MY EXPERIENCE

When I first purchased this lipstick I was super excited to try it! The shade 41 is a beautiful rust-red shade which is perfect for a newly married Indian woman given the kind of clothes we wear during the first few days/ weeks of marriage (read extremely bright, embroidered and so heavy at times that they give you a back-ache!)

The shade 41 is a gorgeous rusty-red shade with faint golden shimmer, which is not visible but adds a sheen to the lips. The lipstick is highly pigmented, so you get a nice rich color in one swipe itself.
The texture of the lipstick is very smooth. I have dry lips generally but this did not stick to my lips or dry them out. It is neither creamy nor dry, but I don't know why it has the tendency to make your lips look dry even if they are not!  It has a tendency to settle into fine lines after sometime which gives them a chapped look.

The staying power is decent. After a cup of tea, it vanished slightly. After a meal it left a nice red stain. Overall - wear time of 3-4 hours after which it started fading.

The packaging of the lipstick is beautiful, a golden colored metal body with the YSL logo on top. However, the lipstick has a mirror effect because of which it is highly prone to getting finger marks on it which show! *Eeks*! This makes the lipstick look extremely dirty after a while and you have to keep struggling to keep it clean. Me no likey! :/


PROS
1. Beautiful Packaging
2. Gorgeous Color
3. Decent staying power
4. Good pigmentation
5. Non-drying

CONS
1. Packaging can look dirty
2. Settles in fine lines
3. Gives lips a dry look

DO I RECOMMEND IT?
If you want to splurge on a lipstick, I think YSL has a great collection, but you can avoid this one. I can get better lipsticks in other high-end brands as well.
Can skip if you want.

OVERALL RATING: 7/10
