Product Overview

Rouge Pur Couture – Pure Colour Satiny Radiance in No. 13, Le Orange

If you are looking for instance glamour then this is the one for you 🙂

I’ve used nothing but this shade for years now, some days I just apply my Mascara and this lipstick and feel just as amazing as I do with a full make-up application.


The luxurious signature gold colour packaging gives an opulent appearance that graces any handbag or purse, I love the shiny smooth finish.  I use the lid as a mirror to put on my ‘lippy’, much better than having to carry a compact around.

I feel quite special when removing this product from my handbag to apply, the YSL logo looks impressive.  It’s a great size, weighs next to nothing but is held robust container with a very secure ‘shut tight’ lid.


As the title implies it has a silky texture with a satiny look, not too shiny either but with the class and elegance that you would expect from a YSL product.

The lipstick is not too soft, making it last longer.  I expect mine to last me 6 months, and that is with almost daily use.

You can apply straight to the lips, you will find that you only have to glide over gently to deliver the instant Impact and look giving a rich and deep cover.

Quality and Value

I have been doubted for stating to friends that I only need to purchase two a year despite wearing it almost every day!  The texture lends itself to a durable hard wearing lipstick because you really only need to apply one thin coat and the results are truly incredible.

I receive many compliments regarding my YSL lipstick, yes, it really is that brilliant!

If you were to have a think about how many lipsticks you might buy per annum of say, a cheaper brand that doesn’t always deliver on quality, compared to the purchase of two lipsticks a year that really do make a difference then in my opinion you have something speaks for itself with regard to value.

I cannot praise it enough :)))

Choice of shade

For me it has to be No.  13 Le Orange because that’s the shade that enhances my skin tone and gives me the instant impact that I love.  I appreciate the we need to take into consideration our different skin tones and shade.

The theme of my blog is “stand out don’t blend in”  This is my number 1 product for this sentiment.

The vogue is that pink/cooler skin tones should go for Pinks, pale shades,  I would try a Blue/Red shade which is deeper and darker in colour and gives the wearer a serious & sophisticated look.

Peach/warm skin tones should go for Peaches, neutrals and an Orange Red (No.  13 for example, provides a brighter and more vibrant look)

for those of you with darker skin I would recommend that you consider deep Purple, shades of Red or vibrant pinks.
