Nude Protest (30)
YSL Nude Protest (30) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single stroke, which delivered even color that didn’t emphasize my natural lip texture. The lipstick felt smooth, velvety, and lightweight with a thinner consistency that didn’t cling but didn’t slide around at all during wear. It stayed on nicely for over seven hours, left a moderate stain behind, and felt neither drying nor hydrating while worn.
Inflammatory Nude (31)
YSL Inflammatory Nude (31) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick is a light, peachy coral with warmer undertones and a matte finish. For the lighter hue and very matte, more velvety texture, it applied pretty well compared to similar shades I’ve tried, but it did separate a bit along my deeper lip lines; it was less apt to catch on texture than I would have guessed. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer paired with a smooth, velvety feel that was lightweight, thin but not clingy, and comfortable to wear. This shade wore well for five hours and felt non-drying over time.
