Orange Desire (33)

YSL Orange Desire (33) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a brighter, medium orange-red with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage paired with a smooth, more velvety consistency that felt like it glided across my lips smoothly but was very lightweight and somewhat thin (without being clingy). It wore well for five and a half hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$39.00/0.08 oz. - $487.50 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "weightless" and "non-drying" that "stays put all day" with "high-pigmented matte color." The texture has a smooth, velvety consistency--it glided on readily but didn't feel wet or traditionally creamy, more like a silicone-based primer. The majority of the shades applied evenly, didn't separate along my lip lines, and were lightweight and comfortable to wear.

The pigmentation was mostly opaque to opaque, and the shade range seemed to pull more mid-tone and deeper with a fair number of red-based shades. As a result, numerous shades lasted six hours or longer with red-based shades leaving very strong stains behind (even into the next day, my lips were often pink-to-fuchsia!). Some shades seemed to go on and on and on because of the color itself and the underlying staining power! The formula was non-drying as promised.

The diamond-shaped bullet may take a use or two to get the hang of, but I didn't find it difficult to use at all. The triangular point did work particularly well for getting a sharper cupid's bow shape, if desired. The formula had a floral scent that was barely detectable while on and no discernible taste.

Dare to Rouge (32)

YSL Dare to Rouge (32) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a deep, coppery red with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had slightly more sheen to it initially than others in the range, though it wore down to a matte finish within an hour or so. The lipstick had full pigmentation in one layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my lips while being forgiving o lip texture/lip lines. It stayed on well for six and a half hours and felt non-drying.

Me thinks YSL is just getting rather redundant with their orange-red lipsticks at this point. No doubt that they do that shade family very well, but….

I love both of these shades – no surprises there, but I do think they are quite similar to each other and similar to other releases by YSL. Fortunately I have CP’s Foolish and Maybelline’s Spice For Me as pretty good dupes.
