YSL Corail Antinomique (10) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte LipstickYSL Corail Antinomique (10) Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Matte Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark red with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation in a single layer paired with a velvety-smooth consistency that glided evenly over my lips but caught slightly on lip texture.

There was also a touch of product in my deeper lip lines, but the rich color and thin, lightweight texture made it less apparent in person to my eye. This shade lasted for over seven hours, left a solid stain behind, and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$39.00/0.08 oz. – $487.50 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “weightless” and “non-drying” that “stays put all day” with “high-pigmented matte color.” The texture has a smooth, velvety consistency–it glided on readily but didn’t feel wet or traditionally creamy, more like a silicone-based primer. The majority of the shades applied evenly, didn’t separate along my lip lines, and were lightweight and comfortable to wear.

The pigmentation was opaque primarily to opaque, and the shade range seemed to pull more mid-tone and more profound with a fair number of red-based shades. As a result, numerous shades lasted six hours or longer, with red-based shades leaving solid stains behind (even into the next day, my lips were often pink-to-fuchsia!). Some shades seemed to go on and on and on because of the color itself and the underlying staining power! The formula was non-drying as promised.

The diamond-shaped bullet may take use or two to get the hang of, but I didn’t find it challenging to use at all. The triangular point did work particularly well for getting a sharper cupid’s bow shape if desired. The formula had a floral scent that was barely detectable while on and no discernible taste.
