Berry Brazen (88)

YSL Berry Brazen (88) Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red-plum with warmer undertones and a cream finish. It had excellent pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without dragging. The texture was creamy, lightweight, and thin but had enough glide and slip to feel moderately emollient on my lips. It wore nicely for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.13 oz. - $276.92 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "rich color with intense hydration ... in just one stroke." The thing to know about this formula is that it is quite emollient and has a lot of slip; the formula almost applies itself as it glides quickly across the lips, though I sometimes found it too emollient and too slippery. That extra slip meant that some shades weren't as pigmented as anticipated or that color gathered in my lip lines. The wear ranged from four to six hours on average. I found the formula was usually on the hydrating side. They have a sweet, fruity scent that I'd describe as subtle but noticeable.

Prune Power (89)

YSL Prune Power (89) Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a deep burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and barely-there pearl throughout paired with a lightly glossy, cream finish. It was smooth, creamy, and had moderate slip but didn’t feel so slippery that it slid around during wear, and I didn’t experiencing any feathering with it personally. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and didn’t seem to emphasize my lip lines, which was more impressive given the depth of color and level of slip. This shade stayed on well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Berry Brazen…so beautiful, but I’m not allowed to buy anymore reds, fuchsias, berries, or plums.

(giggling like a grade-schooler at the name “Prune Power”)

What beautiful colors! Love them both! and I totally use Prune power patted on as a stain 🙂

I have so many lipsticks but I may just make room for this.

Dupes for both, unfortunately. I really wanted Prune Power! Having UD Disturbed and Nars Siouxsie though, means I don’t need it, I suppose. Plus, I have PMG Executive Realness for Berry Brazen. Something tells me that I may well have unwittingly and unintentionally over-saturated my lipstick stash…🤔

Okay, so there couldn’t be any two shades that would appeal to me better! I have to stop buying lipstick, though!! Luckily I have a Pat McGrath “dupe” for each shade but they aren’t close dupes. I will just have to live with that, though. My lipstick purchases are out of control.

Berry Brazen appears so dark in the bullet but stunning on application.
If I didn’t have a million and one lippies, it would go on my list..
