Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick Review #YSLRougePurCouture

A couple months ago, I qualified for a Yves Saint Laurent VoxBox from Influenster which put me in the running to receive ANOTHER YSL VoxBox! I couldn’t believe it!


If you aren’t familiar with Influenster, it’s a free-to-join community of trendsetters, social media masterminds, and educated consumers who live to give opinions of products and experiences. After signing up, you can pick short activities to do based upon your interests, and when Influenster feels you’re a good match for a campaign, they’ll email you a survey to fill out, just to see if you qualify. If you do, they’ll send out “Vox Boxes” with products, coupons, or singular products to test based on your interests in exchange for honest reviews.

influensterHaving a blog isn’t mandatory with signing up for Influenster, but they appreciate users sharing about their products through the various social media platforms that they do use. The more you share about your products, the more likely the chances of getting selected for future VoxBoxes!


If you’d like an invite to Influenster, feel free to contact me: leapfrogandlipgloss [at] Gmail.com or leave your email address in the comments.

Inside my Influenster YSL Rouge Pur Couture VoxBox were two Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks. These are revamped satin lipsticks from YSL’s iconic Rouge Pur Couture lip color line:

YSL lipstickI received:

  • Color #9: Rose Stiletto (ARV $36)
  • Color #19: Fuchsia (ARV $36)

My personal preference for applying lipstick  is to dab a brush on the tube, then paint on my lips, rather than applying it straight from the tube because I find I can better control the application.  Applying with a brush allows me to build the consistency  better, as well helps to control the intensity of the shade.

I’m a neutral lip girl, so I enjoyed the rose shade the most. It has a rich application, and I think it’s a flattering shade for a wide variety of skin tones. The texture is satiny and the lasting power was not quite like a lip stain’s staying power, but probably longer than any lipstick I’ve ever tried, so I was really satisfied!

      Ugh! I hate when that happens. I forget which voxbox is was …but it was a good one that had to do with clothing, (maybe?) that I answered wrong and was pretty jealous when I saw others’ reviews, haha.
