Illegal Rosy Nude (207)

YSL Illegal Rosy Nude (207) Slim Glow Matte Rouge Pur Couture LipstickYSL Illegal Rosy Nude (207) Slim Glow Matte Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones, though it was ever-so-slightly pink-leaning, paired with a satin finish that had very faint pearl running through it.

The texture was lightweight, more velvety and thin without being clingy, and applied comfortably across my lips. It had more shine than it felt like it would have, though. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and lasted nicely for five hours and felt non-drying.

Formula Overview

$39.00/0.07 oz. - $557.14 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "luminous, glowing matte finish" and help to "smooth" and "moisturize" lips. It is silent on coverage, though promotional images by the brand show full coverage. It is also supposed to be "long-lasting" and "creamy."

I can see what they mean by a "glowing" matte finish; it's more of a modern matte--not as flat or as dry-looking as matte lipsticks from many years ago. Sometimes, it seems like brands are just afraid to use the term satin or semi-matte, though! They have a semi-matte finish--less shiny in person--with subtle pearl that looks less like shimmer in person and more of that "glowing" finish as described.

The texture was more velvety, so it didn't feel as wet as a traditional lipstick, but it still glided readily across my lips. I found that it had a tendency to pill a little when swatched on my arm, but most shades did not have any issue like that when applied to my actual lips. This is rare, but I have had that happen where a product was clearly designed for lip skin over skin-skin!

They wore between five and seven hours, depending on the shade; deeper, richer shades (like a red) tended to last longer than lighter shades (like a peach or lighter brown). They were more on the non-drying to lightly hydrating side.

Furtive Caramel (209)

YSL Furtive Caramel (209) Slim Glow Matte Rouge Pur Couture LipstickYSL Furtive Caramel (209) Slim Glow Matte Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, coppery brown with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had more distinctive pearl through the finish, but it had less shine than most shades in the range.

It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single stroke, which could be built up to full coverage. The consistency was very lightweight and thin, though it had enough glide to apply fluidly and comfortably. It wore well for five hours and felt lightly hydrating.

Finally, a lipstick I love that I have no dupes for! Illegal Rosy Nude is like nothing else I own. The only thing is, I’d want to try it on to see whether the color is compatible with my olive, back to Fenty 260 self. I’m always nervous about anything lighter, because MAC Spirit looks like concealer lips on me, to give you some idea of my conundrum.

I wish I were wearing more lipstick these days! Once-a-week Zoom meetings and a stash full of underused lipsticks mean I can’t really justify this purchase, but these are both gorgeous!

Both lipsticks are pretty. I would love to have them both, but I decided not to buy any new lipstick until I have actually tried all of my very underused ones and sorted them into two sections, keep and toss. So far I’ve tested 4, 3 keep and one undecided. I guess at this pace it’ll take a year to get through them all. 🙂
Then I’ll take a look at the wish list.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
