YSL Corail Hold Up (105) Rebel Nudes Glossy Stain
YSL Corail Hold Up (105) Rebel Nudes Glossy Stain

YSL Corail Hold Up (105) Rebel Nudes Glossy Stain ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a coral-orange with only a hint of pink–it looks more pink-coral soaked on the applicator, but swatched and applied, it is warmer and more true coral than pink-coral. There is a light gold and pink shimmer running through the stain. The color also darkens as it stains, so it does appear darker applied than it does in the tube or swatched (just a heads up!). Revlon Kiss me Coral is similar but a true gloss. Guerlain Candy Stripe is also similar but is a gloss. Hourglass Nectar is pinker, less shimmery, gloss. See comparison swatches.

The consistency feels slick and water-like when it is initially applied, but it thickens in about five minutes or so, and then the consistency is a lightly tacky gel. It delivered semi-opaque color (and looked very much like your traditional lip stain in terms of color and effect), plus shimmer. It applied fairly evenly and didn’t settle much into lip lines (only the deepest ones, which are on my lower lip in the middle) but the shimmer helped to minimize the visibility of that. It wears five and a half hours well, and then the glossiness has faded away and the color remains for another hour or so. It was neither drying nor hydrating.  One of the nice things about this product is because it doesn’t have the traditional feel of a gloss, it also builds and can be re-applied easily–it doesn’t look splotchy if you re-apply. It has a fruity, grape-like scent to me, which disappears after fifteen to twenty minutes. It reminds me sangria.

    I have only tried the non-shimmer Glossy Stains (my favorite it #5, Rouge Vintage), but this is making me reconsider the shimmery ones! So pretty.

    Is that really $34? I’ve had free sample sizes about that big.

    Such a beautiful shade! This is the one out of the lot that really caught my eye, despite the fact that its color generally favors warmer complexions. My experience with orange-y corals is that they tend to pull a tad pinker on us cooler toned folk, so…hmm, might still be up for consideration. :) You look lovely in it, though!

      I’m cool toned and have this and 103 which is pinker. They both look good and fairly natural on me, though this one reads a lot more of that watermelon/coral look. I tend to like warmer toned lippies in general.

    Ahh I absolutely LOVE this colour and it looks good on you too! Thank you Christine! I need to buy it, another coral shade to my collection, yay :D

    I have this in shade #10 and it’s such a beautiful red shade. I love this product, too bad where I live it’s so expensive. If I lived in USA, I would have a collection of YSL Stains. I mean, I can’t compare $34 to $50 (sale price, the normal one is about $75) … Looking forward to buy more shades soon.

  7. Oh my! This looks really good on you. I will have to check this out!

  8. Love this on you, Christine! :) As for me, on to the list it goes. :D

    Hi Christine,thank you for great review. Looking at your swatches I think I am “forced” to invest in one of those babies :). Do you have any more shades to review? I am interested in #103. Greetings from Poland :)

    For a nude this is lovely, I will definitely check out the Ysl glossy stains on my next trip to the makeup counters :) .

  11. Love this for a day to day shade .

  12. lisa

    Love your swatches and pictures as usual :-) I want #106 and #102 so bad!

  13. Andrya

    I love the GS and this color is at the absolute top of my to-buy list!
    It looks PERFECT, omg. Thanks, as always, for great reviews and swatches, Christine!
