YSL Rouge Paradoxe & True Chili Velvet Radical Matte Lipsticks

Rouge Paradoxe (21)

YSL Rouge Paradoxe (21) The Slim Velvet Radical Matte Lipstick is a medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was lightweight, velvety, and smooth with moderate density but never felt thick or heavy going on, and I found it quite forgiving of lip texture and lip lines. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted well for six and a half hours, left a stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time.

True Chili (28)

YSL True Chili (28) The Slim Velvet Radical Matte Lipstick is a deep copper-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to my lips and deposited color that was smoothing of my lip lines and forgiving of texture imperfections. The lipstick had a more velvety consistency that glided on with a denser feel, but it was lightweight and comfortable to work with and to wear. It stayed on nicely for six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was lightly moisturizing while worn.
