Lana Del Rey's Signature YSL Lipstick Shade?

Lana Del Rey is one of those media personalities that seem to divide most.
Personally I find captivating, mainly her voice and I do have a soft spot for her fierce almond nails
but her stage presence is zero...today I released that I over share and don't have the best inner edit button.
Anyway that aside Miss Del Rey's lips (artificial as they may be...miaow) are often the start of many a conversation and it seems I am not alone in wondering what shade she often slicks on her pillowy pout.
After much research (i'm trying to pass Google off as something more than a search engine here)
it seems when it comes to her signature nude lip choice, the shade Lana Del Rey relies on is 
YSL's Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in Blonde Ingenu!

Blonde Ingenu is my first purchase from the YSL Rogue Pur Couture range but it will by no means be my last - a beautiful creamy formula with great colour pay off   presented within a luxe gold case, what's not to like...well maybe the price point but let's ignore that for now and focus on it's beauty haha!

YSL's Rouge Pur Couture Blonde Ingenu is of course a nude shade but it does lean more pink/peach than brown which will work wonderfully with fair complexions, particularly if you have blonde hair...perhaps that is where the shade name steams from? Who knows, if you do know feel free to enlighten me.
A few liken Blonde Ingenu to MAC Hue and having seen a few side by side comparisons I can understand what they mean, I personally find MAC Hue to be a little lack lustre in pigmentation.
In my opinion Blonde Ingenu is the perfect creamy light pinky peach based nude that will help lips appear larger and is a great everyday shade but do avoid if you have a deep skin tone as it can appear stark.

Texture wise YSL's Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks are soft but not overly so they glide on with ease, remain their shape with continued use and feel light and hydrating on the lips 
but are not in the same category as a lip butter.
The colour pay off is great for such a light shade which across other brands I have often struggled with,
it does not apply patchy, rather it provides even, pigmented coverage with a light sheen.
It is fair to say I am rather enamoured both by the formula and shade of this lipstick,
Lana Del Rey lips here I come!

  15. This is such a stunning shade and would be utterly perfect teamed with a smokey eye xo

  16. I LOVE a bit of Lana she's such a beauty I don't own any YSL lipsticks and Blonde Ingenu might have to be my first! xx

  17. You don't have an inner edit button! Lol!
    It is a nice shade, I think it can suit most complexions, as I am medium skin cloured at this time of year and it could suit me. Love Lana's voice too!

  18. I love, love, loooove Lana! So thank you for this! Sadly they've phased out selling YSL makeup here so I'll have to ask a friend or relative in the US to get it for me instead :)

  19. This shade looks so gorgeous! Definitely on my wishlist now :)

  20. YSL and Dior make amazing lipsticks. To me they are worth the price.

  21. Absolutely gorgeous, worth every penny in my humble opinion! x


    (i'm holding an amazing giveaway on my blog very soon!)

  22. Oh, this looks like the perfect nude indeed! I like those that lean pink, and this one looks absolutely gorgeous. :D Well, it's YSL, of course it's gorgeous, but man, I really wish we had YSL makeup here instead of just the perfumes....

  23. A lovely colour!


  24. This is my first comment on your blog but been reading a while. I did some google 'research' (hehe) for Claudia Winkleman's nude lipstick and originally I found it was Bobbi Brown 'beige' but then I found someone who had tweeted her - when Claudia tweeted back she revealed her signature nude lip to be a combination of Mac 'snob' and 'myth'. I am fairly pale so not sure if this would suit me but looks great on Claudia.

  25. Woe this lippie looks really nice.. It does look better than YSL ROUGE VOLUPTE Nude Biege lipstick... A more wearable nude... :)


  26. bought this because of your review...and i am in love!! Thanks so much!!
