Recently, I had posted about my 5 current favourite lipsticks (you can read that here) and I had given you a glimpse of my newest lipgloss stain which I absolutely LOVE, the YSL Glossy Stain #7 Corail Aquatique. I was already bowled over by the YSL Glossy Stain in #12 Corail Fauve (which, by the way, got the Vogue Beauty Award for Best Lipgloss…great minds think alike :p ) and I wanted at least one more colour from this range.
I’ve already raved about the glamourous black and gold packaging of this Glossy stain as well as its applicator so I won’t get into that again. In this post, I’ll stick to raving about its fantastic colour…
#7 Corail Aquatique is a beautiful soft peach with faint gold micro shimmers that aren’t really visible in the swatch and don’t show up at all on the lips. What you get on the lips is a lovely peachy MLBB shade that looks very chic and glossy. Because it is such a soft colour, on my pigmented lips, one swipe gives a delicate flush of colour. Two swipes gives my lips the colour that you see on the hand swatch.
This colour is so versatile and so easy to wear, that I find myself reaching for this whenever I’m in a rush or in a doubt. I can wear it during the day or at night, for a PTA meeting or for a kids birthday party or a movie or a formal dinner. It goes with almost all looks and looks especially fabulous when paired with smokey eyes.
Ironically, though I’ve been wearing it so often, barely ever managed to take my pics when I’ve worn this. Since the birth of my boys, I’ve forgotten what it’s like to do my makeup in peace, leisurely taking an hour to get dressed like I used to in a bygone era….now I get ready as though I’m participating in race to do the fastest makeup so taking pics is out of question :p (if you have two boisterous boys, you will know what I mean). I did, however, manage to find two pics where I’m wearing this gloss. They aren’t very good pics but at least you can see how it looks on me.
Did you like this gloss? Let me know what you think…
