YSL Mystery Red (23) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium, orange-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. The lipstick had opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging.
The consistency felt lightweight, smooth, and more velvety--so it glided but didn't feel slippery or emollient on. It stayed on nicely for seven hours, left a stain behind, and was non-drying.
