YSL Reverse Red (18) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte LipstickYSL Reverse Red (18) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a deep burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied somewhat evenly, but it was one of the worst-applying and least-pigmented shades in the range.
The texture still felt like I expected: smooth and velvety, more of a gliding sensation than creaminess, and a lighter-weight, thin consistency. There was product that seemed to catch around minor imperfections in lip texture during application. It wore well for seven hours and left a strong stain behind, though it seemed neither drying nor hydrating over time.
