Yves Saint Laurent Beauty has launched a new matte lipstick with sheer lightweight colour called Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Sheer Matte. The formula is very lightweight and comfortable to wear. It is not drying and glides on nicely on the lips while giving the desirable coverage – it is easily buildable. The unique square bullet design makes for a neat and precise application.
The slim silver and black packaging look very elegant and the unique square bullet design makes for a neat and precise application. There is a light scent to the lipstick which dissipates quickly. The sheer formula is perfect for everyday use and is easily buildable with more swipes. The shades look very natural on the lips with one swipe.
Below are the shades I have swatched in this post:
101 Rouge Libre – Vibrant Cool Red
109 Rose Denude – Vivid True Pink
111 Corail Explicite – Tropical Coral
112 Raw Rosewood – Soft Rosy Nude
The staying power of the lipstick is pretty nice for sheer coverage and matte finish, just that it looks very natural and sheer with one swipe. It does not dry my lips. The lipstick looks beautiful in the bag or on the vanity with the slim bullet gives an edge of sophistication. The formula is smooth and light.
