True Chili (28)

YSL True Chili (28) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte LipstickYSL True Chili (28) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a darker, orange-leaning copper with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my lips.

The texture was lightweight, smooth, and more velvety, which gave it great glide but it never felt wet or truly emollient. It wore well for over seven hours, left a red stain behind, 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.

Coral Revolt (29)

YSL Coral Revolt (29) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte LipstickYSL Coral Revolt (29) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a neon pink-leaning coral with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The lipstick yielded nearly opaque color coverage in a single pass, which could be built up, but the texture was a little mushy–like it was velvety and smooth, more like a silicone-based primer than traditional lipstick, but it was soft enough that it left smaller chunks of product if I wasn’t careful.

This shade was also more prone to separating around lip lines and catching on slight texture, though it wasn’t as visible in person as it may have seemed by the close-up photo. The color lasted for over six hours, left a stain behind, and felt non-drying.

I thought for sure that I would want Coral Revolt. But those weird texture issues make me seriously question that choice, so I removed it from my WL.

True chili makes me weak at the knees… so velvety looking… can’t wait to actually wear lipstick again.. said by person who rarely wears lipstick.

True Chili is gorgeous. It might be too warm for me, but I can still admire the colour and more satiny matte texture.
Neon corals is the type of colour that actually makes run away in fear, well not really 🙂 It is however a type of colour that seems to sit in front of my lips, not on them as it is such a big contrast to my skin.
