain with staying power this stain can be worn any way you want- applied in layers from sheer to highly pigmented. i've bought #8 orange de china and worn one coat for a subtle look and noticed it last though morning teas and salad lunches. although the look is understated the slight shine and hint of color are exquisite. the formula is noteworthy as well as it smells and feels great. perhaps not initially, but through the wear it becomes increasingly hydrating. must try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New love Absolutely wonderful. Went to the store to get another YSL lipstick color and my rep told me about this. Had to try it and left the store with color #18. It's a stain, so not quite the coverage you get with a lipstick, it's also shiny and gloss-like without being quite as sticky as a gloss. It looks natural and doesn't need to be re-applied after a drink or two. Love it. Colors are beautiful, I may go back and get more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Went to Sephora and I bought #15 (Rose Vinyl) and # 13 (Rose Tempura) and I LOVE them!! I ordered #18 (Rose Pastelle) to wear with the Holiday Arctic collection...since the golden gloss in #56 (Polar Pink) is not available. The Rose Tempura is a deep pink/red and looks gorgeous! Kind of like the dark pink/red that the T-Mobile girl wears in the commercials. The Rose Vinyl is a beautiful medium pink---perfect for work. YSL is the bomb! Gorgeous brights for the lips--- very youthful looking. I'm tired of all the nude boring lip colors that make you look washed out. I used to use nothing but YSL a very long time ago but when they started trying to compete with the other major brands in the "nude" coloring phase, they lost my attention. The colors seemed off and not right for some reason. They've come back! Back to their original bright, beautiful colors. Thank you YSL!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Innovative but Not Your Typical Gloss The formula is very unique. It is not your typical lip gloss, its not thick. It actually dries onto the lip leaving behind a gloss-like shine and a hint of color. If you're used to a gloss or the creamyness of pur couture, you'll need to put on at least 2 coats. It takes some getting used to because it feels barely there. But it does last all day. I bought #3 which is a good sheer coral for the summer.

I am looking for one of the vernis a levres in a red that would look good on dark African American skin. From the swatches on the website it looks like #11 Rouge Gouache would work but I am not too sure. I run into the issue of getting reds that are too orange-red for my taste. I want a nice berry red that compliments my skin and does not clash with it. Any suggestions?! Chloe
Asked by: ChloeO
It was one of 3 shades in the sample that was sent to me in an earlier order. I would say that it is not orange-red, but more in the berry red family.

I have blond hair, fair skin and blue eyes. Am looking for a good red. Was considering No.11 or No. 20. would one be better?
Asked by: RebeccaB
Rebecca, I think No. 11 would be great on you. You will love wearing this product and it stays on. Can't go wrong by getting both of them!

What color is rouge laque, is it a blue red? Does this bleed into lip lines?
Asked by: Anonymous
I would describe the color more as a raspberry red instead of a blue tone red. I haven't experienced any bleeding personally, especially once the product dries down. Hope this helps and Happy Holidays!

Can I use lip stain over a lip pencil?
Asked by: First NameL
I suppose that you can,but I would think that applying the stain first would work better. Personally I would use either stain lined with lip pencil or stain followed by lipstick for longer wear.

Am I the only one allergic to this wonderful glossy stain. I am fair, age 61 and really like the results of applying this over lipstick. When I applied it alone, my lips would swell after a couple of days. When applying over lipstick I thought I had it made, but after applying a few days in a row two-three times a day, my lips swelled. A lump on one side of my lip has hung around for four days without using the stain. I have seen no reference but I can't be the only one ?
Asked by: Anonymous
I haven't had a problem with this stain. I also am alergic to certain lip stains and lipsticks Good Luck hope this helped.
