|YSL glossy stain 9 rouge laque|
I chose the bright red, un-inspiringly named rouge laque- quite a few of them seem to be named as the purely the general colour of the product followed by a synonym for 'shiny' which isn't very interesting! (although names aren't exactly vital)
It is opaque in one sweep and you can build the depth of colour, although rouge laque is fire engine red to start with so there's not really potential for a subtle look with this one!
This lip stain lasts and stays glossy and true to colour for at least 8 hours on me as long as I don't eat, drink or touch it at all. I've seen some impressive swatches for this product on other people after they've been consuming whatever but it doesn't withstand 4 cups of coffee and a biscuit on me personally. This may well be because I have very dry lips so it dries out before it wears of. Also it seems to set quite firm in texture like tacky varnish on me!

Still, when it looks like this I can starve & drink through a straw. I may have to get a more low maintenance shade to review the formula properly- all in the name of research *ahem* of course.
