YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick - N 21


Hi Beauties!

YSL introduces a new slim version of their much coveted Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick. The newly-released matte lipstick, The Slim, is a super thin square lipstick inspired by the iconic designs of the Yves Saint Laurent Couture House. It’s the perfect size to fit in a tiny clutch. The squared bullet allows for the utmost precision to achieve neat and clean results without using a lip liner. It comes in a variety of 16 shades from nude, pink, red and plums for each skin tone. You can find the best recommended shades for light, medium and dark skin tones on YSL site (here). The lipstick is cased in Yves Saint Laurent’s iconic gold packaging combined with matte black. The Slim retails for $44 CAD and $39 USD. Find out if it’s worth the splurge below.


The formula on The Slim lipsticks is absolutely amazing. It’s lightweight and comfortable for all day wear. I’m able to go through an entire workday without having to moisturize with a gloss which is typical when I’m wearing a matte lipstick. The texture is creamy and glides on effortlessly without any tugging. It is packed with pigment for total coverage with one stroke. The finish is a powdery matte that looks very sexy on the lips. There is some transfer while eating and drinking but it doesn’t compromise the colour. In other words, there is very little need for touch ups. I have to use makeup remover to get it off. As for the application, the high point of the square bullet is used to line your cupid’s bow. Start at the center of the lips move outward. As visually appealing as the square bullet is, it’s quite difficult to use. It’s hard to line my cupid’s bow. I even followed the instructions below but I guess it takes time getting use to. After swatching it on my arm, the sharp tip rounded out so that kind of defeats the purpose. I don’t usually wear reds but shade #21 - Rouge Paradoxe is a deep red and it’s perfect for me.
