YSL Rouge Paradoxe (21) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte LipstickYSL Rouge Paradoxe (21) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark red with moderate, cool blue undertones and a matte finish. The texture felt more silicone-heavy with a smooth, velvety feel that glided comfortably across my lips but did not feel wet or emollient.
It yielded full color payoff in one layer, which went on evenly and didn't catch on imperfections. The color lasted well over eight hours, left a strong stain behind, and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.
