I will admit I hardly ever wear red lipsticks but this one I am a tad bit in love with. As with the YSL glossy stains they go on easily, feel comfortable on the lips and they fade off and leave a stain on the lips. Now I have to say after trying a few of the YSL stains this one seems to be a lot more pigmented almost like a thick glossy lipgloss. However it still remains to have its non sticky texture.

YSL Glossy Stain in #9-Rouge Laqué is a classic red, it's a little on the bright side of red with cool undertones but I think this will look perfect over the holiday season when you are trying to look as festive as possible. One sweep of this on your lips and you are ready to host your own Christmas party, it really is that powerful (slight emphasis...kinda). As for staying power it's reasonable but as this is a stain it does leave a cherry toned stain behind on the lips as it fades away. I don't want to go into too much detail as I have a full review of the formula of the glossy stains here, but I think any lipstick lover and red lippie addict in particular you need this one in your life. It's just too pretty to miss out on.
As this is limited edition it is only available for a certain amount of time so maybe you might want to add this one to your Christmas list or think of it as an investment...you be surprised how many things you can do that with.
