Nude Fougueux (84)

YSL Nude Fougueux (84) Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with strong, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had rich color payoff that applied well to my lips with even coverage that settled slightly into my deeper lip lines. I didn’t find it was enough to be noticeable in person, though.

The texture felt lightly creamy, smooth, and not too thick or too thin, which made it comfortable to wear but not prone to sliding around too easily. It stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.13 oz. - $292.31 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "rich color with intense hydration ... in just one stroke." The lipstick has moderate slip--some shades are fairly emollient and can feel slippery during wear, while many are creamy but adhere well enough.

I've found that more mid-tone and deeper shades have better applications with smoother, more forgiving color that was semi-opaque or higher in coverage. Some of the lighter and the very deepest shades were more prone to settling into lip lines or yielding more medium to semi-opaque coverage.

The wear ranged from four to six hours on average. I found the formula was usually on the hydrating side. There was a sweet, floral scent with a very subtle taste, though I felt like it sometimes gave me a taste and other times, I didn't notice anything.

Fuchsia Allusion (99)

YSL Fuchsia Allusion (99) Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a brighter, medium berry with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The lipstick felt lightly creamy, smooth, and lightweight with a thinner texture that wasn’t clingy.

It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to my lips and was comfortable to apply and to wear. It lasted well for five hours, left a stain behind, and felt hydrating while worn.

Both of these look beautiful on you, Christine. I am not much of a coral lipstick person so not personally my favorite. I do like Fuchsia Allusion and it is not so warm toned as to look weird on me. I don’t need anymore lipsticks but that seems like the only beauty product I have been purchasing lately. I think it is because I feel comfortable ordering lipsticks online without swatching myself. I am pretty comfortable with what works for me and what doesn’t so when I feel the need to buy some beauty product, lipstick fits the bill, LOL!!

Both are lovely ! I wish YSL got more love as a brand, then again maybe they want to stay in the HE luxury, no gimmick market. Always nice to know this brand is here for quality and beautiful, well thought out colors.
