Whether you are looking to hydrate your super-dry lips, going for a super-shiny look, being picky about the texture of your lip gloss, or have simply grown tired of your matte palette, YSL Beauty Vernis a Levres Water Stain ($52) is the perfect lip stain for you.


A “Watery” Gloss

Enriched with up to 40% water, Vernis a Levres Water Stain creates a brilliant shine by leaving a refreshing and moist film on your lips, providing them with weightless hydrating comfort. It is most suitable for very dry lips or lips prone to dryness from applying lipstick.

Its lightweight, soft and non-sticky formula is also perfect for layering. If a natural look is what you are after, simply apply one layer of Vernis a Levres Water Stain.  Feel like a louder, more striking look? Keep layering up. You can apply as many coats as you like (this writer’s record was four layers) and your lips will still feel as light as ever.

Apart from its remarkable texture, the applicator’s unique wave tip sits and glides comfortably on your lips, allowing for an even distribution with perfect precision. YSL Global Creative Director Tom Pecheux says that the applicator, combined with the unique texture of Water Stain, makes application so much easier.

18 Vibrant Shades (Two Limited Editions online)

Not only is Vernis a Levres Water Stain comfortable to wear, it also delivers luscious, intense shine in long-lasting colours.

Choose from 18 preferred shades of the modern fashionistas – berry, nude, coral and pink. The unique hydrating gloss lifts and flatters all kinds of skin tones.
