my new nude: YSL rouge pur couture lipstick

I don’t always wear lipstick, but when I do, it’s creamy, soft, and way too f—cking expensive.

I just cleaned out my makeup stash and found myself less-than-fond of my current lippie arsenal. I realized that, while I owned nearly every shade of nude for every skintone, none of the textures really called out to me. I had relics from the 2012-15 “All Matte Everything” era that, while beautiful and well-loved, weren’t my style anymore.

Enter YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture: the creamiest, softest formula I’ve experienced to date. Think MAC’s Cremesheen formula (still one of my faves), but even softer. It’s luxurious as hell to wear and doesn’t stick to my lips at all, all while packing hella pigment and shine. LOVE.


The shade I got was #10 Beige Tribute. A little bit reminiscent of a 60’s nude, the shade compliments my no-makeup-makeup looks really well without enhancing my redness. At the moment, it’s the perfect my lips but better lipstick.

As I pare down my makeup collection, I am more able to justify pricier beauty buys. Back in the day, I was desperate to purchase any and all makeup. Now I’m attempting to use up and cherish my curated collection, making the expense all the more worth it.

You can find YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick @ and Sephora — I got mine at Sephora, but would definitely opt for the official YSL shop because you can customize your cap! I’m dying @ the stars design (´♡‿♡`).
