The YSL Rouge Pure Couture the Mates in #206 Grenat Satisfaction is an oldie but a goldie! I always tend to bust it out from the depths of my makeup drawers at this time of the year and it always gets the job done! It’s an excellent alternative to all those deep berry, purple shades and dark chocolate browns that seem to be my absolute favourites at the moment.
Grenat Satisfaction is a beautiful brown based burgundy red with a finish that has more dimension than your typical flat matte lipstick ( somewhere along the lines of a Tom Ford Matte Lip Color, Charlotte Tilbury MATTE Revolution Lipstick or even Estée Lauder‘s newest Pure Color Envy Matte… Less creamy than the NARS Audacious Lipsticks though! ). Like all the dark lipsticks that I’ve tried on lately, this is also one that can be applied lightly for just a hint of color on the lips or full-on for truly attention-getting results… Definitely, Grenat Satisfaction is another attention-seeker, like Desirous.
It is another one of those lightweight formulas ( which I really appreciate, thank you very much YSL! ) that applies evenly in a single swipe despite of the denser, very pigmented, matte consistency, being amazingly hydrating and comfortable to wear throughout the day. And when it fades, it does it in such a beautiful way leaving an even stain behind – as expected!
For those interested, it does not contain parabens or mineral oils in its formulation, but you might want to be aware that it is loaded with silicones, which are the ones being “guilty” for the remarkable application.
That I clearly have a tremendous weakness for dark lipsticks that’s no secret anymore, right!?… That is actually turning into a proper obsession – most likely! Definitely expect more in my upcoming blog posts!
