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.
