YSL Beauty just introduced a selection of ultra-pigmented lip stain Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream Liquid Lipstick (C$49.00 for 0.2 oz./ 6 mL). This is rich with a super creamy and velvety texture that lasts all day. As a long-time lover of YSL beauty’s lipsticks I was expecting almost the same quality and performance yet it has exceeded my expectations. It comes in similar packaging in the tube with fogged glass but the applicator is quite unique with a wider and fuller surface that really focuses on high precision application. The collection really contains lots of beautiful reds with different undertones and shades with some perfect nudes that are absolutely gorgeous. The texture is soft velvet matte finish that wears comfortable on lips.
This post is featuring their four beautiful shades in:
- N201 Rouge Tatouage is a beautiful bright red with a blue undertone
- N206 Club Bordeaux is a gorgeous deep burgundy
- N212 Rouge Rebel is a perfect red bean
- N216 Nude Emblem is a nice and perfect rosewood nude
The swatches are as beautiful as it wears. It really doesn’t bleed or nor smudges yet for bolder shades it’s always a good idea to lock it with a good concealer. The formula is lightweight and has a soft yummy scent to it. It dries down to a soft matte finish without making the lips look shriveled.
Here are some of the comparison swatches with similar formulas and color range.
YSL Tatouage Couture Velvet Crème in Rouge Rebel
KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bauhaus
Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Lipstick in Evening Flame
Armani Beauty Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick in Red Wood
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Rubino
I find some of the formulas like KVD and Stila liquid lipsticks are on the drier side while Cle de Peau Beaute and Armani’s formulas are more velvety with a matte finish that wears comfortable and the YSL formula carries a semi-matte finish with a nice glow and velvety texture that is super comfortable on lips and nondrying at all.
Overall this is definitely a solid win! I have never been so impressed with matte liquid formula than this before. I think it’s SO GOOD! There is a great range of shades that are absolutely beautiful and based on these shades I am already in love with Club Bordeaux and Nude Emblem which are my favorite shade and can be worn all year long.
