Are you looking to zhuzh up your lips for Valentine’s Day? I’ve got the formula and the color for you. It’s no secret that I love red lipstick. It’s the one color that automatically makes me feel powerful, sexy, and ready to conquer the world. So it should be no surprise when I tell you I have over fifty red lip colors. I take my red seriously. I gravitate toward lip stains and I love matte formulas for their staying power. They can also be super drying. Enter the velvet mattes. The velvet mattes are more hydrating, don’t leave the lips looking cracked and cakey, and they leave a soft sheen. My new favorite is the YSL Beauty Tatouage Velvet Cream in the 201 shade.
Wowza! If you’re looking for the juiciest, most kissable lips, you must get this formula. It’s very pigmented and has a lot of staying power. It’s not as long-lasting as a matte lip stain but I don’t mind reapplying it every few hours. The YSL Beauty Tatouage Velvet has a larger applicator tip, which is a bonus for those with plumper pouts. One application covers my lips but I love that pop so I typically apply two coats. The 201 Rouge Tatouage is the ultimate red that works for all complexions. Imagine putting your hair in a sleek low bun with a little black dress, a brown smokey eye, and this bold lip. YES, QUEEN! The formula comes in seven different shades of reds and corals if this bold 201 is too much for you.
