YSL Glossy Stain was unusual, just wait until you see this one - it's a patented applicator with a squiggly shape (see a photo of it on my Instagram) which is quite firm but flexible enough to follow the shape of your lips with just the right amount of product to get a very precise contouring and an even, flawless finish. The pigmentation is excellent, and right after application you get a gorgeous glossy look, that sets into a very long lasting natural looking stain. There is a slight transfer from your lips when you eat and drink, however the stain remains - almost perfect. Applying quite a generous amount of lip gloss in the morning, the finish lasted a bit longer than 6 hrs on me with several coffees and a few nibbles, which for me is an amazing result especially since my lips never felt or looked dehydrated.
I was a big fan of the YSL Glossy Stain and while it's still a great product that I love to wear, I LOVE the YSL Gloss Volupte even more. The silky high gloss finish, the hydrating properties and the wonderful long lasting wear have completely won me over, even turning me into a lip gloss lover and I can't recommend it enough. If you are going to follow the lip gloss trend this season and you are willing to invest in a super product - THIS is the one to get.
