This can be applied in limitless ways, whether you’re after a playful pop of color, or intense drama and a statement look. Use one color on the cheeks, and the other shade on the lips, to bring contrast yet keep your look within one color family. Or on the cheeks, use both shades, with the lighter shade placed above the apple of the cheeks and the darker one on the apple itself, then blend with a brush or with fingers to achieve a subtle gradation and blush effect. On the lips, swipe one color and blend out for a pretty stain of color, or be daring, and create a duo-toned lip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful red Very moist! And yet, great staying power I've tried many different products and that has good staying power tends to dry my lips!! And if it's moisturizing, the color doesn't stay or shows.... Now I found a perfect one! Thank you YSL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this recently and it's worth every penny. It's perfect for everyday, pretty long lasting and last a good amount of time on the lips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great texutre I love the way this product feels, it doesn't get dry and cakey and still has reasonably good staying power. I did purchase online though, so I didn't see the true color until it arrived. The Rouge pur couture does not look quite as dark on my lips as I was hoping, but I still like the product

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not exactly what I expected The sample I received was thicker and remained on for a long time! The actual product is very thin and it's difficult to put on with the brush provided!

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 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 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product I received this as a gift, and its horrible. I must question why any company would choose to put a perfume in a lip colour, it makes the product smell and taste horrible!! It also means it has an weird oily finish that provides no coverage.
