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.
