YSL Rouge Libre & Rouge Paradoxe Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks
Rouge Libre (1966)
YSL Rouge Libre (1966) Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 Lipstick is a rich, deeper copper with warm, red undertones and a luminous sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered evenly and smoothly to my lips without emphasizing lip texture or settling into my lip lines. The texture was lightweight, moderately creamy with a fair amount of slip, which dissipated slightly as the color wore down in the first hour. It wore well for four and a half hours, left a slight stain behind, and felt lightly hydrating over time.
Rouge Paradoxe (21)
YSL Rouge Paradoxe (21) Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 Lipstick is a bright, medium-dark ruby red with moderate, cool undertones and a cream finish with some shine. The texture felt smooth, lightweight, and very creamy, so it had a fair amount of slip, which made it comfortable to wear but required a steadier hand to apply it precisely along the edges. I didn’t personally experience feathering or bleeding overtime, thankfully, but it had enough slip to make me wonder if it would for those more prone to either. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that lasted well for five and a half hours, left a bit of a stain behind, and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.
