Lip of the Day: YSL Glossy Stain Rebel Nudes in Violine Out Of Control

My first thought when I saw this colour was along the lines of who the hell thinks this colour qualifies as a nude?  The vibrant purple colour I can see in the window is about as far from nude as you can get, and as most of the Glossy Stains I've tried look pretty similar on the lip as they do in the tube, I wondered whether this colour would be a bit too out there for me.

That feeling intensified when I opened it.  It's PURPLE.  Really, really PURPLE.

On the lip, though, it's actually, errr, a soft violet pink.  It turns out that this collection isn't intended to be a set of predictably nude shades, but rather a set of colours which add a soft tint to make it look like the underlying lip is a different shade.  The colour is intended to be see-through, letting the natural texture of the lip show through, adding just a hint of colour and plenty of glossy shine.

I really like it.  The colour is surprisingly wearable, and it's a lip look which is understated and pretty rather than full on.  At £23.50, like the other Rouge Pur Couture shades, it's expensive, but it is a lovely product.  Find it at the YSL website, or at any YSL counter.
