YSL After-Prune & Dazzling Carmin Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches


After-Prune (97)

YSL After-Prune (97) Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, while the texture was moderately creamy with some slip; it had enough slip that it glided a bit too easily across my lips and needed more care to ensure application stayed neatly within the lip line, though I didn’t experience feathering or bleeding. The color went on evenly and stayed on well for five and a half hours, left a faint stain behind, and felt hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.13 oz. - $276.92 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "rich color with intense hydration ... in just one stroke." The thing to know about this formula is that it is quite emollient and has a lot of slip; the formula almost applies itself as it glides quickly across the lips, though I sometimes found it too emollient and too slippery. That extra slip meant that some shades weren't as pigmented as anticipated or that color gathered in my lip lines. The wear ranged from four to six hours on average. I found the formula was usually on the hydrating side. They have a sweet, fruity scent that I'd describe as subtle but noticeable.

Dazzling Carmin (95)

YSL Dazzling Carmin (95) Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium, brighter plum with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. The lipstick had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was lightweight, creamy without being too slippery, and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. It wore well for five and a half hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.
