YSL Violine Surrealiste (26) Glossy Stain ($36.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia magenta–there are hints of purple to it but once applied to lips and it settles in, it looks more fuchsia and less purple. Burberry Pink Sweet Pea (LE, $27.00) is shimmery. NARS Mexican Rose (P, $24.00) is less magenta. MAC Full Speed Ahead (P, $19.50) is lighter. MAC Girl About Town (LE, $15.00) is pinker, shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Violine Surrealiste was mostly opaque on lips, and it was mostly even, but there were some areas that weren’t as well-covered as others.  From a normal viewing distance, it wasn’t noticeable, but in the close-ups, you can see it more pronounced.  It wore for a staggering seven and a half hours.  The consistency feels water-like when it is initially applied, but give it a minute or two, and then it becomes more gel-like, lightly tacky, and has a smoother shine.  It stains very quickly, and if you swatch it on the skin, it stains almost instantaneously–and it’s not washing off easily (if I swatch Glossy Stains, I can’t swatch anything else for at least 24 hours!).  It has a floral-grape kind of scent, one I really dislike personally, but once it sets in place, I don’t notice it.
