YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Stain

Lip stains kind of scare me. I’ve tried so many over the years, and I tend to be consistently disappointed by residual dryness and flakiness. So, when I recently received a sample of the Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Matte Stain, I was prepared to hate it but was pleasantly surprised! This product is sold at Sephora and similar retailers for $37.

I received the shade “16 Nude Emblem” which is a really pretty neutral pink that seems to enhance my natural lip color. It has a very lightweight quality to it and a kind of watery texture which makes it apply easily onto the lips. It’s opaque and only requires one coat of product, but it kind of sits atop the lips like paint. The lightweight nature makes it less likely to settle into lines in the  mouth (although it still helps to exfoliate the lips before application). Unlike most stains, it also seems to fade pretty evenly (although I did have to reapply after eating). In terms of dryness, my lips did feel a bit drier after using this product, but they were not uncomfortable. Overall, I think this is a great lip stain. It’s easy to apply and doesn’t dry down too much. However, I think lip stain aficionados will be disappointed in its lasting power.

Do you have a favorite lip stain? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!
