YSL beauty just released a new line of lipsticks Water Stain Lip Stain (C$49.00 each for 0.2 oz/ 5.9 mL). I found out about these new launch when I was stalking on the Sephora page to find out some newness. These are lightweight stain lipsticks that are enriched with water and with high-shine. I’m a huge fan of YSL balms and lipsticks and I found these were some thing in my interest. And if you loved the Volupte Plump in Color balms then you’re going to be obsessed with these Water Stain Lipsticks. The formula sets beautifully and comfortably on the lips while provides hydration throughout the day. These are formulated with 40% water and Gliding oils which makes them to set comfortable on the lips and have an ultra smooth hydrating feel.
They come in fifteen beautiful shades ranging from nudes to very bold reds.
I received 6 out of 15 shades:
- 602 Vague de Rouge is a nice fresh strawberry red
- 605 Bain de Corail is a soft coral orange
- 609 Submerged Coral is a deep pink coral
- 612 Rouge Deluge is a bold vivid pure red
- 615 Ruby Wave is a nice deep cool blue red
- 618 Wet Vermilion is a blood orange red
The color range is phenomenal and there are quite more different shades available. I received them mostly in reds and corals which I found some of them were really close in shade. The coverage is sheer to medium with a lush feel into them. They leave in a nice tint on the lips which looks and feels super fresh, but the shine do fade off after couple of hours. The texture is buildable where you have more control over the coverage. It does add a nice full lip illusion especially when its fresh.
These come with a flexible cushiony sponge applicator, I loved how it really distributes a good amount of products on the lips evenly. The applicator was inspired by the curve of wave to apply them precisely for a more luxurious look and without feeling sticky. Lasting power is amazing for the fact that the pigment it leaves on the lips as a tint is absolutely amazing but you may want to reapply to achieve that high shine finish. The shine stays on for few hours as long as you don’t touch the lips but the formula leaves the lips super smooth.The packaging carries the same iconic liquid look with a black cap and clear bottom.
At the end I absolutely loved the formula. If you’re some one like me who loves tints and lip balms yet want some thing with color, you definitely need to check these out! I loved the whole colour range, I need to check more shades. I’m gravitating more on soft shades but Ruby Wave has become a favorite of mine. They’re different in terms of texture and finish and I’m truly obsessed! I have loved the Volupte Color Balms but these are totally different. The color range is quite amazing and pretty, they look super fresh which I find them perfect for summer time. I already have a couple of them into my bag so I can reach to them easily and more often.
