YSL Pourpre Preview (16) Glossy Stain ($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, fuchsia-purple with a glossy, creamy finish. NARS Full Frontal (LE, $26.00) is less glossy, lighter. Urban Decay Anarchy (P, $22.00) is more fuchsia. Urban Decay Crush (P, $19.00) is similar. Maybelline Brazen Berry (P, $7.49) MAC Zen Rose (LE, $17.00) is darker. MAC Up the Amp (P, $16.00) is more muted, purpler. MAC Style Packed (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Narcissus (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Buxom Swinger (P, $21.00) is less glossy, pinker. See comparison swatches.

It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the texture I’ve come to expect from YSL’s Glossy Stains: light-medium in thickness, gel-like, mostly non-sticky, and very glossy. This color wore virtually as long as I wanted to, but it wears well for six to eight hours and then loses its glossiness and doesn’t look as even as it did initially after that. I still had noticeable, decent color twelve hours later, and the best part was that my lips never felt dehydrated. It does stain over time, which helps improve the longevity. The only downside is that the color is less forgiving than other Glossy Stains for evenness, and there is a little settling into lip lines that you’ll see in the close-up lip swatch. Luckily, it’s hard to see from a normal viewing distance, and it did not worsen over time. Glossy Stains have a grape-like scent, which I don’t notice once the product “dries” down (the formula begins as a very thin, liquid-like consistency but “dries” down to a gel-like one).
