Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

Hey everyone, so lately I been thinking about the YSL Glossy Stain. I actually got a sample pack of 3 colors from Shyam after my face was done. I was curious to know what your thoughts are and what are your favorite shades or what colors are the best in that line. I see it's long wearing which is nice to know. I'm tempted to get one really I want one badly lol.

 

Anyways share your thoughts :-)

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

So far I'm still using the samples I got buy I love no.7. I'm definitely going to buy the fullsized in either no.7, 6, or 29. They look similar since they're in the rose/nudish family. It's wonderful how its glossy but stays put throughout the day.

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

I wonder if the sample packs you get are all the same shades or if they have them in different ones. I got the one with 3 shades in it. Yeah some of them look alike but aren't. I'm excited to look into them !. 

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

I love the glossy stains! Love them. My all time favorite is shade #16 which is a soft purple that looks good on everyone. 

 

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

Oooo Janine, that's gorgeous :-D. Thanks for sharing !

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

The sample pack I have has the shades 9,11, and 7. The first 2 are reds and I'm too in love with hourglass's Icon lip stain to even consider those, lol.

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

I have 6 and 106 from the Rebel Nudes. 6 is more coral than 7. I'd probably go with 7 since it's getting into fall. (Seriously tempted to order that one too after using the sample and loving it.)

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

I think I might be the only one in the world who really didn't like the glossy stains!  I found the one I purchased (don't remember which one because I returned it, but it was one of the reds) to be bad smelling, sticky, and not long lasting - not to mention very sheer.  I bought it because I thought it was opaque, non-sticky, and long lasting, so I was really disappointed.  I don't wear lip gloss, so I think I had unrealistic expectations from the product, but I was still not satisfied with the result.

AHHH Beautylovingirl you are so cruel to tempt me with these exquisite images of picture perfect color lol !. I love them all. I doubt that I could only pick a certain one in this line their all so cute !.

I can't help it!!Smiley Very Happy

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

can anyone comment on how this compares to the ysl sheer candy balms?

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

they aren't as moisturizing because they are gloss that dries down to a stain. The Sheer Candies are a tinted lip balm. 

I just apply some lip balm 30 minutes before putting on a glossy stain & I have no problems with chapped lips, even in the winter. 

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

@emmaclaire, thank you. I am joining you on your comment.

 

 

I didn't like them either. I couldn't get past the OLDSCHOOL lipstick smell. And it didn't stay on well at all. I need one that stays on GOOD and doesn't transfer anywhere else, also one that I didn't have to re-apply so much. Currently the Kat Von D foiled lip stick is the one that has worked perfect compared to this one.

I love the case though and the color.

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

Sorry, but who/what is Shyam? 

I know you've been on here for a while, so it's safe to say that just about everyone on here is OBSESSED with the glossy stains! 

It's more or less trying to narrow down which color will be your first. 

I usually don't wear reds, because many of them don't look good on me & I'm not into lipstick. After swatching a bunch in store over a year ago, I decided 20 Rouge Enamel would be my first. I loved the gloss/stain aspect of it, and the color complimented me nicely. It wasn't long until I got 15 Rose Vinyl, then 12 Coril Fauve. 

For the fall this year I wanted something a bit darker & get out of my pink comfort zone. I fell in love with the swatches I saw of the rebel nudes & quickly had 2 of the pinks in my cart. UGH! So I took those out & got 107 Naughty Mauve. When I got it I almost wanted to return it. It's a little lighter than what I wanted for fall, but it has a really pretty duotone purple shift, that actually stays once it wears off to a stain. So I'm keeping it & still trying to figure out what will be my next one. 

I suggest looking at a lot of swatches on-line (Temptalia & Karla Sugar are great places to start) and then trying some out in store. 

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

Hahaha hey Dannyc, Shyam is one of the senior cast memebers at Sephora. He had worked for them 2 yrs but has extensive experience in every aspect from cosmetics to skincare to fragrance. He's also worked for MAC and a few other places. Does runway models and TV I believe and met Versace. Sorry if I go on about him lol he's just that awesome. 

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

I just got my first one today in no. 1, Violet Edition. 

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

I have 17, 15 and 19! 19 is my everyday, and 15 and 17 are more of a statement lip.

 

I would def go in store to try them out. For instance, I never thought I would like 17; it looked so purple in the bottle. BUT the moment I put it on, I was in love!

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

Do you think you can post lip swatches of 17 and 19? I have been looking at those shades online since the Sephoras near me don't carry YSL :/

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

So far I only received the samples but I am going ot the store this weekend to find a color I love because i did like the samples but i need more of an everyday color.

Re: Your Thoughts - YSL Glossy Stain.

I tried the sample i had, OMG, I really like it. Not the particular color i had on, but how it stayed perfectly for hours. I was snacking on things eating a snowcone, and afterwards it was still perfect, I will definitely look more into the colors and see what's best but i must have one!
