Yves Saint Laurent 'Rouge Pur Couture - The Mats' Lipstick
Best Formula, Incredible Shades!
I own both #203 and #206. I am pale, with golden undertones, blue eyes and blonde hair. I wear these colors both during the day, and pretty much never use anything else since I've gotten them. The #203 shade is a very true red, and since I am pale, it is a huge WOW red. These lipsticks are completely opaque. #206 is more of an intense blackberry shade, and definitely makes a statement- especially good with trendy, dark colored outfits and hair up in a top-knot. I love the formula of these, it is very luxurious and creamy, does not settle into any little lip lines, though I'm 25 so I just have the normal ones and not from aging. These also make my lips look smoother and the fact that my teeth are very white becomes something everyone comments on with these shades. Basically if you have the confidence to wear bold shades, you'll end up stockpiling backups of these two. They are also good under the glossy stains, I pair #206 with glossy stain #2, and #203 with glossy stain #20, though #9 or #10 would also work.
I really like the color of this 007 Cognac lipstick. I have trouble finding a color that goes well with my reddish complexion, but this is so pretty and can be applied like a lip-stain as well as a regular lipstick. The only problem is that being a matte type of lipstick, the lipstick is rather dry feeling, but doesn't seem to be really "drying to the lips".
Love this red!!
This is my 4th YSL purchase and I am still not disappointed. I bought the #203 and it is truly a red with blue tones. The red stays in place (red can be tough to wear) and I use a lip balm underneath so it doesn't bleed into my lip lines. This is a bit expensive - but worth it!!
not matte enough
disappointed with this lipstick...............it was not what i would call matte.....too creamy & not enough matte consistancy (for me )............for the price i was hoping for more........sorry had to return it :(
