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!
