YSL Corail Aquatique (7) Glossy Stain

YSL Corail Aquatique (7) Glossy Stain ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, orange-coral with a glossy shine. It had mostly opaque color coverage, applied evenly overall, and wore for six and a half hours when I tested it. While worn, it was lightly hydrating. YSL Corail Fauve (12) (P, $34.00) is darker, redder. YSL Corail Hold Up (105) (P, $34.00) is shimmery.Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (P, $28.00) is pinker. Revlon Kiss Me Coral (P, $7.99) is slightly pinker. MAC Whoops (P, $19.50) is more muted. MAC Geo Pink (LE, $20.00) is shimmery. Guerlain Candy Stripe (P, $30.00) is pinker. Burberry Brick Red (P, $27.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

YSL Pink Taboo (103) Rebel Nudes Glossy Stain ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium, reddish coral with fuchsia and copper shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and it wore well for six and a half hours, but it was a little drying towards the last few hours of wear. YSL Fuchsia Fugitive (109) (P, $34.00) is more fuchsia-hued. Guerlain Candy Stripe (P, $30.00) is lighter, less shimmery, less red. See comparison swatches.

YSL’s Glossy Stains have a watery consistency initially, which develops into a slightly thicker, more gel-like texture that hugs onto lips–and they tend to darken as they “set” (usually within five minutes, but I wait about twenty to thirty minutes before photographing). Their biggest advantage is that they tend to have a lot of color coverage and wear for hours and hours, as they are a stain. These absolutely stain; if you swatch them on your arm or hand, you’ll instantly have a stain that doesn’t go away for hours (for me, it takes a day or longer to get rid of them!). On lips, that stain doesn’t last a day, but it does last for quite a long time, even after the glossiness and majority of the color has worn away, my lips remain somewhat tinted for a few more hours. They’re lightly tacky once they turn into a gel consistency, and they do have a grape-like scent that may be off-putting for some. They scent fades as it dries down, but from the tube initially, the scent is fairly strong.
