YSL Rouge Gouache (11) Glossy Stain
YSL Rouge Gouache (11) Glossy Stain ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright, vibrant orange-red with a glossy finish. OCC Meta is similar. OCC Jealous is slightly more orange. Urban Decay F-Bomb is darker, redder. See comparison swatches.
I might not have had good luck with Violet Edition earlier this week, but Rouge Gouache was fantastic! It had rich, juicy color with most opaque color coverage that applied evenly, smoothly, and looked all-around gorgeous for a full six hours. The glossiness wanes as I approached the fifth hour of wear, but it definitely hangs out and is noticeable much longer than the average gloss. The color itself persists and stains the lips, which is the color you see that continues for another three to four hours (fading evenly). YSL’s Glossy Stains have a sweet, fruity scent but no discernible taste. I wouldn’t describe it as hydrating, but it’s not drying over the six hours it wears for. The consistency starts out very water-like but then develops into a slightly tacky gel-like formula (about five to ten minutes).
