YSL has nailed long-wear shiny colour with the innovative Yves Saint Laurent Vernis a Levres Water Lip Stain, an ultra-comfortable lightweight but buildable glossy stain.
Make a splash with this lightweight and non-sticky lip gloss formula from YSL. Its thin consistency creates a luxurious wet-look finish that feels both hydrating and smoothing on the lips and will leave a very thin colour stain coupled with vivid pigment.
The wave-inspired applicator makes it easy to apply and it has been cleverly designed to give precise results - the fine tip and flat shape helps to distribute the gloss as it adapts to the natural curve of the lips. You can choose to go sheer with just one coat, offering a subtle pop of colour or if you prefer something more intense, the buildable formula allows you to increase the pigment to achieve a bolder effect.
Why We Love It
We’re partial to a great lipgloss and love the effect it gives to our lips. However, the problem with shiny lip products is that they don’t tend to last for very long and disappear quicker than you can finish your first coffee of the day! The YSL Water Lip Stain provides a longer-lasting and fruity scented lustrous sheen to your lips that will eventually fade evenly into a moisturising stain, so you remain looking put-together throughout the day without having to worry about topping up every half an hour.
How To Use It
These versatile lip stains offer three different levels of coverage that are adjustable according to how much you apply. For light coverage, opt for one layer using the applicator; start at the cupids bow in the centre of the lips moving towards the outer corners, then reverse the movement. For medium coverage, wait around 20 seconds, then use the sharp edge of the applicator to retrace the lips and carefully reapply. For intense full coverage (after letting the first two layers dry), deliver a third layer, paying extra attention to the centre of the lower lip to amp up the intensity.
Top tip: To remove the lip stain we recommend using an oil-based makeup remover specifically for eyes and lips and using a cotton pad gently wipe away the stain.
Works Well With
Keep your lips in tip-top condition even when you’re not wearing your new lip stain with one of the YSL lip balms. A staple that adds just a little bit of indulgence to your everyday routine.
