Rose Mix (412)

YSL Rose Mix (412) Vinyl Cream Lip Stain ($36.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. It appeared a bit darker on my lips than it did initially swatched, and the color it stained my lips was even deeper and darker than that. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not apply evenly and sank into my lip lines from the get-go. I tried to apply it a few different ways and still could only achieve subpar results each time. The texture was watery and lightweight initially, became tackier and a touch thicker within a few minutes, but it did not self-level or even out for me. The glossiness and lighter color wore well for five hours but the stain stayed present for another two hours from there. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.18 oz. - $200.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "full-coverage color" with "vinyl shine" in "just one stroke" and lasts for "10 hours." I bought seven shades to try, and I struggled applying all but two of those shades (Carmin Session and Rouge Vinyle) as they applied unevenly with noticeable streaking, which was only worsened if I tried to press my lips together to blend the product back out. I reapplied every single trouble-making shade three different times, trying less and more product as we ll as waiting 10 minutes for it to set/self-level (newsflash: they didn't).

The formula had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, but the color just did not seem to go on evenly for most shades I tried. The consistency felt more water-like when initially applied, as it was thin with a lot of movement, but it hugged lips more within 30 seconds of application and had a moderate shine and some tackiness. They were longer-wearing (six to eight hours, plus a very strong stain) and were comfortable to wear (non-drying to lightly hydrating). The formula had a sweet, floral scent but no discernible taste.

Explicit Pink (405)

YSL Explicit Pink (405) Vinyl Cream Lip Stain ($36.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a bright, medium magenta pink with strong, blue undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which wasn’t buildable as the formula did not layer well at all (just seemed to make it even more splotchy). The texture was thin and very fluid, which made spreading it easy, at least. The color did not apply evenly, despite trying three different ways/attempts to get it to go on well, but the formula did not self-level and streaked very easily–if I pressed my lips together, it moved so much of the product around. This shade stained my lips a deep raspberry red. It wore well for five hours before it started to look more like the deep red stain than the brighter pink it was initially, and it was slightly hydrating overall.

Nude Pulse (404)

YSL Nude Pulse (404) Vinyl Cream Lip Stain ($36.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium, peachy coral with warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had medium coverage, which wasn’t buildable, and the color applied horrifically. It might have been one of the worst applications I’ve seen on myself in a long time, and the swatch shows my third attempt (because it was so bad that I felt like maybe I did not follow directions, that I needed to let it set, etc.). The product settled into every lip line, did not spread evenly, and the underlying stain was a deeper, more coral-red that, while pretty on its own, made the unevenness of the much lighter product color more noticeable. The lighter color and glossiness lasted for four to five hours before it was mostly the stain left behind, which stayed on well for another two hours or so. It was neither drying nor hydrating while worn.

Vain

NARS Vain Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a rich red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. The consistency was lightweight and fluid, though it seemed creamier and a little “denser” than other shades in the range, which may have resulted in the less-matte finish. It took two to three hours before the sheen and formula felt matte and totally set as there was slight transfer until that point. It was more comfortable to wear, as it had more flexible hold, though. On me, it stayed on well for six and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.18 oz. - $144.44 Per Ounce

The new formula is described as “liquefied pigments with infinite matte color saturation for lasting, weightless wear.” It’s supposed to have “full coverage in one swipe” that “dries down instantly” for “smudge-resistant, carefree wear.” The formula has a very fluid consistency that is thin, smooth, but not at all watery, and the majority of shades were nearly opaque or opaque in a single layer.

The dry down started quickly but was forgiving as I maneuvered around the edges of the lips but remained a bit tacky when I pressed my lips together for over a half hour later, though as long as I did not press my lips together until five minutes post-application, the color did not lift. I have found the wear to be comfortable so far–non-drying–but not the longest-wearing nor the most budge-proof in liquid lipstick, as just sipping water, tea, or coffee caused color to transfer onto my cups.

There was plenty of coverage, so it still lasted through drinking but did start to break down noticeably during a meal. Even just touching the color after a half hour of wearing it yielded color on my fingertips. The formula had a soft, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips and dried down to a mostly transfer-resistant finish (there was a smidgen of tackiness when I pressed my lips together, but the color did not lift up).

Black Coffee

Bite Beauty Black Coffee French Press Lip Gloss ($22.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and barely-there micro-shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage that applied smoothly but sank into my lip lines with moderate shine. From afar, the shine helped to minimize the appearance of the color settling into my lip lines but not entirely, so one’s tolerance for that will really come into play. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and a touch tacky but not heavy or uncomfortable to wear. It wore well for five hours and was very hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.15 oz. - $146.67 Per Ounce

The formula is described as a mix of "milky nudes to bold browns with full-on color." They are supposed to be "comfortable, cushiony" with a "sweet, mocha flavor" and scent. There are six shades, and they semi-sheer to mostly opaque coverage, and some were buildable as two layers were still comfortable to wear. The texture was lightweight, creamy so the color spread well across my lips, but there was a light level of tackiness that helped keep the gloss in place. The shades wore between four and five hours on me, but they were all extremely hydrating while worn and over time. Some shades applied beautifully with little to no settling or streaking, but a couple of shades pulled into my lip lines more noticeably.
