It is no secret that I enjoy the Kardashian family more than one really should and mostly for their make-up. I realise how petty that sounds but let's face it all three of the Kardashian sisters more often than not look flawless and most of us would only be lying to ourselves if we said that we don't have at least one Kardashian inspired purchase My latest is YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in shade 13 Le Orange which is Kourtney Kardashian's go to red.
YSL lipsticks are one of the few high end brands that I don't mind splashing out on as not only is the lipstick formula faultless (more on that later) but each lipstick within their respective ranges is always beautiful packaged. You truly do get what you pay for in this instance - a heavy gold rectangle casing that looks as good as it feels and as it is slightly bulky it is pretty easy to find in your handbag.
Fans of orange based red lip shades are going to want to invest in YSL Rouge Pur Couture Le Orange Lipstick as it is the perfect bright red that leans orange. In some lights Le Orange can look more red than orange and vice versa but generally speaking I would deem it to be of the same colour family as the likes of MAC Lady Danger and So Chaud. Red but tinged with orange. As YSL Rouge Pur Couture Le Orange Lipstick has a yellow undertone most skin tones should be able to wear this shade with ease but I find it to look most flattering when I am tanned.
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 while offering full colour pay off in one swipe. In the case of YSL Rouge Pur Couture Le Orange Lipstick I do recommend teaming it with a lip liner as red lipsticks aren't the most forgiving and can have a tendency to bleed throughout the day. I do however want to to stress that despite my tip YSL Rouge Pur Couture Le Orange Lipstick has yet to flake, feather or bleed and I have wore it at least five times. As the texture of the YSL Rouge Pur Lipsticks are so hydrating you needn't worry about dryness or fine lines as it does not settle into either nor does it dry the lips out futher. In terms of wear I tend to get around 3 hours of wear from YSL Rouge Pur Couture Le Orange if I don't eat or drink.
This hot red orange lip shade is definitely one to consider for the summer. Kardashian fan or not!
