I bought this a couple weeks ago and I absolutely love this color, it's very neutral yet you can still see the pigmentation. The packaging is very sleek & high end and you can see the color through the side. The product is very glossy and shiny but I can still enjoy it even though I'm not one for glosses, it'll stain your lips after about 3-5 minutes and you can add up the color. This particular color is very flattering and the best thing is that it can pretty much cover my lips which are quit dark especially after reapplication. It feels very nice and not so drying on you lips and I'll definitely recommend you this product in this color because it's such a lovely color to have in your collection.
I bought this sight unseen from sephora online last winter (2012) when I had a GC from my mum in law. I honestly have no idea what drew mento these glosses, mist have been promoted that day on sephora. And likely I was looking for something new and different since I have practically every lipstick and gloss NARS makes and had just been mega disappointed by a tom ford lipstick I splurged on for my b-day.
Reviewers seemed to really like color #7 so I decided to go for it because it sounded like a coral peach I could pull off. (I also orderd color #1, a dark violet purple which I love and will review). Color 7 live up to the reviews. It is a very soft peachy coral and looks very good on me, which most do not. It's warm and soft and I loved wearing it with my NARS LE turkes and Caicos cheek tink + laguna bronzed. (and thunder ball eye shadow as liner :))
Texture took some getting used to but in the end I liked everything about it. I wore it when I graduated from medical school and I am quite happy with how I look in the photos! The only sad thing is that I lost it!!! Boo hoo!! Will definitely repurchase. As in, I just ordered another one from sephora online ! :)
For reference I'm medium warm toned NC 35 yellow undertones, blue eyes and blond hair!
i would purchase this formula again but not this color. it did not even show up on my pigmented lips, too light it just disappeared. i tried the corail fauve #12 and that gave me a natural, rosy "everyday mlbb" look. i have NC42, tanned yellow toned southeast asian skin. at this price point i want a lot of color! fantastic formula though, goes on smooth and stays on through food/drink. some did come off in the inner lip but not a big deal. its glossy but not overly so and tacky, but again, not overly so. great lipstick! will look into the deeper & brighter colors.
A good every day, polished-but-still-minimal colour, gives great colour payoff that lasts about 3 hours with eating and drinking, with a bit of restrained and grown up gloss (which doesn't last). Does not look coral on my lips, more of a natural rosť colour.
Magically avoids the blotchy awfulness that happens with most stains, but doesn't looks like typical lipstick either. Pretty square gold and black tube with a big YSL logo.
This isn't a product that I would die without, but it does bring something different to the lipgloss table. Will probably buy again, despite the $$$ price tag.
I also have #12 coril fauve, and I love that one for a summertime 'wearable red'
i only need to reapply this thing twice/thrice a day! it stays in ur lips! even tho it's pricey but it's totally worth every cent!!!!
UGHH MUA this one is all your fault. Hah. No seriously, I've never been tempted by YSL products but on my last lunch break I made the mistake of ambling into Sephora and checked these out. There are quite a few shades and I was intimidated because they all look bright. For something this $$, I wanted something a little more everyday looking. I tried a few on my hand and ended up impulse buying this shade, #7.
Coral can be evil for me. I have one of those obnoxious skintones that has both pink and yellow undertones, so lip colors can be difficult, especially in the coral range. This product is a bit magic, you spread it on and it looks very opaque and really, quite awful - a granny pink. And then after a couple minutes smooshing your lips together, it seems to meld into this very pretty reddish MLBB glossy/stainy color that is long lasting, minimally sticky and very day-appropriate. (I also tried #15 and returned it, it was too cool for reference). Color me flabbergasted.
Really, it's a bit ridiculously expensive - $36 CAD, but for something I'll get actual mileage out of (unlike the 100 MAC lipsticks that lie around unused), I'm going to take that hit. I'll probably give the whole range a look-through to see if there are any other colors that will work for me, but I'm really happy with this one.
This product is good! but VERY sticky,its long lasting and has a beautiful color that stays for hours and hours...but too sticky for my taste.
The color you see in the jar/tube is somewhat peachy pink,but youll get a nice deep coral redish lips.. and i didnt expect that.
Anyhow,I will buy this agai if they launch a more rosy toned pink rather than a coral pink!!
this is lovely color and formula is amazing. i find that layering a thin coat first and wait until it sets and applying another coat makes this gloss stain last for hours and hours! the glossy effect goes away after ahout 3 hours for me but the stain is left. it is a nice coral color that suits my light to medium neutral skin tone and covers my pigmented lips completetly. it looks so juicy and yummy. love it!
I have never reviewed a product before because I have never been impressed with a product as much as this one!
I have very dry lips that despite putting on as much lip balm before i sleep, I still get some flakiness in the morning. I hated the look of lipstick and lip glosses because it just exxagerated the flakes. So I mainly used stains and never satisfied as they too drift off too quickly or leave a somewhat streaky look to the lips.
Then I tried this!! First of all it is not at all sticky, it feels very light, sometimes I feel like I have nothing on. The color payoff is great (I have pigmented lips so the colour 7 was not too overpowering on me) and the staying power is fabulous!! I do have to reapply after lunch to freshen up the look and probably in the afternoon before dinner if I have a long night. But the stain is still visible anyway if I didnt have time to reapply.
The only problem is the price.. but I love it so much I cant wait to get no. 12!!
This lip gloss is very pretty but the longest I've gotten it to last on me is 2 hours. I've actually had better luck with the Maybelline 24 hours than this and, I could buy 5 of them for the same price.
