Howdy All! Today’s review is gonna be exciting because we’ll be talking about YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats, again. But before that, the part 1 of this review can be found HERE. Since you all know that I’m an avid fan of YSL lipsticks, I have added four more of their matte lipsticks, called The Mats, as part of my personal stash of YSL lippies. You might be wondering why YSL? because I just love their lip product’s formulation, the overall feel, longevity and my gawd their gorgeous colors! There’s something about YSL’s lip products that makes your lip radiant, glowy and simply beautiful.
We all know that YSL beauty recently added a couple more shades to the Rouge Pur Couture The Mats, and there’s quite some exciting colors to choose from. I had my eyes on the shades; 214, 217 and 218. But when I saw the previous-released 206 shade, I knew I had to take it home.
Aside from the creamy and long lasting YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks that I adore, I’m also a huge fan of the The Mats. Their velvety matte formula is not like most matte lipsticks in the market nowadays. They sort of have this non-drying satiny matte feel that is comfortable on the lips while lasting for hours. They don’t feel heavy and leaves a soft stain even without reapplication.
The YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats still retain the same flavor that goes with any YSL lippies, which you may hate or love. As for me, it doesn’t bother me that much since I got used to their melon-mango flavor. Another thing I love about these lipsticks is that they have such gorgeous packaging. You can even engrave them whenever you purchase them at YSL’s website.
Here’s my 4 faves:
218 (Coral Remix) – Pretty nude shade with a hint of coral. It’s the perfect daywear lipstick, and can be worn by anybody with a medium skin tone. The texture is quite creamier than most The Mats.
214 (Wood On Fire) – This is a light red shade for those who likes red, but not too much red. Think of it as an everyday red lipstick that doesn’t go over the top. It’s also a bit creamy.
217 (Nude Trouble) – This shade is definitely not nude. You could call it a nude pink-mauve perhaps, but this is more like a muted mauve that works really well if you have a medium skin tone and sorta pigmented lips. Texture-wise, it feels like a perfect velvet-matte.
206 (Grenat Satisfaction) – This mix of dark, plum, brown and red shade is beyond gorgeous! Though it feels a bit drier compared to other The Mats lipsticks, this lippy is my kind of shade, specially whenever I feel like I need to collect rent. LOL ???? what rent? I don’t know ’bout y’all, but this shade makes me feel like a majordoma sometimes, hahaha! Oh my, it’s sooo beeeyoutiful, it’s so me… lmfao! excusez moi…
I like all the shades that I purchased, but if I have to rank them among each other, it would be; 4th place – 214, 3rd place–217, 2nd–218 and 1st 206.
