YSL Fuchsia Fugitive (109) Glossy Stain
YSL Fuchsia Fugitive (109) Glossy Stain

YSL Fuchsia Fugitive (109) Glossy Stain ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft golden fuchsia.” It’s a bold, bright medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a coppery gold shimmer. Applied, it takes on an even deeper, bolder, redder coloring–it darkens considerably after about fifteen minutes of wear. Because of its opacity, it’s not an easy shade to dupe. OCC Rhythm Box is very similar to the base color but it is shimmer-free. MAC Impassioned has no shimmer and is slightly cooler-toned. L’Oreal Sparkle Frenzy is redder. See comparison swatches.

The latest iteration of Glossy Stains is Rebel Nudes, which is supposed to combine “the shine of a gloss, color of a lipstick, and the long wear of a stain” plus “use “Euphoric Pearl technology for an all-day 3D luminous effect.” It had mostly opaque color coverage with just a bit of translucency that gave it the appearance of a really enhanced stain. The consistency feels thin, almost water-like, initially, and then as it sits on lips, it has a thicker, more balm-like consistency that is just slightly tacky. It has a soft glossy shine–not as shiny as a full-on, high-shine gloss but more than balm; the nicest aspect of the shine is that it’s all-over and even. The stain applied evenly overall, though I noticed the shimmer wasn’t quite as even–it seemed slightly grouped together in some places but from afar, it wasn’t noticeable. Fuchsia Fugitive lasted well for seven and a half hours with the shine topping in at nearly five hours and the stain persisting for the remainder of the time. It was neither drying nor hydrating after wearing for a full eight hours.

  1. I love how this looks far away, but not so much up close.

  2. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sasha Sasha

    I picked up 103 & 105 and love them! I wanted more basic, summery colors though.

  3. I’m a sucker for gold shimmer, sparkle, and glitter! This is so pretty!

    Do you know of a gold shimmer/sparkle/glitter lip gloss in a clear (or semi-clear base) that I can layer over a raspberry lipstick to get this effect? Thank you!

  4. Oh wow that is stunning. I can’t wait to see other shades :D There are other shades right? lol #JumpingTheGunHere

  5. Oh my gaaaaaaaah. I need.

  6. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Jasmin Jasmin

    This color looks kinda weird because of the gold glitter. Maybe that makes it unique :)

  7. Susan

    Oh, man! I’ve been able to resist these glossy stains for this long but this is just so gorgeous. That shimmer, that opacity… *wistful sigh*

  8. So glad you reviewed one of these.. I’ve been curious about the formula and I think I will have to try

  9. Alice

    Wow, that’s so pretty. It’s not a color I would have been drawn to, but seeing it on definitely makes a difference. I will be trying it on next time I’m at Nordstrom. Thank you for the review!

    I love how the you can really see the gold glimmer in this

  11. The colour is so pretty!

  12. Amanda

    I need dis! :P Haha, I just saw them on Sephora.com the other day and was curious. I’m a new convert to Glossy Stains (and YSL in general). They’re so pricey but beautiful, and the smell is growing on me. Christine, will you be reviewing other shades from the Glossy Nudes collection as well?

  13. Wow this is amazing! Love the gold shimmer.

  14. yellowlantern

    I wish this was a bit more pink than red (because my lips are darker than yours I know this will look even redder on me). But, ugh! This is so pretty and I’m in love with glossy stains and their drugstore sisters. And these have amazing lasting power. These easily last 5-6 hours on me even with constant water drinking.

  15. While it may not be my cup of tea, it is pretty to look at. Is this the first one of this range with shimmer?

  16. Wow this is so pretty! I could look at that swatch for hours.

  17. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Cat Cat G

    I find this stunning! I know many lip products have gold shimmers but these really make for a cool effect here!

  18. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Jennifer Jen

    Wow, this look incredible! Totally up my alley. I have MAC Impassioned already, but the shimmer in this Glossy Stain makes it totally unique! xo

    Waauuuuw I am quite in love with this. I’m pretty obsessed with the Glossy Stains in general as I work as a subtitler and have to speak into a microphone tons, they’re the only things that stay on! Definitely going to invest in one of these. So pretty.

  20. VickyM

    Maybe I will have to look into one of these, I only have Rouge Volupte lipsticks, because I thought the glossy stains would be dry and patchy, since some lower quality lipstains end up being very uncomfortable to wear, so it seems like I might have to give these a try :) .

  21. This is gorgeous! I can’t resist gold shimmer in lip products, from plain gold shimmer/full on gold lip colors to any other color base with gold shimmer.

  22. My reaction to this was something like “ASDFGHJKFRGTHYINOMVBNIZOMGGGG”

  23. Wow, that’s some sheen!

  24. Leslie-Marie

    These are my ABSOLUTE favorite products, ever! I already have a few of these new ones and they are so amazing!

  25. AmyD

    I usually run from any makeup product with the word “fuchsia” in it – however, I picked this up in a department store today (after trying 101 and 106, which didn’t show up on my lips at all), and I totally love it! the gold shimmer really warms up the otherwise cooler shade, and the gloss fades into a lovely natural soft-pink stain. i’m in love!

    Christine any hopes of you reviewing the new YSL youth liberator foundation? I’m dying to know what are you think!
