YSL Arlene’s Nude & Wolf’s Red Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches


Arlene's Nude (121)

YSL Arlene’s Nude (121) Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my lips without dragging.

The texture was lightweight, creamy enough to glide on but not feel slippery during wear. It wore well for four and a half hours and was 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.

Wolf's Red (122)

YSL Wolf’s Red (122) Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque and built up to full coverage with a slight pat of additional color in the areas that needed it.

The lipstick had a lightweight, creamy texture that had noticeable slip but never felt overly wet to the point where it would slide around. It smoothed out some of my lip lines but not all of them. It was still looking fairly good after six hours of wear and felt moisturizing while worn.
